Generally like TSX, large, the ones I had didn't fit (100 200,500). Happened to find some T400 in my pile,fit on the nozzle. Must have found them clearance somewhere, size not marked, but I suspect they're mediums. Listening now, definitely better than the stock, bass more defined, would like to try large TSX but I'll have to live with these until I can order more. Actually pretty good, check em out some more, maybe leave it as is. Compare to my oth new stuff at some point. CONCERT TOMORROW!!!

Maybe I have the TSX-500 then because they didn't fit. I'll stop by Target and see if they have any.

Just to keep the thread off topic, here's a couple of mine from last summer (Nikon V1). Well, to keep it slightly on topic, I would have been listening to my VSD1's through my clip zip while taking both shots (one on bike, and one in kayak) :smile:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

^ There is NO such thing as "off topic" here, so spazz all you want about them I CAME..............RAs. ;)

 

Meng you don't gots to rub it in ya' know be biking and kayaking AND still snap shots like it belongs in magz photo shoots.

 

Multi.............

It's one of the best sensors in the world in a compact camera. The resolution is better than a 5D MKIII. Here are the pics I took with its predecessor:

































Wow, I would never have guessed those came out of the Sigma. Very nice.

It does sadden me though that that new sigma whole camera is cheaper than what this currently on sale lens I'm eyeballing retails for frown.gif

Also speaking of Eke, the man speaks the truth. The H3 is no joke. Tape mod in place, it's veeeery good. Like reaaaally very good.

Here's the thing about the H3 IMO, without the tape mod, there is just too much dynamic driver in there throwing off a delicate balance of a coherent sound. With the tape mod in place, it balances it out a bit and let's you really hear what both the BAs and the Dynamic can really do. And they are both veeeeerrry good.

Here's the other thing about the H3, also IMO. The tonality is off. BUT, it's so evenly off from top to bottom that it still sucks you into it's flow and can suspend disbelief thinking it sound real and fine.

To nitpick, it has a bit of dullness in the lower mids and a bit of a lack of sizzle on cymbals. But it all falls in well enough with it's tonality that it barely stands out. (Assume anything I say has tape mod in place, as things are just worse all around without it).

The H3 and Bear McCreary were made for each other btw.

As for the H3, told you so. At $350 and below, it's easily the best deal in top-tierdom.

I tried the tape mod but couldn't really hear any differences (I mean very little differences if any). The bass in my H3 had settled down substantially without tape mod. I still find this IEM sublime!

Yea it's possible that the bass settles down not needing the mod, but it's odd that you don't hear a difference. Even with bass that has already dropped several dB through it's own devices, the mod should still have an effect because you are physically altering the acoustic properties of the system.

It's possible that your pinhole was too big? Even a slightly too big pinhole can apparently largely negate the effect of the mod.

It is a great IEM.

Possible, I guess. I prefer it without the mod though (regarding H3).

 

 

Waynes world I can't remember if you asked me on this thread or somewhere else about how the HP5 compares to the On1. 

 

On1: better deeper bass; still fantastic mids with an overall more natural sound (I think that wood helps).

 

HP50: wider soundstage, more realistic vocals, fantastic head stage; and maybe better highs by a little bit.

 

In the end both are different sound signatures and don't negate each other. Both are wonderful headphones. I do find the HP50 more comfortable (being over ear).

Yea. That's a whole different story. A lot of people are gonna love these, and to have an easily performed tuning choice is just icing on the cake.
