OOps, sorry. I meant to address jant71.

 

I'm sure it will make a difference as I've found that cables can do that, but I'm satisfied my friend. Won't say I won't, but not anytime soon, and not at that price. I bought a BTG silver plated cable for my 1964 EARS V6 (beautiful cable), and it didn't cost over a $100, so I'm not spending that for an AT cable.

But as for normal set of cans or any on/over ears, I do like those HP50s and the Mikros as I said, but two completely different ranges of price. Maybe the Mikros for now and upgrade later?

 

 

That sounds smart to me. You don't know how long the Mikros will be around.

@ericp10 Did you get to try the Om IEP? My intitial impressions are something along the lines of "and they said the IM70 had a lot of bass."

No I haven't Vain. I need that price to come down some and then I might look at it.

Yeah, I managed to score this pair for a little under $100, brand new, shipped on eBay. Due to some reviews I was actually kind-of worried that it wouldn't have that bass hit of some of my other headphones, but it's got bass in droves. I'm really hoping that if I leave it for a couple hours the bass will calm down because right now it's like a kid at Walmart. It doesn't really 'overshadow' the mid-range, but you can definitely tell it's creepin. On another ... I love the way Violin's sound on this. So I'm calling a V that hopefully turns into a slight U.

haha seriously. Nothing I have owned rivals it.  That case is very nice as well.  I havent had the HD800 in years so I may not be the best to compare it but off of memory, I could see that comparsion being made.

Hey guys, I was thinking about getting the IM70 from accesorryjack for around 105USD shipped, but the problem is they don't seem to ship to my country (even though they ship to every bordering one). Then I noticed I could buy the XBA-H3s here for around 190USD shipped with a 2 year warranty. I guess that's a pretty great price, right? My question is though, are the H3s worth the price difference? The H1s cost around 100USD here, so they are also an option. I'm currently using the MH1C and I would really want something noticeably better. Thanks for any advice.

Incoming Fanboying from Eric. I'll go ahead and say, yeah.

please provide a lin for that H3 for 190$. I'm sure most of us will be very grateful...

Same. I don't use the case at all though since I'm leery of the square shape it forces upon the cable when you wind it. Anyhow, I'm curious but, what is the serial number of your pair and where were they made?

Designed and Engineered in Austria. Made in China, serial 12249.  I'm assuming the earlier models were made in Austria? 

 

That being said, they look flawless and amazing.

Yeah. I had two myself. The first was 1783 I believe, and the second is 8,8XX or so. Both were made in Austria. I'm kinda curious where the cutoff point was before they moved production to China. My 8,000+ model sounds different compared to the pre-2000 model

Interesting.  Maybe I'll have to send you these so you can compare them all, 1xxx, 8xxx, 12xxx
