Denon AH-C751: Hear things you've never heard before
26 October 2010
Summary: Well I finally did it. I've upgraded my Shure 210 earbuds and am I glad I did! Firstly, I did get these at a bargain price of £50, probably due to these being no longer manufactured. They have retailed for up to £180 in the past and to be fair, that does sound expensive for earbuds but they do offer great sound. One thing I liked about the Shure earbuds was the comfort.
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction, good quality finish
Cons: The sound is a little bright, expensive at full retail
Summary: I bought these as an upgrade for my Shure SE 102s. The difference is incredible with a depth and richness of sound that takes these to s different level. I use them with an IAudion I7, choosing this MP3 player because of the better sound quality and greater possibility to personalise the sound compared to Ipods etc. I agree with the reviews in that they are a tad impractical although in the gym I still use my Shures.
Summary: I saw the earphones in Selfridges retailing at £149.99. After I read a few reviews I decided I really wanted them. First port of call was ebay. I watched a few and they sold for between £70 and £80. Then I looked at completed items and realised a pair had sold the day before for £50 so this was my benchmark price. I found a pair the next day, bid and won. The minute I put these earphones in I was blown away by the power. So much bass.
Summary: First I have to say that I have tried many earphones. I have couple of pretty good ones, but I have never been satisfied, until now. Yes these earphones are phenomenal for me! I never thought that mp3 music can play this good! I have a portable headphone amp and maybe without that there wouldn't be so much differences between headphones. The size is too big and heavy to use in any sports. I got these for 140eur and they are quite expensive,but worth the money.
Pros: Very good, deep bass performance and good highs too.
Cons: They are maybe too open, i mean the music is too loud to those sitting next to you in public transport.
Summary: These are top level in ears! They sound really really good and the soundstage roomy. Detail separation and bass are great and can be compared with expensive full-size headphones in my opinion (i've owned various full-size cups as AKG K271 S, Sennheiser HD595 etc) They seem heavyweight on picture but they are not. Perfect for listening while working behind your desk or macbook. Highly reccomended!
Pros: detail separation, bass and mids, design and build quality
Cons: highs are bit too bright with some styles of music
