Inside Denon AH-9200 Craftsman Headphones

"Artisanal" speaks to the craftsmanship and quality of a product — factors that discerning buyers consider before making any purchase. Carefully designed and manufactured items that use only the highest-quality materials provide the best experience. It’s true of craft beer, hand-picked coffee beans or over-ear headphones. Regardless of the specific industry, connoisseurs gravitate toward meticulously crafted products that source only the best materials available.

In the case of high-quality headphones, craftsmanship separates the very best wares from other products on the market. Denon AH-9200 over-ear premium headphones are a testament to the brand's continued pursuit of audio perfection, and are the perfect gift for serious listeners who value true audio fidelity and sonic quality.

Sourcing only the finest materials

Ask any audiophile, and they'll tell you the two most important factors to headphone sound quality are the design and materials. Anything less than premium components for the housing, ear pads, headband and drivers will sacrifice both comfort and audio fidelity when listening.

The Denon AH-9200 over-ear headphones feature superior-quality moso bamboo for the housing, which reduces external vibrations and other disruptive resonance. Using such exceptional wood also provides rich, warm tones for an elevated listening experience. Headphones that feature housings built from plastic or synthetic materials simply cannot hold a candle to the audio performance derived from the AH-9200.

Denon sources all of its premium moso bamboo from the dense forests of southern Japan. Every pair of AH-9200 high-quality headphones is painstakingly created using wood grown and milled from this region. Discerning music listeners can trust that they’re receiving the best materials available.

Handcrafted to perfection

Once the moso bamboo has been harvested and milled, Denon craftsmen go to work forming those raw materials into exquisitely designed housings that serve both form and function. Each piece is carefully hand-constructed by a seasoned professional. Edges are sanded down and polished until the housing meet the strict quality standards of Denon.

From there, local craftsmen assemble each pair of headphones with precision, affixing the soft, leather ear pads and memory foam to the housing and bringing the whole product together with a premium-quality genuine leather headband.

After the headphones have been assembled, engineers tune each pair according to exacting sound-quality standards. Before any finished product reaches the customer, it is rigorously tested to ensure the utmost audio fidelity.

That painstaking process ensures that Denon users can hear every detail in their favorite songs and enjoy music without worrying about unwanted vibrations or resonance distracting from the listening experience.

Shopping for loved ones who are obsessive about artisanal and hand-crafted products isn't always easy, simply because they won't settle for anything less than the very best. Denon feels the same way when it comes to audio performance. The Denon AH-9200 is a perfect gift for ardent listeners who prize craftsmanship in every product. No matter what Denon audio equipment you purchase, trust that you’ll enjoy a superior experience, every time.
