I see it differently. I see it that marketing has convinced you the Gratitude is worth $300, when it really is just a very good $60 earphone.

Lo. Anything but my friend. I have listened to many earphones in the under $100 range as well as many in the $200-500 range. Although we have more choices than ever for iem in the mid-fi bracket, the Gratitude has garnered much praise for good reason. Never said I thought it was worth $300..............but certainly far outperforms its current $60 dump price. I put it up against my E530 (no contest except the mids) and KEF M200 (right up there). It's a great phone that has a very enjoyable sound sig for on the move but detailed enough to scale up some with better better equipment. As usual, it still all comes down to personal preference.beerchug.gif

Yes, I got a pair yesterday and have shared a few very cursory impressions.

Interesting. I skipped the Gratitudes as Dsnuts was saying it was an upgrade to the CKN70. Also, the C300 has copious amounts of bass- is it comparable? I already own both of those but the audition price is so cheap it's hard to keep off my radar :D

I bought the C300's at the $89 price and found them ok and possibly worth that price. The bass is huge but controlled quite well. The Gratitudes bass is miles ahead though. Vocals aren't too recessed with that big bass On the C300's. Treble is a bit grainy but not sibilant. Housing is monstrous but comfortable. Cable is top notch and overall build is really good. I didn't mind the sound, especially with hip hop. There's good amount of mid-bass there. I say if you want a more aggressive big bold sound, then shoot for the C300's. Competes well with many in that price range. If you like a sweeter sound that still gives you good amount of treble, then Gratitudes. Not sure if either is an upgrade to the CKN70's though.

No idea about those C300s saweee. :  (
+1 on the bassos. Definitely a direct upgrade from Mh1. Astrotec ax35 may also be a worthy contender.

Ahh, okay. I haven't tried an IEM with such an abundance of bass that still had good treble and a midrange that wasn't recessed...I guess it's safe to say I can scratch the Gratitudes from my bassophile short list.

it's obviously a crusty frozen and "choco" smiley waffle cake!

I ended up switching cables and happy to report that the Oyaide SE cable works perfectly on the H3's.  I believe it brings out some treble too but I'll have to burn the cable in some more and recheck them.  The Onkyo cable works on the TE-05's but really couldn't tell an immediate difference in sound.

Maybe she's just checking to see if it's real gold, rather than a frozen Goldschlager puck. You never know with those Russians.
