The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1422

Ok, so these landed......

... courtesy of our beloved towel thrower. :)

 

Haven't listened to the H3s yet but 1st reaction to those Pistons, MAN ARE THEY WARM!!! :L3000:

 

Not at the level of the VSD1s for sure, maybe on par with those LG QB2s but........

 

They are alright, but a bit too warm for even this basshead.

 

Tyme to tips rolls these bad bois!!!

Okay so a PM on erji suggests that the W40s might indeed be using a different acoustic damper like I suspected. Although it's erji so it says less than one would expect. Another H-Fers also describes them as being a more consistently fitting W4. I don't think anyone who's tried them is denying that they (can) sound slightly different at this point. I think it's all coming together at this point. I'm eager to try them but alas us unfortunate folks residing in "Canned Land" are forced to endure a painfully irrelevant government holiday (Family Day) and therefore the stores are closed during my off-time this weekend.

 

It's a long shot but if anyone local wants to meet up and let me poke a few holes in their W40 nozzle this weekend, hit me up a PM.

****, are the ibuygou Pistons fake or is that still just a theory?

Guess that's a no go for me on the Pistons (ewww... warm nothx)
Even the HE-500 is a bit too warm for me 

Looking forward to the H3 impressions though :D (though I suspect that is a warm sounding earphone too)
Love muh detail and clarity

Someone on Xiaomi's forum stated that they were fake, but later retracted that statement and confirmed that they were indeed real. If that is not enough evidence I would suggest waiting on Bh's statement as he has ordered some directly from Xiaomi.

I suspect you'll find the H3's to be warm too but you will hear all those lovely details.  How are those tips?

Nah these H3s are not warm they are BOMBASTIC!!! WOW completely FLOORED. Now this is an audiophile basshead iem done sooooooooooooooooo right. FINALLY!!! :L3000:

 

The bass of these H3s is BIG/FULL/ SPACIOUS yet it still manages to have amazing clarity/ lushness in the mids along with an nicely extended but smooth non-fatiguing treble. AMAZING ATMOSPHERE AND OUTTA' HEAD SOUND.

 

Resolution is close to that of the ASG 2s but not quite as sweet sounding, but man....... 

 

This right here is a Totalphiles dream iem meng.

 

The Pistons in comparison has that slower/ more mellow type of "warm" bass which i don't really dig, that was the reason why i didn't really like those M200s THAT much despite all the praises for them. The Piston is what i would describe as "warm", these H3s on the other hand is BOMBASTIC with it, yet is not fatiguing unlike those damn thick and powerful lamo FXZ200s.

 

edit: on the tips front, using stock sony hybrids on these H3s for now. :ksc75smile:

Awesome! thanks for the impression SF, the XBA H3 is definitely on my wish list. I'll just have to wait for their prices to go down which will most likely be at the end of the year.

I'm sure that the H3's are phenomenal, but I do not believe that the bass is that much better than the M200's. You my friend, were using the wrong tips on the M200's :p

post #21326 of 32875

what tips are you guys using for the pistons?  I burned them in all day while I was at work.  Out of my Aune T1 and O2, I feel like it sounds hollow... not sure why but out of the HO of my DX50, it sounds fine. 

 

edit: I was using the smaller stock tips though, right now Im trying the large.

post #21327 of 32875

I'm using sony hybrids with them.

post #21328 of 32875

I was using the UE900 and TF10 tips with the Pistons.  Try any wide-bore tips.  

post #21329 of 32875
I use UE900 silicon on the H3. Now maybe you will confirm, sf, that as good as the DN-1000 is,t can't compete with the H3. By the way, this Ax-35 is improving rapidly. Mega details coming out of it. It loves the dx50.

Thanks SF, now I want to use them again!

 

They gathered quite a bit of dust, and I regret not using my favorite IEMS...(especially the ones that are #1 and pricey...damn, I'm a-jole to everything).

 

Thanks for the impressions sf, I'll go back to using iems now, the martins and re700s can't touch the h-3s and im-02s imo!
