Btw, where did you buy Havi B3 Pro?

 

The MH415 is slightly warm with good dynamic treble. Nice clarity. Slight pain to get a good fit and find the right tips. Terrific value. Interchanges cables with the Moxpad X3, another good low cost IEM.

 

I had the VSD1LE, and it was similar to the MH415 but possibly was a little more clear or had a little more of a soundstage. It was also almost twice the cost. The VSD1S is a great IEM loved by many, is cheaper, and it sounds like you can't go wrong with it.

 

The Havi B3 Pro is on another level. I've written a lot about it, but it may be discontinued.

This may be the link to purchase it, but I'm doubtful if it is the pro version still.

You need to use a taobao forwarding service to purchase it. They are on Chinese holiday until feb 8th.

Try Comply T200 or S200 (I prefer that model). Comfort and fit will be a lot better.

Verdict is: no.

Most people are getting fakes from inshoes.

Don't know if I would say "most" people.  So far, there are only 2 negative feedback for that item.

I'm not going by ebay feedback. In the discovery thread their were a bunch of members complaining about getting fakes from inshoes. The only safe place to buy them is ibuygou.

It could actually be a lot more fakes then the 2 negative feedback left on eBay. Some people might have fakes and not even know that they have them. Or might not be leaving feedback at all.

Well that sucks,  they have the best shipping speed of any Chinese vendor I've ever seen too.

I would be very surprised if fake Havi exists BUT there's three versions of the B3's and there's no way telling them from each other on looks so if you're not willing to gamble with your money I'd stay away from them.

"Only?" 2 negative feedback saying he sells fakes are more than enough of a red flag / warning that the guy isn't selling legit products. 

 

I think after the Chinese New Year holidays, I'll contact some sources I have in China and see if I can get a bulk stock of legit Piston 2.0 and sell them myself, so people don't have to worry about getting counterfeits.

Those are the newest version being offered by Havi, which doesn't sound as good as the pro tuned one. I talked to the seller and he only has access to the newest ones.

Got the Fidue AF81 in my ears now, no burn-in so take this with a pinch of salt. First impressions (comfort is ok, the housing is quite big and takes a while to get used to the fit, and I dislike memory wire in general) Forward mids that are very detailed. The lows could have a bit more control, they do hit very hard though. The highs are quite crisp and airy. Separation and soundstage is very good, Radiohead in FLAC sounds great, with a fairly balanced sound.

 

I think they need some burn-in as the lows sound very un-even at the moment, these do have fairly bad driver-flex.

 

Listening out of a Fiio X3 > Silver line out cable > JDS Labs C5D.

Nice little find today:

 

New for 2014

 

Bluedio EH

http://www.bluedio.com/detail-produit.php?ref=576

 

It turns any earphone/headphone you have into a bluetooth 4.0 "wireless" one. If you have aptX on your phone or PC with a bluetooth 4.0 aptx dongle (cheap), you can walk around the room with this thing and have near lossless sound.

 

Like the Blueant Ribbon, but with BT 4.0 and aptX.

 

$30 shipped on JD.com

Tip rolling now, trying some Comply, better comfort, much better comfort. The nozzle seem to be a tiny bit wider than the standard of most IEM's. Not a problem as normal tips still fit on them, just requires a little more effort.
