Yes, this is the link to HAVI on taobao. The manufacturer is the only seller currently.

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.w9YMPf&id=35700828655

 

Use mistertao.com or a similar Taobao agent to order it in your own language. 239 Yuan = $40, + packing and commission = ~$47 or so. After the promotion period, the price jumps to $65.

 

There are two versions of tunings too, "professional", and "enhanced". I ordered professional because I like balanced sound. The description of the enhanced version sounds like it would have a midbass and treble boost.

Google chrome can translate the webpage for you automatically. No idea when the promo ends.

 

Here is what is says translated:

 

Buyers Please Note: B3 of the enhanced version and the Professional version .Strengthening and Professional undifferentiated appearance, but according to the music lovers and headphones enthusiasts needs of different tuning.

Enhanced version : easy to push, the sound field broad, sound more comfortable, more relaxed bass, vocals closer, there are bass sound, the overall style for most music lovers. Sellers Recommended: Enhanced Edition!

Professional Edition : To burn, might sound air will feel a strong sense of sound, the sound will be very supple after burn, poison tenor vocals, MF and HF solution clarity force stronger than the enhanced version, the overall sound more balanced, more sound density , voice control is better. For front thrust larger and sound understanding and sound quality headphones require a higher senior players.

Professional edition sounds more focused to audiophiles and Head-Fi nuts like us. Enhanced edition sounds like it is tuned for the Beats Audio lovers.

Nope, looks like they are a legit new LLC, registered in New Jersey, USA. That address is real.

How did you communicate with the seller to choose the model?

I put a request in with my taobao agent to purchase the professional version. It is on them to hopefully do it for me, as there is no other choice.

Is there a way to tell the two models apart?

No idea.

 

I finally got the Moxpad X3 in after a long shipping delay. First impressions... these are much better than I expected.

 

They look awesome, fit great, have nice extended bass, yet the whole sound seems very balanced and pretty clear. I'll have to A/B these with my KEF M200 to spot differences later.

What a peculiar brand. I see 'Havi' and I think of the little tiny town in Hawaii that helps hold the Ironman World Championship every year (even though it's spelled "Hawi", it's pronounced "Havi").

 

Also, B3, B6, and B9 make me think of Niacin, Pyridoxine, and Folic Acid... but maybe that's just me.

post #251 of 35472

I am so tempted in buying the Havi B3, as well as any hybrid IEM from China, just a little concerned because I never bought from Taobao before, and also, I got conned once by someone from China...

post #252 of 35472

I was looking up the HAVI a week or two ago and found that they are also here in the U.S.

 

HAVI Audio Technology Co., Ltd. PO Box 896 Mullica Hill, NJ 08062-0896

 

Not very far from me in NY.

The Moxpad X3 looks very interesting - where did you buy them from and how long was that shipping delay?

I've noticed that the Moxpad X3 has swapable cables. Is there a cable without a mic and a remote for cellphones?
