I recently ordered some similar looking foam products but several that work are bi flanges, foam type and hybrids. I noticed if you get a tip with a smaller outlet hole than the driver size these are ideal for better sound on them..

 

I don't think these are for everyone but for guys that like the dynamic driver sounds..These are solid imo. I read that you are a percussion guy as so you will definitely enjoy these.. I love how I can make out every high hat note and pitch with clarity on these.  I know you are a man with many a high end iem and I was hoping these would not disappoint..Enjoy a new phone that don't cost much..

your not going to like what i have to say so i won't say it. :)

i will say this, it's good to have an opinion.

This is kinda funny. What does these look like to you guys. Well some of you guys will know. 41tXlXP7U4L._SL500_AA300_.jpgJust say no to ihip. I got some NFL headphones from these guys.. Indeed the worst sounding headphones on the planet. I am willing to bet money on it.

does the philips she3580 suffer from driver flex?

I don't think so. So far so good we haven't had anyone with that issue.

I can't stop listen TTwith  Reinforce plasticine housing, and foam inside stock tip .... all things are amplified, what i most like,  is surrounding presence Increased with awesome detail.

In good recordings, and special live's  the imagin is amazing.


The plastic material of Isurus, dispels much of the excellent sound of your drives ..... with plasticine wrapped in duct tapecould alleviate some of this dissipation.

 

 

This May explain why the CK-99 uses the titanium housing. (I'm not saying it is rebrands, but Isurus drives isn't from cheapos iems).

So far (with Monster foam hybrids), the Isurus' bass sounds as deep as the DDM (1). It maybe a smidgen lighter in quantity. It also doesn't sound as muddy as the DDM. Mids are seem to be a bit more forward than the DDM; and there is definitely more treble presence than the DDM. 

Yes, I'm comparing it to the DDM because that is the IEM that reminds me the most of the Isurus. Only thing the Isurus is lacking is the unique layered sound the DDM possesses with its dual drivers. I would dare say the the Isurus is clearer sound than the DDM though (I'm talking about the way my DDM sounds now with hundreds of hours of burn-in on it compared to this one with not even an hour on it). 

 

Still wouldn't put the Isurus anywhere close to the FXT90, GR07 or RE262, but it's right there with the DDM and Shure 215. Again, this is without burn-in. EX600? Not quite there but closer than I expected it to be. This is a marvel to my ears for $20. I was very skeptical to be honest, but thought I would give my first "cheapie" a test drive and thus far it's succeeded over expectations. So right now, I would call the Isurus a clearer less-layered sounding DDM. Best I could compare it too. I think if you like the DDM  you will like the Isurus. Bass is deep and kind of muddy (a tad) with the hybrids, but I expect that to clear up. Notes are thick like the JVC FXT90, but not as clear and transparent (although the FXT90's sound is a little bit warmer than the Isurus). More initial impressions to come (by the way this is all coming from listening through the Fiio E10/E9 combo. So yes, these earphones amp nicely with the Fiio)....

 

Nice soundstage and instrument separation too... The Isurus is like a mixture of the DDM and the TF10 (if it was a dynamic). DDM is warmer sounding, however, and the TF10's mids aren't as forward as the mids are in the Isurus.... Treble is quite a bit brighter in the Isurus than in the DDM...

Nice.. I am from the opposite camp. I went from headphones to cheapie earphones cus that is what I had. Always kinda overlooked earphones. Cus being from the headphone camp. Earphones can't sound as good as full sized headphones. So I thought. I suppose most cheap stuff do end up sounding cheap minus the earphones on this thread and a few notable others.. After I had a brain fart and realized not only do earphones give serious competition to full sized headphones but offer the best absolute bang for your dollar in sound quality per dollar spent. I have been on a earphone bender ever since. Got 6 new ones coming to me..The wife would kill me if she saw all these earphones. My answer is always. I am trying to find a good phone for the customers dear.

 

Now I am discovering the higher end iems and loving it.. Discovery thread it is.

Okay, foam tips are really no good (right now) for the Isurus. It deepens the bass, yes (would make a basshead proud), but it also muddies the bass. These need a silicon tip. Using a MEEL 11 large double-flange now. Wow!!

I am an award winning Cell phone dealer/ business owner for 14 years.. It is natural that I have a lot of down time so I have my computer set up with all that I need for music and gaming.  Yes I slack a lot but this gives me much time to discover gems like the ones you are hearing..I also sell headphones here to my unassuming customers. Basically they get to buy my rejects. Lol!!.. So I can afford to order the occasional dud only to find out they are indeed duds and I quicky repack it and sell them off..To my customers they get some of the best sounding stuff. Your average non audiophile only cares for one thing and one thing only .. MOAR BASS!. It can be as muddy as flabby as they get but. It must be quality if it has bass!.

 

I was gonna say. You should try out some double flanges..Sound changes quite a bit with different tips more so on the isurus than any other earphone I have. Try this try that..

Great! Thanks for sharing your story, and may your business continue to prosper. Interesting enough, the Isurus' mic didn't work with my Samsung Vibrant for some reason... beerchug.gif

By the way, I have been measurng the resonance peaks of many cheapie headphones I bought (the Philips SHE3580, SHE8005, SHE9620) and on all these phones there's at least one resonance peak that shifted in frequency after a few hours of use. If your ears are more sensitive to the original peak frequency than the new one that could translate to a reduction in sibilance, for example. As for me, I tune out those resonant peaks by EQ and a small shift in the peak frequency could cause my parametric EQ to partly miss the peak, which should be audible. So I check the frequency response of all my phones from time to time to spot changes. Granted the change could just as well result from the tips breaking in rather than the drivers, but a change is still a change. Then again if my comparison between an old and a new pair of SHE3580 is anything to go by, people do seem to make way too much of the amount of change that could take place wink.gif

Anyway there's a dedicated thread in the sound science sub forum for discussing burn in rolleyes.gif

Update, got a refund for the IEM's with no issues, he doesn't want me to ship the IEM's back and seemed concerned that I received something that wasn't in new condition.

Rec'd the JLabs medium tips today & stuck them on the Tts. They feel pretty good and as was mentioned perhaps lose a bit of the seal, but they sound pretty good so far, and I don't really notice any loss of bass. Gonna put some time on them tonight.
