Hi all, I'm considering picking up a cheap pair of SHE3680's.
Does anyone know if I can use the bi-flange tips from my Meelectronics M9's on them? Regular tips never fit in my ears.
Hi guys,I have a friend living in the UK and in a few weeks he's going to be back to his native town for holiday,.Here in Brazil any pair of the "She" series from Philips is around 30/40 US bucks.Now, i am willing to make a gift to my sister ,and i was wondering to buy a Clip+ 2g (which is about 60/70 Bucks here ,quite expensive too).
Now,to make it short i found two different a pair of Philips,the SHE 3580 which are the protagonist here,and a pair classified as SHE3570BK:.
I know they made practically the same drivers with just different colours,and here on Head-Fi a few threads already have people confirming the sound does not change between them,but the second IEM i mention here cost 8 £,which is 3 £ cheaper,So i would like to ask to you to confirm me they are the same model but just with different tips colours.Sorry about this long post question with an almost useless question!
Quite happy that with a mere 35 £ i can get a decent portable rig for my sister,i may end up in buying the same rig for me.Actually i own a Clip Zip 8g more 2,8,and 16g Micro SD card paired with a HF5.
Thanks already folks.
Joe Bloggs ,i hope i can get your same results with this cheap IEM equalized ,so i can let my HF5 take a little rest,they are working hard!!haha
I just hear that someone wrote Philips and was told that the 3570 and 3580 are the same. If you like the HF5 you can obtain a similar level of detail with the SHE35xx with the posted parametric EQ tuned to your own ears (ie use Sinegen to find the resonant frequencies of the IEMs coupled to your ears and change the center frequencies of the high frequency dips on my EQ to match your own peaks) except with the potential for much more bass impact (the bass rolloff in the EQ 'nerfs' the bass response of the phones but even with this EQ it has more bass than etys; with the bass rolloff removed the phones rock HARD although impact would not be the best because true bass "impact" is actually performed by a balanced rendition of bass (which would contribute to the "wub wub wub") all the way up to the treble (which provides the "snap" of the impact) and everything in between.
Thank you Joe,that is what i wanted to hear to be confirmed.I normally always look for budget stuff as at the moment i can't afford any hi-end product,and in this case i am thinking in making a gift for my sister (she deserves a little more than a pair of SHE3570 and a Clip+,she is really pushing hard between work and university),and i will take the opportunity to buy a pair for myself for backup IEM's,with more bass impact ,better.
I will try my best to in finding the best equalized solution as i am exactly not much a user of equalization.I may end up learning a little more ,because right now equalization done by myself is just like a catastrophic action..Consequently i am eagerly intrigued to see how my ety's will respond to this modification (beside changing the filters port to change basically the sound signature which is a modification i found on a specific thread done by Astro Turf).I did already tried to improve my HF5 bass impact ,but i always lose a lot of clarity ,much more of what i would expect to lose.
Thanks, I found a pair at Target on the way home, the 3590 to be exact. From what I've read it's the same driver/enclosure as the 3580.
Wow, these aren't bad at all, maybe as good as my Image S4s?? Definitely heavy on the bass, but doesn't seem to smother the mids and highs in rock music like some of the bassier IEMs do. I'll definitely be trying these out with some jazz and electronic stuff in the coming days.
Thanks for the reply. Is the faulty left and right positioning of wires are isolated cases only? I have one IEM from focal price with the same problem.
have you tried the black one of CK700? I saw 2 colors available. I wonder if there's a difference between two of them considering that they differ slightly on price. Thank you you help me alot on choosing an alternative IEM
