Anybody tried using the mic cord with an iphone yet? Just switched the cords for the first time - man those connections are TIGHT! I thought I was doing something wrong and had to twist them or something but followed instructiuons and pulled them straight off. I thought I was going to cause some damage but it worked fine. Just make sure you grip them right at the connection because I'm sure the amount of force required could do some damage.

 

Anyway, the mike worked but on a very brief test, The quality wasn't the greatest. Not horrible but sounded "rough". Anybody else tried this yet?

Lol, I've changed the cords from day 1, and I have nothing much to add. They didn't come in handy like I thought they would, but I have it plugged in anyway.

Has anyone tried silver or copper cables with these?

Anyone know how these stack up against the Atomic Floyd Superdarts? (Hybrid as well)

Between the 2, I prefer H3, SD is extreme V-shaped with a very recessed midrange

Yeah, I saw Lin try the SD... didn't last ten seconds on his ear.

So, I didn't even bother to try.

I picked up a pair at my local Sony store, they were on sale for $300! I know it's not as good as that Amazon deal, but it was a surprise because the Sony Canada site didn't mention it was on sale.

The huge "on sale" probably an indication the phones have not been sold so well.

post #1815 of 2796
Hmmm... so when the Fidelio X1 hit its "huge sale" would you say IT hadn't sold so well, as of that point?

It's about time the H3 went on sale, if you ask me. The longevity of its original price leads me to disagree with that perception.
