So the real bang per buck imo is in the iems and not full sized cans.


Going by the one's I've heard, I agree. Well, maybe with the exception of the Koss Porta Pro, but only if you drill holes into them. rolleyes.gif

 

That said, I've been doing a bit of A/B listening with the SHE3580, and the Yamaha EPH-100 are where they reach their ceiling. The latter have a similar sound signature, but are simply more refined in every aspect. Not bad for a $10 phone, since the Yamahas cost $150.

sir i am looking for an (ultra) cheap substitute earbuds as my ATH-SJ55 is under warranty (defective left channel)

 

then i saw this thread talking about the SHE3580 about being good-sounding for the price

and then i bought a pair at a shopping mall here in the Philippines but overlooked at the model, it's SHE3570 (not 3580), my fault!

 

are these two identical in sound quality? or is it really a wrong move?

immediate response will be appreciated, thanks!

i listen to my phone on my iphone 4g any good eq apps?

evol1961:  the SHE3580 seems to be a very minor update of the SHE3570.  The only change I see is the colour of the eartips.  I think the sound should be the same.

 

david8613: there's the included equalizer, which should work well as long as you remember to lower the preamp setting after boosting frequencies to prevent clipping.  Then I hear there's the Rockbox system-level mod which I hear includes a very good equalizer.

Is that just me, but after some burn in under-water effect has decreased. Interesting.

Sibilance & harshness didn't disappear.

Only you mentioned an underwater effect on the Isurus in the first place so it's definitely just you tongue.gif

I'm just describing what I hear. If I don't like sound, why shouldn't I express my opinion?

If you tried smaller-bore tips and eq is turned off, but you still despise it, you can just return it. No shame there

My 3580's arrived this morning and have been listening for a while... I mean they're not bad and for £8 I'm not too fussed that I bought them.

But when you go from good earphones to these, the difference is pretty noticeable, soundstage is small, not very detailed and nothing stands out... everything is just average, or below average.... bass is OK... mids OK and Highs OK.

 

Meh..

 

I will obviously burn them in for a considerable time and also try out several more tips... but so far, they sound like good cheap earphones, but cheap earphones all the same.

 

People who have said they sound/rival $100 - $200 earphones.... I'm not to sure what you're hearing or what earphones you're comparing too... but they don't sound like that to me.

 

 

Like I said, plenty of time to burn and different tips is my next move.

 

 

Just thought I'd post some initial impressions.

Guys what about the SHE8000, they're on half price in tesco's for £13 ultil the 24th.

 

I was very tempted i'll admit, they do look rather nice.

Everything's alright, it is just that I am disappointed in isurus, but oh well, they didn't cost that much. :)

I am still working on burning in the Isurus (about 40 hours now) and have tried numerous tips...and I have to agree: the sibilance and harshness are still there.

At this point, I can't see me ever choosing to listen to these over any of the IEMs I currently own, so unfortunately no bargain for me here.  Looks like I will be returning them frown.gif

 

By the way:  what does the button on the microphone section actually do?  Doesn't seem to do anything when I click/double-click it.

@blupblup they do sound like your normal sounding earphones but where they start to shine is when you start spending some time with them. If you just sample how they sound they are not gonna stand out much. Listen to them for several hours on a variety of tunes and you will understand why we are excited about them. I think for both of these iems our brains have to adjust to the sounds and that is when sparks may fly. But if that point never happens than these are not gonna impress anyone.

 

For the guys that don't like the sounds of the isurus. I am listening to them now. It is amazing how you guys find them that harsh. . In any case I would return them and try out the SHE3580. They might be to your guys liking much more so.

 

As of writing my MP8320 was indeed my favorite Trance iems. The Isurus has taken over that spot.
