DENON C551 OF SENN CX500 ? PULLING THE TRIGGER

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was planning on buying some Denon c551s when I read here on Headfi. that their was a site where you could get some Senn cx500s for around 30 dollars, which seemed quite tempting. I know that I can get the Denons for around 56 dollars so I was wondering if I would be better off savings some money and getting the Senns instead. BTY I will driving them uamped with either a Sansa Fuse or a Creative Zen and I mostly listen to alot of rock , some pop, and blues. I have not heard either one of thease phones so if anybody who has would be kind enough to post their opinons I sure would appreciate it.

Denon c551's are significantly better.

Enough to warrant the $25 dollar of so price difference?

I would say yes but that's your call.

You can go even cheaper and get the C351's or the CX400's.
The cx400 are very similar to the CX500's and the C351 are better than both. The c551's are significantly better than all of them though. It's got nice clean accurate bass reproduction but lacks details in the treble compared to higher Denon models.

Thanks for the advice. I think I will go with the denons. $25 is not too much if they are significantly that much better than the Senns . One more thing, how would the lower end UEs compare to the Denons?

Havn't tried the lower-end UE's so dunno.

Rule: never get Senns that are too cheap as most likely they're fakes. 30 dollars for a 60 dollar IEM sounds too good to be true.

Good heads up, I'm glad you brought that up, I didn't bother to think about it. These con artists are getting their hands into everything these days. Man I know I would be screaming right now if I got taken by one of these guys. Thanks.
