I literally emailed Kingsound asking for the same thing an hour ago hehe.. I have not seen this headphone for sale anywhere myself personally but I consider it an upgrade for sure on the original H1. The h1 makes everything more veiled and compressed compared to the H02.
update.... Simon is out of town until next week so have to wait until then.. holiday in HK?
Off to our national meet on Sunday and it will be side by side a Stax Omega SR007 & SM007 set and an Abyss with some tasty amps so I hope to get a proper comparison as the last system I had was a 3030 system and on aural memory they were too bass light for me. The Kingsound is more in keeping with my old SRX MK3 tonality which sadly I do not have anymore.
Apologies I have not had the same depth of exposure as some of you guys on stats but so far I find the KS system acceptable as entry level but the SS amp is not well implemented with lots of design bypasses, a cheap pot and blowing too hot (yeah I opened it up too and had a tech look at it and he smiled and wanted to know why for all the last minute revisions by KS).
The hum anyone is experiencing is 100% with the H1 headphone and not the H-02 which is a big positive for me as I am testing them side by side right now.
