Thanks for the lead Danny. Appreciate it. Will look into it.

This is a very well packaged product. The build is really nice for a $50 iem although I'm not quite a fan of the flat cable.
As for the sound... I'm very disappointed! frown.gif

This is NOT the Pro version that @bhazard
 has described. The bass is overly boosted and bloated, more than the Sony Ericsson MH1. The lower mids is a bit recessed but sounds a worse than it actually is because it's being drowned by the bass bloat/bleed. What surprises me is how linear it is from upper mids to highs; smooth treble and well extended, even better than the Sony! If you have a Sony MH1/MH1c, turn on your bass boost and that's almost exactly how the HAVI B3 sounds.

Because of this unfortunate outcome, I'm not going to include the B3 in my review. I'm going to either ask for a refund or maybe order the Astrotec AX35 as a replacement. Too bad Chinese New year is going to delay this process.

Yours might actually be the newest version. This "enhanced" tuning sounds even worse. This has the bloat, forward mids, and a large treble roll off.

What the heck were they thinking in no longer offering the pro? I've been a/bing the pro and enhanced version, and the difference is night and day. One is near reference, and the other is nowhere near as clear or extended, and very colored.

D, see if wide biflanges or Sony hybrids remove some of the bloat. It may salvage your version.

I wouldn't recommend anyone else to buy it either, unless someone can speak to Havi in Chinese and ask them to offer the pro tuning again. Very disappointing.

I have to track down a cached webpage or tour these so I don't look crazy.

Exactly. I got completely spun skimming through the read and seein MA750's. I thought he was hyping the sony's and darn near had a stroke. Had to do a double take to get the pulse rate down.

 

Now when I see the phrase "Also born Chic" after an espousal of origin that is decidedly not French, it begs the question. When you say born chic, does that mean you are something else now?

I ordered my B3 from the Taobao website and love them for the price I paid. They included lots of gifts including a cleaning cloth, hard zipper case and additional foam tips. I think i have mentioned before that there are still some pro versions circulating at the time I ordered around 2 weeks ago. They were advertised as such and I believe i got what i ordered.

Sound was fantastic for vocals and instruments. There was no bloated bass to speak of and definitely no muddiness at all. I should know, i am an unashamed anti-basshead. Love it.

Thanks for the recommendation, bhazard.

Nah, it's impossible for this thread to ever be off topic.

Nah, they are fine - some members are just discovering some profound truths and words can't convey their emotions, so they have to resort to more visual means. 

And anyway, unless you broaden your understanding of the word "discovery", this has always been an off topic thread and that begs the unanswerable question - when does an off topic thread stop being on topic?

Leo888, 

I did some listening yesterday and today with the Heaven V Aging, S2 and MA750 using the DX50.  I'd advise to download the new firmware 1.28 for the DX50 released today.  Sounds really nice.  

I'll start with the vocals.  The edge goes to the FAD and the S2 comes a close second.  The S2 tends to show some sibilance on occasion but the FAD doesn't.  There's a little more air with the S2 being open but still the FAD's shine a little more.  It has a thicker note and shines with male vocals more over the S2.  The MA750's lag behind both due to the bass being more intrusive and sounds recessed compared.  

Instrument separation is apparent with the S2 and the openness of the sound helps here.  I here it with the MA750's also but I can pinpoint it better with the S2 and FAD.  The FAD's ability to define the instruments places it on top again.  Bass guitar notes sound excellent out of the FAD's.  

The MA750's sound the thickest and the S2 is on the thin side.  The FAD's are between the two.  Bass speed goes to the FAD's then S2 and MA750 last.  I wouldn't call the S2 thin but comparing the three, that's where it's placed.  

The MA750's have that big sound and works well with EDM, trance and is fine with most other genres.  S2's sound fine with most genres too but it excels with female vocals, acoustic and most music that sounds good with lots of air.  The FAD's being somewhere in the middle works well with everything I throw at it.  The key is definition of instruments, vocals and placement is the best here.  I don't find the other two really lacking compared but I enjoy the sound out of the FAD's the most and hear it more clearly.

The FAD's are the only armature driver of the three and also it's only a single driver.  The sound that comes out of it really doesn't sound like any armature driver I've heard.  It sounds more like quads.  I say this because I've heard dual, triple and quads and it reminds me of the TG334 which has quad drivers.  I can't stand thin armature driver sound and my experience with IEM's like the Meelec. A151 which comes to mind just blew any confidence I had with single armature drivers.  I realize there's plenty out there that are more than capable I haven't heard but it's a point of reference for me.  It has the clarity of an armature driver but shows authority and pure sonic enjoyment I get from dynamic drivers.  

The FAD's are the best balanced without recession in any frequency and I don't hear any frequencies that are overly tuned.  It's definitely not flat sounding because I can't stand that type of sound either.  I think many would enjoy this sound and it's my new mid-tier point of reference.  

I enjoy it as much as the H3 and more so than the Doppio's.  All three sound nothing alike so that's another comparison for someone more capable which I'm sure will do down the road.  
Pretty enjoyable read. Nice comparisons, and thanks danny.
Thanks for the impressions...still waiting for my Heavens, shipping from Taiwan, so who knows when they'll get here. I have the other 2, I've never been the biggest booster of either one, curious to see how I'll take to HEAVEN
Have been liking Oms, as mentioned earlier, Pistons on kazillion hour break in...
Later..

Nah, still the guy as I was born to be. Ok, the word chic may means chick with other languages but it's supposed to mean conforming to current fashion and or style.

So, in essence to what I means by chic is to be able to conform to the current styles and flavours which props out from this thread. You get such varied mix and matches with anything related to head gears to be had here. Gears, music, drama and best of all trolling. Conforming is needed to really enjoy what goes on in the thread.

So, cheers to all who have kept this going.
