Does anyone know of any places that I can go to check out in Hong Kong?

There are actually many good DIY kits available in the US, with pre-cut flat pack MDF for ~$200 a speaker. Check this site out... www.diysoundgroup.com. Top quality for bargain pricing. I haven't seen any Asian vendors that could beat it, as shipping adds up quick on heavier items.

 

PM me for more info, as it's not really Asian.

I gotta try some triple flanges again. I remember it causes the body of the Havi to stick out a bit, and it can become uncomfortable if they go too deep, but they do seal very well.

post #1864 of 8063
Yeah, I definitely recommend trying it out, for me there's a significant difference in bass impact and isolation. I've got pretty small ears so the housing stay pretty much in the same place for me with tri flanges as with regular tips. I've also ordered soon bi flange but It'll probably be a while before I get them.

Today I got my Dolphin - right out of the box: they are nice. Powerful and fun sound, pretty good amount of detail, though it could be more treble for my tastes.

Inner diameter of the earpads could be larger, but still it's much more comfortable than CAL!. Pretty good noise cancelling.

More treble????? Wow! I love highs, and i actually leave me eq flat. These things kicj butt with highs. Maybe you got a bad set.

post #1867 of 8063

Nah, I just need a pretty large quantity and good quality treble for listening strings (mainly violin).

Still think you have a bad pair. The treble is massive and clean on these things.

Massive and clean are different to everyone, especially when it comes to highs. What can be too much for one person, may not be enough for another.

+1 

 

I know people who claim that Denon D1100 have very good highs, and yet D1100 are hopeless (not enough treble and they have poor quality).

Dolphin are very interesting, with a pleasant sound, but to headphones that have really shiny and great highs, they are very far in this.

Run it through burn in, you might hear sound improvement.  These are dynamic drivers after all :)

The highs of the B3's are so very smooth with triflange tips. I just can't stop listening to these iem's, they're so seducing.

Finally got my KZ order from 2 months ago. They were sent back by customs from China Post.

 

The V-Moda type headphone looks awesome. Doesn't look as sweet as the actual V-Modas, but I love the foldable design and case. The sound quality is warm and clear. It probably sounds like the LP2. I only had the LP and that was a pure bass cannon. These aren't as rumbly, but they do focus on bass.

 

Won't have time to really listen to everything until Sunday.

The only difference in the description with the regular v2.0 is "Dual-damping balance system make the sound more pure".

Bought anyway.
