I'm sadly not as excited about the HF3s I got as some of the other posters here. I'm giving them a chance for a couple more days but I think come next week I will be putting them in the for-sale forum...

What you don't like about them?  Are you a hip-hop listener?

LOL, no. If anything, they're a little warm for my taste. It's more that the earphones themselves annoy me: the short cable, the remote (which I don't need), the fit, etc. They are good SQ for the price but I place a high value on comfort, too. I have ears which are hard to fit IEMs.

 

Jim, I actually have multiple PMs already... haven't read them yet. If I decide to sell in a few days I will be giving preference to non-US buyers since they can't get them directly.

That sounds very fair...

I like your thinking.

Thanks, Jim

Some people with small ear canals find them uncomfortable, I have HUGE canals the big triple flange tip is the one that fits me really well.

 

I know you won't have any problems selling them.

 

P.S. Someone mentioned that BestBuy was selling these on their stores, funny thing that I go there every week and I have never seen them on sale there.

^^^^They usually have them in the Magnolia centers, they actually carry the ESW9 and 900X now too which actually impressed me the other day.

I use the Klipsch medium and large single flang tips, they are the only tips that are not uncomfortable, they are actually the most comfortable iem's I have used next to my x10i's, they fit exactly the same but with more isolation, I listen to underground hip-hop and these sound great if you are using a headphone amp or sound card, if you are running it straight out of an ipod these can lack bass for bass heavy genres but still sound great in my opinion, these sound warm to you?

Mine HF3 are showing up today! Earlier today, my Etymotic tip kit arrived. How cool is that timing?

Well I just got my hf3's and there's no way I'm keeping these. They are making the mids on my triplefi's seem super-recessed. :(

 

If any of you non-US people want my pair .... PM me and we can discuss the shipping costs.

 

Considering some advice from Astroturf... I suppose I'll give them more them another chance.

Really? I mean... No Really?

 

That was quick, could you be more clear on what they did or didn't do for you?

 

Thanks, Jim

And that's a bad thing?
