I have had these philips headphones for 3 weeks with about 1.5 weeks of at playtime. The 9700 highs sounded distant and the highs and bass were nearly completely absent on first impression. I really wanted to like these headphones badly given their reviews here as an improvement over the 3580's, which were great on initial listen.   Having faith in the audiophiles who recommended these, the burn in persisted and now have marginally improved what sounded somewhat flat...
Did you do the same modification? i'd like to see what a difference this makes
I received my SHE3582 (blue version of the SHE3580's) in the mail today. The medium tips provided optimal fit and seal. The large tips seemed to secure the buds but too far up the ear canal, making the vocals sound distant. Immediate observations were that it takes a higher volume setting to reach the same volume on the earphones than it does the SHURE E5C's, my 8 year old daily commute phones. Is this related to the sensativity rating of headphones? The clarity and...
wow. i havent heard the name aiwa in at least two decades.
Hi Jollyo,   I've recently put faith in our fellow reviewer members and placed an order for the Philips 3570 and the 9700 ($7 and $22usd respectively) on e-bay. The 3570 (& and newer 3580) have really impressed many at that price point and the 9700 (older out of production model) was a slight upgrade above the 3570. If either fit your budget, i'd recommend reading some of the forum reviews on these two and decide. I am devoted user to my shure E5c's from many many...
omg thanks for the tip. almost pulled the trigger. Thanks for the warning.   I wanted to try some of the other sonys and jvc's forementioned after reading through the 200+ pages posts but they most of these noteworthy items are JDM only and not readily available in the states. :(
Wanted to post a thank you for this discovery thread. I'll be putting in an order for the Philips SHE9750 and the SHE3590
I'm interested in these headphones and wonder if these require some sort of amplification to really ease into the sweet spot.   Within the price range, I considered the Westone 3 but heard the problems regarding fitment since these are larger than the Westone 1 & 2's.
*agreed. Im a fan of the ety HF5's. Mine were lost and i have been missing them ever since.   Currently using Sony MDR-EX310 ($75) which have grown to love after the break-in period. Much more fuller bass but not the same clarity offered in the HF5s. Perfectly fine for commuting and came with 5 ear bud seal sizes.   Before the ETY HF5s, were the Shure E4c's which really were nice 4 years ago but really became outdated with today's earbuds. They dont produce...
I received my e4c's last week and have been using them on and off over the weekend. about 5 hours accumulatively. Another 4 hours thus far on the commute to and from work. Have to say the high and midrange is adequate and clear. The lows are ok. Definitely arent in the same ballpark with my e5c's in terms of bass. With the e5c's you can really hear the finer details in the music. the e4c's would just play enough for you to notice something you didnt hear...
