In the showcase: Philips SHE9710

 

 

 

This is the replacement to SHE9700 series. Comes in 4 different colors: Black, Blue, Red and White. I have tested tens of iems the same day, and out of all, price/performance these just rock. They cost about $20 in Japan, currently not available in the US. Multiple ATH, Sony, Denon, TDK, Philips headphones were tested at the same day. The track listened for all of them was Rush - The Wreckers.

The reason for the track: It is a very complicated track, certain guitar tones, drums, synths are in depth and not easy to pick up. Base guitar is extremely prominent, along with the cymbals, which bring out whether the headphone can handle them with the exact tone. One of the parts I pay the most attention to in the song is at 1:00 minute mark (on actual recording, not sure of the youtube video), the guitar notes change for a split second, and that sound is very hard to produce. The Westone 3 does an amazing job in that respect, along with the Shure 1440 that I listen to most of the time. Philips SHE9710 comes very close to these headphones in that respect.

 

Vocals are literally in your face, amazing, I can feel as if Geddy is right in front of me, and talking with me. This for me is one of the most important aspects of headphones that produce the best sound for rock music. The instruments are a little bit on the back, as if you are listening to a concert of Rush. Vocals are so clear and well imaged that when Geddy shouts "Breakers roar" you can actually pick up the echo, truly amazing. The bass guitar is very prominent, it truly is wonderful, you can even hear the distortion on the strings, can not add more to this. Lead guitar as I mentioned before is wonderful as well. The drums kick with punch and brings the depth of the sound even further. 

 

Truly Philips made an amazing product. For the price this is literally unbeatable. As far as the bargain finds, this one beats the Sony MH1c by a couple of steps. They are very comfortable as well, go deep in the ear canal (about the same as Westone 3), and stays there. The issue with the cable would be that it is not a Y split, so you have to put it over back of the neck for the right ear. This would be the only downsides of the Philips SHE9710s. Cable seems to be of very high quality. The headphones comes with 3 eartips of S,M,L sizes, and a carrying case.

The SHE9700 are great... these look promising.

Of course, there is another new kid in town, the Geek Wave (won't be available until late in the year, like the Pono, and doesn't seem to be techincally a DAP, rather, an add on to your cell phone to turn it in to a hi-rez, extended play/battery life DAP. Does sound appealing, though...and something about this Geek Squad just pulls me in...

Yes...quite. I might be enticed to buy one of these if they come out, considering they're right at the price range of the Pistons. I wonder if they sound similar to the 3580s...?

They sound better than the 3580s. The soundstage is livelier than the 3580s, more neutral, the mids are quite amazing, bass performs similar, treble is clearer in 9710. Quality wise cable of 9710 gives the feeling of more durable, only issue may be the j cord.

I would pretty much agree with the below

The dual dynamics are beating the micro-CNT .... Simply, the IM70 has a fuller, taller, and more detailed sound than the outstanding CKN70. All of these AT earphones are wonderful, and as Dsnuts, waynes world, sf, and DannyBai can all attest, I've never been a AT fanboy. I loved the JVC house sound more than the AT house sound. But that changed with the CKS1000, and then the CKN50, CKN70, and now the IM70. Happy listening.

OK, a day with no posts, you guys know how that makes me anxious!!!! Have to post Dogwalk Discoveries (didn't get to it last week)
Posted some black gospel, the other strong gospel strain that had some effect on pop music is country gospel, here are the Haden Sisters with a great example...(the studio version of this sounds fabulous over headphones)


Now, one of the Haden sisters, Petra, covering a Who classic...



And lastly, a postbop take on the Hymn, Marty Erlich Quartet (stick with this one, it builds up over the course of the piece)

Speak of the devil.

 

Now it's audio technica's turn, YAY!!! :D

 

All we need to include are the ckr9s and we're set to go in this audio technica hype train.

Well, well, well, looks like we have a new hype train leaving the station. I've seen these on sale on TB for a while, but the IM0x series is still really expensive. The IMx0 seems to be the cheaper option, and one of them looks a lot like an IEM version of the M50 (in red).

 

I wanna grab a ticket, but maybe later.
