So the SHE3580 has gained a little reputation but I see nobody is willing to give parametric EQ even a little try... I posted a lengthy explanation in Joker‘s IEM review thread and no one gave it a second glance... I am sad frown.gif

So I thought if nobody wants to try it why don't I try it for them. I will post some music tracks processed with my EQ settings. If they work for your ears anywhere near as well as they do for mine you just might cry tears of joy on hearing the sound coming from these $10 phones, it's just that good.

Does anyone have any favourite songs they'd like to hear with my processing? Post a link here and I‘d look for them.

Main issue for me is that I use the SHE3580 portable with a non-Rockboxable iPod. I can't get a powerful equalizer like that for that. I might run them through my home set up a bit later to try it out, though.

Yeah I'm up for some of that action.

 

I listened to this last night on both the FXT90 and the SHE3580 and the difference (as expected) was just incredible.... 3580 just sounded thin, small, muffled and cheap.

 

Lets' see what your magic can do :)

And maybe this?

Obviously not youtube quality, that's just to show what the tracks are.

Managed to pickup Philips SHE3582 (light blue) in the UK for £5.

 

I only have modded JVC Marshmallow FX33 and Soundmagic E10 IEM's to compare with.

To me they sound better than the Marshmallows, and on a par with the Soundmagic.

 

I also have full size Sennhesier HD202 which sound very good, I don't feel like I'm missing anything when I listen to the Philips.

 

I am very impressed, shame the build quality is not the same as the JVC (thick cable, gold plug etc).

Really? That's a shame because I just ordered a pair of SM E10's.  (only £20 so not too bad)

Well I'll see when they get here I guess.

 

I thought the SM E10's would be a good, cheap back-up pair to my main set.

 

Hmmm

I am no expert but to me they both sound as good as each other.

 

The E10 could have a better cable in my opinion (thicker or braided), but the build quality is a lot better than the Philips.

 

The E10 are very good you won't be dissappointed, I can't justify spending more than £25 on earphones.

Well those who just see the 3850 as average... would they still rate them better the other ~$10 phones like m6/m9... that would be being un-equalized. This is just to know if its worth recommending (before hearing them myself).

Thanks

Oh absolutely. For the bux these cans will absolutely surprise you. I have had my kicker HP541 cans for a very long time and they are one of the best cans for electronica. Closed, good isolation, comes with 2 changeable cords. You can't beat that price. Give that a go. I am willing to bet you they will surprise you how good they will sound for the bux paid. Perfect for your needs and they sound awesome.

I like em more than my CC51s. I like these over my newly acquired XePort 3010 which is a bit too bass light for my taste. Go for it. These sound great and are cheap enough to try out.

I have M6 and the she3580 sounds much better. In-fact, since I bought my CK-700, I have hardly touched the M6. It's just somewhere gathering dust. The fit on the Philips is new to me. I always forget I have them on. It complements my CK-700 very well.

post #478 of 32862

yup i have to agree the phillips 3580 easily sounds better than meelectronics m6p even though i like them... th phillips are so much fun to listen to, the panning and layers are amazing.... as for isurus doing a good burn softens up the sound for top to bottom, bass is nicer, still goes  deep, the highs are not harsh anymore...

With this tier of 'phone, I think most people are just looking for something that's plug and play across a myriad of devices (phone, tablet, portable gaming, laptop, MP3, etc...) where EQ is either not possible or becomes too much of a hassle.  I'm assuming with EQ, you're attempting to tame the peaks/valleys and flatten the frequency response?  I know this is generally the goal with open air solutions, but headphones are kind of throwing me for a loop.  It seems a lot of the "well regarded" and popular units around here seem to sport pretty horrible freq response graphs, while some that are almost ruler flat straight out of the box get very little press and play.  There must be something I'm missing, because this seems akin to me going to a videophile community and expecting to hear how great this TV's over saturated, dynamic driven, Vivid mode is.
