This site? Their bass colour look to be just rebranded velodyne vpulses so at $35 are pretty great for the price.

The Bass Colour comes with a nice case too and sounds fantastic. I believe it is the VPulse as well.

 

Their other unfinished site is http://www.s-donscorpio.com

Yes it is, and Penon Audio is awesome.

 

For ~$10, I'd love to see some store start selling these Holy Serpent H5's. Looks like a nice budget find.

I would like to cry out FOUL for the above post being the first ( I apologize if I missed another - if it exists in this thread ) to point out Havi B3 Pro (Old Version, with the red paper sticker dot on the transparent lid of the box ) to mention they are - power hungry. This is waaay understated - I never run across an IEM that needs so much juice to start to sing.

 

The minute I opened the box and put them in my ears I pressed the play button on the Korg MR 1000 recorder and the song was the last song from the "scouting acoustics" session for the renaissance programme of one of the very best male choirs on the planet. This is very quiet music, sung mostly very softly - hence the need for another acoustics we record more usual repertoire in.

 

Flying colours. Even the damn lamp pole OUTSIDE of church carying not only lamp but two not-so-small-transformers-making-big-hum- noise was clearly correctly slightly to the left and CLEARLY behind ( the correct location in real life ) was perfectly reproduced. When we will be recording for real, this hum will have to be *somehow* silenced - one way - or another. Simple method of "stoning the bulb" would just not work - transformers will still be there, as they obviously supply the current for all the lights surrounding the church.

 

Then came the icicle cold shower. Beethoven 5th symphony - recording from a few days back. On timpany, it was clear that my amp is clipping - and look at the volume control really alarmed me,as I NEVER had it that high before, with anything, but speccially not an IEM.

 

That is a bummer - meaning that truly portable use of Havi B3 Pro (Old Version) is no go. My amp can take power supply from 9V DC to 44V DC - and I will determine just how much is needed for Havi today - but anything more than a single 9V battery is ever more cumbersome and more transportable than truly portable.

 

The power hungryness of Havi is compounded by the need to boost the bass - it is not much required ( exact amount to be determined after at least say 10 hours of normal operation - but preferably after GOOD burn in ) - and that increases demands on the source/amp yet further.

 

So - those who are considering Havi B3 Pro (Old Version) - ask yourself if you do have equipment to support them properly. I can see some quite long faces otherwise ...

 

Agreed on Penon Audio aka bestbargainsonline @ ebay; very prompt communication, it took exactly 15 days, customs etc included, from the order to delivery via standard Hong Kong air mail post, not courier service. One can not ask for anything more; I warmly recommend them. They even went to the trouble of putting real stamps ( VERY nice looking stamps, certainly not common in my neck of woods...) instead of printed postage sticker on the nicely wrapped package - these guys take pride in their work, promoting Hong Kong in the process. It just does not get any better than this.

I use the B3 straight out of my X3 on the high gain setting. They only need a couple more volume notches than other phones like that.

post #1959 of 8428

I have to turn the volume on my dragonfly up to around the same level as my he400 to get them to a comfortable level for me. The he400 aren't super power hungry like other orthos but still kinda neat an iem needs this much power, a rather above average amount.

With more power you get more better sound...and no the are not bass light but very great almost on par with my perfect iem the fx850....the only thing missing is the efficiency 😁😎
post #1963 of 8428
With my Lumia 920 it needs 50% volume and also my hsa 3rd anv., didn't try the x3 yet😲
post #1964 of 8428
Even though the B3's are harder to drive than your average iem there's no problem with the X3. Just compared them with X3 and Magni and they both drive them equally good, just different characteristics. Actually they produce a bit more bass with the X3. I like them best with my LD I+ through, so smooth and sufficient bass. Bhazard seem to like them with his Aune T1 as well so those of you that have the possibility should try them with tubes smily_headphones1.gif
