DENON AH-D9200 FLAGSHIP HEADPHONES HANDMADE AND CRAFTED FROM BAMBOO

The new flagship Denon AH-D9200 headphones combine innovation, natural materials and Japanese craftsmanship.

Denon has announced the eagerly-anticipated AH-D9200 to top off its headphone range. Combining innovative technology with traditional materials, the new model is designed to become the new reference in over-ear headphones. The headphones are handbuilt in Denon's Shirakawa Audio Works facility, north of Tokyo.

Crafted from carefully selected Japanese Moso bamboo, diecast aluminium and leather, the £1,399 AH-D9200 sits at the top of a three-strong Denon ‘Wood Series'. The new flagship tops the range that includes the award-winning walnut AH-D7200 (£699) launched in 2016, and the zebra wood AH-D5200 (£549) introduced earlier this year.

Within those natural bamboo ear cups, a material chosen for its warm, self-damping acoustic properties, the AH-D9200 uses Denon's patented 50mm FreeEdge drivers. The drivers are made from nanofibre and designed to cancel out any unwanted resonances in the diaphragm. Additionally, the drivers are mounted in vibration-reducing engineered resin baffles and powered by high-energy magnets made from an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron.

A combination of engineered Japanese leather and memory foam earpads ensure a precise, comfortable fit. The aluminium headband's lightness and minimal side-pressure also combine with a natural leather cushion to make sure that the headphones will remain in place and maintain comfortable even during extended listening sessions.

The AH-D9200 is supplied with two detachable cables: a 3.0m silver-coated oxygen-free copper connector fitted with a 6.3mm plug for home listening and a shorter 1.3m cable with a 3.5mm plug for portable music players. A luxury hard storage case and cleaning cloth will keep the headphones in perfect condition.

The AH-D9200 headphones are available now for £1,399 through authorised Denon retailers.
