Denon have announced UK availability of the AH-NC732 Noise-Cancelling Headphones, a high-end set which promises up to 99-percent noise reduction. Dual 40mm drivers work with the active cancellation system to adjust the sound pressure balance in front of, and behind, the diaphragm; the result is a "cone of silence".
Power for the noise-cancellation system is courtesy of a single AAA battery, with Denon suggesting a full 40hrs use before it needs replacing. The ear-pads are leather covered, the whole set fold flat for storage, and they weigh just 160g including the cable.
Included in the hard-shell carry case are the headphones themselves, an airplane dual-plug adapter, 3.5mm stereo plug adapter, 1/4-inch adapter and two interchangeable cables, 0.7m and 1.5m. There's also space in the case for a PMP. The Denon AH-NC732 Noise-Cancelling Headphones are available now, priced at around £249 ($405).
