Forever is right. i have e mailed them twice for info re delivery progress but no response.
question: how is the H3 sound signature different from the "older AT tuning" i loved the sound of my ath ckm99
except for the treble harshness...wonder if the ckm1000 cured that or not....
Nope seem to be using the same tuning but a more spacious sound perhaps. It is the older AT tuning so they put a premium on treble peaks for female vocals and such and took treble extension literally. Again I think the FOstex phones would be a more safer choice for the same amount of money but then again people seem to like them CKM1000s in Japan..With newer phones out it is kind of a gamble to try out older flagships. Newer tuning seems to get better and better as well as the tech behind them.
H3 is a prime example. The H3 is a spacious large sound with great integration of drivers which leads to great integration of sound. It does so many things right and is easy to listen to with a sound tuning that is more leaning toward consumer music lover profile than and analytical audiophile, but with a technical merit to have all the goodness of why we like a big spacious sound. There is no filler in the sound and I think that is the key to a nicer bigger sound for iems. Especially when driven correct on some power the H3 don't sound like an earphone. It is large and in charge just like my SRH1540 or my X1 in sound. Very satisfying on an amp..
Extension just right on both ends with all the good stuff in spades in the middle. Detail of BAs yet with the smoothness of dynamics.. These are how hybrids should sound like.
