Denon AH-C551 In-Ear review

 

MP3 players are practically as prolific as cell phones now--heck, some of them are cell phones. Regardless of what portable device provides the music, one thing is a given: the stock earbuds that come in the package aren't doing ears any favors....

The design is compact and understated, and the package includes a zippered carrying case.

The Denon AH-C551 earphones suffer from jarring highs at times. There's no airplane adapter or foam eartips.

The Denon AH-C551 In-Ear Headphones offer mostly great sound quality and a compact, understated design. They're a solid choice for an everyday earbud.

Denon AH-C551K In-Ear Headphones Review

 

The Denon AH-C551K represents the middle of the pack of Denon's recently introduced line of in-ear headphones. Denon brings their reputation for high fidelity to the table with these in-ears that

Amazing bass ; Great value (street price) ; Denon quality

Standard plug does not fit iPhone jack ; Do not stay in (some) ears very well ; Short cable too short, extension cable too long

My wife loves these earbuds - they fit her ears, and even though she is not what I would call an audiophile by any stretch, she says that they are a HUGE improvement over her stock earbuds. (In fact, she wants me to purchase her a pair of the Denon's)...

Basshead Showdown: Denon AH-C551 vs. Hippo VB vs. Klipsch S4

 

Does your car's trunk make more noise than its motor? Does standing on the epicenter of a medium earthquake give you that warm, fuzzy feeling in your stomach? Does your 5.1 sound system consist of five subs and one tweeter?

Denon AH-C551 Earbuds

 

The AH-C700 won our favor by being a well-rounded performer that offered tons of sonic refinement per dollar, and in many ways the AH-C551 follows that same pattern. Here as in the more expensive model you'll find effortless midrange clarity, plenty of...

The AH-C551 is long on build quality and sonic refinement— especially from the midrange on up. On the whole, this earphone’s tonal balance is somewhat bass-shy, meaning that the Demons are better suited for use in quiet environments than in, say,...

Denon's AH-C751 earphones impressed our Jon with their audio quality, so can the cheaper AH-C551's do the same?

Denon AH-C551 review

 

Pure, neutral sound – a great iPod upgrade

Beautiful, neutral sound ; Lots of detail at the high end ; Attractive design ; Good value ; Carry case

Some ergonomic compromises

Half the price of the AH-C700s, these AH-C551s sound way better than half as good

Denon AH-C551 review

 

The Denon AH-C551s provide impressive acoustic detail across the range, a rich smooth sound in the bass, high and mids, with astonishing audio clarity for a set that costs just £70.

The Denon AH-C551s prove that audio excellence needn't break the bank.
