Immersive Sound, Wherever You Are

The Globe Cruiser On-Ear Wireless Headphones are are designed with subtle noise cancellation circuitry that blocks external noise when you travel while allowing you to hear announcements from the flight crew. Featuring a 40-millimeter driver, a built-in amplifier, aptX audio codecs, and AAC decoding, they deliver CD-quality audio over a Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connection. An optional audio cable is included for when Bluetooth wireless listening is not allowed (for example, in flight). Also included is a two-pronged airline adapter, which works with the headphone jack in most airline seats, so you can enjoy the Globe Cruiser's sound quality with the in-flight movie.

Exceptional Portability

Thanks to their Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connectivity and integrated controls and microphones, the Globe Cruiser On-Ear Wireless Headphones facilitate peaceful and productive travel. Denon's patent-pending integrated control wheel and microphone, built into the ear cup, allow you to easily control your iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone wirelessly. Transitions are easy between music, phone calls, and voice-controlled applications.

The headphones fold flat into a case that's about the size of an iPad (case included). The ear pads twist off for easy storage in the case, but you can leave them attached and use the expansion zipper on the case to make it a little thicker. An audio cable is included to allow for a wired connection when you need it.

Bluetooth Connectivity

These headphones offer the wireless convenience of Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to listen to music without worrying about the tangle of a headphone cable. For the best performance, you should avoid keeping your smartphone in your pocket while using your headphones, as Bluetooth connectivity can be weakened when your smartphone's battery is low or when clothing or the human body blocks the signal. Wearing your smartphone in an armband can ensure better reception and make accessing controls easier.

Traveler-Friendly Comfort

The headphones remain comfortable to wear over the long haul. They feature Denon's pentagonally-shaped memory-foam ear pads and an adjustable headband--as well as a two-axis cup design that allows 360-degree articulation.

Long-Lasting Rechargeable Battery

The rechargeable battery lets you listen on the move for 10 hours at a time. If the battery runs out, the headphones still work in passive mode (with the cable connected, and without noise cancellation). A micro USB cable is included with the product for easy charging of the headphones from your computer or USB wall outlet.

Travel App Customizes Equalizer and Tracks Flights

The Denon Travel smartphone application for iPhone or Android devices, available for download from the Apple store or Google Play Store, integrates with the headphones to let you customize your equalizer settings. You can also take advantage of EQ presets using its simple drag-and-drop custom EQ functionality.

The app also lets you track your flight status, manage your itinerary, and provides access to up to 70,000 internet radio stations worldwide.

Great features if you can wear on ear. BY Rick Hutchins Thu, 01 Jan 2015 21:42:38 -0500

All features are great , however the ON EAR , instead of over ear, fell off my head and
Busted the plastic headband.

Fantastic BY Anonymity Mon, 18 Aug 2014 22:42:38 -0400

Need burning in and some love BY Zander Kane Fri, 18 Jul 2014 22:42:38 -0400

I originally did a terrible review of these headphones and to be honest i hated them at first But they do require a lot of burning in and they just get more and more awesome, as...

Excited, Then Sadly Disappointed BY Jerry M. Ku Fri, 18 Apr 2014 22:42:38 -0400

So I've been looking for a good set of headphones, Bluetooth, not so much with active noise cancelling, but since I saw these at Fry's for $119.00, I headed my way ASAP!

Excellent BY I.N. Botnick Tue, 18 Feb 2014 21:42:38 -0500

These are great headphones - i have any headphones to compare these to. The sound on these is great and connectivity to my iphone 5s is excellent I got these on sale at a local...

What a joke! BY A Serious Reader Sat, 18 Jan 2014 21:42:38 -0500

I respect Denon's quality and build but they must have rushed this product. The noise reduction does not work and the controls are clunky.

Awesome music! BY Joyce Hung Wed, 18 Sep 2013 22:42:38 -0400

Denon Globe Cruiser Wireless NCW500 provides terrific music! You are gonna love it.
The only disadvantage will be it's weight.

Good Sound but poor noise cancellation BY Abhinav Singh Sun, 18 Aug 2013 22:42:38 -0400

This is a very good headphone from Denon. It has got awesome sound and good bass. The build quality is good and headphone is very comfortable.

Feel be cheated by hookbag BY Joker R Tue, 18 Jun 2013 22:42:38 -0400

put it in my wishlist about 6 months ago, checked the list last week and found its price's been lowered from 399 to 267, ordered that rightaway.
