For a $350 IEM, with hybrid tech, I expected them to rate at least above those IEM's, and give me some WOW factor, but not measure slightly above the RE-400 and UE 900. I can get the UE 900 for $280-300, the RE-400 for $80-100, and actually pay less for the AX-60. I hope they blow your mind though when they arrive? eric seems to be in love with them? Let me know how they truly rate when you get them?

What innerfidelity measurements?

And how do they measure "below" any of those other IEMs?

I just don't know where you're coming from on these statements.

He's right.

 

Take a look here at the before and after response applied by Accudio.

http://en.goldenears.net/26285

 

The actual response is very colored, but the EQ corrected response looks fantastic. At $300+, that blue corrected line should have been the natural response.

 

As a stickler for flat response, that graph killed any idea of me purchasing it at its current price as well. Maybe if it hits $99 someday I'd give it a go.

Good luck. It's not going to happen.

I'll stick with my OM Audio, my DUNU, my UE 700, my Piston, and my Kavi B3. I'm sure with all of them, they can cover the basses provided from a $350.00 IEM.

Exactly :)

 

I'd rather put the money toward the NAD VISO HP50 or the upcoming Hifiman sets.

post #18411 of 32858

i'm curious, but is anybody going to take the plunge on the new budget dual drivers from astrotec, the ax30/ax35? they're on sale on ugomark right now for $51. i would have thought someone in this thread would have jumped on them by now.

Fostex In February I heard

I've owned all of those earphones. Don't believe the hype on that measurement stuff. You guys know me. I've been here for awhile. Those who have bought base on my impressions have pretty much agreed I've been spot on in describing the sound I've heard. The h3 handily beats all of those earphones listed. Don't miss out on something great by taking third hand information from people who haven't heard the products, but who freely quote what they've heard someone else say or state, then giving their opinion about whether the product is any good or not. This is about people who do this in general and is not directed to anyone in particular. I know we have some sensitive new members who think every comment is about them. Anyway, have the H3 in my ears now. It's fantastic! Feel free to do a search if you are interested in some of my impressions of it.

IEMagnet01, that's a pretty impressive line up there with all those phones.

I hear you. So many great phones to purchase out there.

The funny thing is the raw graph underneath the compensated one. The golden ears target has a huge boost in the upper mids, as well as lifted sub-bass. Look at the uncompensated graphs and the H3 looks like a normal bass-oriented phone.

 

Even then, these graphs don't have any bearing on the technical performance of the h3, they simply tell you the amplitudes of the frequencies.

 

Either way, the H3 and EX100 are both about to be on their way to me from the land where the hills alive with the sound of music. I'm excited to finally hear them for myself.

I got a pair on order as well. Can't wait to hear the H3s..

post #18418 of 32858
I'm sure the H3 does kick ass, but measurements are not opinions. There is nothing subjective about a measured response. How it sounds is where everything is subjective.

Based on the measurements, for someone like me that likes a flat response it just doesn't make sense to take that risk, unless I heard it first on a tour or from someone else and really enjoyed it.

Without impressions, most of us would never know how great some of these are. It's a huge benefit to everyone (and a nightmare to wallets everywhere)

Thanks. Looking forward to having them all come in pretty much at once. Gonna be busy there for a bit with A/B and comparisons. but I'm also waiting for the X3 to arrive, because I think the source will also make a huge difference too.

I'm sure they are good. I bought the M200 solely based on your endorsement, and aside from QC, sonically they were awesome, as you said they would be. As I'm sure the DUNU will be better than the M200 as well.
