no i do not :(

 

You may know i am a huge IEM collector reviewer:

 

http://www.inearspace.co.uk/inearspace/IEM_Round_Up.html

 

I have always 'overlooked' earbuds i guess. You may think i am idiot for saying so or what not but i think a lot of people do the same. Anyway blox seemed to be the best earbuds around so i decided to give reviewing one ago and was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review one.

 

I do not think a product as been this 'inspiring' since my first 'decent' IEM, the DBA-02 coming from the Beat pro right at the beginning of my audiophile journey some years ago. it really as opened up something new to me.

 

I am sitting here at 11.00pm on my computer listening through these out of my Objective 2 and D1 DAC in pure bliss. This is odd as i would normally go for some top tier IEMs or my HD580 when doing my chilling listening late at night (too late for analysing the quality and reviewing etc.) but this is not making me want to go any where else. 

 

Thinking that woo at blox said the TM7 is a superior earbud i think all you TM7 owners are very lucky people ;)

 

I think more people need to give the earbud a chance!

Right on......tm7 is superior. biggrin.gif....I also ordered the anv3 to see how they compare, also wish blox bring back the tm5.

Thanks for the additional impression.  Looking forward to more people's impressions.

To other Blox TM7 owners.  If you think the bass is lacking, try this tweak:  If you have the donut foam pads, put those on first and then the regular foam pads on top.  I tried it and the difference was quite significant.  I'm not sure if it's a better fir for me (I have small ears) or if the better sound is the result of the foam pad essentially being lifted off the earphone surface by the donut pad.  Whatever it is, I'm liking what I hear.  Others please give it a try and report what you hear.

Any one else receive the anv3 yet ?.....impressions ?

post #247 of 581

I got mine today and right out of the box they sound amazing. Very very clear, detailed and surprisingly a stronger bass then the TM7s, excellent sound stage and as of right now I have no complaints from the sound that comes from the ANV3.

 

But would of been nice if Blox could of made some minor changes to the ear bud shell as they look 100% like the M2C.

 

 

My advice don't wait as they are nearly all sold out.

Thanks! I did not really want to bother with the whole physical package and more just the sound and telling people that earbuds are too be taken seriously and this is a great start with the price etc.

That does look interesting, but often frequency response has little to do with how the earbuds actually sound. For example, I've got a pair of vintage Aiwa HP-D9 earbuds (sold in the early nineties). The frequency response is stated as 5-30 000 Hz, but the bass response is very weak (however highs are amazing and soundstage better than even the TM7 or Sennheiser MX980).
I've also got a pair of Audio Technica CM7, discontinued around 5-6 years ago, and the frequency response is stated as 10-45 000 Hz. The bass response is better than the Aiwas, but not as good as you would expect.
Finally, my pair of Panasonic RP HV 600 has got the worse bass response I've ever heard. There's just about no bass at all and even the bass aenemic Aiwa HP D2 sound like bass monsters compared to the Panasonic earbuds. Still the RP HV 600 have a frequency response @ 8-26 000 HZ.

Anyway, I'm an earbud fanatic and I'm always open to trying new earbuds. Ubiquo is a Korean company and the ES903 modell seems to be pretty good judging by Japanese reviews (I'm only intermediate at Japanese so I don't understand everything).
