They have a new version though, which may be what people will be getting.

 

From their Taobao page:

 

Buyers Please Note: B3 is four dynamic headphones, which is double-sided dynamic headphones. The latest version of the B3 combines ie80 in low and loud sound field and layering tf10, the overall sense of hearing powerful bass, tenor vocals solid, mellow treble, the overall sound of the sound field broad, rich in detail, strong sense of hierarchy, dynamic and strong shake!

 

It looks like they boosted the bass a bit, upped the mids, and rolled off the treble extension, a la RE-400 style. It is probably still great, but now I need to find out the differences.

 

These are the ones I purchased a few days ago: http://www.ugomark.com/taobao/view/id/36050814188

 

Any idea which ones they are? I couldn't make it out. Just ordered blindly. :p

I'm getting the Pro. Then I'm getting the Enhanced. Like bhazard, I want to try them both.

I "think" this might still be the pro version in a different link. Translation in the title mentions "professional", but not in the listing like when I bought them. It doesn't hurt to ask the Taobao agent to order the pro one.

 

I think they got rid of the "enhanced" one, and tuned it better in the newest version. I'll have to see.

There's no way to distinguish between them from packaging alone right? It's like the Vsonic GR07 all over again... Curious to which one I'll receive, and if I can identify by ear alone.

Nope, no distinctions on the box.

 

As much as I like them improving the tunings, at least mark what they are to make it easier for us to tell.

Am really tempted to pull the trigger on those Havi B3 and Xiaomi Piston 2.0 but I have VSD1S and fake IE80s on the way already, lol. You guys distracted me with this thread all day and it's been a really fun read, thanks for that :)

The aliexpress IE80 knock offs have a lot of tips and sound good, but the HAVI and VSD1S blow it away. The Piston probably does too.

 

Once you start, it becomes very addicting trying to find the latest and greatest.

This is the link i got my Havi B3 from. I think it is the pro version. The operative word being 专业 which means professional.

Pays to read Chinese. I trust bhazard's impressions and suggestions.

Well just got two IEMs today; the Fidue A63 and the ISK SEM6.

I've had about an hour to play around with the Fidue A63s, and Joker's hype for it seem to be very well in place. It has a microdynamic driver, and many aspects of it remind me of the re400. Comparatively, it has a neutral signature, with a slight emphasis on the bass, slightly more than the re400s. Detail and soundstage are very similar, and the vocals feel more forward. More impressions after burn in.

The build is very solid, despite some reservations i have with the strain reliefs not being securely fastened to the body. The box is well designed, and has a smooth and minimalistic feel to it. Accessories are rather sparse even for a 50 USD earphone. Comes with two pairs of biflange tips and 3 pairs or single flange tips, and a rather tiny carrying case.

Overall, i'm rather impressed by the quality of sound from this headphone, definitely a solid buy for the price.

I'll post the ISK SEM6 impressions up later, It's not going to be pretty, the moment i took it out of the box it practically broke apart.

If this is true and fake IE80s are gonna be a dissapointment I'll sell them and buy Havi instead, simple as that :)

 

Anyhoo, do you have a favorite over-the-ear headphones from this thread? I have Maxell Retro DJ at home but I need one more because I travel a lot between two destinations and over-the-ears are a lot more comfortable. I'm looking for closed headphones around the price mark of 40-45$. I'll be feeding them either with sound from integrated Realtek soundcards from my PC/laptop or with Fiio X3 once I get a hold of it.

Just got the message from ugomark that they are shipping my Havi B3. They did charge me $9.00 for shipping, but that's ok. I'm pretty sure they will be worth it. If they can match my Piston 2.0, then they will be an excellent buy.

The housing looks just like the ID America Spark IEM. At least from the photos.

If you can stretch to $50 I think it will be hard to beat the Takstar Pro80 for a closed can at that pricepoint. You can get them for $48 including shipping from Ugomark (shipping might be a little higher than stated but should not add more than $5 extra). If you're in North America you could aslo check out the Gemini HSR1000 wich is a rebrand of the same headphone.
