Summary: The sound quality of these earbuds is actually pretty good for the price, but I bought them to use with my iPod at the gym. As soon as I start sweating, the earbuds start coming out and sometimes out completely. I plan to keep them, but I'll have to buy a different pair to use at the gym.
Summary: Review of the Philips SHE 3590- a miracle under $20 (can actually be had on ebay under 15$ or 10$)
First I would like to say that I’m sad that Philips is discontinuing this gem. The pair I’m reviewing is my 2nd pair(in the pink, yes it was the last pair left in the store, but I learning to enjoy the colour) after nearly 3 years of faithful service from my first pair. I’m curious if they changed the sound since the last time I heard them.
Pros: fantastic sounding, great isolation, small footprint
Cons: cable build quality is a underwhelming (tougher than it looks), cheap feel, only provided 3 silicone tips
Summary: The SHE3590 was the biggest surprise I've had in years. it's decently balanced, has good but not overwhelming bass, and generally sounds clear and surprisingly refined.
Pros: amazing sound for price, cheap, small, comfortable, great isolation, many color options
Summary: Accessories: Three sizes of single-flange silicone eartips.
Build Quality/Design: This is probably the only part of these IEMs that feels like it belongs at the price point. The housings are entirely plastic and don't feel extremely durable but not extremely fragile either. Little driver flex is present. The cable is very poorly relieved, with no strain relief at the housing end and stiff relief at the 1/8" plug.
Pros: Very pleasant sound signature, comfortable for many ear shapes and sizes, incredible value
Summary: Sooooo...after 2 years of faithful service, my trusty westone um1s have finally played their last song and died (the left earpiece has no sound coming out of it) so i figured it was time to get a new pair. I've since ordered the eytomic hf5, but until they got here, i needed another pair because apple earbuds hurt my ears. As such, i got another set of these guys, which also happen to be the first ever set of in ears i ever purchased, and i was not disappointed..
Summary: I picked these up as a quick replacement for my H20Audio in ear headphones that had failed. I run frequently, 3+ times a week and had been using waterproof headphones to combat the sweat that quickly ruined all of my Apple in-ear headphones (and others). I figured for the price, I could buy ten of these Philips sets for the price of the H20Audios.
