Cowon Z2 + Denon AH-1100 or Bose AE2 ??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone !

I am pretty new in this forum but I have been reading a lot of reviews here for a long time (that's why I bought my cowon Z2 !!)

I currently  have a cowon Z2 (terrific sound by the way !) with JVC HA S600. These headphones are moderately good for an everyday use with you iphone or android smartphone. However, I feel like I am not enjoying the full potential of the cowon. That's why I have been looking for some new Headphones but with moderate price (less than 150$). I have narrowed my choices down to the new Bose AE2 (130$) and Denon AH-D1100 (99$!! on amazon).

According to the reviews I read, the Bose AE2 are good but no plus. Their plus side is their portability and CONFORT.

The Denon on the other side seem to have better sound quality but are maybe more fragile.

 

My needs:

Good headphones (I know with my price range I can't expect magnificent sound quality! ) 

Portability, I use them everyday when I move to the University and when I travel by plane

Confort, I wear glasses and use my headphones for 2-3hours a day, I can even go up to 15h if I am traveling !

I listen to diverse kind of music, from Progressive psychedelic rock (a lot, a lot of Pink Floyd) Classic Rock, blues, some jazz and electro Pop.

 

I also know that there is no perfect answer but I would appreciate your help !

 

Thank you !

Grab Denon. You won't regret it. Both AE2 and D1100 are fragile but very comfortable. The point is the sound of D1100 is better.

Hello,

I am not sure about the Denon, but I strongly do not recommend you to go for the Bose AE2! I tested it, I put it down after the first 30sec of the song. I will not buy/use them even if they were given for FREE. Just my opinion though
