Philips SHE3580 IEM review--how can something sound so good for $10??? - Page 37

Does the bass deepen with burn in? So far my pair is pretty weak in the bass department, weaker than the mono price 8320, though they are quite a bit quicker and higher resolution

I think the bass only really comes out when you use an equalizer. Out of the box sound doesn't cut it for me. Burn in doesn't change sound much more me... :)

OK. I'm just a little confused, everyone review I've seen talks these up as bass monsters. If anything I feel they could use a touch more bass impact and I'm farfrom a basshead. They do have a nice detailed, textured sound(though slightly on the thin side) for the money. If I can bring the bass slam up a bit and widen the soundstage I'll throw the mono price right in the trash.
Anyone try venting the housing to open the sound up a bit?

Which exact model did you get?

 

Are you getting a good seal?

I think he has problems with the seal. You need to push them deeper L3000.gif

I think I'm getting a good seal, its airtight and isolation is pretty good. I'm tugging the back of my ear on insertion (it feels like I can almost get the whole IEM I'm there if I push hard enough).
I threw the box away so not sure on the model. I got my mother a set too and she kept her packaging so I'll ask her. Oddly she said hers are quite bassy.
Not sure if burn in or better fitment but they seem bassier today. Still no monsters, but quite nice, just about where I like it. Now if only I could get a bigger soundstage.... anyone taken these apart? Is then driver right at the seam? I'm thinking poking some venting in behind it might help with the lack of airiness

If you want bigger sound stage, more sub bass and much better overall sound, look at MH1C. Just keep in mind that the cable is horrible wink.gif

You guys don't get the idea of modding do you?

I just want to see what these things can do. Worst case scenario I'm out five bucks and have an excuse to buy a new set of headphones

Venting the housing has a minimal but positive effect on the soundstage and a similar decrease in isolation. The odd part is the driver almost seems... happier? The frequency response sounds largely the same but there is a more lively authorative attack where needed

There's not really much pics will tell you, I just took a hot needle and ran it into the housing behind the driver

Just did a bass sweep, these things are still pushing at 22hz! That's incredible! And there is driver action a lot lower so it may be my hearing that's cutting off first
