Sony XBA-H1 and XBA-H3 Hybrid Dynamic and BA IEM - Page 94

^ Nope, since I was just talking about extension. ;)

 

Thing is, you get the same extension without EQ, but subbass is partly masked by midbass. The XBA-4 really reward EQing, first and foremost in the mids.

Anyone here also own an Ultimate Ears Triple fi 10?

 

I'd like to see how the H3 looks like side by side with what used to be the largest dumbo-style consumer iem on the market.

While it pains me to cede ground to the ie 800,albeit it not defining ground, i should have more luck with the Stax 009 cobbled together with a blue hawihi(sic) thinghie for tomorrow's side by side!

How does the bass compare between the two?

the mids are very comparable. H1 is more clear and more refined, great all-around.

xb90 is still much deeper bass.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I also have the XBA-1. Bass not really to my standard. Is everything upgraded in the H1? Well worth double the price?

post #1402 of 3252

I purchased the XBA-H3 and it's on it's way.

 

The one I purchased is Japanese import. However, I have a question; is the Japanese and the European versions are 100% the same ? which one would you prefer ?

 

Thanks.

My guess is both are made in Thailand anyway, but your version's going to be the well-travelled one. :smile_phones:

Hi guys :)

I have the Sony XBA-4. I'm interested in the H-3... But what is/are the difference(s) between the XBA-4 and the H-3 in terms of sound quality ?

 

Technically, which one is the best ?

Dannybai gave his comparison a few pages back.

 

"I really like the H3 and after comparing to the XBA-40 that I still have, the H3 blows away the 40's, especially in the vocals and treble.  I don't have the pickiest of hearing and enjoy many sounds from various earphones and the H3 ranks as one of the more pleasing sounds I've heard from any earphone."

post #1407 of 3252

But other than Hurts being on the box, is there any other differences ?

post #1408 of 3252

i just heard h1 again(returned these a month back) in sony shop and compared to gr07 mk2.

 

bass is pretty decent but mids and highs cannot match gr07 which is understandable as gr07 is 2 times the price of h1.

 

anyone compared h2 or h3 with gr07 mk2??care to share the findings?

post #1409 of 3252

GR07 is $179.99 and the Sony XBA-H1 is $159.99 on Amazon.

 

How is the GT07 is twice the price of the XBA-H1 ?

 

I am getting the XBA-H3 tomorrow or the day after, cant wait !
