Equalisation should be a scalpel, not a machete. 

 

Resonance is the enemy, people. 

 

For mobile use or what?  If sourcing from the computer software EQ should be just as good as any outboard box you can buy.

 

I take it you found PiccoloNamek's and my EQ guide helpful? wink.gif

Well, the wife took over my SHE's today.  I don't have any hopes of getting them back.  Have to get another pair I guess. smily_headphones1.gif

hope you guys have some suggestions.

 

I just wanted to say that I have similar tastes as you.  I also love my k701s but cannot find an IEM with similar sound.  The SHE3580 even without EQ sounds better to me than a $350 retail IEM that I recently tried.  If you find something a little better than the SHE but with similar sound in the treble, please let me know.

i am newbie, just 2 silly questions.

 

anybody has experience with Philips SHE3680 ?

it just looks like SHE3580/3590, but with hybrids silicon.

btw, does anyone actually compare SHE3580 with 3590?

are they really have the similar sound?

 

any input and comment is appreciate beerchug.gif

sofastreamer have you heard the RE0's.  They have great trebble thats non-fatiquing.  They're just too lean sounding to me.  I got to have the bass right.  Anyway, you've heard a lot more IEMs than i have, so thats just a thought. 

post #281 of 884

I had the RE0 - I prefer the Phillips. Game over.

post #282 of 884

i thought about re0 and read a lot and came to the conclusion that i would like re zero or re262 better. but at least they seem to have not enough sub bass rumble for my liking. i will wait for the gr07 first. if it is not to my joy, i will look further. next on my list will be the ckm500.

post #283 of 884

Had the re262 also - the cable twisted till I could no longer hear anything from the driver on one side. Like the RE0, I had to bury them. RIP, old friend.

Just ordered 2 pairs of SHE3590's from amazon. Hopefully they're as good as you all say they are. cool.gif

post #285 of 884
