also you guys think that Havi B3 really will outperform BA earphones? Comparisons to DN-1000 are very brave so I am looking forward to it.

 

I have read all the posts in this thread during 1 day!

 

bhazard:

So if I get this right, you prefer B3 mostly, but you didn't hear pistons 2 yet?

What is the best IEM in terms of bass quality but the other spectrum is also good clarity? Is it X3 or T114?

 

How is Ostry versus RE-400?

 

How does KZ-CKW1000, KZ C3, sound? Do you think that KZ Micro Ring has the best clarity of KZ lineup?

 

Does anybody has experience with these?

Ultimate questions:

Is it safe to say that if I buy Havi B3 and Xiaomi Piston v2 do you think it will be enough for me in this thread? :)

Does X3 have something those 2 do not have?

Is any KZ earphone a "must-have" ?

 

Thanks

1. The DUNU 1000 is available at quite a few places. No need to use Taobao.

 

2. The B3 outperforms the MeElectronics A161P/Somic MH407 and Rock-It Sounds dual BA R50 by a wide margin that I've tried.

 

3. Didn't get the Pistons yet, but going by descriptions the Havi may be better.

 

4. For bass quality and clarity for the price, the Monster Gratitudes are killer.

 

5. The Ostry is bright. the RE-400 is warm. Neither have sufficient bass to my taste.

 

6. KZ iems are budget DIY models that sound much more expensive than they are. The Micro Ring sounds like a $100 earphone to me for $10.

 

7. The Edifier 290 is too boomy, selling mine

 

8. The Uldums are terrible. Still haven't been able to sell mine.

haha, I am more leaning towards less IEMS but pricier. I just got my Brainwavz B2 so I can compare the clarity to these chinese IEMs. Wondering if I want to save for DN-1000 like others, but this thread is not really helping.

 

Anyways, someone should pull the trigger for Sidy IEMs

I was going to, but the new KZ GK-GR (Spartacus) has the same features for $10 and looks better.

1. the reason I asked is that I found DN-1000 on TaoBao (or Aliexpress) for 99 EUROS! which is the cheapest I could find DN-1000. So if that is genuine that'd be great.

2. WOW that is quite statement. I wanted R-50 before B2 but I got convinced by the B2 excellent Xmass deal. What exactly does R-50 worse than B3? I would say details and speed would be the highlights of R-50 SQ.

3. looking forward to comparison

4. What is the next pick after Gratitudes?

5. if you compare them in clarity / detail?

6. so would you rank Micro Ring as the top of KZs ?

7&8, thanks for that!

 

Does X3 have something that other headphone miss? because I really like the design and build.

So t114 are not so recommended? They have good bass but the mids and highs are not so clear?

If you're in the US you can do a lot better than $71 shipped by getting the Gemini HSR-1000 version for $50-55 shipped from ebay or amazon.

I know the feeling, I had also decided to save up for the dn1000 but it doesn't seen possible at the moment.

I've got the Sidy hk1 on the way smily_headphones1.gif

^thanks

Looking forward to your impressions over Sidy HK1

jwong: actually the price on the link I posted is $50

post #745 of 7977

$50 with $21 shipping is what I saw...

post #746 of 7977

You are right, I thought there is shipping for free.

Has anybody tested KZ-C3 or Phrodi IEMs?

post #747 of 7977

Also does anybody have some thoughts about Astrotec AX7 dual BA and AX-60 triple hybrid?

Some reviews of Fidue models, except for ljoker's impressions?

 

EDIT: also found that ATH-IM70 seems to be good and for 650 Chinese yuan that's around $110 - seems reasonably priced.

The ATH-IM70 are getting rave reviews from competitions and outlets outside head-fi, so they seem to be the real deal sonically.
post #749 of 7977

I would like to know how ATH-IM70 is compared to Havi B3. I see they could be similar in sound sig.

post #750 of 7977
From what I've read, the IM70 is thicker and darker in SQ, like the M200, while the B3 is more airy, transparent, and neutral, like the RE-400.
