Denon AH-GC25W Premium Wireless Headphones
These Denons are flat as all headphones should be.Let me explain. The goal for all headphones is to sound as natural as possible, especially in the world of classical music.
Natural = Flat. These is no such thing as electronic processors in an audiophiles world to elevate the bass or too raise the mids or increase the treble…Please don’t get me in treble….Ha! I made a funny.
Any way, these sound rich and very dynamic as themselves…These are premium after all.
But what if you wanted to alter the sound profile on these already performance – tuned premium super-fine headphones?
Well you can make a smartphone app or use the free Denon Audio app to bring out more of that thumping bass you and I both love.
Or if you so desire, bring out the the rich luscious sounds of the mid range drivers and add more sparking clear vocals to your sound.
You are able to mold the music to what you want. Audiophiles may frown down upon you…but who cares.
Like Marie Antoinette said to the peasants, “Let them eat cake.” right before she was beheaded during the French Revolution. Now before some of you correct me on that, just know that I am not a historian…So there.
These share the great same looks as its brother the GC30’s. They are both supremely comfortable, no strike that, ultra supremely, plushy comfy and are made with the same premium materials.
Even better for those who love their muzak is that these Denon AH-GC25W’s: Click here for more info will last 30 hours on a single charge. Nice, huh.
Yup. I thought so too.
HEOS 7, 5 and 3 by Denon – Premium Wireless Speakers
HEOS means Home Entertainment Operating System. And I must say that this OS is simply brilliant in the way it can integrate all of the HEOS speakers and integrate with your component speakers as well. I’ll get to that later.
You can put these speakers in different rooms and not only play the same song but you can also play the speakers at different volume levels. Pretty slick, huh?
Not only that, but you can play different tracks on theses speakers from the same device as well. How do you like em now?
Not only that but you can add your component speakers to the mix as well. By purchasing a HEOS Amplifier you can connect any of your speakers to your wireless zones too.
If you already have a Denon or Marantz receiver that supports HEOS then it seconds as a HEOS amplifier. Just plug in your component speakers and, Wala. You can stream your music to them.
The sounds that these speakers are FINE as in SUPER FINE…They all are designed well, but the HEOS 3 is most versatile as it can lay on its side or bottom.
They all have a great bass kick and mid-range richness and clear vocals.
But as in most if not all speakers the larger the enclosure the more rich bass tones you get. So from small to big the richness of bass is. HEOS 3, good. HEOS 5, better, HEOS 7, best. So, no surprise there…Right?
There is also the smallest speaker. The HEOS 1 HS2: Click here for more info. A great sounding all around speaker as well. The smallest in stature but by no means the smallest in sound in its class.
Enclosed for your delight is the HEOS amplifier if you are interested in making your existing component speakers part of the streaming universe. Click here for more info.
Denon DSB 250BT, 150BT and 50 BT Envaya Premium Bluetooth Speakers
These beauties are some of the most ruggedly good looking, awesome sounding Bluetooth speakers around.
Bring them to a room, backyard, beach, picnic, park…anywhere where you can go these can go with you anytime.
The Denon DSB 250BT: Click here for more info sounded just as good if not better than my Bang & Olufsen A1 portable speaker. And they are less expensive too!
But room placement makes a huge difference in where you place a speaker.
Anyways, the larger of the three has a very beautiful, balanced smooth, Verry smooth (Like warm maple syrup easing down your throat smooth) sound and style about it/them..Nice.
The 250BT is 8.25″ unit with a capability of the battery lasting for 13 ours. The 150BT is7.4″ and has the capability of lasting 11 hours. And the 50BT is 6.4″ and its battery can last up to 10 hours.
They are rugged, waterproof and dustproof. In fact, so durable that they can stand in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes and get out damage free. They have earned their rating of IP67…Look it up.
How many devices do you know that can do that? Well, how many? That’s what I thought.
Denon Home 150 Wireless Speaker
This is the littlest of 3 brothers in the new Denon Home Series with HEOS. Just so you know it stands for Home Entertainment Operating System.
HEOS allows you to listen to your music in other rooms or places in your home and surrounding areas. You use it by downloading the HEOS app to your phone or tablet. From there you can control your music from that device using the HEOS app.
But that’s not all you can do with these speakers. You can play music in either in WiFi setting or Bluetooth all while controlling the music from a device. For example you have a visitor and he/she wants to play some music and you don’t to give out your WiFi password to them. Let them use a Bluetooth connection instead.
You can also mix and match any of the Denon Home Series Speakers to use at the same time while playing different songs in different rooms…Now that’s pretty cool.
Each one is designed to be a standalone speaker but you can also pair them up to play in stereo mode. Giving you an awesome left right sound experience. They just have to be paired together like 2 – 150’s or 2 – 250’s or 2 – 350’s.
The main difference between the the three speakers are how many and what size speakers each has inside and how much amplifier power it has to drive them. The 150 has a 31/2″ woofer and a 1′ tweeter with a ported enclosure. This speaker surprisingly gives out a very full sound for such a small speaker.
A ported enclosure is just a well placed hole that allow air to travel in and out giving a woofer the ability to throw out a deeper sound.
Denon Home 250 Wireless Speaker
The middle sibling of the trio presents itself with 2 – 3/4″ tweeters 2 – 4″ mid range woofers and a 5″ radiator giving it a fuller richer sound for a larger room compared to the 150.
You can tell that this speaker has a richer fuller sound than the 150. First it has more speakers and of course has a larger woofer and a more powerful energy efficient class D amplifier.
A radiator is a device that increases the bass of a speaker system. When used right it can give a performance of a much larger system. So this speaker will sound richer and give a fuller experience than speakers of its size that have no radiator.
Sacre bleu!!! I almost forgot to mention that every speaker in the line up has a USB port on the back so you can load up a USB stick and play through your smart device…super cool. Don’t you think so?
Just so you know, these speakers are Bluetooth and WiFi enabled but still need a electrical connection to operate. My PSA is now complete.
The Denon Home 250 Wireless Speaker. A speaker to reckon with.
Denon 350 Wireless Speaker
Now we come to the biggest most fullest and richest sounding of the Denon Home Series of them all. Introducing the Denon 350 Wireless Speaker. Like I mentioned before, it’s how many and what size speakers does it have to give out the ultimate in sound for your pleasure…FYI – This is not a condom ad.
Well sweet honey and warm molasses. This speaker has it all. 2 – 3/4′ tweeters 2 – 2″ mid range and 2 – 61/2″ woofers and also comes with a bigger energy efficient class D amplifier giving its sound the richest and fullest sound pushed by a more powerful amp to drive it.
This one will give you the sparkling highs and the lowest lows that will make your butt pucker up and shudder…Okay. I may be exaggerating a bit in that last sentence but you know what I mean…right?
Let me try that again. This speaker will make your eyes tear up and make you fart a little bit…is that better? Okay, okay. I’ll come up with something a little better for next time.
Not only can you control this with your smart devices but even has a touch screen on top of all the units to control basic commands to the speaker.
The Denon Home Series 350 Wireless Speaker. Definitely a speaker to want…I want one. Don’t you?
I thought so.
Listening to music is subjective. The sound that emanates from any of these headphones, earbuds, speakers and the like, will be different for each individual. So please be aware, what may sound good to me doesn’t mean it will sound good to you. Please read or watch reviews on any product that I showcase. Or listen to a friends’. Or, go to a retail store and try it out there. A little knowledge can go a long way…then you can buy from me. (Wink, wink)
