Fantastic Fit Poor Sound,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Denon AH-C252 Earphones - Black (Electronics)
I so wanted to like these earphones. The build quality is very good, the left and right phones are equal length (a must for me)and they have a gold plated L shaped plug. But the real pluss with the AH-C252's is that the ear buds are angled forward to fit better into the ear canal. This gives the best, most comfortable and secure fit I've ever known.
Unfortunately the sound quality doesn't live up to the ergonomics. They are very loud and have far too much base, while at the other end, the mid range and treble are very poor. My Sansa Fuze's 5 band equaliser went some way to compensating for this by turning both base and treble down to minus settings and turning up the mid range. Then I tried them with my old CD Walkman which only has a 3 stage base adjustment, and the sound was terrible. Poor quality earphones detract from your listening pleasure and at the end of the day the AH-C252's are just not good enough.
