post #1922 of 12819

Today i received havi B3(old) and piston 2.0(it has a clip, seller sent it like 3 weeks a go, i didn't know then that pistons have a clip included, which version it is?).

So my question is how to to know if B3 is old v or v2 (i asked for old version while buying from bigbargainonline)? They don't seem to lack bass for me as i am coming from vsonic vc02 and dt880 premium.

Tried a few songs on both. Piston 2.0 felt a bit dark and bassy, then i put havi b3 and instantly fell in love with the signature, that detail and openness(for an in-ear).

If you have the clip, you have the newest Piston version.

 

The old Havis should now have a red dot or something on the box to indicate the old version.

Yep, it's the old version. Much better to my ears than the newer Pro II. Pro 1 is a detail and soundstage monster.

Oh man, sorry to hear that.  I have been shopping in there for over a year, bought a ton of cases, cables, cheap headphones, even toys for my kids.  They used to be case-parts.com, which is still a mirror of their store, until they switched to tvc-mall as a main site.  Back in the days of case-parts.com they used to accept PayPal, so when they switched I just create an order on tvc-mall, and then email them order # with my paypal confirmation.  If anything, their support and sales can get overwhelming because of being too attentive with constant email questions and confirmations.  If you feel comfortable, drop me PM with your order number so I can email my sales contact in there.

Source is desktop/laptop>fiio e17 or nexus5 or nexus5>fiio e17 (n5 with custom kernel which increases quality from stock quite a lot).

Lately i have been listening to electronic/ambient/chill/downtempo/chilled dnb&dubstep kind of music, sometimes i listen to some jazz records or even classics.

with that collection i think you shouldn't have a problem.

Currently i am trying  included havi foam tips which gives quite good seal for me. Can't tell about sound characteristics with these tips as i haven't compared to other tips. I thought i will have problem with comfort and seal with havi because of its big size. For me tips are good as long as i have good seal because my right ear canal is a bit weird therefore usually it is hard to get good/same amout of seal on the right ear without blocking the sound (especially with silicone tips). For example with Pistons currently i haven't managed to get a good seal.

So basically Havi B3 Pro Mk. I and Mk. II resemble Sennheiser IE8/IE80 the most but the disconnectable cable?

 

It would be such a steal if the cable itself is removeable or modable to remove
