Who has both? Which do you prefer?
I've got all three.
The SHE3580 are just extremely fantastic for the money and should belong in everyone's inventory as the starting guage for good sounds.
Both FX101 and FX40 are at a level above the Philips, the 101 has a 'fun' sound and I use mine mostly for walking, commuting, outdoors, etc. The FX40 are really good for critical listening in a quiet place, they do extremely well at low volumes.
The FX40 has the best SQ in just about everywhere including the bass(sub bass extension)
They are my favourite ...especially after fitting the memory foam tips that came with it.
