Sure, just took a quick listen to the Doolittle by the Pixies with both and I think it's a very close call depending on what you want. The E10 has less recessed mids and a more spacious presentation but the bass of the Philips is tighter and extends deeper and overall clarity is slightly better. Bass impact is pretty similar, the E10 is just softer-sounding while the SHE3580 is tighter.
I'm curious to hear what your thoughts are when comparing the JVC-HAFXT90, Yamaha EPH-100, Sony MDR-EX600, Vsonic Gr07 mk2, and for fun I'll toss in the Sony XB90EX and Brainwavz M5.
If you have heard any of the above, I'd like your input. They are on my short list of iems to purchase for my upcoming birthday. If you haven't guessed, the kind of sound I am looking for is excellent subbass and bass presence with non-recessed mids. (For bass, subbbass >= midbass is my taste)
If any of the above happen to have fantastic treble in addition, then that makes them a more likely purchase. Factors I am also considering include detail and soundstage.
Recommendations are also welcome.
Thanks in advance.
And if you happen to know a mic'd iem with the sound of the one you recommend out of those, I'd like to know as well.
I haven't heard the XB90EX and the M5 isn't really on-par with those other ones. I haven't heard the VSonic GR07 mkII, either. There are extensive comparisons to the GR07 mkI in the FXT90, EPH-100, and EX600 reviews on the front page of this thread. The GR07 is pretty balanced with good bass extension. Not as bass-heavy as the FXT90 or EPH-100 so if you're looking for enhanced bass go for one of those. Neither has recessed mids.
Mic'd IEMs - there's not a whole lot of them in the upper tiers and you usually end up paying more for the same level of performance - see the Monster Miles Davis Trumpet, for example.
