Also we mention the 1 and 3 a lot but what about the H2? I wonder if it would be much better than the 1?

No news on H2 yet. IDK what H2 would be. H1 is a single dynamic and single BA. H3 is a single dynamic and dual BA. There's nothing really in between. They should have named H3 to be H2, but who knows that sony is thinking.

I think H2 will be a copy xba-30 but with a thick subbass region

But what kind of configuration? They have to be a hybrid, because it's part of the "H" line. Maybe a H1 or H3 with more bassy tuning?

Can we even preorder an h2? All i see is 1 and 3.

Interesting;

Earphone Geek is a pretty well-known audio blogger here in Japan. Rightly, he got a short but good ear on Sony's new earphones. Here are a few notes from his review.

XBA-H3 Highlights: ohmage

Wide sound stage
Good high frequency extension
Powerful, well-resolved 30-50Hz detail
Great sound balance for a hybrid dynamic / balanced earphone
XBA-H3 Highlights: porridge

Vocals should step out further
NOTE: MMCX connection


XBA-H2 Highlights: porridge

Balance is poor
Same confused high range as EX1000
Cloudy high range of Sony's previous XBA series
Too much bass for such confused high range
NOTE I: Sound that mimics the worst of the EX1000 and the worst of the previous XBA series.

NOTE II: Earphone geek notes NO good points.


XBA-H1 Highlights: ohmage

High range is a clear improvement to the cloudy presentation of the previous XBA series
High range still not perfect; some defects from the XBA series remain
Beautiful bass reproduction
Most mature-sounding of the new H series

NOTE: Among the new, bass-blessed H series, this model has the best cost/performance.

The H1 sounds great!

Interesting. I might try H1 instead of H3 if that's the case. No V shaped iem for me.

Most mature-sounding of the new H series

What does that mean?

thanks interesting

Fingers itching on pre-ordering the xba-h3. Not that I need them, just be curious.

Probably most balanced. I think they are criticizing H3 and H2 for being too extreme. V shape and violent bass.
