Thanks for mentioning this!  For someone who listens straight out of laptop and phone, this is very helpful.  Right now, the most power hungry IEM I have is the KEF M200.

The KEF and Havi are similar power wise. Both truly need an amp.

A poor man's fx650-850 perhaps? KZ has a presale for an ebony detachable IEM with a "Linear professional" version.

Almost went in for the presale of the linear professional edition. Checked out Mistertao and Smalltao. Was $5 more on Mistertao, ~$29.50 vs. ~$34.50 so I went with smalltao and couldn't pay. Error message for CC payment page and though it says on the first page Paypal is also accepted it probably wasn't for that seller so no other option. Didn't feel like going through it again on mistertao so my wallet is won't be getting any lighter.

My order from Penon Audio aka bestbargainsonline @ ebay; arrived today.

Havi B3 Pro V1 with Red Dot on the box.

Tested for working and all is good.  Sounds great right out of the box.

Giving them some play time, will listen seriously later.

Thanks all for outing these.

Mistertao only shows the correct $15.74 when I bring it up. Should be around $20-22 after fees and shipping.

 

Alipay is what they all use mostly (secure CC portal). Very rare to see paypal for those agents anymore.

Gold.

Would love to see some KZ and SIDY stuff through Penon Audio.

bhazard,

 

if you have rooted the phone or has a custom recovery (e.g., TWRP) installed, I sincerely suggest you to try out this sound boost mod: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2532788

Not only does it increase the speaker volume, it also increases the headphone's volume.  

 

In essence, it permanently increases analog power amp gain by +5, instead of digital gain, so no distortion.

 

I love B3 pro with this mod without external dac/amp.

 

Sorry for the off-topic.

Well, what I did was decide to get them to try them out and have another cable for my failing U10 cable. So, after first pay stage I am at $17.38. Let's hope the second stage shipping is actually better than what the calculator gave me and it is well below the previous price estimate :)

Glad that you receive it, mine will be arriving next week (bought from the same seller).

 

Please share your opinions about Havi B3.

I actually use "fauxsound" and Viper4android to increase the gain, but I still don't think its enough. It just makes it more listenable.

This seller has no feedback but the item is interesting. I send him an email to get more info: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Diy-ie80-earphones-diy-earphones/1591113005.html

 

(Seems like the driver has two components: one dynamic, one armature)
