Sony XBA-H1 and XBA-H3 Hybrid Dynamic and BA IEM - Page 101

post #1501 of 3253

Did anyone test the H3 with Comply TSX 200?

post #1502 of 3253
I tried it with the T-200. Couldn't get a great seal with the sony tips. Was curious about the TSX tips myself.

   you can see my iem listing , i got an er-4p , ue600 , memories of ue700 , xb90ex , and some budget phones topped by she9850 , pl50 , cc51 . after 3hrs of use , i can tell you that , these are better then xba-3 to me ( may be not , lets it burn ) , and to me xba-3 is not a bad phone at all .

 

   i got it from snapdeal , they have it for 5604rs , which is nearly $92 . and these are worthy of this price tag . but it took them 15 solar days to deliver , bad service .

     i m enjoying it , nice full bass , its like merging an ue600 with a xb90ex . some times we should give up preciseness and enjoy , to get analytical listening , i got er-4p , ue600 and she9850 in iems , and srh440 , hd380 pro and zx700 in headphones , my ba200 got stuck at customs and i lost it .

 

    how did they let you return it ? its rare at indian sellers .

did not get the money back but managed to exchange it with walkman e474 which also goes for 6990.

 

i had proper bill so they obliged after a lot of trying on my part.

 

btw this pair has a very good bass,,,but i was not happy with mids and clarity compared to gr07

    yeah obviously it cant take on gr07 , not even in its dreams , it clearly lacks spark for sure , but i think it has some respectable amount of mids , bass and sound stage , and just okay type highs , they just cant thrill me , but i can hear them for a long time , still on , for last 6hrs . far better then xb90ex , no doubts in there , i just want to compare them with xba-3 and ue600 . and man , some times i like bass , you know moody type listening , and im loving it . i will give it ( if you give 9/10 to gr07 ) 8.5/10 , and will recommend it to some one who likes smooth treble and formidable amount of bass with good mids . yes there is a dip in the spectrum ( which gr07 lacks ) , in between 1.5k  to 3k ,  but its fine .

yes u are quite right,,,for 5400 they are indeed very good.

 

at that range we cannot get much else than re400 which are available at hifinage in india for 6100 rs only

   nope man , re-400 is epic , as epic as gr07 , with lesser bass , fast decay is why i love ba phones , this xba-h1 will never get into my fav list , not till now , its just cant control the bass and lacks spark , and simpy just cant take on the speed of re-400 or ue600 .

i am def gonna get re400 sometime but first i want to actually try ex7550.

re400 is free with hm 700 though for 250$,,,not a bad bargain

post #1513 of 3253

    i saw that , but the new fiio x5 is more tempting to me , i would have loved the zx1 , but it seems like just way over my budget , they are asking for something like 480pounds , they are nuts , and man , ex7550 is hell of a phone , but i think gr07 and ex7550 has the same signature , and ex7550 is not a significant improvement over gr07 when it come to overall sq , just better sound stage and like most sonys they are a bit dry , they are awesome so does gr07 .

u are right,,i too have my hopes on x5,,,at 350-400$ it looks pretty awesome plus the build quality looks exceptional.

i was also considering h3 but i figured in that money i may get something better.

 

are u gonna try h3??

      may be , i will seek some feedback first , if the bass is like a xb90ex , then i will pass , i will try it if the decay is fast enough . and yes man , for that much money you can buy a dn-1000 and a r-50 . i will get it if its worth it , or if its priced like 15k in india . one thing is confirmed and that is , it has better treble extension and has more spark , but i dont want bass like xb90ex , the decay is as bad as it can get for a mid range phone , even an ue-400 has better decay , its not like a hd 380 pro , so then the sound stage , spacing and layering comes to play , lets pray for the best . , i think my next iem will be the tdk ie800 / ma-750 or ath-ckx9 . and thanks for that site man , im thinking of getting the vsd1s in between .
