Denon AH-C710 - Page 2

post #16 of 38

yeah pretty much the same if anything i thought the 751 was a touch better but it needs power behind it to really shine

thanks mark, it sounds as if the 751 is a solid contender for a sampling ,strange it would require more power though as the 710 is so very easy to drive .i read that the 751 is quite heavy and often falls out of the ear , did you have any problems with it ?

post #18 of 38

i had no problems with that buti always wore them over my ear anyway

 

yeah the impedance and sensitivity on the 751 was much lower, the 710 was deliberatly made much more sensitive because people complained about it.  i think thas why many thought the 710 an improvement but i never did.

 

there was a big 751 v 710 thread somewhere, or maybe it was just in the 710 discussion etc thread

I love the way electric guitars and brass instruments jump out at you on these little beauties and the overall sound is so clear and clean for a dymanic, very good instrument separation and expansive sound stage  .

 

The tips i am using on the earphones are earportz tips.

Yep ,like totally opposite smile.gif ,so whats your favorite iem at the moment mark ? oh and by the way i found an iem that has lots more bass than the 710  , as you may have noticed  lol

post #22 of 38

Old favorites i see Mark , i read that those reo phones are great sounding and  highly detailed but somehow i don't think they would the have the bass to satisfy me ?

 

By the way whats happened to susie q lately,not see her around her around for ages, and are you still buying up here all her old earphones?  lol

post #24 of 38

the 272 you mean?  no i dont think youd like their bass but i guss you could bass boost that up but probably not enough.

 

 

no i havent seen her myself around but i know she was moving house so i can see why she may be somewhat distracted.  last thing i bought though was the DBA's from her.  honestly its a bit of a relief thatthe now for sale areas so crap i never see anything anymore.

Iv'e owned the 751's and the 710's.

 

Both for a while and both burned in.

751's in short:

Great bass, LOVELY wiring, terrible weight to the earphones (heavy on ears) unless warn over the ear, poor sounding mids, lovely highs

 

710's in short:

Punchy bas more controlled than the 751's - as thick in bass quantity though - but not all over the place so to speak, very bright, easy to drive vs the 751's, high sibilance (source dependant), change HUGELY with comply tips.

 

So my suggestion, unless you love to be deafened with the bright highs/mids:

Put some comply TX/T-400's and wow...they simply sound phenomenal.

This applies to both the 751's and the 710's. Although the 710's benefit MUCH more from the comply's and the 751's benefit from the comply's with fitting, and staying in your ear (due to the weight)

 

 

Now my question to you amigo is:

How do these (710's) compare to the MTPG/C's?

Remember to leave the 710's burn in.

 

Give them at least 10-15hrs.

Sound stage opens up, bass becomes A LOT more controlled, highs & mids tone down as bass kicks in more

 

I listened to the se535's and to be honest, unless you listen to jazz/classic, and have £280 odd in your pocket then go for the se535's.

For ANYTHING ESLE including saving yourself £200....buy the 710's.

The one thing that irked me to no end with both sets is the short original cable and the overly long extension, WHY DENON WHY!?!?!?!?



Couldn't agree more - no bloody idea why they did this.

One is too long, the other too short :/

@totally dubbed , I did not like the comply's on the denon 710 , but than again i don't like them on any phones , i use my earportz tips on the 710 as shown in the pics a few posts back ,these tame that brightness just enough for my ears so no need for me to get an impedance adaptor .

 

Technically i would put the denons on the same level as the golds ,so its just a case of which sound signature you like best ,the denon is way brighter in the upper mids /lower treble but to me that is a big part of its charm , enhanced but great fun , the golds are a lot warmer sounding with a muddy bass when compaired to the much better quality of bass on the denon.

 

Also the monster have an inherent fault ,they are very prone to driver flex which eventually leads to one of the drivers becoming permanently lower in volume than the other side or dying completely , a driver in my coppers died and i had to send them back for replacement last year and now one of the drivers on the gold is on its way out ,permanently flexing into lower volume than the other side .happy_face1.gif

well for me:

Going from bad to best, left to right:

Worst: UE Super fi 4 < IE8 < UE Metro Fi 220 < EX500 < Westone 2 < 751 < Shure Se535 < EX700 < 710

 

Currently:

Looking into the monsters golds - will post impressions in the next week.

Really?? MetroFi 220 better than IE8??? MetroFi 220 better than anything at all???? Something's amiss here.
