Sorry to OT, but mochill do you know if the Blox TM7 is out of production? I can't seem to find it on their site anymore. I wanted to buy one spare to take over my current one lest it spoils.

OK, the Havi's has been playing for about 6 hours now and I've got about an hour of listening to them.

These are the real deal!

They may not be as fun as the Gratitude's but they sure are a lot mor fun then the Moxpad's.

So far I find them to be in same league as the Gratitude's, Fidelio S2's and my Onkyo's, meaning that there up there with the best IEM's that I own. The soundstage is HUGE and both male and female voices sounds fantastic.

Easily my best purchase this year;)

Thank you bhazard for bringing them to my attention!

@IEMagnet, they may have some of that metallic in the highs that you enjoy so much wink.gif

I'm surely going to write more about these when I get some more time with them.

Wokei, don't take what I said so personally. Just joking around. I'm sorry for my comment, I didn't mean to offend you in any way.

That is awesome. Did you get the pro or regular one?

 

Retail of all those iems is/was $150-200, which is where I also think these rank. Can't beat it for $40.

  • It seems like the driver issue where the left¬†driver is producing less sound¬†might be just the Havi's themselves placing more emphasis on the right drivers with the bass and vocals, cause acoustic instruments have similar levels on both terminals. Still unsure so i will continue to burn them in and observe any change, quite convinced that this effect is done on purpose though.

 

  • Other than that i am quite surprised by the sound quality from these. Compared the RE400s, these have a thicker and smoother¬†midrange with very prominent vocals, very similar¬†treble though a hair darker¬†(which i am not particularly fond of), and much deeper and punchier bass. They also have a¬†considerably larger soundstage¬†(although the driver issue does take away from this)¬†along with very clear detail retrieval. Overall i do prefer these to the RE400 due to the deeper bass and the much more forward vocals.

 

Impression so far: If it were not for the sound imbalance, the huge housings, and the rather thick cable, i would be using this as my daily driver.

 

Living in China has it's perks, and this thread has spurred me to order 5 more Chinese IEMs from taobao, and i will continue to provide feedback on them. And they are:

  1. Moxpad X3
  2. Xiaomi Pistons v2
  3. ISK SEM6
  4. Astrotec AX30
  5. Fidue A63

 

Can't wait to see you guy's Havi reviews up soon.

I would love to hear these impressions. You'll be able to get these much quicker than most of us.

 

I like the Havi much better than the RE-400 as well. I think you may have the "enhanced" tuned version instead of the "pro" tuned version, as bass is only slightly deeper and more extended, vocals are less forward, and the highs extend further than the RE-400 on the Pro (to me).

 

Try amping them like I said before. I think it might be a power issue making the imbalance with the 4 separate wires.

Kahaluu,

In no way was I offended.. .on the contrary I kinda enjoyed your posting in a kinda sadistic way... Ahem...been telling me self every time that my last purchase will be the last one though but sad to say the brain cell don't work too good especially when age catches up and me knees are not what is used to be... So don't worry what I wrote was all in good fun... Though I have bought some dud iems and that is the time I knock my head against the wall why I come here in the first place... Oh I remember to look for a better earphone for me Sony Ericsson walkman phone but that sure didn't pan out well.

Maybe should start a thread for IEM Headphone Repeat Buyer Anonymous...

Nice to meet u man....and peter123... U wanna join?

I asked for the Pro version when ordering and got that confirmed. Couldn't find anything on the box saying something about the version though so I'm actually not sure.

How do one find out what version one have?

I agree on them being excellent value.

Don't worry mate. I don't buy things unless I absolutely want them and I often take breaks from buying. You can do it too, trust me. smily_headphones1.gif

It doesn't say it anywhere, which is a bit of a problem. You can only go by the description of what they sound like. They recommend the "enhanced" stock version by default, while the pro version is for us audiophiles and harder to drive.
