Well, now that my ear feels better, I fired up one of my favorite songs (due to the meaning of the song)
Precious time by the Maccabees has the best treble play I've heard (good to test the highs on the h-3s) and with the xba-h3s, the cymbals come to life! It's so soothing, yet clear enough that you can tell the amount of strength the band struck those cymbals.
The vocals are great in this recording, and the bass is wonderful. I even heard a tiny microdetail that I've never heard with the other iems! (didn't try on the im-02 yet).
Like the song, definitely quite strong treble, I'd argue maybe too strong. Cymbals really stand out, somewhat tizzy at time, but I did listen through a laptop, to a Vevo video, throuigh Monster Gratitudes, which tend to be tizzy themselves (especially early on, and mine just came a few days ago to replace my previous pair.). Do like this music, though, gotta look into the band some more.
