i try triple flange with gr07 mk2 and it becomes another iem,,i am confident it can beat many sub 300-350$ iem's in that config.........

I don't have any triple flanges to try but these double ones don't go that deep at all and the bass is also still present.

I will have to use the double for longer periods but doesn't seem painful at all but it does make the H3 stick out sideways even more. 

Anyway .. I still like it more tame with a bit more bass.. so will stick with my purple tips from the Heaven IV.

 

Tried the tape mod too .. didn't like it as it reduced the soundstage too much for my liking .. I felt it took all the air away.

My H3s are on loan, so I can't take a pic atm.

 

However, the tape mod is easy as pie. Just put a strip of duct tape over the vent and poke a tiny hole with a needle, so that the vent can still breathe.

 

This results in reduced airflow through the vent, increased damping of the driver, and tighter, less bloated bass.

I'd be concerned of adhesive migrating inside of the H3's when doing the tape mod. One might be risking that over time, something will go wrong. Perhaps taping over small piece of plastic film might be a wise approach.

Use 3m "scotch tape". The frosted kind. Easy to remove leaves no residue whatsoever. I would stay away from duct tape as some brands definitely leave a residue and are much harder to remove the longer they are on

sorry for the crappy pics, too lazy to get my dslr out, but that's what my tape mod looks like atm.

Sure I'll get buyers remorse, however just ordered the H3, for delivery tomorrow...

Hope the sound balance lives up to expectation...

Like them for what they are, which is a powerhouse sound with sub bass qualities and great separation. Don't hate them because they don't sound like reference monitors.

Enjoy them!

PS all this talk about modding them with tape...

No offense guys but rather than adjusting the bass output with tape and pinholes, use the eq setting, it's less work and more effective. It looks nicer too.

Bought a second pair of H3 as spare since they were on sale for only $239 shipped, new.

Hisoundfi couldn't be any more correct. Huge soundstage, deep hitting bass and very easy to listen to.

Try them with Comply 400TX.

I believe it's the 200 series, that's what I use and all the Sony's on Comply's site XBA 4 etc are 200's
