I am waiting for these to drop in price. Currently they are about 30$ on amazon. If they drop to 20 I will swipe them up. Thank you again for your finds. I am on a budget and can;t afford some 100$ headphones. I recently picked up the monoprice 8320 and can't wait to get them

Are Philips SHE8500 any good vs SHE3850? The site from which I'm going 2 order Panasonic HTF600 in a few days got this SHE8500 and I would need 2 order SHE3850 from another site. So how do they compare to SHE3580? Thanx

I haven't tried those SHE8500.. I think it is more safe to get a SHE3580. I was looking at those online it is a mixed bag of reviews but not many. You can't judge a phone by the way they look. Especially Philips stuff. Get the SHE3580. I suppose if your really curious you can try one of those SHE8500. If so let us know how they are. I tried about 5 Philips phones and so far it has been the SHE3580 and the SHE9700 that stand out among them.

Thanx. I don't care about the looks. I didn't like them more 'cause the look "flashy" it just 'cause they are more convenient 2 get. I guess I'll order SHE3580 anyway. Just waiting 4 my brother 2 finish his work 'cause he's ordering them at his place in Germany and then sending me. I was planning of getting AKG K 420 for portable use but I'm going 2 get SHE3580 and wait till the local store get K420 so I can try them on before buying them or K81DJ. Cheers

Ya I think if you have a fondness for bassy tunes you are in for nice treat. Love the bass on the SHE3580.

post #923 of 32858

I used to do car stereo/subwoofer tuning as a hobby about 10 years ago and the cheap Philips 3580 IEMs sound like a trunk full of high-end subs and amps! Amazing.

Compared to the Meelectronics M6, the 3580 sound is more analytical, probably more accurate and less mid-centric. It also doesn’t have the “magic” going on in the mids the way the M6 does. Isolation is much better on the Philips.

 

I pulled out all of my subwoofer-friendly music again, since it just sounds right on the Philips. Woo-hoo, now I remember all the fun I had with the bass blasting!

 

Thanks to Dsnuts for turning me on to trance music. I’m loving it.

 

I used to listen to a lot of a guy who called himself Bass Mekanik back in the day, now I’m listening again. Amazing how you can almost feel your pant legs flapping and the bass hitting you in the chest with the 3850. Tuesday I used them on stage as a stage monitor, (I play guitar and bass) They sounded a bit harsh, but only in comparison to the glassy smooth sounding M6. I can’t wait to try them with my bass in a couple of weeks when I play that instrument.

 

Finally I’ll be able to hear the fundamental of my low B string (31Hz)… My 1400 watt component bass amp doesn’t even get that low. (I need a new speaker cabinet).

 

Bass Mekanik “Quad Maximus” has test tones down to 10Hz that are clearly audible on the SHE3580. I use the M6 small triple flange for an amazing seal (Funny thing, though, I can’t seem to get a decent seal with the small triple flange on the M6. It’s probably the way that IEM has an angled sound tube and a flatter body). I can clearly hear the 10Hz tone, but it doesn’t get up to full volume until you approach 20 Hz. This is with no EQ, using Rockbox on my Samsung Moment Android phone.

 

The 3850 is almost too bassy for me on some recordings, but just right on the majority of the music I have.

 

I have been lurking since the Monoprice thread. I didn’t jump on that one, but I went for the 3580. I’m glad I did. Thanks guys!

Now that is just awesome. Glad you got some nice newer phones for yourself. You can thank Joe. He was the one that went out on a limb with the Philips. I know all too well about what it is like to introduce an earphone that is not your standard 3 driver custom shelled do dad that cost $500 around here. So I think I understand Joe more than anyone here. lol! But ya love them SHE3580.. Ultimately all this equipment, cheap or not if they can help you enjoy and rediscover your tunes.. That is what this hobby is all about..Enjoy your new found gems my friend and update us with impressions of them.

Thanks to Joe as well!

Running sound tonight- Using the Philips to check the tonality of different instuments and vocals individually. Much more realistic sounding than the M6. With the M6, everything sounded so incredibly good compared to the sound of the band in the room, I wanted to throw them on the floor, 'cause I can't mix the room to sound that beatiful in real life. The 3580 is more accurate, if a little bright, but lacks the detail in the lower mids that the MEE IEMs have.

 

I love the sound of the M6, I really like and respect the Philips.

 

Flip that last statement for EDM, bass-centric music and mix monitoring...

So you prefer the M6s over the SHE3580s?

 

I'm looking to get a pair of Meelecs finally but I don't want to add another IEM to my collection if I don't need it.

Got my M6 on special before Christmas- $11.98 or something crazy like that from MacMall.com. I bought two.

 

Yes, I like the mid-centric sound of the M6 better than the flatter but more boring Philips. I bought the SHE3580 at Target, so I actually paid more for it than the M6.

 

The M6 can be jaw-droppingly, tear-inducingly beautiful on most of my music, from Vivaldi's late concertos to A State of Trance 2011 with a good helping of metal, worship music like Jesus Culture and Hillsong United. I like a lot of oddball stuff, like Dengue Fever and Huong Than and Nyuyen Le.

 

 

The M6 has a bump in the upper bass that could sound a bit congested if it wasn't for the lush, 3D sounding mids and smooth treble.

 

I like the sound a lot with the supplied small tripple flange, but can't get a good consistent seal with them, so I made myself get used to the large tri-flange, (it took several days using them a little at a time before they were comfortable).

 

I had a single driver BA IEM, from Ultimate Ears, until a drummer borrowed and broke them, an the M6 is everything they were not: solid low end, 3D mids and smooth treble.

 

I think I got a steal of a deal on these!

So you prefer the Philips for EDM, bass-centric music and mix monitoring and the M6 for other things?

 

Also it's the first time I've heard the Philips described as flat hehe.  I think its relative the mic'd SHH3580 has a more legitimate claim to that description.

Well I took the Reid and Heath phones back and got the shh3580........I'm impressed! Not had a proper chance to listen but first impressions are very nice bass, really deep and impactful....maybe not the quickest but nice and warm. Highs are nice and mids not bad, need to play!
