are the SHE3580 good for fast techno and edm with vocals? and how bad are the microphonics compared to the ckm500?

Actually I wouldn't mind trying the S500 even over the FXD80. Too bad it doesn't have the looks of the red S400 but isn't that always the way. Not as good sounding but they make it more attractive.

When do you think the HA-S500 will start popping up on the web im more interested in these as well.

My FX101 silently entered family give-away status. It's my least favorite of the budget IEM's; favored less than the FX40 and CKM500. For whatever reason, FX101 ain't doing it despite liberal amounts of burn-in. The others respect more mids and highs in comparison, the FX40 being the more balanced of the remaining.

Early July is the word. I figure 7/10 or after the second Monday if not delayed.

 

 

What's this...

Any filter/foam in the nozzle you can remove ala the CKS77 and perhaps some mids and highs can be recovered?

That's beyond my pay grade, lol... bigsmile_face.gif

 

I think these are mass-produced and vacuum sealed in some manner.

i dont know if i got it right but, there used to be a mod (kramer mod i think) for the marshmallows and a few others.

 

if your look at the tip of the fx101 you can see a filter over it, take a small bit of perforated foam, anything thats like the material used to cover mic's or cheap over ears etc and stuff it into the nozzel this was amazingly effective at taming sibilance. 

 

cant hurt to try as there wont be much resale in it anyway.

Thanks. Looks doable. Kramer invented this? What else has he been doing since Seinfeld?

I read that the SHE3580 are no longer being made. So snap em up when you see em.

 

The SHE3580 were replaced by SHE3590.

 

Brought a couple over the weekend for the kids and as I'm duty bounded to burn them in before use, will report here if they're any different from my pairs of SHE3580.

 

So far, first impressions, out of box ...they sound the same.

Ugh, stepped on my left FX40 bud this morning while rushing to turn in a project, and it cracked open. Still works fine, so I just need to keep the phone together. Is tape/a bit of elmer's glue fine as a solution?

make sure everything is oriented correctly on the inside. carefully apply a small amount of super glue to the edges, so that none gets inside.

 

My mother called me at work from marshalls today, she found a stash of she3584's (purple) for $6.99, as well as a whole bunch of junk.

 

are the SHE3590's out already? i found what i thought were 3580s at target, but they were in a more half-tube packaging than the rectangle, and i couldn't find the model number on it. I can't really find much difference on the philips website. Other than color schemes, it appears.

Looks like she found some nuggets there, if you don't mind the colours biggrin.gif

 

Apparently, the SHE3590 has been out for quite some time around these parts (Asia) it is indeed rare to find the older SHE3580 here.

The SHE3590 are packaged in the same half-tube PET packaging as the older SHE3580 but proudly boast "Extra Bass performance" on the label instead of the older "Color your Music".
