Now I'm burning mine with a special track which found in russian audiophile forum. Tara Labs Cascade noise burn-in disc. I'll tell if there will be any difference.

How do IEMs compare to full-sized cans like Denon D2k?

post #423 of 32862

Well im still waiting for my isurus, and have a wide array of tips.

 

Be interesting how they stack up, seem to be a lot of threads about folk not being happy with their iems at all lately.

 

Im quite patient, so will have to load up one of my clips with as much music as i can for the lengthy burn in.

 

I will be giving them a trial run soon as i get the things of course.

Listening now with my Rockboxed Clip+ sans EQ so that I can be on equal ground with Nipit and I'm still not hearing them the way he describes them.

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

lol. Good point

IMO, these hit above their weight at $25/35.


I concur. My pair has about 40hrs of burn in, and the sibilance has improved a fair bit. As Dsnuts said, the isurus is superior to the 8320. Just be patient and let the drivers (and your brain) adjust.

For me it is more of a convenience thing, I like listening to my music while I am commuting to and from work and while I would love to have my D2000 on my head while I cruise down the street. I think the police might have a different take on that. Also while working out.. There is a guy at my gym that uses his Bose sound isolating headphones. I have no idea how anyone can workout with full sized or even supraaural cans in their head. I don't know about you guys but I actually sweat and the last thing I would want on my headphone is sweat.

 

My cheapo koss buds do the job just fine plus the only thing I listen to is espn while working out anyway and not too many will be doing any type of serious listening while working out so that is the best uses for my iems..Full sized phones are more suited for critical listening imo. It is astonishing to me how close if not better iems can get to full sized cans in sound though.

 

I will do one better and clearly say it. .For the cash  iems are actually a better value in SQ.  For example these Philips SHE3580s. These cost $10 or less and yet I have nothing in a full sized headphone that can touch their acoustics at that price. Heck they beat out many of the Budget fi mid $50- $100 in SQ easily. So the real bang per buck imo is in the iems and not full sized cans.

the phillips are stilll blowing me away, i saw a set in target looked similar to the she 3580 but with a looking build, very colorful too.... they were called phillip/oneil, anyone see/use them?

Those look like newly painted SHE9550s the ones I just sold.. I bet they sound the same too. The only difference is it looks like they are using mesh for cord instead of rubberized. Mistake as many a review say microphonics just ruin any type of good sound you get from it. It isn't just one or two review either it is all of them. They all say the microphonics just kills these things. 31jNXAL2FAL._AA300_.jpg.You can try one out if your curious but the housing design looks exactly like the SHE9550 which is a bassier Philips.  That would be a downgrade in sound compared to the SHE3580. Though I can't confirm this as I haven't heard the Oneil ones. 31RsC6rrzUL._AA300_.jpgThese look nicer but I bet the sound is the same. The sound on the SHE9550 wasn't terrible but the SHE3580 is superior in every way to these. The bass is big and bloaty with mediocre mids and highs. I found myself grabbing the SHE3580 over the SHE9550 every time. I would wait a bit as I have 3 Philips on order. I will let you guys know how the other ones sound compared to the SHE3580 which is definitely Philips best sounding earphone for now.

are ya'll using that splitter thing that came with the isurus? It seems ya'll have the same problem I have with all headsets when using it with my phone. That drowned out underwater sound is cause by the mic. Either use the splitter or you have to press the button.

It would be kinda hilarious if this is the problem everyone is having.

That's right use the splitter on the Isurus to get a conventional 3-segment plug which should be more reliably compatible with all audio devices.

The 3580s are growing on me, replacing my EP630s as something I can just toss around. Let's just hope the cable will hold up!

 

P.S. this sounds amazing out of them:

Let‘s just put it this way: I'm the guy that broke my etys 4 times and yet these SHE3580 have survived nonstop duty in my coat pockets, pants pockets and bag for nearly a full year. The packaging these came in is probably the worst treatment they'll ever receive, if they can survive that they can survive anything tongue.gif Those who remember unboxing these will know what I mean.

No, splitter didn't help with the sound.

post #435 of 32862
Frankly at this point I think your best chance with the Isurus would be EQ. Be best to do PiccoloNamek‘s tutorial (if you do, pm me, I have some additional tips to offer) to find the exact resonant peaks causing the sibilance and EQ those out, but even fiddling with a 10band eq would be a good start. Although I‘m the one who got the ball rolling on the Philips I don't listen to them without EQ myself. Heck, I don't listen to anything without eq, be it $20 or $200 phones. They all need help to get accurate sound but the real value in some cheap phones IMHO is they respond almost as well to EQ as phones 10 times their price.
