Hi Ds, I have the 8320 which my ears barely fills up. Is the housing of the Philips bigger or smaller than the 8320.

You gotta take these into consideration..Philips ain't kidding around with these at all.

 

These are the real deal. I think most manufactures try to have this type of sound but fall short in one way or another. Not these. These are certainly special in that they hit all that is required for a nice high end sound. Sound from in ears simply don't get much better.. These sound more like full sized headphones more than in ears to me and that says something about the mastery of tuning Philips did with these..

 

I do believe this is their first large dynamic..I bet you they experimented with different form factors and drivers to get this sound..The research and dedication to sound shows up in the end product..I have heard much more expensive product that don't touch these in sound ability.. Considering Philips has made so many in ears and hit some real nice gems in the SHE3580/90 and the SHE9700 that was cheap.. They really stepped it up with these and charged accordingly but these do scale in value from the cheapo SHE3580. Masterful is what I can say about them just masterful.

 

I wish Joe Bloggs was around. I have no idea where that guy is but he needs to hear these being the resident Philips fan..These might make him cry with joy. Lol.

 

Oh wait I take that back they did have a larger dynamic one of these the SHE6000

These are supposed to have a surround sound enhancement trough design like this pic here.

As gimmicky as it is...I can swear some of this tech is on the S2. Surround is a good word for how music envelops you on the S2..Fantastic earphones at any cost.


 

Yo Deez!  Glad to see you still here and stirring things up ksc75smile.gif Did you sort out the problems with your business?

 

These days I've sorta retreated to a skype group with people from the anime lounge

http://www.head-fi.org/t/586040/official-asian-anime-manga-and-music-lounge

 

I've actually heard the S2 at a local headphone expo.  To my ears, in terms of stock, unaltered sound, they did more right than, say, the UE900.  I don't like how it's bulky and open-back though when they've proved that they could make a great sounding tiny, ergonomic IEM for peanuts.  But I guess bulky and unwieldy is in vogue these days--I could barely fit the UE900 and the K3003 in my ear and my guess is the same would apply to the SE846.  If Philips put the same amount of research dough into a great phone in the SHE3580 form factor, people would probably dismiss it as not looking serious enough... argh.

 

What I'm missing from the SHEs is isolation.  I wish to find something that could isolate almost as much as Etymotics, while not giving me the stuffed-ear sound of the same.  Pretty tough though as I found that the open sound of the SHEs depended in part on the front vent between the driver and the ear, which prevents an airtight seal between the IEM and the ear, which incidentally also prevents driver flex.  I did try sealing that vent and isolation didn't go up significantly though, so OTOH it may be possible to increase isolation somehow with a redesign without closing the vent? confused.gif

Smaller. They will fit better than the MP8320.

No doubt. Don't be such a stranger Joe. You know you have free reign here.

 

You know the S2 is surprising on how good it isolates. Well with comply tips it does. Anyway I am back in school now. I have a mid term I gotta go take.. Medical variety. I study eat study some more eat study some more sleep and start all over again.  I wish I could listen to music while I study but that don't work. I get too much into my music and forget what I was looking at. Not good. My brain don't function that way..

Well, I wouldn't say the treble is "unbearably" hot and spitty, but it's more treble than I like. I find the mids recessed, and if I raise the volume to hear vocals and mids better, the treble gets too strong for my taste.

 

Bass is fast and tight, there's a good amount of it.

 

And yeah, I do get a good seal with the Active Complys. The S2 fits wonderfully.

 

It's an entertaining IEM, but as I said in the Fidelio S1 and S2 thread, I still prefer the Senn IE8.

I read that. I sense that you prefer a warmer fuller sound. The S2s being a more neutral flavor they will have less coloration..You prefer bigger bass as well which adds to male vocals and fullness of what you hear...The CKS1000 sounds like your type of phone.

 

I like all sorts of flavors. I don't discriminate.. It has to be good though.

I did not manage to get a good fit with the included tips either. Sony hybrids did the trick for me.

 

The treble on my S2 is nowhere near harsh so I also suggest playing around with different tips. I also get the best feeling wearing them over ear but they work fine straight down as well.

That will be great. Looking forward to it.

A solution might be to get some cheap and less engaging IEMs lol tongue.gif

You have to admit though, there are people here with that mentality. Joker's been praising these for a good while now, then suddenly the Nutman hypes them and it's OMG I have to get them! No offence to DS of course, but I've gone along with his hype a couple of times and been disappointed.

post #11021 of 32903

What's the Fidelio s2's bass quantity like in comparison to the ATH CKN70's? More or less, or around the same?

Yeah, same happened with me a couple of times too.

 

One time was the Brainwavz R1 hype, really didin't impress me at all.

post #11024 of 32903
Dsnuts or anyone that has compared the ath cks77x or carbo basso. Which would you recommend?

Im debating between the two. Im a basshead. I admit it.
post #11025 of 32903

Listening to the new Sigur Ros album on my AD900x. Ugh! So beautiful! ;_; Such a beautiful, natural tone these headphones have - plus DAT SOUNDSTAGE + IMAGING. Just crazy good.

Hoping my new Fidelio S2's will blow me away in a similar fashion ;)
