But when you can spend 3 hours doing nother but sit in a shop to listen to them one-by-one, you start to remember the best of each phones and imagine the right phone will have ALL these traits you liked and start heading down this bottomless hole....... for the longest of time I held off joinng HF trying to avoid the upgradetitis but it is furtile. Might as well come here to share.... LOL

I only spent HK$25 (on shrinking tubes) that day even though I've auditioned 4 top notch Fitear models.  Highly self restraint.

I understand that people are often considering IEMs within the same price range, so I don't discount the value of competitor shoot-outs.  The problem is that you can sometimes end up comparing differences that are so small that they end up appearing more significant to the reader than they are in real life. 

 

i agree with you but i believe that comparables must be comparable.

 

if you ask me to choose between H200 and 1Plus2 guess what would be my choice? H200 is not even close to 1Plus2 in sonic excellence...

but considering price restraint i find H200 to be amazing value and actually this IEM also has a very nice element of fun sound.

 

same applies to C3 and RWAK.

 

i also seen many people in forums being pissed when someone logs in and begins to pontificate how a 100$ DAP beats Ibasso DX100, i think you can find enough such posts. so happens not everyone agrees to such comparisons.

 

now for the sake of fun lets take cars, you have to compare the same way between BMW7 and MiniCooper S? which one is better?

you welcome to do it like you would do for H200 and 1Plus2 wink.gif

and by the way price difference between MiniC S and BMW7 will be less than between H200 and 1Plus2 tongue.gif

 

yes, for me both are excellent IEMs for their price, however there is no comparison if you ask me to choose only one.

 

seriously comparing H200 to 1Plus2 the issue i would concentrate is which sonic virtues on H200 make it stand out to make it comparable to excellent but expensive IEM, not necessarily has to be 1Plus2. this is quite easy logic for me.

If jh13 had some more mid/upper bass I would probably rate it above 90~
The resolution and details are amazing (a bit better than jh16 fp) with great smoothness~ but on some songs, I always feel the bass isn't in coherence with the rest of the spectrum, giving me this incomplete presentation.I would love a jh audio product that has the bass capacity between 13 and 16. Maybe jh14.5?tongue.gif

It may be break on your pair but I clearly wouldn't want any more than it already has on mine. Viva La difference.

Easy to agree that the 1+2 competes with top CIEMs and is the best universal we've heard.

Here's a pic of my new babies...

 

 

And yes, that's a new stock silver cable with similar ergonomics as the new silver/gold. regular_smile%20.gif

Wow! It seems much improved indeed. The cable no longer seems like an invitation to hang one's self.

eke, congrats, now you have a beauty but beware, if you have a wife or a girlfriend she will soon get jelaous about you spending more time with your new toy. i am worried that my wife will buy me a paid visit to shrink for my next birthday after she stopped counting all gear i was receiving in the last two months and of course little IEMs take the blame for that she loses her husband from time to time :-D

Oh hey. We can totally be 1P2 bros. I just wish I had scored a pair with red and blue shells. Looks very cool

I'll be interested to hear what you think of them when you get some time with your pair. What color are yours?

post #2861 of 5600
Both shells, candy red. I love the red/blue set up though to denote which is left/right. I didn't have a choice in the matter though since I traded my 334 for the 1P2. Mine's packin the Silver/Gold cable. I wouldn't have hopped on the 1P2 bandwagon if not for Lee passin the ad along, I figured the fancy pants cable would make for a more appealing value proposition should I feel the need to resell

The cable will improve the sound even further over the stock silver cable. You'll lose warmth though but depending on your sources and preference this may be more to your liking anyways :).

As I stated on the AK120 thread, as I expected, the AK120 with 1.00 and 1Plus2 are a great pairing (I am using new Silver Gold Cable).

I put some condoms on the mini usb port to avoid contamination by 1.21 firmware.
