The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1189

post #17821 of 32862

I ended up buying the TDK BA200 for $70.00 with free shipping. I just keep seeing this IEM ranked really high on many head-fier's lists, and I need a dual BA to replace my now dying UE 700 dual BA. Hopefully they are as good as my UE 700, and will be a good BA compliment to my UE TF10 and KEF M200

Yeah, the AD900X's really sound great through an amp such as the E11 or E12.

I was on Amazon the other day and noticed that the Denon Urban Raver AH-C300's were down to $89 from over $200 so I bit since it has two 11.5mm drivers in each earpiece.  I received them the other day.  The packaging is in the premier range and comes with ear hooks just like what Bose uses and a good deal of nice tips.  I've had some time listening to them for the past couple of days and it's not bad.  It's got loads of bass but it's actually quite controlled.  The ear hooks aren't necessary since it fits just fine without them.  It's a massive earphone though.  Think of the CKS1000's but thicker.  Anyway, not a bad purchase and it really doesn't sound all that bad until I put in a new pair I just received today.  Eric has been impressed by these for the past week or so and when I read his posts, I couldn't resist.  I've had them in my ears non-stop for the past 7 hours and it's incredible.  The Sony XBA-H3 is the new flagship of the Sony earphones.  Blows away the EX1000, XBA-40, XB90EX and so on.  I've been comparing to the XBA-40's since that's been one of my favorite IEM's for a long time.  The H3 makes them sound tinny and now I finally hear what some have complained about the old XBA line.  The H3 has that 90EX bass but adds a bit of mid-bass flavor to even it out some.  The vocals are more upfront than the XBA-40's and sound much more natural.  Treble can't even be compared to the XBA-40's and especially the EX1000's.  It's smooth and the clarity is there.  Just because it doesn't extend to the harshness of some earphones (EX1000) doesn't mean it isn't clear and less detailed.  The one of the biggest advantages I hear in the H3 is the positioning of the instruments.  It's superb.  Vocals are close and clear, instruments are positioned around the vocals in every direction.  It's a big sound like many other earphones I've heard before but it's the positioning that's more accurate which makes for an even more immersive, musical listen like not too many other earphones in this thread or many others I've heard before.  To think that the EX1000's were going for $500 plus not that long ago and these are $350 starting price and it'll go down in soon enough.  The sound is not gonna be for everyone but for those who like big dynamic bass (many of us know how that 16mm Sony bass sounds) and add an armature driver for the midrange and another for the tweeter which corrected the issues from the older series and we have a winner on our hands.  This is the new Sony flagship earphone and I love it.  The H1 was good but the H3 blows it out of the water.

Hyped!!

My KEF's blow away any of the hybrids I've tried, so I'm staying away from the hybrids for now, until they come out with better ones, or the price comes down on the DUNU's or the Sony's.

KEF's are no joke and are definitely awesome so that's a good choice.

Congrats DannyBai, finally someone whose ears I trust knows what I've been hearing! Hyped indeed! Your turn Dsnuts, Wayne's world and sf. IEMagnet01, truly the M200 is a great earphone. No need telling you the H3 is better. It is, but one would do just fine stoping there with the M200.

Well Eric, I've wanted it since I heard about it but didn't need it until you heard it. I trust your ears and I'm really happy I have it. Cheers my friend!

3 of them, and I just ordered the Xiaomi Piston 2.0 Gold! $20.00 with shipping. I'm intrigued by the Beryllium driver, so no matter what, It's a good buy. With my TDK BA-200, Samsung HS-330, and Xiaomi Piston, I've used up all my Christmas $$. I'm broke. :)

Awesome H3 impressions Danny! I was already hyped on them due to Eric's impressions. Now? Oh oh!
