Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphone

Overview

Enjoy beautiful music in blissful silence without the hassle of tangled cords with Denon's Globe Cruiser™ AH-GC20 wireless headphones with active noise cancellation. Featuring the latest Bluetooth 4.0 Dual Mode wireless technologies including Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), the AH-GC20 over-ear headphones eliminate the need for a cable, communicating wirelessly with your smartphone, tablet and portable music player.

Featuring elegant and contemporary European styling, the AH-GC20 headphones deliver superb sound quality along with exceptional noise cancellation, reducing ambient noise by an astonishing 99%. Equipped with the latest aptX wireless technologies, including aptX Low Latency and cVc (Clear Voice Capture), the AH-GC20 headphones feature soft memory foam earpads that provide a supremely comfortable fit along with additional passive noise reduction.

Active Noise Cancelling

Featuring our proprietary active noise cancelling system, the AH-GC20 can reduce or eliminate ambient noise effectively, and can be used when playing music, making phone calls, or by itself to give you peace and quiet in a noisy environment. Dual microphones on each earcup (one inside, one outside) help deliver remarkable voice clarity when making and receiving phone calls and contribute to the exceptional noise cancellation performance.

Wireless Bluetooth 4.0

Dual Mode Connectivity

With the AH-GC20, there's no need for a cable to enjoy your favorite music on your portable device, and the AH-GC20 features dual simultaneous device connectivity. For example, you can listen wirelessly to your iPad or iPod touch and send and take calls from your iPhone.

cVc (Clear Voice Capture)

Along with aptX Low Latency wireless audio coding that provides CD quality audio, the AH-GC20 is also equipped with Clear Voice Capture, a sophisticated noise reduction system which enhances received audio quality and includes noise suppression, adaptive equalization, automatic gain control, echo cancellation, wind noise reduction and noise dependent volume control, all designed to deliver the clearest voice quality even in harsh noisy environments.

Legendary Denon Fidelity

Equipped with large 40mm professionally tuned drivers, the AH-GC20 benefits from Denon's many years of studio and professional headphone expertise, delivering a natural tonal balance free from exaggerated colorations. While so many headphone brands have appeared lately, Denon has decades of advanced headphone development know-how. In fact, we've measured more than 4,000 people's ears and distribution of facial structures, to ensure that everyone everywhere can enjoy the best in sound quality and comfort.

Contemporary European Design

Equipped with memory foam earpads, the AH-GC20 features comfortable over-ear fit along with fatigue-free listening due to the use of advanced lightweight materials, including aluminum alloy spur hangars that feature dual axis rotation, along with a lightweight padded headband. Weighing in at only 9 ounces, the AH-GC20 lets you listen in comfort, even over many hours.

Exclusive Denon Travel

Smartphone App

Designed for Denon Globe Cruiser headphones, our Denon Travel smartphone app is the perfect complement to the AH-GC20, giving you fingertip control with a range of functions, and it's available in iOS and Android™ versions for compatibility with the widest range of smartphone models.

Full Accessory Kit Included

While AH-GC20 owners will undoubtedly be listening wirelessly via Bluetooth most of the time, we also include a headphone cable when wireless usage isn't permitted (such as airplane take-offs and landings). The kit also includes a 3.5mm-¼" standard headphone plug adaptor for connection to home and studio audio gear, as well as an airplane adapter plug. The included USB Micro-B cable lets you charge the AH-GC20 lithium-ion battery from any USB charger or computer USB port. To enjoy up to a full 20 hours of wireless listening, the AH-GC20 recharges in only 3 hours. If the battery is depleted and there's no USB port for recharging available, you can still enjoy listening to music via the included audio cable.

We also include a deluxe carrying case for the AH-GC20 headphones and the accessories, to keep everything together when you're on the go.

Q&A - AH-GC20

Connecting my AH-GC20 headphones to my Windows 10 PC was easy and they work perfectly as headphones. How do I test the microphone? The PC recognises the AH-GC20 as a "Headset" with a mic but testing the mic gets the message "The computer did not hear anyt

Asked by: kewlers
Hello Kewlers, You will need to use the adapter that came with the unit that is two pronged. It plugs into the mic and the headphones on the laptop.

Tried using this headset wired with the Astro Mix Amp Pro and even with a USB-reciever, but results were no sound. I know the Astro Mix Amp only works with a 4-pole 3.5mm jack. Is the jack that follows with the headset a 3-pole, and if so can I switch?

Asked by: KFB22
Hello KFB22, The headset only has a 3 pole 3.5mm jack. You will need to change to a 4 pole. That is not something we carry, you would have to get it aftermarket.

I have a Denon AVR-S910W. Will the AH-GC20 work wirelessly with this receiver?

Asked by: Philip
Our AV receivers do not transmit audio using Bluetooth. To use these headphones with the AVR-S910W you will need to connect them to the 1/4 Inch headphone jack on the front of the receiver.

I have been looking for wireless over the ear headphones but all I see mention is that they work for smartphones, tablets, etc. but no mention of working with smart TV's. Does this set work with smart TVs?

Asked by: bigdogdad
In order for these headphones to connect wirelessly to your smart TV, the TV would need to be able to transmit audio over Bluetooth, the same way that a smartphone, or tablet does. I have not heard of a TV with this capability, but there are various external transmitters available which may be able to connect to the TV's audio output.

WIll these headpones connect to the new Heos AVR unit?

Asked by: Fishdoc
Hello. There would be no way to use these headphones with the HEOS AVR. It does not have a headphone jack, and does not transmit audio using Bluetooth.
