I immediately googled it but couldnt find any detailed reviews of it... So I decided to go with panasonic and ended up buying them for 599/-..
The local shops even had philips she-8500(never heard of them before) and some other philips models as well but none of them stocked SHE-9700/9800 or similar models... The price of the she-8500 was just 450/-!!!...do u have more info.on this particular model?
novice, 23 Apr 2011hi.dnt buy costly earphones.they are equally damaging to ears as cheap chinese ones. so buy so... moreI know what you mean. Unlike our friends utk and sidewinder, I can't grab one of those philips in ears as they ain't available on the market. I have used the Wh-205 headset from a friend of mine (got free with his 5530) and in my opinion, its very uncomfortable. Its default ear buds are nightmares. And the volume wasn't very satisfying.
As for chinese ones, I had many. They are less durable but are very good in bass department and volume (level 10 of wh-205 or ep-630 is equal to level 6 in these in ears). But the mids and highs are devastating. I realised this when I started using a Sennheiser PMX-60 over the ear neckband headset. These produce way too less bass but is damn clear. Only problem is that its not at all a value for money product as it costs almost as that of philips she-9800. I got mine from a friend at a high discount.
Plz tell me wich messenger is best 4r 5233...im using nimbuzz nw...is any other best option??

The panasonic one you mentioned is an ordinary earplug whereas the Philips ones are IEMs(In-ear monitors). IEMs have better bass response and noise isolation.
hi utk, what about wh 701! compare it with philips one and tell me which is better.
hi.dnt buy costly earphones.they are equally damaging to ears as cheap chinese ones. so buy some good inear chinese earphone in less than 100 rs. but you have to find some yourself. i have one it has better bass than originl sony headphone wity extreme deep bass. high piched sound is a bit low but it cn b adjusted by modifying equalizzer settings. chinese headsets are crap but some r.good.too. find if u cn.
n-man, 22 Apr 2011thx frnd 4 ur valuable reply...but still confused which 1 to buy(after u said about philips)..... moreWell u could go for the panasonic rp-hv220 as I have compared them with philips she-3580 and I felt the panasonic ones to be much better than philips...the panasonic rp-hv220 will cost u 599/- and though not many reviews of these are available on the net they are great value for money IMO...
n-man, 22 Apr 2011thx frnd 4 ur valuable reply...but still confused which 1 to buy(after u said about philips)..... moreFor Rs800 you can buy Philips SHE3680(699MRP)or it's smaller cousin SHE3580, finding one in local stores can be a pain though. They are better than EP-630 or the WH-205.
As far as EP-630 is concerned, well it's good if you can get them in the sub Rs600 range(I got mine for Rs550), make sure it's the real deal and not some cheap chinese copy. Some stores sell them for Rs800-950, frankly I wouldn't buy it for that price that too when I can get the SHH9700 for around Rs1000(that's what I paid for them, it's not a bad choice even if you have to pay Rs1499). OK now the reason I say EP-630 is not worth Rs800-900 is because I can get SHH9700 by paying Rs200 extra. Don't get me wrong, the creative is definitely not a bad earphone and is better than WH-205(even in the bass department) but it's no where near the SHH9700 in terms of sound quality.
SHH9700 has crystal clear sound, deep lows, good mid and highs. There is good separation between different sound chords which is very pronounced when listening to rock/metal songs. You can clearly differentiate the different/multiple guitar chords even when there is booming bass drums playing in the background. In the case of EP-630/WH-205 it's kinda like a muddy mixed bag. The lack of decent sound stage is a big minus too. SHH9700 has good sound stage, not as good as the costlier SHE9800 but way better than EP-630 or WH-205(I even tested some 3D stereophonic records and the result was dismal for creative and WH-205, SHH9700 was awesome with almost full 360 degree effect coupled with proper illusion of directionality and depth perception).
Overall I'll say go for Philips SHE3680/3580(ie if you can find them, try Philips Arena stores) or SHH/SHE9700 if it's available for Rs1000. Next in line would be EP-630 followed by WH-205.
If anyone is looking to buy headsets under 1k I would suggest you go for panasonic rp-hv220...i bought one for myself 2 days back for 599/- from planet m...the sound quality of these is really good...
For everyone looking for headsets under 1k:
check out the panasonic rp-hv220...bought one for myself 2days back for 599/- from planet m and I must say they're pretty good...
n-man, 22 Apr 2011thx frnd 4 ur valuable reply...but still confused which 1 to buy(after u said about philips)..... moreWell mate I second utk's opinions. The problem is that your budget of 800rs seems to sit in an awkward position as unfortunately there ain't any good earphones available at this price range. If you can get an EP-630 for that price well and good. For 349rs WH-205 offers great audio quality and as utk pointed out it's a great value for money earphone. In addition, the builtin call button and mic is a bonus. I have a pair with me right now which I borrowed from my uncle who got it bundled with his 5800. The only downside of it is the poor highs and mids. But on the brighter side, it's got loads of bass - something which is favored by the vast majority of people. If you yearn for a bit more audio quality, I suggest you extend your budget at least to 1500. At this price range there are a lot of options like the sound magic PL30 and philips shh9700 etc. You might even consider sony's ex50sl. Not as balanced as 9700 but still better sounding than WH-205 with powerful bass and average mids and highs. It costs around 990.
