Oh, considering I've been annoying everyone with shipping updates my 2nd pair are already in Australia. EMS don't muck around!

 

 

Yep, that's definitely fast! BTW, according to your sig, you must be getting a special "Hyrbid" version of these... tongue.gif

Cheeky. wink.gif I'll be back in a minute.

I'd love to talk more about the sound of H-100 though I can't go into detail without hearing them some more. rolleyes.gif

And Techno Kid hasn't been online in days so we can't change the thread title to H-100 (we need to remove the K)

I received both dynamic models D-100 and D-200 as well as the H-100. Mind you, I ordered (and paid for) all three as samples to see if they might make a nice addition to www.headsound.de's portfolio. Unfortunately, the B-100 seems to be out of production.

So far, I'm not all that impressed with the H-100 though. It sounds like my sample has THD and sibilance problems, it's a little bright and mids are thin-sounding for my personal taste. I'll have it burn in for a while to see if that helps.

There was no sibilance on my first pair that I can recall, it was actually something I noticed absent. Though that pair did have channel imbalance, Which I'm a little concerned about the QC on these..Hopefully those mids fill out a little after some burn in, others have reported a change. They're rather bright and thinned out a touch at higher volumes. Again channel imbalance only gives me a rough estimate.....

I hope QC on these isn't a true issue. Apart from you, H20Fidelity, anyone else here had QC problems with these? I hope you just got the random bad pair... I know the manufacturer will promptly replace a bad unit, but the problem for me is that we're buying them from South Korea...

 

sepinho, if you didn't already, try to let them burn in for a while before you make any final conclusions. It's been reported in this thread that they do change (and improve) after some time of use...

I'd say they need at least 60 hrs burn in and some eq going on to maximize their abilities.  But it's worth it.  When I first put them on I was like "What'd I do!?"  But after the burn in the sibilance goes away and the articulation/clarity goes up.  With mine it seemed like there was a period where the sibilance was gone but everything still sounded metallic and unnatural, that subsided as well.  Some-where around 60-80 hrs.

Oops, I hope I didn't give away any business secrets. It's a pretty straight-forward single-dynamic oomph-bass, warm in-ear. Nice, solid casing, using the same cable as the H-100 (which is nice, if you ask me). I've only tried it for five minutes so far, but I'll post more impression of all three earphones once I've had an opportunity to properly test them. I still have a Lasmex H-75 here on loan that I have to return next week and a prototype headphone that I have to return tomorrow. Too many headphones, not enough time (and/or ears..).

My second pair arrived today in three days yet again, there's no problem with them! (yay) It's the same sound I remember but even both sides This pair sounded fine out of the box unlike my previous experience. I think I just lucked out with that pair (it happens) Had a quick listen and burning them in. I've been using GR07 tips which tend to enhance the bass body a touch and take away some of the higher end. It's working out to be a nice balance.

I've found using Colorfly C3 brings mids and vocals forward a touch, not a huge amount but certainly brings them into an noticeable intimate zone. C3 is already a little mid centric so using this combination suits them well. I'm having the best results with my Cowon S9 though, mids fall back a touch (vocals mostly) but as Flysweep mentioned using his iphone4 there's a touch more mid bass body, not enough to spoil a presentation just a slight presence warming up the low end.

Bass on H-100 is quite fast, well textured and reaches low. Some of the nicest I've heard, makes GR07 MK2 low end sound a little over done compared with less speed. The best thing about this IEM being a Hybrid is everything's particularly well separated, you can completely forget about the word bass bleed. I'm really enjoying mine, it's not a signature or tone that will suit everyone I agree, but what it is... precise and rather delicate in presentation, detailing and air wins me over easily.

Excellent for ambient and chill sessions.

I've listened to them through all my pmp's (Sony S, Fuze, J3, GoGear Muse, Pantech Burst) and the ones they sounded the best are the J3 and Fuze but still not as much as I'd like.  The mids sound better but the over all sound is still just to thin for me and that's why I put them up for sale, they're a good IEM but the sound signature is not for me.

Damn dude, I'm absolutely loving mine. I spent five hours straight listening last night, when I woke up they were instantly back in my ears. biggrin.gif I know what you're saying about the mid range sounding thin but it's not something I call a concern. It sounds far clearer than the muffled recessed TF10 range, actually... these blow TF10 away completely. Plus I think they do EDM really well! lol I'm surprised you let them go in some ways. Sources certainly change how H-100 react, C3 brings mids forward, the whole signature becomes slightly mid centric.

Honestly after burn in, I don't even notice the mid range being recessed anymore like I did when they first went in my ears.  Fiona Apple and Crooked Still or Tim O'brien all sound right where they should.  And for Trentemoeller or Bonobo or stuff like that they just kill.  The sub-bass on these things is rediculous,  So DEEP and impactful. I dunno, they are really special for me!  THE PREMIUM EARPHONES OF SHINWOO!

That's exactly how I feel too, they blow me away, I'm coming from GR07 MK2, TF10, EX600, the detailing and micro detail is truly note worthy. I'm constantly hearing little whispers and samples that were usually over layered. I let mine burn in for 9 hours last night, when I put them in this morning I was like wow that has made a difference. Overall sound had tightened up and bass already showing more presence. The only area GR07 might have them beat is in vocal presentation and bite, but GR07 fall short in depth and dynamics which H-100 do overly well and as far as a "clear" sound is involved it's no competition for me with the others H-100 have them all beat.

They have my mark of premium approval, no two ways about it. smile.gif

Thanks to a very generous member, I'll get to hear the H-100 on Thursday. I'll post impressions on Saturday.
