I just want to know what kind of sound is that (even if both are a bit different) and how to do it if possible (different layers and sounds used, especially the synth). I have Sylenth1 and Massive. Thanks!

The answer is not as easy as you hope!
The Idea behind those huge Electro sounds is layering + distortion + short reverbs and other stereo enhancer.
Typicaly you build a solid bass layer + midrange bass or saw bass + supersaw sounds (chords) + vibrato lead (melody).
The spooky lead sound that plays the melody in the benassi song might be a supersaw layered with a pitch envelope sound.
To get the basic electro saw bass (bass layer), I give you a short tutorial for the midrange and supersaw sounds you need to search some tutorials.
Ok get a synth up and use a standard saw with no filter and 100% sustain on the amp envelope. After that use a eq and remove everything under c.a. 200 Hz. then via bell eqs boost a little bit somewhere around 450 hz, cut somewhere around 1 kHz and boost by a HUGE amount (15-30 db) between 2 and 3 kHz. This will sound like shit now until you crank this into some distortion unit. (ohmicide,camelphat, whoknowswhat) This will create that cutting aggressive saw sound. Finish up the sound by limiting, bit crushing, flanging and reverberation.
Then use a lowpased saw wave to layer with that to get a solid bass synth.
