But one is open to taking a little risk, plenty of better options can be found in that range. IMO, XBA-1 offers better value for money.

 

Wow, that's less than half of what it costs here.

I really feel drawn to the Etymotic Hf5 and was thinking of getting them + the custom tips since isolation an comfort are somewaht important to me. But before pulling the trigger I wanted to ask two questions:

 

1. : I am not sure wether they will perform well with the music I am listening to, wich would be mainly metalcore and (post-)hardcore like

     every time I die, Architects, Letlive, Sick of it all and so on...
 

2. : A friend of mine said that the tips will influence the sound slightly, so I wanted to ask wether this was true and if so, in what way would the costum tips influence it?

 

The HF5 will work very well if you like your sound balanced and accurate. (Good) custom tips pretty much give you a perfect seal 100% of the time. I don't think they improve quality over a well-sealed triple-flange (just as an example) but they may very well be more comfortable while providing an equally good seal.

The vPulse is not much of an improvement over the SHE3580 sound-wise so I felt that needed saying tongue.gif. I have a bunch of cheapies to add soon and the SHE3580 might be among them.

The DTX101 is a bass-heavy earphone. You won't have that problem with the Etys or something like a MEElec A161P.

Pretty well overall. I think the GR99 is warmer and has more bass impact while the SHE3580 is a little brighter and clearer. The bass is tighter with the Philips while the quality of the treble is comparable with the GR99 a tiny bit smoother. I would give the GR99 the edge in presentation - it's got more out-of-the-head feel.

i would totally like to see the review of Philips SHE3580,Panasonic RP HJE355 and Sony MDREX-10LP .As these are   the best i have found in the league. Joker w8ing for ur review on these 3 !!!rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

post #8133 of 14166

Joker, I think you should review the Sennheiser CX880s. They've seemed pretty good from what I've read, and should fall under 8's or 7's average, and cost under $100.

what's so good about the ex10lp??

post #8138 of 14166

I think... he looked at the user reviews for those phones and the EX-10LP ranks higher than the others because it has two reviews to the others' 1?  But that doesn't mean anything, I mean... even I haven't posted a review for the SHE3580 to the review widget, so who does? lol

Seems like the $145 'official' price should carry a warranty, and that's still way less than the $280-300 I'm seeing from authorized dealers here in the US.

Just to be clear, I did buy it at the authorized Sony dealer for $145. Even at that time, plenty of online shops (and eBay) have carried XBA-3 for slightly less than the MSRP ($140). Sony does offer one year replacement warranty as long as the buyer has an invoice and a Sony warranty card (as I mentioned here). I was in the process of fixing a price for my XBA-3 sale in the forums, which is when I stumbled upon the $120 listing. I have never bought anything from naaptol nor do I know about the warranty offered, but just mentioned it for the sake of showing the price differential between India and US.

Go for it - can you get an early preview from anywhere?   I am looking forward to seeing how the ie800s stack up against other non-customs... or even the ie80!  tongue_smile.gif

I think you should review the ink'd 2 and 50/50. Wait i know what your thinking: SKULLCANDY!! what are you crazy!? These are actually pretty good at least from a bassheads perspective. Skullcandy has really improved their products recently just look at the aviators, mixmasters, and hesh 2 (tyll reviewed all 3).

post #8144 of 14166

I am intersted in sony MDREX-10lp bcz of all the good reviews about it on this site as well as other sites  as joe mentioned.

i don't know about the ink'd 2 which came recently into the scene but for 50/50, i have them with me for last one year and won't recommend them for bassheads especially.In the intial stages,it had a good bass but with longer hours of use and burn in ,they loss their bass and all i could hear is treble  and after 1 year of use,i am totally unsatisfed with my dubstep experience with them.i would recommend other brand like Senniheiser and JNC over them for a hefty price of 50$.thats one of the reason y iam looking for cheaper in ears.
