post #14101 of 14624

  guys get the she3900 , just got mine , for $9 , these are more like 3680 , not much v-shaped like she3590 , got rid of the excess bass too , and god , super pleased , looks really nice , and got 90 degree plug too , sound is a bit dark for now but i hope it will improve and from now i can say , bass got serious definition .

How is the isolation? Is it better than on 3590? Are the eartips same on both?

People on my thread are reporting oval nozzles on some 3590 as well blink.gif Mine doesn't have it either

Hope this isn't the wrong place to ask this. I follow this thread religiously and use it as a comparison for most of my IEM purchases. I'm looking for a budget IEM for my son in law. I would like decent sound (doesn't have to be spectacular as he's not an audiophile at all). More importantly he needs good isolation (wearing them on the train) and more than anything something that's durable, cables etc. as he's rough on his gear. I'd appreciate any recommendations. TIA

Xiaomi Piston also. Already covered that one. I do have a KC06 and will probably get to review the VSD3(S) as well.

Great!  Looking forward to KC06 review.  Agree with previous poster, Havi B3 Pro 1 and Zero Audio offerings (Tenore, Singolo, Doppio) have been getting a lot of hype.  Lately, also T-Peos Altone 200 and TTPOD T1E

Round nozzles here as well.

How "budget"? If it's $60-ish, that sounds like an Etymotic MC5 to me - the best isolation you'll get for the price, clear (non enhanced-bass) sound, reinforced cables. If you can go up to $100, the Shure SE215 would be a good choice - it has user-replaceable cables, which are a plus for longevity, and a bassier sound signature that's generally better-suited for non-audiophile users.

Almost forgot - fans of bass who write reviews should enter the Tekfusion Twinwoofers review giveaway (http://www.head-fi.org/t/727366/tekfusion-twinwoofers-in-ear-headphones-reviewers-needed) - they're among the bassiest units I've heard in a while :o

Yeah, I posted some pics of the new oval nozzles here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/561951/philips-she3580-iem-review-how-can-something-sound-so-good-for-10/870#post_10728549

 

Looks like Philips are doing that for more models.

Hey joker. Can you recommend any in ear headphones for running? For around 50€.

I'm not IjokerI but I'm an avid runner and have tried quite a few different 'phones over the years. A good running IEM really depends on what you want out of it. Placement? Overear vs. straight down cables. Isolation? Some prefer to be able to hear a little of what's going on around them while others prefer as much isolation as possible (not recommended if you run near traffic). Sound sig. of course is very individual but many like a more "fun" signature for running and more bass since you likely won't hear a lot of detail over the noise of running and breathing heavily. Also microphonics is often a huge deal often for runners. Right at this moment my go to running 'phones are my TDK EB950's (unfortunately discontinued but may be able to find some around) and I'm reviewing a pair of Brainwavz S5's that I really really like for running (when worn the specific way I wear them they isolate really well and have little to no microphonics). Unfortunately they're a little more expensive than you're looking for. Hope I didn't intrude by offering my thoughts.

  go for ckx-9 or 7 , they have a sturdy fit , wont fall even if you run and have a good enough cable too . i have the ckx-9 and they sound good enough , and you can slightly hear your surrounding too . if you wear clothes , put the cable under them . or an arm band pouch will do wonders .

Thanks both for feedback.
