What kind of music should be more prominent in the playlist, during the burn-in process, to try  correct the sibilance, maybe more drum and bass?

post #302 of 32858

AFAIK break in is all about loosening the drivers, and bass causes the most driver excursion, so yeah, probably.

anyone here try the borookstone duals?

I have the brookstone clears, the Tts are not bass monsters but they do go low with authority.

Okay maybe the dumbest question ever on this forum but here goes;  I just got the Phillips 3580 based on the recommendations here and mainly because of the emphasis on super small size as I have never been able to wear any iem comfortably.  So I tried the medium tip that came on it but too big.  So I pulled it off but the small tip hole is simply not big enough to fit over the speaker.  I tried the large also but the same problem.  Since the hole not big enough it catches and just pushes the rubber.  So how do you get the tips on?  Thanks.

try it at an angle, not straight down on the nozzle.  I don't really know how to describe it other than work it around a little and it will start to go.

You have to be a bit forceful. The rubber tip will stretch out to fit the tip..I know it seems like the tip is too small for the nozzle but you have to stretch that out. And indeed try to angle it first and it will start to stretch onto the nozzle. You should be able to do it.

I've tried every angle and because of the rubber it just bends so I cannot get into the opening completely.  Does every iem do it this way and cut it so close?  And why?  They couldn't make it easier?  The only thing I can think of is to put something else in like a pen and try to stretch the opening that way.  Thanks.

Dsnuts, a few other questions as I am ready to give up on these Phillips; do you have any "value" finds in earbuds category as I have seen only your iem's & full size?  I was thinking of trying Yuin PK3 as I have seen many recommendations for it in the earbud category.  Have you heard those and if so how would it compare to the various others you have recommended?  Also I thought I read early in this thread that someone asked if you would post all your recs with kind of a ranking of them, did you end up posting that?  Thanks again.

post #312 of 32858

all tips are a bit tight to get on.  the difficulty is understood the first time you get one stuck in your ear.  I didnt find the philips to be anymore difficult than any other IEM I have had.

Turn the tip inside out, stick it on your fingertip and try to push it onto the nozzle.

post #314 of 32858

I finally got in on as I gave it one more try and just forced it without worry about breaking as I was ready to quit anyway and it went on.  Thanks again for everyone's advice.

I find moistening the tip of the iem helps, you obviously want to avoid the wax guard of course.
