You youngins better recognize.

I think you just like the mustache ;)

BTW I also jumped on the deal... the xba-3 will have to wait

Does the m6 sound vastly inferior to the She3580?

I am all about the fro. The drummers got it going on! Now there is a man that is not afraid to show it. 

 

@prakhar. After owning the CC51s I have never ever bought another meelec earphone. I can't tell you if they are. Can anyone chime in on this? I will tell you I much prefer the SHE3580 over my Meelec CC51s.

Dsnuts, 

Have you ever tried the CK 700?
I heard they were meant to be good, but I don't know how they would compare to my FX 101s

once a reaaaally worn out meelec large tip got separated and stuck in the ear, but that was more due to the fact that it was worn out rather than anything else.

Round about the same price as those AWEIs

 

Ye i have them both the AWEI are a bit  better. If you live in the US i could see why you wouldn't recommend them, there are so many better options and most of them are around $10 to $20 (ebay - amazon etc.). But i can't get my hands on most of the earphones you recommend in the EU or i have to pay +$35 for it. I like the AWEI for their price and i don't have to fork out another $35 for a decent set of IEM if they break like my M1 or Xeports. These are a good gift for friends with apple earbuds :)

 

I really want to try out the FX31 but $40 on ebay sigh....

Wow I feel for that Dragon2knight. Why can't guys have some open minds. I can see some fools getting banned or getting a stern warning from that thread. I have been in his shoes more times than I would like to remember so I can definitely relate. Poor guy getting bashed like that.

 

Sometimes it ain't worth sticking your neck out to tell about a product on these threads. Too many critics. The damn phone is $35. Lol. It ain't like it is a $300 phone. It is what it is.

Sorry about the non recommend Majin. I was impressed by the sheer brute bass they have but once that initial Wow is gone and you start listening to them more and more I started to pick out more inconsistencies in the sound. I think for the price and the fact that it actually is built better than so many earphones I have is enough for anyone to try out but you are right there is too many to choose from now a days that does sound better for just a bit more in cost. I don't know if you have ever tried a FX101.

 

I am sure you can pick one of them up for much cheaper than the FX31. That is what I would consider a great cheapo bass phone. While the build is much cheaper than the Awei's. The sound is what makes them outstanding. Many of the cheaper Philips phones as well.  Another would be the Philips SHE9700. I know these have been around a while but these are another proper bass earphone on the cheap that actually is an upgrade to the mighty SHE3580..

 

I have to admit if EDM and hiphop was your main listening the AWEIs do sound good with bassy genres. That bass was unexpected. Lol.

Ye i pretty much checked out all the IEMs you suggested, but the only place i can get them is ebay and $27 for the FX101 doesn't sound like a good deal. I think i read you compared them with the xeport 5010 somewhere and they were kinda on par? (correct me if i'm wrong, it has been a while)

post #4002 of 25522
The She5105 is also an upgrade to he 3580 as well, right?
post #4003 of 25522

HI Dsnut !!! So , Sony MDR XB 90 EX will be a SUPERB UPGRADE to my CKS 55 !!!

I remember you once said CKS 77 is entirely a whole level when compared to CKS 55

Hahaha I quite enjoy my CKS 55 and maybe I 'm still new to IEM world

So, I think XB 90 gonna to satisfy even more and I gonna anticipate it ><

YES!

 

The M6 has these "metalic" sounding highs, also IMO the sound is "thinner" , the bass is typcal bass from cheapos iems, the Bass from the 3580 goes depper and cleaner.  Both got recesed mids but the 3580 is a bit better in that aspect.   in my ears, the M6 sounds like cheap destkop speakers the 3580 sounds like a nice sounding sound system.
