Pros: Comfortable..Ear buds don't pain after much usage..1.2m wire portable enough..Fine clarity..Absolute Value for Money..
Cons: Too loud..Treble is on the terrible side!..Average bass..Weak build..
The earphones, to be precise, are quite overrated.
Build [3/5] - as delicate as delicate can be, the SHE3570s build is light as a feather, with a flimsy, curled up wire bound to remain one no matter how you might straighten it. The ear buds are fine enough with ample noise cancellation and are comfortable to say the least.
Audio [2.5/5] - Without glorifying it, the audio output is decent as you'd expect from a product of this class. However, there are a lotta downers..
First, with low impedance the earphone is loud as Loud it can be, to the point of excruciatingly removing them after a li'l while.
The bass is effective if not formidable, which is not so bad if you are not an audiophile. The treble, however, is a big pain. A constant jabber with hints of tear in audio as if it was made for the same purpose.
A "burn in" test would not suffice as the highs and lows would not affect the overall outcome.
Testing these with a bit of music, from Sinatra to even Nicki Minaj, the output was admissible with enough clarity. Blues sound fine but No Death Metal or Grunge!
My old Nokia N900 headphones sound way better with a good amount of bass and treble that does not, and should not, scar the ears!
Value for Money [4.5/5] - A product such as Philips In Ear, it's worth its price. You cannot compare it with a Sony mid-range Fontopia or an EX Monitor let alone a Skullcandy Riot. Comparatively, the SHE3570 is way out of its league but priced half as much as any top brand out there!
Verdict [3/5] - With many expectations the Philips SHE3570 does not stand true to its words. They look 'cute' enough, but let us leave it at that!
