Yeah, surprised with a lot of big driver Asian made earbuds. Even here in the states, 15.4 and 16mm drivers are too big and give many fit issues.

Came across these.. My experience with similar micro HD driver units from JVC are very good... Looks interesting i think! Any inputs?

Maya makes good stuff, although it is a little pricey sometimes.

 

I ordered this one (E19) a long time ago, but the order was cancelled. At $25 now, I may re-order it. Very sleek look.

   Tell me about it. It looks gorgeous, but not sure how it might sound. It seems to have some sort of technology which directs the sound straight into one's ears instead of having it resonate through the ear canal. Resonating frequencies can have some unfavorable effects if I recall correctly. And you guys get it there for $25? These things are slightly more expensive around here (about $28 average) but that doesn't really mean much. I'd really like to hear your impressions on them if you do happen to buy them. Oh, and don't forget to have it face off with the Pistons. We need to crown the $20 king in due time.

would be great if there was an index of which ones have online stores that will ship to US...

JVC have been using the "micro HD driver" for a while now. They place the driver right in the nozzle. My experience is that it is very easy to get a good fit. And since they have a pretty large vented chamber the soundstage are rather good and they sound airy. I like it! The ones i have are the JVC HA-FXC51 and they are bloody darn good! Hence my interest in the E19

Has anyone ever exchanged an Audio Technica iem before? My right earpiece has a static(y) sound coming from it when it handles highs and I want to try to exchange or repair it. Should I go about this through CDJapan or ATH?

Which is better between Havi B3 and Xiaomi Pistons?

post #611 of 35472
Don't think anyone here got both yet......

My Havi's will arrive tomorrow and the Piston's should not be far away so we'll know soon. I also believe that bhazard has the Piston's on the way.

I seems as if the postman didn't bring me my Havi's today after all. They should arrive any day now though.

 

I got the KZ A1 and my impressions with them are a bit diversed: they have a terrific clarity for the price and the sub bass is really deep. With music that has a lot of fast bass I do find the bass to be a bit overwhelming. Some exaples: listening to more accoustic music whit good bass like Ben Howard, Cowboy Junkies or the Abbey Road Sessions with Kylie Minouge they are really really good, not only for their price. Listening to Robyn or Depeche Mode on the other hand it feels like I get bass a bit all over the place leading to litening fatigue pretty fast. To sum it up I think the bass is a bit slow and if there's a lot of midbass in the music it bleeds togheter with the subbass. 

 

I also got the Moxpad's eventually and although the are pretty amazing for the price as a whole package I find the to be a bit boring. I actually prefer the A1's so far, but as usual YMMV.

 

Got the KZ2014 and the SIDY HK1 on the way as well (and the new Piston's) but they will not arrive for two more weeks at the best.

I totally agree with on KZ A1 with regard to the quality of the bass ...the attack is not very on point especially with music like Depeche Mode especially when playing Master and Servant or People Are People (12" single)....a bit overboard ...yes tiring but it sounded excellent on Eagles Hotel California acoustic version.

Whereas for my Moxpad ....i find that they are not suitable for fun or upbeat genre ...like edm or dubstep but to me they sound best for 70's rock like Crosby Stills n Nash ,America but sure like them with Led Zep . Still Moxpad sound bettèr than my Soundmagic PL50 hands down.

Overall I still think they are good buy and can't complain for the price paid for it.

My oh my .....yes n waiting for yr impressions on yr new KZ n Sidy....cheers

Most boosted bass headphones are like that. You'll sacrifice accuracy, but you can cut it with EQ to your liking.

 

The Moxpad is a slightly more accurate, less bassy kz-a1 with a detachable cable. Both are excellent for $10 and $20. Just waiting on the Pistons now.

 

Nothing touches the Havi though (pro version). Nothing comes close in value or accuracy. I have the extended version on the way too so I can compare sound differences.
