T-PEOS H-200 - new triple hybrid IEM - Appreciation thread - Page 152

post #2266 of 2552
Even though I own my second RDB+ v1, I'm having a ball amping H-200 from IHIFI 760 line out into C&C BH, really fun and involving, even though it doesn't have the absolute resolution of RDB it's darn right fun. BH and H-200 sit really well together and this new 760 is treating them something special. I believe it's called, synergy.

mate, yes, H200 is more intimate and rounded sounding IEM, V1 is more aggressively revealing with a darn huge stage.

today i used Cowon S9 and frankly speaking if not knowing how RWAK or Colorfly DAPs can sound i believe many people will be happy to have this combo.

 

what surprises me is i want them all and could not decide if sell V1 or H200 but after today's audition i took the decision to keep them both. ;)

Haha, you're always deciding whether to sell them and you never do Gintaras, been going on for months. I might of told you my new RDB mini sound completely different to my old pair of V1 better detail, higher resolution, the expansive stage is still present like before, but there's no doubt this pair have hotter treble leaning much towards your very early descriptions in this thread and no doubt superior to my old pair and easily above H-200, again like you described. And as we know Rhapsodio that's very easy to believe. wink.gif

I'm a bit behind on your 760 exploits, but how does the 760/BH/H200 compare to the C3/BH/H200 combo?

Glad to hear you guys still loving your H200's just as much as I do. Currently playing around with my xba3 to perfect my filter mod but every time I plug in the H200, immediately I hear how far behind the xba3 is in all aspects. Using the iPod touch 5th gen + C5 combo. I'm expecting the SA UD110 dac very soon and will report back how it affects the H200 sound.

Well, you're dealing with a true line out rather than amping from C3 headphone jack which is considered double amping, and although I agree with ClieOS' post here I still take the preferred option if possible. As we know C3's kind of limited by it's output power so while BH amp helps back that up the 760 pushes a much stronger signal to the amp. What you end up with is better refinement, bigger bass, I've not quite heard bass come out of H-200 like this before, it's big bad and nasty reaching deep, really 'thumps' but can be a little loose, I would like it tighter but for what's there with EDM or sub-bass tracks it's rather aggressive and I have wondered how such bass can come out of those little hybrids, it edges on full size headphone quantity but still behaved on tracks it's not needed. 

As for technical areas it seems to layer well and coming out of the WM8740 DAC, (same DAC as DX50) you have really good PRaT, foot tapping PRaT which makes the music very fun to listen too, it flows together rather seamlessly like a car flying down the highway with strong momentum. It's hard to describe but when you hear it you'll understand. DX50 has a similar vibe. So when you add that with BH's clarity and soundstage plus the output power it becomes really involving.

It's better than my old CK4 pairing and because C&C BH being feed a strong signal there's lots of power on tap, the higher you turn up the volume, clarity increases, detail extends and most importantly all the layering remains coherent, also a decent amount of micro detail present  It sounds big, bad, and mean, and probably the best I've heard H-200 to date. I'd say you're kind of meeting half way between an audiophile presentation with sufficient technical stance and just a darn right engaging listening experience.
 


The whole thing put together weights almost 400grams. :tongue:

I just got the alloy silver cable and been listening to H-200 with this cable. So far the most obvious difference to me compared to the stock cable (red) is I no longer hear the very soft sibilance on some of the tracks I listen to.

 

I also notice more details are getting resolved on the highs. Also the mids I notice just comes a little bit forward. But I'll need to thoroughly test these observation. I just want to enjoy it for now. :beyersmile:

So it in essence has become a $370 earphone? Now, the H-200 is good, but $370 good? Well keep us abreast of much more improved you think the H-200 is, please. The new Sony XBA H3 triple-driver hybrid will be cheaper.

post #2277 of 2552

Well, they should just sell it with one of the new cables instead of the previous stock ones, then the combined package would be less.

I spent $75 for my SPC cable which brings me to a total of $275 for my H200 setup. IMHO spending the extra $75 was worth it because of the satisfaction it has given me. Now this of course only applies to my experience with the H200 as we all have different ways of valuating our gears. Will I be willing to pay $120 for an cable upgrade? Honestly no... not because of value but more in the lines of affordability. As I've stated before; it's such a loss that T-PEOS didn't include an SPC cable along with one of the stock cables from the very start. I wouldn't mind paying $300 for that package back then...

Yeah, but you got the special deal on the earphone then, Like I did. The regular price is $250. So those who buy the upgrade cables now are going to be easily spending over $300 to upgrade that sound. From those I've spoken to, the SPC gives the H-200 a better sound but not by that much. I don't know about the all silver cable (but I don't want to know at a total of $370).

I'm getting mixed feelings about this iem. On certain songs, these really shine. Like seriously shine. Outperforms any top tier universals. Nonetheless, with some song, the harshness is just annoying.
