I got the internet working, tweaked a bit, but I have a problem, in setting up the gmail and hotmail, through POP settings, any suggestions, from you please.
thx and regards
Nevin Joseph, 24 Jan 2010You've guessed right.... I'm from Kollam. Here the only store worth looking for good earphones... moreI will tell you how much it costs in Cochin. Here there are many stores for buying branded earbuds. And almost everyone sells items for around 30% lower than MRP. So im guessing it should be around 1800.
BTW the SHE9850 is a monster, it should cost around 5k i guess. Read in a review that its better than all of shure's single driver earbuds and not too far behind compared to their double driver model(1 for high and 1 for low freq). The ultimate shure inear earbud comes with 3 drivers.
I found the review if you are interested you can go through it.
physiovinayak, 24 Jan 2010As i had told earlier philips not availabale in my town. So may be i will transfer the amount ... moreOh thats too bad... But here in my home town you gotta pay da MRP. The MRP is 2500Rs. But since I am a regular customer at that particular shop, i got a 100 buck discount. I tried ebay and found one for 2399. but with shipping and other extras, it would add up to almost as same as the MRP. Dude... just try if you can get it for a lower rice. Otherwise, I will be more than happy to help you out any way I can.

physiovinayak, 24 Jan 2010Dude i am feeling so much envious for u owning the SHE 9800.. Awesome review. I better get one... moreDude.... go for it...
there is no words to describe how it sounds... Well i found the perfect harmony in this. The clarity and fidelity of my SHH9700 with the thumping bass that was lacking in my SHH9700. The sound stage is also awesome. Each instrument is clear and distinct. Just into my tenth hour of burn in and already I feel a heck of a lot of difference. I can feel the sound signature changing with time. The treble has become much like my SHH9700. The vocals and mids are much more defined. The bass is strong but not too muddy.
To put it simply.... just what the doc ordered for me. Can't think of anything in this price range that could match up. Sony MDR-EX85Sl is quite a contender but it has been discontinued. How sick can it get. All they have now are the earphones you've talked about earlier MDR-EX35LP. So given the circumstances and price, Philips SHE9800 is the way to go.
See if you can get it at a good deal... Even if you spend 2.5k on it, it is a good buy.

Awesome review. I better get one shipped for myself from ur rnd.. Lolz... After reading ur review i think i will go in for them in the comin month rather thean goin in for MDR ED12LP.
I could try out the sony earphones which come with the phones with the LG usb headsets having the 3.5 mm jack and it worked fine. I am yet to find an LG usb headsets with 3.5mm jack, music and volume control keys on them. If ny1 here can try if such headsets work for the GM200 plz let us know.. I have asked the service center guys to find out reg the headsets but i am yet to hear from them :(
Now i wonder when will LG will fix up the following bugs.
1. Mp3 shud resume once we call up and hang up. At present if v call up while the player is on, it gets off on its own..
2. The msg shud be displayed while we are in middle of a game or an application, so that one can reply then and there, and after thats done the game can be resumed. Same shud be the case with the mp3 player. The music shud pause for a moment wen a msg is recieved and then resume. That will be handy wen we are on bike.
3. Both application and mp3 shud be accessible without the cheat that v ppl are following at the moment though.
4. Is there any possibility that the internal memory of the fone be upgaredec by the firmware updates?
5. The volume rocker keys should be functional even wen the the kepad is locked and if we hold the volume rocker keys for some moments one shud b able to fast forward or rewind the track and also be able to change tracks.
Hope u guyz agree with me!
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2010you are from kottayam or kollam? what abt the sony earbuds you ordered from ebay. Did you get it?You've guessed right.... I'm from Kollam. Here the only store worth looking for good earphones is Quilon Radio Services. But there to the choices are limited. I was lucky enough just to find this piece. In addition, there is also SHE9850 which is too expensive for my budget. I think that's goona be my next pick.
I received the sony earbuds from ebay a week ago. They were fake but the sound was pretty good for a fake. If you haven't tried an authentic sony, you wouldn't even notice the difference. Though it is bassy, it lacks that sony signature. So I sent it back and the shopkeeper was kind enough to refund my full money including the shipping expenses.
It should reach him by tomorrow.
It is so hard to get original stuff these days. Especially form reputed brands like sony and sennheiser. Almost everything sold cheap on ebay is fake.
I also checked out the price of sennheiser CX300II and almost pi##ed my pants. It costs a whopping 3800Rs.
For this price, I definitely think its worth the money I've paid for. Where did you find it for 2000Rs. I've paid 2400 for it as I am their loyal customer.

I use the default setting as a benchmark to judge earphones. Yes 5130 is one step ahead in quality than GM200 as I have compared it. Especially in the lower and mid bass regions. It gives a low frequency hum to the song. Other than that I was unable to find any other differences regarding the quality of both.

And secondly, I can never get the equalizer right no matter how much time I spend tinkering with it.
My favourite equalizer setting in this phone is the Acoustic preset. To me it is at par with the audio of 5130 with equalizer turned off...
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2010Hey happy B'day dude....
Happy to hear that you got yourself SHE9800. How are the soundstage ... moreThanx m8....
Well I bought it this evening. Straight out of the box, it sounds better than my Philips SHH9700 and Sony MDR-ED12. It's like I've got the perfect combo of both. The clarity and frequency response of SHH9700 with the perfect bass that is a signature of most sony earbuds. Yes the soundstage is another noticeable factor. The stereo spacing and the different instrumentals are quite well defined and stands out well.
And all this in the first hour of listening. can't wait till I put on some more hours of burnin. Already I feel the sound signature changing. The treble and mids are already showing improvements. I feel the higs to be a bit more subtle and not as harsh as the SHH9700. It sound more natural. Philips has done a very good job fine tuning to make it sound as natural as possible.
I've paid 2400 for it. Its the best deal I could find in my city. It comes in great wuality packing. Like something fit for a king. The pouch is quite handy too. Another good thing is that the caps of my SHH9700 are interchangeabe with this one.
Now I'm a beliver....

It tends to be bloated at times and is mostly only good for hearing to techno or hip hop. MOst of the time midrange gets lost in bass and high pitched treble. SE do not use mega bass in their latest phns like W995. Looks like SE has decided to follow the nokia model and produce products with audiophile pleasing sound like the iphone 3GS.
Nevin Joseph, 23 Jan 2010Thanx m8...
And BTW I got myself a Philips SHE9800 as a birthday gift. Just bought it today... moreHey happy B'day dude....
Happy to hear that you got yourself SHE9800. How are the soundstage and bass buddy? I know it will be a lot better than many of the higher priced models. How much did it cost you.
physiovinayak, 23 Jan 2010Happy Birthday Mate.
God Bless U :)
U roc man!
And BTW I got myself a Philips SHE9800 as a birthday gift. Just bought it today evening.
Well for first words what can I say? It's simply awesome. Straight out of the box, it sounds better than anything I've heard till now. I'm just gonna let it burn in for a few hours and will post the detailed review later. I have great expectations for this thing. Lets just hope it will live upto its expectaions.
