Of course one would have to trim those the Sony's connectors protrusions to test that theory. Also thinking those newer fatter looking Fostex connectors might not fit on the Sony now either without some trimming maybe.

 

Any difference when looking side by side down into the connectors of the SE and Fostex cables? Pin difference etc. that could explain the cutting out and maybe give something to look out for.

 

I remember yesterday, Gilly87, talking about moving to universal MMCX being better than proprietary. Nothing wrong with AT's connector(no cut out and dirt/moisture static noise issues) and at least if you buy an AT cable you know it will work right. :biggrin:

When I get home, I'll take a picture of the Oyaide, Fostex and the Sony cables.  I bought the Oyaide cable over the boutique cables thinking it would have better ergonomics but I was wrong.  The Oyaide cable is stiff with a hard plastic covering and feels sort of cheap although quite thick.

More bass and less harshness than FXT90. More subbass than the IM50, and also slightly brighter. Quite quick decay in the bass keeps it under control.

Unlikely.

The original Havi Pro is back!!!

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=36052562138

 

This time, the box has a marking to distinguish it. SWEET!

 

This is the kick ass version that I love. Like it says, works best with an amp, but most head-fi'ers have that covered.

Okay, you have my interest. What's the overall sound signature, besides being "for audiophiles", and how can I get one as an American?

Oh crap, that's pretty cool.  I wouldn't have imagined.  Thanks for pointing that out.  :beerchug:

 

Here are some pics of the H3, Oyaide and TE-05's connectors.

Cool! Hardly ever go to the first page and read the headlines. Jude also with the TE-05 love...http://www.head-fi.org/a/2013-head-fi-winter-gift-guide-in-ear-headphones#user_fostex_te-05

 

Danny that Oyaide connector does look slightly different and though it fits probably the contact points are off so it cuts out. Does it work okay on the H3 or the same thing?

I should have my H3 back tomorrow or Friday to find out and I'll report back.

Danny, how does the cable feel? Looks pretty thin compared to the others, which could influence reliability.

 

Also, will those connectors fit the UE900's smartphone cable?

Congrats on the front post danny! That's three headfiers on the thread that I know of so far! (Since I know zelda has been here quite a few times as well).

The cable seems to be the weakest part of the earphone and reminds me of some Meelectronics earphone cables. But, it doesn't seem too bad in build and seems fairly durable.

I believe it's the same connectors as the UE900's but the housing could be the issue to get a proper fit. I think the Oyaide cable advertises as fitting the Shure's and UE900's too.

I think maybe it's because the PHVI is generally a bit more expensive than most of the gear here in the discovery thread. I did have them for a month and they sounded and looked absolutely amazing though. Just sold them a few days ago because I couldn't deal with the comfort issues.
