Thanks for the reply joker so I guess both of them will score above 7 in your scale? Also would like to know about their build quality, isolation and microphonics?

post #7189 of 15260

joker,

 

 

Panasonic RP-HJE120 vs Philips SHE3580. in short, what are the sound signature difference , and which better? same price

 

AM-90, A151 and GR06. all got the same 4/5 isolation, but which one can isolate more?

 

thanks!

I have never heard the M4

 

 

 

I usually just recommend the MEElec M11+ fit kit (in clear) for those just starting out. Has various sizes/shapes of single- and bi-flange tips (10 pairs total). All silicone so no point in comparing to Comply or Monster Supertips but it's good to have around. 

 

 

The A161P should sound like the Fischer SBA-03 I reviewed, in which case the S4 won't stand a chance in overall accuracy.

 

 

 

Glad you like them! Certainly a pleasant all-rounder for not very much money. 


What are your thoughts on the Sony hybrid tip kit?

Thanks!!

Sounds reasonable. I actually quite like the signature of the GR99 with its sub-bass (rather than mid-bass) emphasis but it's not as impressive as the other VSonics when it comes to other things.

Really difficult to split the last three. Personally I prefer the B2s but the other two are very good in their own right.

This would be the winner, then.

Cable noise is average to slightly above average (3.5-4). So is isolation. Build quality is very good on both. I prefer the R02 because of angled plug, thicker cable, and inclusion of cable cinch but really not much of a difference otherwise.

The HJE120 sounds like a $10 IEM to me. Its sound is not as v-shaped as that of the SHE3580 but otherwise it doesn't really have anything going for it at the moment.

 

Isolation will depend on the tips. The AM-90 with the triples isolates very well but is not comfortable for me.

Very good to have around and fits a variety of nozzle sizes but chances are you'll only find one size you can use in the kit.

Is that a good place to start or is there an advantage of the Meelec? I can get the Sonys for about 1/2 the price of the Meelec, and I assume both are for more or less determining the appropriate size,etc?

joker, if EX1000 has a V shaped sound signature and UM3X is mid centric, what is W4?

With the MEE pack you'll probably find 3, maybe 4 sets that fit but at half the price you might as well try the Hybrids first. I've always paid around the same for both (~$9 for the hybrids, $10 for the MEE pack)

W4 is balanced, maybe slightly mid-centric IMO.

The hybrids are ~$8, shipped the MEE pack is ~$14 shipped.

Which would you choose between EX1000 and W4?

Thank you.

post #7198 of 15260

the hybrid tips are good but i dont see much isolation compared to the ordinary sony tips , its good , but has some inside out trouble . they fit relly nice on klipsch earphones .
 

post #7199 of 15260

Thanks ljokerl for the great review!! It's explicit, and it helps me know each product clearly and efficiently.
