Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Headphones, IEMs, Amps, DACs) - Page 247

I know, I go off subject and these aren't budget, but I have to share this because my favorite head fiers follow this thread and I want to share with you guys.

I just got my h3s in and they are amazing. It's like having a $10,000 dollar 6.1 surround system playing for my personal listening pleasure. It's a v-signature that's on performance enhancing drugs. The mids are so beautiful though. The bass is oh so beautiful and deep, everything is oh so wonderfully tuned and distortion free. Separation is epic, Soundstage width and depth is breathtaking.

I was worried about the fit, but the cable is so well designed and of such high quality that they fit my ears like custom iems. Oh yeah, they supply an extra cable with a mic also!

It's the classic sony sound taken to a whole new level, and sibilance free.

There's been a lot of negative comments on them and it's a damn shame.

The gr07 BE and DNK still have a place in my collection. They are my Mercedes Benz and BMW. The h3 is my Ferrari!

If you want hifi, fun, lively, accurate, deep and still detailed sound these are where it's at! These are worth the $250 promotional price I paid. If I heard them as a demo and the store said they were $500, I would put them on my list of things to buy. I'm serious.

But doesn't v-sig of H3s means recessed mids?  I'm afraid with a great bass performance vocals will be pushed back :(  Is that a case?

It's not though!!!

Take one of the best dual balanced armature iems you have, now take the ex1000 16mm driver and use it as a dedicated subwoofer. Ya, it's powerful and articulate. There are occasions where the bass is on the verge of taking you to bassland but you're still getting the mids and highs just as they aught to be!

Here is another one I'm curious about, from another Chinese phone manufacture, Vivo XE800: http://www.vivo.com.cn/vivo/xe800/

 

Any experience with it?  It looks beautiful, adjustable nozzle, wire up/down location, but having a problem with web translator now to figure out other details.

I always listen to evanescence "fallen" as the first album for a new iem because it will reveal deficiency pretty quickly.

I see none. The bass might be too much for people who are looking for "perfectly flat" sound but that's not what sony was going for with these. I can't wait to listen to movies on them. They are so hifi!

Which one has more bass, DM2 or H3?

That's a tough question because the seal on the dm2 has a lot to do with bass impact and sound quality on a whole.

When I use a wide bore tip that seals well on the dm2, the sound is boomy and makes the mids muddy and the treble too splashy. In this case the bass impact is about equal, but the quality right out of the box of the h3 is superior quality wise.

The dm2 is one of my favorite phones in the $65 range because I did a lot of experimenting with tips and found the perfect one for them. I use the ear guides and go over the ear with a little extra slack on them. I use a narrow bore tip that fits snug and doesn't seal completely (as closed to sealed with out actually sealing). Using that set up the dm2 is so lovely and the bass is still prominent. The mids are nice and treble actually becomes a strength rather than a weakness. When I wear them this way the bass impact on the h3 is more prominent, and still better sq.

We're talking about a driver that minus the hybrids (ex1000) and used for the whole spectrum sells for over $500!

PS-I only use the red filter on my dm2. Unless you're a bass head the black filter is way to bass, and the silver filter is garbage (no bass at all).

The dm2 is great. The h3 is in a whole other league though. It's like comparing a really good bookshelf 2.1 speaker system to a top of the line tower speaker and sub woofer setup.

Any feedback on this XE800?  Anybody heard it or heard of it?

Looks like the vsd series but is supposedly same drivers as the gr07 😲... And same performance level as well with 50ohm impedance 😃

So it's rebranded and updated, I guess?  Looks sexy!

On Taobao for as low as $65 on a quick look. Plus a mic if you need one for phone use. Might be a better buy than the new VSD's or Classics for some people, lol! They look a lot nicer than the GR07 or VSD1 does.
