Does anyone know a way of removing kinks and straightening the cables out?

Thanks,

Dave.

Could it be the 3580, the 3570 and the 3575 (mine) are all the same but the 3575's have a mic?

Just bought myself Philips SHE 3850 (USD 11) and A/B it with My Fischer Audio DBA02 MKII (USD 200)

 

overall, I'm impressed by this earphone performance, 

 

SQ wise;

 

DBA 02 win for resolution for quite a margin

 

DBA 02 win on high and mids, before amping with my D4 Mamba, SHE3850 sounds a bit duller, after amping... I cant stop myself from smiling, bigsmile_face.gif.. this baby catches up quite near with DBA02... d**n!!!.. I wish I saw this thread earlier!!! mad.gif

 

DBA 02 win on bass speed and texture

 

DBA 02 win on attack and speed, 3850 decay a little bit longer

 

3850 sounds slightly more musical and warmer, at least to me

 

3850 win on bass extension, 3850 extend deep to lower region. When I listen to Yiruma's Kiss The Rain, I obviously can hear the piano key sound, which settle at very low bass region. I can't hear those with DBA02 MKII.. 

 

fit is good on me, medium tips just give me good isolation and comfort. I can't even notice it in my ear after a while.

 

but anyway, this is a ~USD 10 (RM 37 in my country) earphone, what can u say?

definitely if i rate for value, perhaps I can rate 11/10..

 

p/s.. I think apart from resolution, speed and decay.. it sounded like Sony XBA4 (USD~350)... (dont take too serious on this ok!!) bigsmile_face.gif

Well it's not a fair comparison because the DBA-02MKII lacks bass

ZO2 + SHE-3580 + Shure Olives = bass monster with a ridiculous amp/headphone cost ratio.  There's a night club in my head with this combo...

My very first non-stock earphones is the Philips SHE3570. When I used this for the first time, I was disappointed, because the bass is very lacking for me. It's because my playlist at that time was full of RHCP songs, and I really like hearing Flea's funky basslines, though I like the mids and highs. After some EQing using the Equalizer app in android market(I use android smartphone as DAP), I got some decent bass for my liking, and it finally sounded ok for me, but I still think these are not enough for my tastes. I think it's either I got a defective pair, or I'm just a basshead.

 

Then after six months of use( travelling, sleeping, in school, at home, gym) only the left side is left working.

I loved these with my Zo2 but they broke in like a month and I was pretty disapointed, but for the cost Ill probably buy them again, are there any other good tips to use with the 3580

How does the Philips SHE3580 compare to the JVC HAFX40 in terms of comfort while lying against a pillow?

post #134 of 955
Just bought it today.. So far so good
How many hours burnin to reveal all potential?

I got my hands on these finally. They must be the tiniest IEMs I've seen. And they sound pretty good too. Easily on par with the 8320, which means they're on par with sets <$100.
