This time, the box has a marking to distinguish it. SWEET!

 

This is the kick ass version that I love. Like it says, works best with an amp, but most head-fi'ers have that covered.

Okay, you have my interest. What's the overall sound signature, besides being "for audiophiles", and how can I get one as an American?

Oh crap, that's pretty cool.  I wouldn't have imagined.  Thanks for pointing that out.  :beerchug:

 

Here are some pics of the H3, Oyaide and TE-05's connectors.

Cool! Hardly ever go to the first page and read the headlines. Jude also with the TE-05 love...http://www.head-fi.org/a/2013-head-fi-winter-gift-guide-in-ear-headphones#user_fostex_te-05

 

Danny that Oyaide connector does look slightly different and though it fits probably the contact points are off so it cuts out. Does it work okay on the H3 or the same thing?

I should have my H3 back tomorrow or Friday to find out and I'll report back.

Danny, how does the cable feel? Looks pretty thin compared to the others, which could influence reliability.

 

Also, will those connectors fit the UE900's smartphone cable?

The cable seems to be the weakest part of the earphone and reminds me of some Meelectronics earphone cables. But, it doesn't seem too bad in build and seems fairly durable.

I believe it's the same connectors as the UE900's but the housing could be the issue to get a proper fit. I think the Oyaide cable advertises as fitting the Shure's and UE900's too.

With all the love FAD gets on here, I'm surprised nobody is hyping their first pair of cans. These things are BEAUTIFUL!!

I think maybe it's because the PHVI is generally a bit more expensive than most of the gear here in the discovery thread. I did have them for a month and they sounded and looked absolutely amazing though. Just sold them a few days ago because I couldn't deal with the comfort issues.

Bass:  Cardas is really thick.  A mix of sub-bass and mid-bass.  Doesn't sound as controlled as the other two.  TE-05 has more sub-bass over the V's.  V's have more mid-bass.  Both the V and 05 have nice controlled bass, Cardas has control but not like the other two.  I definitely prefer the TE-05 and V in the bass department.  Can't pick which one I like more but the TE-05 might get the nod in bass.  

 

Vocals:  All three have nice vocals.  Can't really tell which one has is the most forward since all three are not recessed in any way.  Bass does protrude into the Cardas which gives more heft to the voices and adds a nice element to male vocals.  V's are in between the two and TE-05's are on the airer side which gives female vocals star treatment.  V's do well with both and I would give the nod to the V's for vocals followed by the TE-05 a close second.  Cardas still is strong on the vocals though.

 

Treble:  Cardas sounds more laid back than the other two but is just as detailed.  V's and TE-05's have really nice sparkly treble.  Can't tell which one extends more or less.  The TE-05's sound slightly thinner in treble but I don't hear this as being bad.  Both portray treble amongst the best I've heard.  Very detailed without a hint of harshness but the TE-05's get closer to that amount.  

 

All three do a great job of surrounding the music all around you.  The TE-05's seem bigger due to that really airy treble and is the least thick sounding of the three.  The V's can pick out all notes the best since it's tuned quite equally all around.  All three are really good in this department.  

 

My preferences are the V's and TE-05's of the three at this point.  The Cardas is still a keeper for me but will be used sparingly because of the thickness of the sound.  The bass of the TE-05's are absolutely amazing because it hits the low notes without any bleed and is strong.  V's are tight and has that mid-bass bump but not offending mid-bass.  Cardas just has big bass to my ears compared to the other two.  

 

 

Very nice review DannyBai. Thank you!  I'm also very impress with The Heaven V. Just very unique signature.

I'm not use to all this love. Appreciate it though. Much more deserving souls to be on the front page.
