Product Research


Sport Headphones: The Denon AH-W150 Bluetooth in-ear headphones were designed to be sweat proof and feature built in air cushions on each side for comfort and added ventilation. Denon's Exercise Freak headphones feature a flexible neckband and articulating in-ear design to fit you perfectly. Exercise Freak in-ear headphones feature an integrated amplifier and are professionally tuned to provide powerful bass to energize your workouts. Denon's Exercise Freak Bluetooth in-ear headphones are geared towards anyone who wants to get in shape while enjoying their music.

  • Anti-Microbial Silicon Ear Tips: The Exercise Freak in-ear headphones come with 4 pair of anti-microbial silicon ear tips (XS, S, M, L).
  • Reflective Neck Band: The Bluetooth in-ear headphones include a reflector on the neckband to provide added safety for evening workout activities.

Built-in Bluetooth: The Denon AH-W150 Bluetooth in-ear headphones allow you to take hands-free calls or wirelessly listen to music from your compatible Bluetooth-enabled device without having to plug it in. The Denon AH-W150 is Bluetooth version 3.0 certified with a range up to 25'. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone or other mobile device must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles.  These headphones are compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), and AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

  • Hands-Free Communication: The Denon AH-W150 in-ear headphones support Bluetooth hands-free communication (HFP/HSP) for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The integrated controls of the AH-W150 can be used to answer an in-coming call or end a call. A ring-tone will be heard through the headphones during an incoming call. The AH-W150's integrated omni-directional microphone lets you carry on your side of the conversation, while listening to the caller's voice through the earphones. You will still need to make outgoing call from your mobile phone's keypad or touchscreen. Once you have dialed the number from your phone, the call will automatically switch to the Denon Bluetooth headphones.
  • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Denon AH-W150 headphones support wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The Bluetooth headphones will be able to control basic playback functions of your Bluetooth device's stored music; such as Play/Pause & Next/Previous Track (via the integrated control buttons). The AH-W150 also supports audio streaming of music apps (such as Pandora, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM,, Rhapsody, or Slacker); but without control. You will continue to use your Bluetooth enabled smartphone to view and control streaming music apps. When receiving a phone call while listening to music, the music audio pauses and the ring-tone is heard through the headphones.

Note: Your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or other device must be paired with the AH-W150 headphones before hands-free operation. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Denon AH-W150.

Rechargeable Battery: These headphones feature a 7-hour rechargeable Li-Polymer battery and provide audio alerts for low battery status and operation feedback. The battery can be charged from a free USB (type-A) port on your computer or laptop, using the included micro USB charging cable.

Carrying Case: The Denon AH-W150 in-ear headphones come with a mesh carrying case and caribiner clip.

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Great sound if you have great vision

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 9/18/2012 11:13:00 AM

Overall, I think wireless Bluetooth headphones are the way to go if you need music when you exercise. There are no cords, and I didn't have to worry about a sudden move causing the cord to go taut and earbuds being yanked out of the ears (ouch).

The AH-W150 Exercise Freak headphones address those problems, and does so well. The electronics in the earpieces may take up some room, but they're so lightweight, I hardly knew they were there. The sound from the Labs' iPhone® was nice and tight. Plenty of bass, and plenty of detail. The in-ear buds are set on swivel posts, making them pretty easy to get set into your ear. Take the time to do it properly (and change sleeves if you need to). The better the fit, the better the sound.

My only caution about the W150's is that those electronics stored in the section of the headphones that rest behind the ears take up space. Not a problem — unless, like me, you wear glasses. I found that the headphones didn't sit quite as securely as I wanted them to when they were resting on my glasses' frames. When I removed my glasses and tried the W150's out, they fit comfortably and securely.
