BTW, can you compare the bass quantity and quality to your GR07 MK2?

That said, since I wrote that, I think this is capable of reaching further down and delivering more bass than the GR07 when required, but on a neutral source such as the the Clip Zip with a flat EQ, it is about the same.

 

I think I mentioned in my impressions/review, the HY3 is highly amenable to EQ. It is generally neutral sounding and smooth, when left alone, but responds extremely well to any sort of EQ, with you being able to lift or lower any part of the sound spectrum to suit your listening tastes. It's not at all like an Ety E4R-S for instance which is all about clarity and definition. The HY3 is all about smoothness and neutral sounds that you can EQ to your taste, but the dynamic driver in it gives it that bass reach (when you need it) that BA's sometimes lack.

The new version HY3 sounds wonderful! I guess I can save up some money since they're out of stock...

Since the whole cable and out of stock issue, has anyone received any order updates?  It has been 3 weeks since my order has been on electronic assembly, and 4 weeks since it was started.  I'm going to email Phil to see if he has anything, but I want to see if anyone else has this problem.

Just want to share some more HY3 love with you all...

 

Shpongle - 'Are You Shpongled' album. 320k mp3. Absolutely glorious on a flat EQ through the HY3 and a Clip Zip as a source.

 

The layered synths are beautiful, the bass rumbles when it needs too, the pan pipes drift across the music. Soundstage good, separation good, I am drifting in a sea of chilled serenity while writing a report for work. 

 

All is well, nothing to see here, other than a chilled hippy in musicland cool.gif

If you are a Shpongle fan, then you will know how well mastered their albums are. I've just been listening to their 'God Particle' EP and there was a whole universe of atoms drifting around my head :-)

Nice update, the purple carbon fiber looks cool.

Just received another update, and my order is now at final finishing!  I'm looking forward to getting my Flex Twin BA now!

Nope, never heard Shpongle.  Prog fan though if that means anything!

UK psybient music at its best imho :-)

 

It has just been several hours of musical bliss, where source, headphones and music choice all came together in the right way and aural nirvana was achieved :-)

Give it a go. They are a UK Psybient (psychadelic-ambient) outfit. Lots of layered synths with organic sounds thrown in and interesting bass patterns and drums. They also master their recordings very well and make extensive use of panning and "moving" instrument locations. They are absolutely mind boggling to listen to on a pair of open cans, but fair very well indeed with Cosmic Ears offerings too L3000.gif

Hi guys

 

nothing to do really with CE but also like shpongle a lot, used to listen to all their work (psichedelic trance genre) in my car hifi setup (was stolen now trying to rebuild it - they where gentle, did not take the isolated door panels nor the cables though lol)

Don´t even get me started on infected mushroom from Israel lol)

 

On shpongle I´d also recommend the cd "tales of the inexpressible" and particularly because of the eco separation of channels the theme "my head feels like a frisbee" (hehe) properly mastered in wav/flac quality of course
