Ooh ..also received this yesterday from ebay ..won JBM MJ1000 at winning bid price .....will not believe it at USD1.38 free shipping.

They sound very good ...just took my Moxpad to burn and put this on ...quite similar sound signature less detailed but imho 70% . Treble a little bit harsh and bass a tad better than Moxpad

Cheers

It does a lot well for $20. Hard to beat at that price. Definitely a value/performance winner, and one of my favorites.

 

The Havi with bass boost might be my new #1 though. It almost sounds like a more neutral Hifiman RE-400. That's my next A/B test later.

I requested the "Professional tuned" version via the Taobao agent, who then requested it from the seller. The "Enhanced tuned" version is described as more like the typical V signature with less detail, and more sensitive.

 

At $40, it is very accurate yet very inexpensive, especially for a dual driver. I'm in love with it so far, even over the Moxpad.

Peter,

When you do get Moxpad and Xioami Piston (Gold Version) , please A/B them and conclusion of which you like better. I like Piston a lot because of the design and so sexy. If it is as good or similar I would to get it too.

Just make another order for Moxpad X3 Blue color for back up and at USD 22.91 with HK Post with tracking from this seller . Fantastic experience n customer service.

Havi B3 Pro vs. Hifiman RE-400

 

More similarities than differences here, surprisingly. i settled on the Sony Hybrid tips for both.

 

Lows: The Havi extends lower, and with more authority. I noticed it immediately from the main bass beat in "Satellite" from Nine Inch Nails. They are both neutral here, so if you want more bass kick, you need to apply a hefty bass boost to both models. They can both take it well. The Havi has the more pleasing low end overall.

 

Mids: Hifiman's signature mids are fantastic and really hard to beat. I feel like they might be ever so slightly boosted over neutral. The Havi mids seem to be neutral flat to maybe a tiny bit recessed in comparison. The Hifiman mids seem livelier because of this, where the Havi seems flatter. Both remain pleasing over extended listening. Both are very clear. Preferences would determine which one you enjoy more. To me, perfection would be a combined average or midpoint between both signatures. 

 

Highs: The RE-400 shows a bit of weakness here. The RE-400 dips around 1-2khz and rolls off early. The Havi reveals more detail, and seems to extend further. It doesn't seem to dip at all over the range, and seems neutral to slightly boosted. Neither set shows much sibilance, if any. Neither set is fatiguing, harsh, or piercing.

 

The winner? Depends. Overall, the winner to me would be the Havi, as it extends both lower, higher, and seems to be more neutral. They are my new go-to earphone. They just sound awesome, have dual drivers, parallel wiring (4 separate wires, seems to be a first), tempered glass, and are $40.

 

Dem' Hifiman mids though... if you love a vocal dominated sound signature, the RE-400 can really do it for you. They fall short to the Havi in everything else however, and are over twice the price.... which is crazy because $99 is a great deal for what you get here.

 

Havi B3 Pro vs. Moe SS-01

 

The harshness in the 2-4khz region that Joker mentions, which I also hate, really kills the Moe. You can cut it with EQ, but you shouldn't have to. The Havi does not have this, making it the immediate winner to me.

 

Yes, the Havi B3 pro is that good. Someone else needs to verify this. No one will believe just one person.

KZ - A1 just got it from the postman ( 12 days to arrive ) and Merry Christmas to Peter.deadhorse.gif

Awesome bass...very deep and clear ...not bloated and very controlled. Love it.
Will listen to it a bit before put to burn in.

Update on Moxpad X3 - after a nite burn in , definitely better than out of box but will let it burn for another 2 days before i give a review.

Why dont you buy from the seller i bought it from ...in fact i bought another Moxpad X3 blue color this morning at reduced price as promised by the seller to revert back to the old price and it will go for 7 days ....having another one for back up ...it is that good .

Listening to me KZ A1 and comparing with Moxpad X3 .....initial impression - will still go for Moxpad.

I will wait a bit more to see if the Moxpad's shows up. If not I'll give it a new shot from your seller. I don't really like the idea of back up IEM's since there seems to be a never ending stream of new, better and cheaper stuff coming all the time.

 

The good thing is that I've finally got some time to spend with my two Awei purchases from a while back: ES800M and ES100i.

 

To sum them up the ES800M is really really nice for $7. Nice bass.  airy and a little bright sound. It will not be easy to beat these at their price point. Should be great for gifts ore using for sport activities.

 

The ES100i on the other hand, while more expensive ($8 ;)) does not impress me that much. The bass on these are even deeper then on the ES800M's but it bleeds to much into the midrange for my taste. They're also overall darker souding. If you're a basshead and prefer a darker sound they could still be of interest.
