    Sennheiser CX 300B MK II Precision, Sennheiser CX 280, or Philips SHE3590BK/10

    I'm in the market for a pair of IEMs, having never owned a pair besides Apple earbuds, and I'm not really sure what to get. I really want the Brainwavz M3's, but they're a little too pricey for me at the moment. I'm trying to decide between the three in the title of the thread and would like a...

    Some cheap ear buds?

    G'day,   Kind of a strange question for a forums of audiophiles, but I'm looking for some cheap ear buds for School. These head phones get set loose in my pocket, get thrown across the class room and not a care is given. I've tried putting ear buds in a case before, but I just don't have the...

    Review: Philips SHE-3590

       Hey guys, I’m here to write about a review on the Philips SHE-3590. It’s my very first universal-fit IEM that didn’t come with a phone. But before that, I’d like to add a little bit of backstory to my purchase. I’d been long searching for a cheap IEM as a first for me, and I found Dsnuts’...

    Broke my Etymotics...didn't care for them anyways. Need new CHEAP IEM's. help!

    I've had these Etymotic ER-4's for something like 7 years now. The little plastic shaft on one of the earpieces snapped. It was my fault, not the headphones. I'm not that bummed out about it, because the sound signature never really appealed to me. They always felt super dry, analytical and...i...

    Best IEM for under $100?

    Hi, I'm having trouble finding the best IEM I can get for under $100. I know this question is very broad and I need to be more specific, but to be honest, I don't have any knowledge/experience with good IEM. My previous IEM was a Sennheiser CX 500 and at the time of purchase ~4 years ago, it...

    Is IEM tech off topic?

    Kinda wondering about why some IEMs sound so much better than others. How many manufacturers of drivers are there and does the enclosure make that much of a diff? I picked up a pair of SHE3590s for $7 US a couple of days ago and they are phenomenal. Did Philips just get it right with the...

    SHE 3580 VS Skull Candy Titans

    I was looking for new earphones, and these two crossed my mind. I need good bass. I already heard the Skull candy and it sounded great. Is the Philips SHE 3580 better or worse than it? Please, only compare between these two, no recommending other products. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

    Is the Philips SHE3580 'BASSHEAD' Level?

    Hi headfiers:) I see that many people say that the Philips 3580 in earphones are basshead level and have good subwoofer bass, so i am going towards actually buying a pair. I looked at the specs and it says the maximum input power it can take is 50mw. From your experience would it be able to take...

    Need help rounding out my cheapo collection

    First, thank you all for your help in choosing a set of full sized earphones. I started with some cheap Coby's with 40 mm drivers to get an idea of what I wanted in a full sized over the ear set of cans. Feels weird using "cans" since I know so little about headphones and audio equipment in...

    earphones for sleeping

    hi. I am very sensitive to ambient noise when trying to fall asleep. Even with a closed door, I can hear my family members walking and talking, which forces me to go to sleep when all other family members are already asleep. Since ear plugs are uncomfortable for me, I thought of using...

    Sturdy budget earphones, best bang for the buck? (Mostly for text)

    I want the cheapest best-bang-for-the-buck in ear monitor (mostly to listen to text but some music too - for music I have regular headphones). It must be very sturdy - I don't want the cables to break down. It is the usual end of in-ear phones.   What's the best solution for me?   I also...

    For the past ~10 years, the cord on my headphones malfunction within 3-12 months of buying them. Is this normal?

    I've had good experience with warranty/support channels, so it hasn't cost me much money--just a ton of time and frustration. I currently use Klipsch IMAGE S4 headphones, which I love, but my 3rd pain in the last 2 years just started malfunctioning.   Typically what happens is: Various...

    IEMs for laying in bed

    Does anyone have any recommendations for IEMs that fit really well when laying side ways? I love my current headphones, AD700s, but they're impossible to lay sideways with. I was thinking of going with the AT CKM500s because they'd have that AT house sound but I was also looking at the Hifiman...
