I'll unify my early impressions by Monday, maybe Tuesday. People tell me that my intelligence is above average, but I more than compensate for it in disorganization... The H1 is the most premium Head-Fi gear that I have. I also snapped 20 or so unboxing pics, but at ~0.3MP they're awful. Check the one of the Sunrise case for an example. I shall return.
I've just had to return a set of XBA-30s, which I loved except for the slight lack of both low and high end. I'm seriously tempted by the H3s as I tend to ramp up the outsides of the EQ on almost all music systems I have to get more from those regions. Seems like the H3 might be the way forward but I really don't want to drop that sort of cash on them if the H1s perform as I'd like. Can anyone shed any light?
The H1 treble doesn't extend all the way up... hard for the BA to cover it all?. Output seems to fall after ~16k.
In my estimate the bass rolls of faster below 40Hz, but is detectable as far as 20. I could be way off, but full output seems to be at 70 to 100. With HIGH volume, I can hear sweeps down to 17. If the room is dead silent and the software is at max, they're either audible or tactile to about 13-14.
