Summary: I don't know much about the finer points of audio but I do know what I like and these are not up to my personal preferred specifications. 1). They are way to bassy 2). The initial part of the lead is short. 3). The supplied tips were not comfortable 4). They are surprisingly solid, read heavy 5).
Excerpt: Denon have a fantastic reputation as making some of the best hi-fi and audio equipment these headphones definitely do not disappoint. Some of the features i particularly like are the in ear canal-type design, which brings the music directly into your ear which also helps to reduce ambient noise and lets you enjoy the music to its full potential, they also use an "acoustic optimizer" to balance out the pressure that builds up behind and in front of the driver for a more...
Summary: Bought to replace my third set of Shure E2Cs (which give great sound performance until they break).

Enter the Denons.
Summary: I have had this earphones for the last month after having the creative ep 830. I am relatively new to high end earphones and i listen mostly to hip hop and reggae and my opinion is based on this. I found the bass adequate, nothing special, would prefer if it were a little bit stronger. The high notes are well represented BUT when you turn up the volume, they hurt your ears. Compared to the EP 830, this is one of its negative aspects.
Summary: Von der Klangqualität sind die Ohrhörer im Vergleich zum iGrado (für mich die Referenz) eher befriedigend. Die Bässe sind, vorausgesetzt man nimmt den richtigen Ohradapter, sehr knackig. Die Mitten sind eher unterrepräsentiert, die Höhen in Ordnung, die Bühne relativ eng. Die Bewertung der Zeitschrift Audio kann ich leider nur bedingt nachvollziehen. Der Grund, warum ich die Denon AH-C 551 zurückgeschickt habe, ist aber der sehr schlechte Tragekomfort.
