You can see some pictures of opened R1 online. Can you compare soundwise both of them?

There is no SMD resisor under the red insulation. If you solder a resistor on a wire than it is shorted out of the sircuit. Have you ever tried to solder leads to SMD resistors?! It's impossible! The red wire is a simple jumper.

Opened my r1's a moment ago and there were no filters or damping material in them at all.

The b3's sounds way better.

So bhazard, having both the B3 Pro and the AX35, do you consider them roughly equal? It seems the AX35 has a bit more bass.

whats my best choice for an in ear, I do like bass, but not overpowering, but i do like treble..would the harvi b3's be a good match for me?

I think MH415 are better.

I'm also curious about the Havi vs AX35.

I finally jumped in to it and removed the resistors on my B3's and although the difference is not huge the soundstage I defiantly bigger without them.

I think I'm done messing with the B3's. Now it's time to just enjoy the music smily_headphones1.gif

They are both roughly equal. The B3 Pro is more of a reference neutral signature, making it slightly better, but it is also no longer offered. The AX35 has both more bass, and more upper treble sparkle thanks to the BA and slight V-sig. The new B3 tuning cannot compete with either.

 

I'll have to take apart my enhanced version to see how close it comes without the resistor and filters.

The Astrotec AX35 and Somic MH415 are both outstanding. The new Havi's aren't as good as the older Pro version.

See above. The new Havi's can't compete, but the Pro is still tops. The two are both good complements and both are highly recommended.

Although it says professional, this is NOT the Pro version, I believe the Pro is now discontinued, and this is the newest tuning version 3.
