LOL biggrin.gif  Just to be clear (in case Joker sees this) the 3580's in no way hold a candle to the CK10 in SQ and build, but for what I am using them at the moment, the 3580s are a much better fit. The CK10 has decent weight and impact down to ~20Hz, but then drops pretty quickly from there (maybe even a tad bit before 20Hz); the 3580s on the other hand, have very strong output down to ~15HZ - I can't hear the notes, obviously, but my head actually reverberates and I at least feel it in my head. There is a slight hint of bloat in the low-mids, but overall, the bass is fairly accurate and tight all the way down to the deep end. As a monitor for bass, it really is awesome, not just for what I paid.

I don't know, can you tell me more about the EQ features on the j3 or colorfly?  Any parametric equalizer?  How many bands?  Without at least a 5-band parametric EQ the best you can do is make a general A-shaped EQ like I did with Poweramp in the OP of this thread.

 

Actually what I do now is batch process the music with foobar2000 and Electri-Q to mp3s with the desired parametric EQ burnt in, then I can play them on any portable player without any EQ on the player.

I think he is saying he uses them as monitors while he plays bass :)

Just to clarify things for me, these are that great as you guys are saying just after EQ, right? rolleyes.gif

     not doing any thing to my color fly , cuz its an import it has parametric equalizer and i am more then happy with that , once broke its gone . and my j3 has 5band eq ( graphic eq but has parametric abilities , i can sign width , band freq , and amplitude ) , with 12 units + or - , every band has 4 variable values , 1st band has 80 , 105 , 135 175 , the 2nd one has 220 , 300 , 385 , 500 , 3rh one has 650hz , 780 1.1k 1.4k , 4th one has 1.8 , 2.4 , 3.0 and 4.1 , last one has 6.9 , 9.0 , 11.7 , and 13k . and this limits it , it goes over 13k in frequency but has no control over it .

    and the on device eq are good . and did you said you will burn the music to your desired eq setting to match a earphone ( correct me if wrong )? that will not work cuz i have 55 earphones , and each is different to other . and some 4500 songs so cant tune them all for each . if you can tune the earphone or the player then it will be nice ( 1 eq for each earphone ) . as rockbox , used to give custom rom and awesome eq .

 

    i like electri-q , it did nice with my hd201 , before this i had never felt my cans shaking , as i bumped up the lower bands . but sadly i use pc for gaming , and games dont take response from a eq unless its the native driver eq in the realtek . or your sound card .

Yes only great after EQ, but a hell of a value regardless mainly for the nice bass.

Is the 1st and last filters low shelf and high shelf?

12 units are they dB?

 

Maybe try this

1st band 175Hz -6 wide

2nd band 300Hz -4 wide

4th band 3kHz -6 narrow

5th band 6.9kHz -6 wide

 

?

Hi Bob,  i got both, 3580 and 8320 ( two months),   and after 50+ hours of burning on both i am liking the 3580over the 8320.  At firs i was hearing more mid detals con the 8320, now mids are much better on the 3580.   better sound overall,  better subbass,  also its easier to use than the 8320, the fit for me is perfect with the medium tips, they are ver little so its very easy to use.

 

i am hearing Franz Ferdinand My Dear Disco asi i write, and the bass is simply amazing!   . :)   $15.00    :)  :)

post #240 of 955

i am no expert, but the 3580 sounds muuch beter than the 8320,   if joker gave the 8320 a 7.2 points y wont be suprised that he gives the 3580 7.5 points tongue_smile.gif

 

Still waiting for Jokers review!
