I might have to get another pair of H3s, next time the local Sony shop has another half price sale, even though I'm not a fan of the over ear deal. Fron memory they should edge my FiiO E07k amped V-MODA M-80s and Xiaomi Piston iems straight from my Note 2 (Spotify Premium source). Not to mention the Sony MDR V55s and Ultimate Ears UE6000s I gave away recently. Scary how good the Pistons sound for the money. The MDR V55s were nice, must stop giving 'phones away when I'm faded.
One year down the track the white pads are slightly dirty, courtesy of my friends. No peeling on them. They've seen off the Ultimate Ears UE6000s and the V-MODA M-80s for sq (but not the XBA H3 iems I foolishly gave away). Yes they creak (or has it gone?) but are my favourite cans. Xiaomi Piston v2 iems are still on top (killer bass and a touch warmer and less congested) thru an FiiO E07k using a Sammy Note 2 and Spotify premium as my source. PS Tried my workmate's new...
The Sony XBA H3s I got for half price put my full size cans to shame (Sony MDR V55, Logitech UE6000 with FiiO E07k Andes amp) in all regards but size of soundstage, so the customs should impress.
Lol, oops
More like 157 mm
So I picked up my H3s tonight and thought I'd give my first impressions. I plugged them in to my Sammy Galaxy Note 2 half an hour ago and the material is via Spotify Premium. These iems are something special. Powerful, dynamic sound with slammin' bass, smooth midrange and crisp treble. Bags of detail. Comfy too. I'd say they've got my Sony MDR V55s and Logitech UE6000 cans beat in every respect except soundstage. Seperation of each instrument is actually better but the...
Makes a change as we usually pay through the nose down here in NZ. Had to get my UE6000 cans from Amazon. Even with fifty bucks for freight I still saved over $100.
Yeah I thought the price might raise a few eyebrows. Here's a pic of the receipt to prove I'm legit. Sorry sfwalcer they said it was the last pair nationwide. The 50% off deal was to compete with another electronics store (that doesn't sell Sony) apparently.
Popped into the Sony store down here in the South Pacific (NZ) yesterday, despite my GF's protestations. Low and behold 50% off headphones. I'm after some IEMs and was considering Hifiman re400s for NZD170. Guy at the Sony store showed me some XBA H2s. They didn't have the H3s but he found the last pair in the land in Wellington. Paid NZD 175 (USD154) and pick them up on Thursday. Will give you my two cents worth next weekend.
Ask him why he wants to be a sheep and look like the rest of the flock. The flock that paid extra for an inferior product because it was shiny and 'cool'. I think paying extra for something of lesser quality just because of a label is either immature or ignorant or both.
