Abstract : Let $H_n$ be the $n$-th harmonic number and let $v_n$ be its denominator. Shiu has proved that there are infinite many positive integers $n$ with $v_n =v_{n+1}$. Recently, Wu and Chen have proved that the set of positive integers $n$ with $v_n = v_{n+1}$ has density one. They also have proved that the same result is true for the denominators of alternating harmonic numbers. In this paper, we prove that the result is true for the denominators of $\varepsilon$-harmonic numbers, where $\varepsilon=\{ \varepsilon_i \}_{i=1}^\infty $ is a pure recurring sequence with $\varepsilon_i\in \{-1,1\}$.
