The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1501

post #22501 of 26198

Sup guys,

 

Well, it looks like I'll be taking a plunge towards the XBA-H3. Can anyone guide me to where would be the best place to purchase these at? I see them on Amazon, but is there anywhere else I can get them for cheaper? I'm in the US...

 

Thanks

Awesome comparisons Eric. Spot on.

H3's can be bought from Adorama for $349. I haven't seen them in stock anywhere else for cheaper.

And the jvc fx850's are going for the same price on amazon japan. Which begs the question.....!

I did a quick search and it's $348-$350 everywhere (Amazon, Adorama, BHPhotovideo, Crutchfield)

That's a tough choice indeed.

Not yet but I just might by Friday as well. Resistance is failing.

I wonder if its cheaper for tenso if 3 or 4 are ordered at one time and then when they get here, ship via usps.

Cheaper, yes, because they can consolidate the shipping, but not a huge savings.....

I wish both the H3's and the FX850's were smaller. I like to use my iems a lot outside or at the gym, and I doubt that I would be able to do so with either one. I find lighter and smaller profile iems to be so much better for that. For instance, the vsd1's are so light that they stay in well, they do not stick out of my ears like bolts, and when not wearing them, I can leave them hanging from the shirt clip without hardly noticing them. All of my better sounding iems are huge and heavy monstrosities in comparison. So I'm waiting for one of you guys to discover something that sounds as good as the H3's and FX850's, but in smaller and lighter form factor. The AKG 3003's come to mind. The only problem is that they are $1300 lol. Edit: I just read that the 3003's don't have a replaceable cable. What were they thinking?

In case you were wondering, the H3 and the K3003 don't really sound anything alike except having a somewhat similar FR. Though the newer K3003 seem to haver less bass than what currently published measurements show.

I'd put the K300K bass at about the level of the EX1000 (see graph).

X2! Sheds more light than the more general impressions of those two phones and differentiates certain aspects nicely. Thanks!

Thanks vwinter. I'm mainly just venting. The K300K is far out of my price range at the moment. And the fact that it doesn't have replaceable cables would probably be a potential deal breaker for me as well. Can you get them recabled if the cable fails? If so, how much would that cost?

Oh whoops, forgot to comment on that. No replaceable cables cuz sexy wink.gifbiggrin.gif

AKG has been historically good at replacing sets which have cable issues as far as I've seen.

But, to directly answer your question, my friend asked the one of very few guys i know who would even attempt such a recable and he pretty much said he wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole haha. I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist of it.
