Sony XBA-H1 and XBA-H3 Hybrid Dynamic and BA IEM - Page 124

Chaps, the bass is built in by design, so with the stellar high's and acceptable mids, you get an entertaining IEM. It is not a studio monitor, it needs a long burn in, if you are allergic to bass. There is a world of detail, it's a beaut. Tape mods/bass bleed, Tape mods/bass bleed....please stop!

Oh, that was the problem, I wasn't poking a hole in the tape... No worries though, I'm shipping them back to Eke today and I ordered a set that will be here on Thursday. :)

Add a silver cable to the equation and these sound incredible.

I have to agree with Danny. The stock cable of the H3 limits the sonics of the phones.. I ended up getting a cheaper silver coated OFC Shure cables for the H3 and the Sonics notably improved..I just ended up getting the same cable Danny got. I am certain these will bring the SQ up a notch or two..

Why improve the sound? Perhaps synergy is the golden key; The H3 with an i pod, i was displeased, the H3 with me Sony same price DAP, I was greatly pleased.

I'm greatly pleased, I just need a better cable. The angle at the driver entry makes these bulkier than need be.

I was unaware that these have the same connectors as Shure's... so I'll just be looking into their stock SExxx ones for a few bucks. Upgrading cables is something I am saving my wallet from.

Then you might run the risk of being even greatly more pleased! All this pleasing, must be Easter.

Anybody able to compare the H3 to the ATH-CKS77X?

I realize they are in different catagories but greatly admire the cks77x im combo with my NWZ1060. Considering the ZX1 now together with the H3's. Looking forward to how that will work out:)

Much higher class of earphone..Tactile extended silky treble vs harder less dynamic treble in the CKS77X. Less warm more accurate wider deeper mids with a completely different level of instrument separation and vocal presentation. The H3 has it's own bass dynamic that is larger than the 13mm CKS77X.  16mm.. Might give you an indication of the bass capabilities. CKs77X is boomier bass while the H3 will have the deeper more extended textured and layered bass. Overall much less coloration in all areas of sound.  Way better spacial qualities and a 3D type rendering of sound on the H3. The H3 represents a good 3 tiers of better from the CKS77X. 

 

Save some money and go for the new Ibasso DX90 instead. Get a H3 and a FX850 for the same money spent on the ZX1 and H3. (More for your money)
