Grabbed a set of blue SHE3575 for $1.99 + shipping.   Out of the box, I can't say I'm a fan of this sound. They're rather 'blaring'. The upper mids are very forward, definitely a bright sounding 'phone.. and yet I didn't see anyone mention how bright these are.   Do these improve much with burn-in? What about different tips?
Been using them for a few weeks now... they don't seem to be doing it anymore.
I am looking for an alternative now that will hold up better to that kind of environment.   Honestly, I didn't expect it to be a problem using the Yamahas while working out. I've used other in-ears without any problems in the past. The Westones on the other hand cost me 3x the price, so yeah I certainly wouldn't risk it.   I'm open to suggestions (actually started a thread in the recommendation sub-forum). Has to be in-ears though... I need something to block out all...
Since my Yamahas kicked the bucket, I'm without a decent set of earphones to use in the gym. Unfortunately, I'm very strapped for cash right now being unemployed, so I'm hoping to find something for under $50.   I actually really enjoyed the sound of the Yamahas. I loved the bass, the subtle mids and pleasant treble. They just had the perfect balance for the kind of music I listen to while working out (electronic and metal). They just seemed to respond well to a...
Actually I haven't updated my sig in quite a while... I only have the UM3X now. No way I'm gonna use those while working out! :)
Just threw mine out. These things were F'in garbage. Right ear kept cutting out, moisture/no moisture, I'd have to bang the crap out of it to get the driver to kick back in.... eventually crapped out completely. Couldn't send them in for warranty because it was all banged up from me trying to get the stupid thing to work again. BIG waste of money.   Worst part is I'm broke and can't replace them.. so now I have to listen to the awful music they play in my gym.
I've been having issues of either side (but the right mostly) cutting out constantly while working out. I didn't know what the cause was.. I thought the driver was seizing. I'd knock the back of it rather hard on something a few times and the sound would come back, so I thought that's what it was.   It wasn't until about a week ago I realized it was moisture. Now I take the tip off, wipe the mesh side on my shirt or pants, then blow on it to make sure it's clear,...
I've been using my mom's Sennheiser PX100. I thought from all of the positive reviews these get that they'd sound decent. What's with the echo?? Everything I listen to sounds like there's a reverb effect. I can literally hear an echo from dialogue in movies, music sounds off..... I don't like these things at all... plus they crackle....
I'm liking these more and more. The bass is amazing! I'm using the large rounded tips, and they sit just at the opening of my ears, so the bass is crazy... not sloppy or anything either.   Treble could still be better, but I don't have many hours on them yet. Isolation is really great, I can't hear a thing at the gym except my music.
Eric is the person I have been dealing with. He finally replied this evening after I sent a slightly irate email. His explanation was that they weren't sure who's name to put on the cheque because my sister purchased them with her credit card and had them shipped to me. Meanwhile, I already told him to put it in her name back on the 3rd. So he says the cheque has been mailed now, but he was waiting to find out when I should expect it before he would send a reply back. I...
