The Isurus are still showing some chunk of sibilance and I have been burning them for about 30 hours or so already. When does it go away or subside :)

It never really does. Your best bet is tips. WAIT, I just thought of something. I'll update if I'm right

Aw...I'm a bit disappointed. I was talking about the Jays silicon tips that cured the slight sibilance I was encountering on the GR07. No such luck here.

31mNpM8BG-L._SL500_AA300_.jpg SHE 9750 $26..  OK so just when I thought it wasn't possible to get any bassier than the SHE9700. These are Bassier but at a cost of bass bleed. The bassiest Philips earphones I have ever heard. These give any other bassy earphones a run for warm blown out bass.The comfort level and sound isolation on these are tops and they use a silicone coating over the driver for true comfort in ear but also gathers a lot of ear material and dust because the housing is rubbery.  These are some of the bassiest earphones I have heard and will compete with The JVC HAFX1X and the XePort 5010..

 

These win over the other philips in build and solid construction with a Y cord that is rubberized so microphonics are at a minimum. The overly big bass causes these to have a warmer sound than I prefer and the highs need more presence to be more balanced..Am I impressed.? Well these are good but I wasn't wowed with these as I was with the SHE9700..A bit too warm sounding and almost too bass heavy. While the SHE9700 is also a bass heavy phone the sound is of a higher quality vs these other 2.  While the build is the best on these out of the 3.. The SHE9700 is a clear winner here.

 

So it goes like this

 

SHE9700. Guys that like the SHE3570.. Try these. I would easily put these with the SHE3580 in sound. Even more bigger bass version with just a clean and layered sound.. These are indeed an upgrade to the SHE3580 sounds.

 

SHE9501..Crappy as they come. If you had hearing loss in one ear these will be proper for you as they come out of the box with one side at 1/2 the sound. If that is not a warning to stay away these are the worst build quality of any earphone I have ever purchased. I had pieces of it pop out almost on open box. Forget about it!

 

SHE9750..If you want the bassiest earphones Philips makes and don't care too much about mids and highs. These are for you..Because of the solid build quality these would make perfect Gym/ work out buds. Good but not great..

 

The WINNER!!!!21XwRoY+LqL._SL500_AA300_.jpgSHE9700...Thumbs up on these!!

Oh wait. .What are these??

31hVHl+29JL._SL500_AA300_.jpg31NEqJhGwAL._SL500_AA300_.jpg312bgcvvBEL._AA300_.jpg These are what are coming to me next week. Will give yet another full report.

is it worth spending $10 more for the SHE9700 and are they as comfy as the 3580? since the 9700 seems to have an unique housing.

Both of them are about equal in comfort. The SHE9700 is a smaller earphone as well. I am surprised at how controlled the bass is on these for being a big bass earphone while maintaining clean integrity on the entire sound spectrum. These are impressing me more and more just listening to them. I wouldn't say these are a clear upgrade to the SHE3580 as they both have a very similar sound but where the SHE9700 stand out is the BASS. It is a high end bass sound. Big clean controlled and goes deeeeeep. Very smooth sounding much like the SHE3580 but with bigger bass. The tonality of the sub bass has no equal. These are awesome!!

post #563 of 32864

What particular strikes me are that I believe the SHE9700 actually have been around for quite a few years now.

 

I remember someone telling me a couple years ago that he could easily use the SHE9700 to substitute his Senns IE8 when doing garden work, of course I didn't believe this person back then, but with the deep bass you describe, it somehow makes sense now. 

 

Just to make myself clear.  I haven't heard the SHE9700 and I'm not saying that they sound like the IE8.  I'm just sharing a memory that popped up when I read Dsnuts post about the SHE9700.

Hmm... from this measurement at goldenears even the SHE3580 has more (sub-)bass than the IE8 at full blast:

SHE3580-vs-IE8.jpg

(red and blue: SHE3580 right and left channels; black and grey: IE8 at minimum and maximum bass)

 

(I overlaid the two graphs and centred them at 1kHz.  Because one has y-axis scale markers of 6dB and another of 5dB I also stretched one of the graphs to give the same scale.)

 

If the 9700 actually has more bass than the 3580, sounds like they will be a guilty pleasure deadhorse.gif

I will do more A/B testing tomorrow on these 2 but for now. I am very impressed with the SHE9700. The clarity and detail is striking. So far everything I have heard on them just sound immaculate. I think even you will be impressed with these Joe..I was hoping one out of the 3 would stand out. These more than stand out. These are amazing.

post #566 of 32864

@JoeBloggs That was indeed very quick wink_face.gif  I had a pair of IE8 a long time ago for a short time, so I can't say much about the differences in sub bass, but what I do clearly remember is the upper bass hump around 200Hz that the IE8 has and that the 3580 doesn't.

post #567 of 32864

BTW forget what I said about the SHE9620 some pages back, I found that I did a dud profile on them because I was double-equalizing with both the sound card equalizer and Electri-Q turned on lol.  For a few days there everything sounded wrong and I wondered if I was going crazy or deaf confused_face%281%29.gif If I get around to re-profiling them I will report again here smily_headphones1.gif

Sound-squared Star, PRO.2 E132, and the Panny HJE350? The Stars actually sound decent for 10 bones; really, really bassy, but decent, and if the HJE300 is any indication the HJE350 will sound pretty good too. Looking forward to your thoughts on them, especially the E132 as it looks a lot like the Meelec CX21
