Im thinking about picking up XB30EX. I know tat they are not as good as the XB90s but they shouldn't sound to bad. What do you think?

The xb60ex are supposed to be pretty close to the 90s, but maybe someone can comment on the xb30ex and how they compare to the 60, 90, and the cks77... which are in the same price range as the 30's.

I think they're using the same technology they used in the new xb iem's which produce some amazing low end so it got me curious.  The pads look odd too as you can see here.

(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

Bassy done proper with overall smooth clean balance to boot. Call me impressed!.. OMG. Wow! I am so impressed with these.!! Sounds just too good to believe.Only issue. These have that J cord  and short 2ft with an extension. Thumbs up huge on these guys. You want a bassier She3580 done right these are it. The SHE9551 I had before has nothing on these. Forget those oneil ones these are what are proper..The sub bass on these are so clean and big it just brings a huge smile. Also the highs and mids are properly proportioned and smooth sounding much like the SHE3580... Keepers!.  Feq 6hz-23.5khz  103db sensitivity  16ohm  3 sized tips and come with case and extension.  WORTHY!  Next up the SHE9500

I can't find anything that is off on these at all in fact on careful listening of the 2 detail on the SHE9700 wins. That being said the detail on the SHE3570 is very satisfactory as well.  Looking at the 2 earphones the SHE3580 and the SHE9700.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if both of these are using the same drivers. The housing diameter is exactly the same with almost the same sound.  I think the SHE9700 has a better housing design for acoustics. The overall sound on the SHE9700 is a bit cleaner sounding. The housing has double the room of the SHe3580 the SHE9700 has more detail and a bit more defined on both ends. Otherwise the sound is almost exactly the same.

 

Think of the SHE9700 as the SHE3580 plus.  Both are great sounding earphones and I would consider the SHE9700 a bit more refined sounding SHE3580.. If you guys just want one for casual listening save the money and just get a SHE3580 and save yourself $15. But if you already have a SHE3580 and want a bit more refined version. That would be the SHE9700.

 

thank Dsnuts, Joe Bloggs, james444, and all Head-Fiers for this amazing thread!

 

now i know i got the best bargain on two of the best In Ear Monitors on earth. please meet Philips SHE9700 (SHE5105) & SHE3580 (SHE3570, SHE3575, SHH3585, SHE3590, SHE3595, SHE3680) for only up to USD 25 each! kudos to Philips for making this lovely SHE9700 still alive, here in Indonesia. :D

 

i owned two SHE9700 and just now bought SHE3575 (need the mic for android phone), very satisfied with the three of them. i agree the SHE9700 has more punchy sub-bass and clearer wide fidelity than SHE3580 variant. :)

 

if you happened to have SHE9700 and SHE3575 while using the small ear tips on SHE9700, consider try to use the SHE9700's medium ear tips on SHE3575, more comfort and more bass right out of the box! What a perfect match those two.. HeHe :P

So, we've been on the FX 40 and 101 for a while. Any new cheapo or moderately priced discoveries as of late? I would love to build an army of giant killers.

What about trying this iem:  Panasonic RP-HJE355,  JK1 always talks about them and there are almost no comments or review on HF about this?

yea.. i cant comment on that beacuse i had issues with them. even with a bunch of tips and comply tips, i got issues with using them.
If they change the design or make that nozzel a little bit larger more people could enjoy them.

 

so its not a surprise that overall, the Fx40 has a higher score,  easy to use, almost no fit issues.

 

 

Dsnuts scores again!

If you don't feel like spending for a CKM500 or a FXD80..I was listening to my old pair of FXC51s last night. They cost $25 and are JVCs first micro driver earphones. They sound great for the price payed. Give them a go.

I ended up selling my pair. These are just ok. I like the JVC stuff much better than these.. There is nothing that really stands out on them. These will be good for the gym or casual use but beyond that the JVCs beat all of them hands down. Just mediocre is the best way to describe them. The older Philips earphones the SHE3580 SHE9700 are better and has much better dynamics than these.

how is the isolation on the sony XB#0EX with the stock sony hybrids, compared to the SHE3580 with the sony hybrids?

 I would have done a comparison for you but it is currently on loan. Just from memory,the isolation is pretty good on the XB90eX. I haven't tried a pair of comply foamies yet but I bet it will be great noise blocker. Those things are a build going into your ears. The passive isolation is not bad on the SHE3580 for being small plastic. I would need to compare once I get my XB90 back.
