I love the way the h3 has such powerful bass, and still the mids and treble come through very clear without being overly bright or sibilant.
Would you care to share the differences in sound between the h3 and ex1000? I understand they are different technology, just curious as to the difference in signatures.
Agreed, it's probably one of the H3's biggest assets, that it will satisfy any basshead and still sound amazingly clear and detailed throughout the mids and treble.
The EX1000 have much more linear and tighter bass, which bassheads will probably find thin and lacking in comparison to the H3. Treble is more pronounced and livelier, but some folks may find it harsher and more fatiguing than the H3's. One of the most significant differences is timbre, the EX1000 being single full-range dynamic driver based, whereas on the H3 mids and treble are dominated by armatures, which make their timbre more similar to the X3/X30 than the EX1000.
