You're position is already well established and if you don't have something new or important to add, you might consider toning it down bit. Just say'in.


am just asking for a review man,,,no agenda from my side.

this iem is going for just 250$ right now at amazon down from 300$+,,,,if its good enough for the price i would take a chance as my gr07 are back to lmue for warranty purposes.

 

but i haven't seen any comparisons with the competition

Can you please just cool it, IMO your reasons don't have much traction.

+1 . I've read nearly every post on this thread, pro and con. Personally I really like my H3's but that's just my opinion. I completely understand someone obsessing over how good they feel a product is but always a bit strange when they obsess about it in a negative way, particularly if they've never owned it.

No talk on the H1's? Just the 3's? I have the ones and am thinking about returning for the 3's. Do the 3's have a cross over network?

The XBA-H3 doesn't have a crossover network but it is very well designed to avoid needing one. The bass doesn't seem to bleed into the mids but it does have a wall of bass effect when powered with a Headstage Arrow 4G amplifier. Love that huge bass!

Could be a mechanical filter based crossover in play as they've done in the past.

The H3's continue to amaze me. Maybe I just haven't listened to high end iem's enough although I have auditioned quite a few but prior to these my "best" ones were Westone UM2's, some of the early Shures (can't even remember the models it was a few years ago.) and Bose QC20i (purchased for active NC only). Anyway, I dozed off listening to them last night and woke up a bit later thinking someone was in my room talking to me! I've done this before (dozed off) with my other iem's but never had that effect. I just find the separation and clarity are head and shoulders above some of the other iem's I've tried - the great bass is a given. I'm going to try and listen to Shure 846 and see how much difference there is for the $700 price increase.Has anybody else listened to both the H3 and the 846?

Although I don't really need them I'm ever so tempted to purchase H3, and I have no true explanation why. I saw them for $300 on a website a few days ago and just became drawn to them. Must be the build I really REALLY liked.

i am dying for an impression but i don't think many in india have this thing really.

and otherwise its beyond my budget,,,300$ is too much.

 

in india i am getting ue900 for 220$ with bill,,,,,from ebay with seller having 99.5% rating.

 

is that good deal??

All I'm going to say is that if you do, don't go into it thinking you will get a reference flat sound. If you want a warm signature that is sibilant free, and want some of the best bass and separation at the the same time as you've ever heard, these are the answer. I own over 50 pairs of headphones and iems, and these are the best for movies, soundtracks, electronic music, hip hop, female voices, and long listening sessions. Going back to anything else I own after a few hours of these sounds sibilant and bass anemic. If you're getting them for the right reasons as I described you will be more than happy with your purchase. PS Amazon had them on special for 250 when I bought mine, they might still have that promo deal going on.

I love mine and after hearing them I honestly would have paid more than I did for them.

I haven't heard UE900, though $220 sounds decent . Many mentions reporting build fatalities though. H3 is pretty decent, if I was in USA with access to Amazon when they were $250? I woulda dun it.
