This is exactly the opposite of how I'm hearing them.confused.gif

EDIT: No, I'm lying. Guitars sound better on this earphones than on Monoprice.

Burn out didn't help. I tried many tips : comply, double flange, triple flange, foam tips, silicon. They sound the same. The sound is really bad. I can't believe someone think that these earphones sound as 200$ :))) If they are no match for Monoprice why bother telling how they sound against JVC. Hope that phillips atleast won't disappoint me. That's just my opinio, maybe my ears are just too sensitive, I don't know.

Wow...I don't know what to tell you. I'm hearing something completely different. They sound good to me, even compared to my GR07

I can see that. I am very good fit-wise but I am surprised we haven't heard that one till now. A possible cure is longer tips like bi-flanges. The HD big - bi's should be in every Head-fier's tip kit. They sound very good on the Tt but make them stick out more in my ears.

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone tempted to try the SHE8000/28? I had them in my cart on Amazon for $12 shipped or around that. Went with the 3580 though since their form factor would make them better for exercise and such.

Different ears maybe.

May I ask what player you're using it with? Maybe you have it on an eq setting that you're using with another phone...

post #412 of 32862

No, I'm not using EQ. Don't try to blame player or EQ. I know when something sounds great it sounds great. I used earphones with Motorola atrix, sansa clip RB and with my PC. They sound the same on every device.

Ok.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Very strange. The definition and clarity on the Isurus is definitely above the Mp8320.. The under water sound you are hearing. I am wondering if you have an issue I have with some plugs. I don't have this issue with my MP3 player but with my PC. When I plug it in all the way I don't get full sound I get a garbled mess. It very much sounds like I am listening to music in water. Like how you describe. When I pull the plug about 1/4th way out it becomes very clear..Now if you don't like brighter sound signatures I can see how you wouldn't like the isurus.

 

Believe me if these were as bad as you are describing it. I wouldn't consider even mentioning them..I know this particular sound signature might not appeal to everyone but by no means is it that bad. In fact once you get used to the sound signature and then go to something like a Mp 8320 you can hear the lesser definition and clarity easily..Very strange. I am wondering if there is a variation on these maybe a QC issue. Just for you guys and for my own curiosity I have 3 Philips earphones on order.

31mNpM8BG-L._SL500_AA300_.jpgPhilips SHE9750         Cost on all 3. $60. Not bad. Will report back with findings once I get them.

I ordered mine's from amazon UK. Maybe that is the difference? But somehow I don't think so :)

post #416 of 32862

Given the quality of the 3580's, I can't wait to hear how some of Philips other models stack up.  I'm also going to have to return the TT's, the sound sig is just not for me.  Any gain in clarity or detail is nullified by the sibilance as far as my ears are concerned.  For the price I paid ($32) plus a grab bag of tips (~$10 shipped) that may or may not improve them, there's no potential on display that makes them seem worth it over the 3580's or 8320's.

Ya believe me if they sound as bad as you describe. I would think one or maybe all of the 3 guys that tested these would tell me so. Granted I made the thread before all the guys got their isurus but I was very confident that these would be what I am hearing. Now again sound signature wise there are people that don't like the AT sound signature and legions that do. I do apologize to guys that end up not liking these through this thread..I know not every discovery is going to be 100% accepted or liked by everyone because we all have different taste in sound so in doing a thread I try n get one that has a solid sound foundation to them for the cost.. You will like the Philips SHE3580 as there is nothing the stands out on them which makes for a broader appeal. Admittedly the isururs highs can be on the bright side but nothing a bit of tip switching can't fix..See if you can return them and get your money back and get yourself a Philips SHE3580 instead.

post #418 of 32862

What's weird to me isn't that it's a sound-sig preference thing...but that some people are hearing these COMPLETELY different than the rest of us. I would think there's more to that than just "different ears." I dunno.

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯      (lol sorry, I had to steal that)

Ya it is strange to me too. The guys that have these now also own the Mp8320. Do we all not agree these are superior to them? The bass is better and more defined and extends greater. The clarity is better the mids are more defined. Once you listen to tunes on the isurus and then go back to the Mp8320 you can pick out exactly what is a bit lacking on them.

 

I am thinking it is more of a sound signature thing. So this hobby shows just how different we hear the sounds.

I'm thinking those that are posting their displeasure, aside from the sibilance, aren't okay with the sound signature of the Tt's. I don't have any probs aside from the sibilance issue, which should die down after further burning/use. I'm patient. These should complement the more bass centric Monster Turbines I have. IMO, these hit above their weight at $25/35.
