this is what audio 360.org says on h1
"M.L.: Thanks to Mr. Jeff Hiatt (Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Sony), we were able to get an exclusive demo of their new Balanced Armature Hybrid in-ears: the XBA-H1 and XBA-H3. We found the XBA-H1 to be stunningly good sounding for only $149 - as we especially liked the toe-tapping sound signature and powerful bass. There was no hint of distortion - even when driven at high levels."
u know what i feel??
NO DISTORTION AT HIGH VOLUME??THEY HAVE NO CLARITY FOR AN IEM WORTH 150$
