The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1177

I thought these were made in China, but I have the Japanese version (front of the box in English but everything else is in Japanese). Yet, on the bottom of the box it says the Japanese version of the H3 was made in Thailand. Interesting. Sounding like a very high-end stereo system to my ears.

This sums up perfectly what I'm hearing.

I think these could very well be the best bass earphones on the planet.. Can't wait to try them out. I will own a pair. It is just a matter of time. Gotta pay the December bills first. Then it is on!

I happen to own IHIFI 812v2's little sister, the IHIFI 760. You could literally kill someone with a swift hit over their head.

It's that damn heavy. 


^ Man that's a chunky sister you got there, all yours meng, cuz i ain't no chubby chaser. ;)

 

This Brick sounds pretty sweet, though it has less power than i expected.

We are in trouble fellas! Those of us in this thread who like deep rich bass and great detailed vocals. And extended, yet non-harsh highs. BIG TROUBLE!! I still need to wrap my head around the XBA-H3 some more, but I was expecting quite worse than what I'm hearing. I can't say this is the heaviest earphone I've heard note-wise (it's definitely is 3-Dish and has weight in the sound, but I've heard other earphones with weightier notes in the 3-D realm), but the combination of weight and wide soundstage I will have to think hard about what I've heard to match it. Also, to be such a bassy earphone, this is one of the most detailed universals I have heard in vocals. And I do mean DETAILED vocals!! Sounds great to me, although some may think it's too much. The bass sounds a touch muddy to me (I went straight to the new Sony foam/silicon hybrids), but I do expect that to clear up with burn-in. The bass is enough to satisfy a basshead, but it's not in the far reaches of of being a basshead earphone. This is another full sounding earphone - like the ATH-IM70 - that is super rich and refined. Yes, much more refined than the IM70 (and I still love it's sound), and richly detailed. I can say right now this is what I dreamed for the EX1000 and EX600 to sound like in some sort of weird combination. The highs extend beautifully with none of that stabbing my eardrums with daggers sound. Lots of space around the instruments. Look this earphone, I think, will have too much bass for audiophiles, but will be perfect for audiophiles (like me) who love bass (if that makes sense). I'm using the X3 DAP, and I can say even right now this is the best Sony earphone I've ever heard! I still own the Sony XBA-4 (paid quite a bit more for it than I paid for the XBA-H3). The XBA-H3 absolutely destroys the XBA-4 to my  ears. Well done Sony! More solid impressions to come later, of course. Before you ask me what is the sound signature comparable too, I don't know. It sounds like a mixture of top tiers I've heard. Then it sounds uniquely like itself to me. I need to sort this signature out, but I like it. I initially was going to say the mids are recessed, but they aren't. There's just so much space between instruments. In case you're wondering, I'm digging this earphone already ... big time. 

Oh, as for fit. I had major problems with the fit of the EX-1000, EX-600, and 7550. All three felt heavy in my ears and tended to sag and feel like they wanted to pop out. The body of the H3  - I believe -  is bigger than the EX-1000, but somehow feel more comfortable and stable. I'm thinking this is because it's made with a light material (not the metals that made up the EX-600 and EX-1000) and a bit difference in the shape of it. Also, the new hybrid foam tips are holding it in place inside of my ears, so far so good. 

^ interesting........ :triportsad:

Dsnuts  and DannyBai are going to really hate me now. I thought the sound couldn't get any better (sans burn in) on the H3. Boy was I wrong! I was using the large Sony foam hybrids, which gives the earphone a nice rich sound, but I decided to throw on a pair of silicon UE900s. Oh boy! It makes that super-tweeter BA really sing without harshness and just gives the H3 an even wider and airier soundstage. Miles Davis' horn on So What is freakingly detailed and natural sounding. And it's BIG! So is Coltrane's tenor. The UE900 also takes some of the muddiness off of the bass (until it can get a good burn in). The sound seems even richer and more refined, and the mids are bit more forward with the UE900 tips.This is a great match indeed! Now I'm going to see what the Sony foam hybrids do for the IM70.

I have to have put these in my cart and removed it 10 times…do you have them? Can you give a quick (or not so quick, if you can) impression? Thanks
