Nice one eke, considering the price we can get them from the manufacturer they're a great deal, I would say easily worth $200+ as has been mentioned previously. I don't see a problem with these competing with IEM's up to $300 price range. Your opinion next to GR07 will be interesting indeed. biggrin.gif


This album on bandcamp by Kalya Scintilla is truly amazing for $6.50. It sounds particularly good with H-100. Shows off their separation and timbre well.

I'm guessing you emailed them directly and asked for an invoice? Had a look at their site but the Flash on my Linux is giving me grief again. What sort of payment options?  I'll go try again see what I can find out.

I actually bought mine through ebay before we found about ordering directly.

Use this email (this is the manufacturer email address): swp@swpshinwoo.com

Tell them you're interested in buying a pair. They should get back to you within a few hours or so, as the member who represents them mentioned earlier here, it's direct from ShinWoo and cheaper then using ebay.

thanks, and from what i can tell the only difference with the K and R models is the aesthetics ?( amount of rings and roughed areas )  "Knurl" vs "Ring"

Yes, the whole series is actually called H-100, the letters on the end only represent colour and ring variations of the housing.

This explains pretty well.

I might not like the H-100 all that much but I think their B-100 sound quite good and they only cost like $25.  They sound better than the other Siren based IEM's I've heard like the R-20 and A151, they have a more balanced sound a just a touch more sparkle in the highs.

I'm getting my Heri 4ai today, I'll give a good comparison later when I get it.  I'm assuming from people's descriptions the sound of these to phones will be fairly close in signiture.

How much cheaper is it than using eBay?

I can't promise anything but a member has contacted them and received an offer of $120 with included EMS shipping for H-100 any colour they choose, that's $57 cheaper than ebay. I'm not sure if this was a one time offer or a standard price they will sell them via emailing the manufacturer directly. Remembering the ebay sale comes with free B-100 armature as well. ShinWoo only offered the Hybrid. But if anyone does contact them please be patient as it's taking 24 hours to receive replies.

That was me and the offer was 117 Eur which is a bit more in USD. I think that's the standard price - if you check http://www.t-peos.co.kr/ and click one of the H100 models, there's a number "140,000 원". That' might be the price in South Korean Won, which is about 100 Eur. Sounds like that price without shipping.

 

Anyway since the Rock-it R50 didn't turn out as good as I hoped, I'm getting one of these.

Yeah that sounds about right. The member who was offered that amount ($120) in my above post (wasn't you) also goes by Euro currency.

117.00 EUR = 151.00 USD.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. so it's looking to be $151.00 US shipped? Which is $27 cheaper then ebay (minus the B-100)

That's an excellent deal for this kind of sound.

Do I just email them regarding the H-100? And should be able to get it cheaper than on eBay?

 

And how well do these compare to the W3?

I continue to marvel at the transparency, clarity, and detail these phones possess.  It's simply outstanding.. and incredibly addictive to listen to.  As far as comparisons to the GR07 MKII.. where the GR07 is smooth in texture and soft in tone, the H-100 is crisper in texture & more vibrant in tone.  There's been some talk about the vocal presentation..  The smooth feel of the GR07 might seem more inviting for vocal listneing.. but when it comes to detail, clarity, and depth.. the H-100 houses the GR07.  Listen to well recorded vocal tracks and they'll have an ethereal quality to them with the H-100.. as they sound naturally separated from the surrounding instruments with amazing precision.  The black background the H-100 have allows one to pick up seemingly every nuance and detail, again, in a natural manner.  There's a depth to the H-100' sound that the GR07 is simply incapable of matching.  The H-100 will sound a bit 'cooler' in comparison.. but less colored and more accurate, too.. IMO.

 

The bass is really something special.  It extends deeeeep.. and quite effortlessly, too.  No bloat whatsoever.  Listen to a track with a well recorded drum kick.. for example, Larry Carlton's, "Sunrise" (from "The Paris Concert" album).. and you'll -clearly- hear the dimensionality the kick possesses as well as seemingly feel the air it pushes.  It's pretty cool.  Listening to well recorded jazz tracks which feature loping, upright bass lines, I sense excellent clarity and speed.. no midbass boost to smear the accuracy or hide the nuances of busy strings.

 

I've spoke plenty about the treble.. the fact I proclaim it to equal or exceed the RE272 is all that needs to be said.  I feel the H-100's treble is better than the DBA-02's treble.. the H-100's treble boasts better depth, control, and texture.  Despite the treble being output by a BA.. it sounds incredibly natural in tone & decay like what I've come to hear from some fine dynamic drivers.. while possessing all the speed a BA affords.

 

I hooked up the H-100 to my tube-buffered DAC (TubeDAC-11) tonight and the H-100 was pure joy to listen to.  The delicate (midbass) warmth, hypnotic midrange liquidity, and smooth treble the Zaerix 7DJ8 features felt like a match made in heaven with the H-100.

Here's some interesting background info.

 

Out of curiosity, I've searched for the person who's answering the emails: Sunggoo,Kwon (I can't tell which is the first name, please advise). Well a Korean person of the same name has a patent for an Endoscope. I wonder if that's the same person and also what the heck is that patent about? I don't understand two words of it biggrin.gif

 

At first I thought it's about a stethoscope.
