Tour & Design

Tour

The Denon AH-NC732 headphones are made from black plastic that has a dull luster. The on-ear cups have foam pads covered with soft plastic, can fold up into the band, and can rotate about 135 degrees.

The band has a metal core, is extendable, and is also padded.

***Note the length of band extension. This is about average, but should let these things

fit just about any head (click for larger image).***

The left ear cup has a recessed 1/8-inch port for the audio cable. The right ear cup has a battery cavity that seats a single AAA, an on/off switch, and an LED to let you know if the active cancellation feature is engaged.

The headphone stray from your head quite a bit around the temples (click for larger image). From the side, however, the headphones look sharp *** (click for larger image)******.***

**In the Box**

In the Denon AH-NC732s' box, you will find the following: airplane adapter, 1/4-inch adapter, detatchable cables (2.3 feet and 4.92 feet), a single AAA battery, and a carrying case.

***While this is more than lower-end headphones will give you, for headphones

in the AH-NC732s' class this is a standard set of included items.***

**Durability***(8.00)*

Overall, the AH-NC732s seem very durable. They have a good cord guard around their plug, and the plug itself is bent at a 90-degree angle. This design tends to last a bit longer than straight plugs, which can quickly wear down the cables inside the cord.

**Aesthetics***(6.00)*

The AH-NC732s are a small set of on-ears, slightly smaller than the Bose QuietComfort 3s. They have a very reserved aesthetic, but it's clean, simple, and won't embarrass you. While we definitely thought they were nice looking, there isn't any wow factor at all. The only notable aesthetic factor we noticed (other than a general sense of 'these look ok') was that, when worn, the AH-NC732s tend to curve away from the natural curve of the head. A little above your temples, the band will fall away from your head before arcing back to meet the cups. This could look a bit silly at times. Otherwise, however, the Denon AH-NC732 headphones have a nice, professional look, but are a bit too plain to have any real charm.
