I can understand where are you coming from  -  it can be perfectly satisfiying the way described. Havi B3 Pro 1 (old version ) is capable of good bass and sub-bass AND it can  take EQ in the bass really well; it will not distort (within reasonable limits ). This is better than majority of IEMs. However, its bass is not totally neutral - it is a bit shy the lower it goes in frequency. That is why I apply that 3-4 dB boost at 20 Hz, with live music as reference. With...
No. Although Havi B3 is stellar for its size, it can move only so much of air. And that is limited. I make DAMN sure I have the proper seal - particularly while monitoring live recordings with Havi. The easiest way to check for the proper seal is by playing some pink noise; it will instantly reveal any insertion/seal problems. Still, when confronted with really tough material ( I can not think of anything tougher than live microphone feed of drums ), it will reveal its...
@peter123 I have to thank you for your great post(s) during the "desision phase", then still on the Chinese / Asian Brand Info thread.
A very good advice - unless on a really tight budget; if you in very near future for any rason can not ( or not wish to )afford an amp capable of driving the B3 properly, you would be better off with something else that is more efficient.  It is similar to cars; if after purchasing your dream car can not afford for gas and tires required to run it - what is the point of owning such a car in the first place ?
I have not heard Havi B3 Pro 2 - but everybody that did get to hear both versions seem to prefer the Pro 1 (Old Version). Based on the verdicts/recommendations, I will pass the B3 Pro 2. Regarding amp requirement - Pro 1 (Old Version ) is MUCH more demanding than the Pro 2. I do not use ANY smartphone at the moment, so can not say how powerful is the inbuilt amp in the iPhone 4s. The power requirement is also quite person dependant and music style/recording dependant ;...
Can not speak regarding SE535s - never heard them, only 530 ages ago, with an inferiour source to boot. What came out of 530 with that source, was in no way even comparable to B3. What I CAN say is that Havi B3 does not pale in companion of Stax Lambda Pro and AKG K 1000 - there are areas where the big established counterparts are clearly better than the B3  - but at the same time, there are also worse ... Both Stax and K 1000 are yet far more costly than SE535, even...
Here you can see an orchestra composed of predominantely young musicians - live, "behind the stage", what normal concert going public mostly never gets to see :   ( please see post #1032 in http://www.head-fi.org/t/711582/havi-b3-pro-1-impressions-thread/1020#post_10735454 )   from all over the world - Brazil & Germany, Palestine & Izrael ( and most other points on the globe in  between ).   I believe at least some of these musicians will once be in a thread similar...
Hopefully, one day we might see some of these in vinyl form - (please see post #1032 in http://www.head-fi.org/t/711582/havi-b3-pro-1-impressions-thread/1020#post_10735454 ) -  but till that happens, hope you will enjoy the live streaming.  
That the "Pro" in the name of Havi B3 Pro 1 (Old Version ) is meant for real, confirms the following : live streaming of the concert by    Ljubljana International Orchestra http://www.slokaracademy.com/en/concerts/lio-international-orchestra-ljubljana/   Ljubljana International Orchestra by vzivo   http://new.livestream.com/zivo/Ljubljana-International-Orchestra   Streaming is live at this moment ( dress rehearsal/recording of Strauss - Don Quichote ) - the...
