Myth busted
post #1113 of 1162

It was me who claimed the change in sound every after few minutes of constant play time with my XBA 3; and i still stand by my claim.

Like I said in my previous post, my pair could be an isolated issue and it is a known fact that temperature changes do affect Balanced Armature's performance.

I do commend @spurxiii for taking the risk of his experiment but that doesn't change how I experience sound with my XBA 3.

 

Cheers!

Maybe my ears aren't that sensitive so I really can't pick out those differences. I still might try the freezer to see but it may really put the phones in jeopardy. I have too many phones anyway, gives me an excuse to buy another one I guess

Lol yes I'll be giving them to a mate who recently lost his Klipschs IEMs. I thought I'd sell them these XBA3s but I only got them for $50 so he can have them.

He had a quick listen and he was like, these are $50??? Let me give it to you now. I told him I needed to do a little experiment first. He doesn't know yet I'm not going to take his money

lol,,,actually after s4 everything sounds clear(comparable price to s4or higher).

 

and xba-3 apart from metallic treble has fantastic details.

 

i heard this from my friend who got these for 125$ and i didn't even experience the metallic treble!!

 

i was gonna get these but i made a mistake with xba h1 which i had to rectify later on when i got gr07 mk2 after returning these and getting walkman e474 instead.h1 were just poor,thats how i would put them.

post #1121 of 1162

should i get them for 70$ with 1 year warranty??

For those who want to own the UETF 10 and compare to your XBA 3/30, this is your chance to get in on the fun!

Does anyone know of an IEM that's similar to XBA-3iP's performance and capability, has the control functions, but works for Android phones?
I'm getting an Android phone and the XBA-3iP's controls won't work for it. I need to find a good replacement...

The KEF M200 is definitely a possibility, and the Xiaomi Piston 2.0 gold is a very high performance beryllium driver with android functionality for what amounts to two sawbucks.
