Denon AH-D5200

Closed-Back Headphones with a Silky Sound

Comfort, technical brilliance and a stylish aesthetic: the Denon AH-D5200 is a closed-back hi-fi headphone with real finesse in the sound department. Or at least that’s what the marketing message makes out. In this test, we’ll see whether the sales speak holds up to reality.

Editor's recommendations: Denon

The Denon AH-D9200 is a reference class over-hear headphone model that performs like a champion, with all the levels of restraint required for the most discerning of applications. The elegance of the exterior is complemented by stunning sound credentials, while high-quality materials like sheepskin leather and real wood convince with a robust build that exudes top-tier luxury. The headphones themselves are convincingly put together, with that handmade workmanship really shining through. Handling and wearing comfort of the D9200 is extremely pleasant, making these a go-to for long listening sessions.

Anyone who has enjoyed the sound of the smaller sibling of these headphones from Denon’s D series will find the D9200 the benchmark of listening pleasure with a silky sound. High-quality, unobtrusive detailing across all frequencies is the order of the day here. As such, these are suitable for enjoying all manner of musical genres, with the D9200 making a good impression on both powerful and weaker headphone pre-amps. Only when it comes to sound insulation do these headphones fail to score top marks, but they still deliver more than adequately in this respect.

The most important feature of the Denon D9200 is its beautifully understated sound. Offering an exceptional listening experience, it doesn’t scream and show off at high volumes, but instead delivers a more cultivated, considered sound.

With the AH-D5200, Denon has succeeded in creating a hi-fi headphone that offers everything a music lover might hope for at this purchase price level, especially when it comes to premier materials, high wearing comfort and incredibly detailed sound. In my opinion, this makes it stand out from the competition. The headphones promise and deliver listening pleasure at a high level. These headphones deliver sound that is just as sophisticated and impressive as the outward appearance of the AH-D5200. However, those who prefer listening to rock and metal might want to spend some time trialling these headphones first before making an investment. Elsewhere, however, these headphones shine. I highly recommend the Denon AH-5200 to all those looking for transparent, silky sound and who are willing to dig a little deeper into their pockets for a superior pair of headphones that don’t skimp on comfort and boast a timeless design.

Denon’s AH-C820W delivers an all-round harmonious sound. This is to be expected at a price of about 250 euros. With its balanced sound and universal suitability for almost all genres, Denon has succeeded in creating a convincing product that ranks at the top of this product category. On the other hand, it is also in competition with products like Sennheiser’s Momentum In-Ear or the cheaper Triple Driver BT from 1More, which also perform convincingly. Due to the comparatively high price, I question the lack of other high-resolution codecs and would have expected a noise cancelling option.
