I'm bouncing around my IEM collection, and this DAP makes even the Pistons sound better! This is the best sub $100 DAP I've ever owned, and competes on a level playing field with all my former higher end DAPs from Fiio, iRiver, and HiFiMan.

 

That sounds like a killer deal, where did you manage to pick it up at the price if you don't mind sharing?

Haha that made me crack up! Keepin it real I see :P  Oh man that immediately reminded me of this:

 

 

Running dem street corners and hustling (not really lol)

 

 

Putting in my Havis for the first time I was expecting something super clinical and analytical and that I would hate it. But to my surprise there was ample bass and warmth. It feels like I am seeing a whole new side of my favorite songs and I guess I am not the basshead that I claimed to be because I am def loving the havis more than the VSD3 (but they are both epic!)

 

The only annoying thing is getting a good seal. Was a piece of cake with the VSD3 but I am still trying but to no avail with the Pro 1. I hope I can find a decent sealing tip for it soon.

I think $100 is the regular price for the FiiO X1.

Keep looking for those perfect tips for you're Havi's, it's worth the effort;)

wow that's not a bad price and looks pretty good too! I am enjoying tip rolling and trying to find that perfect seal, that's half the fun ;)

Anyone here bought these, as of yet?

 

I took a chance and bought these for only 128 RMB (roughly around $19 to $20 US dollars). There's excellent reviews on these on 'taobao website' and sure seems to have similarities with the GR07's.

 

The reason I bought these?......Get a load of the frequency graph and specs!

 

Similar to GR07's you think?

 

I would never know. :(  I don't own the GR07's.

Here's the link.....

I've been using the stock foam tips with the havis's (or maybe not stock, but penon gift?). Seem to work well for me and very comfy. Want to upgrade to comply comfort tips, anyone tried 'em with the havis?

So far after a day with the X1, I've got some short observations. I've rotated all my IEM's, and the three that best synergize with the clarity, soundstage, and black space provided by the X1 would be the Havi B3, Xaiomi Pistons 2.0, Zero Audio Tenore and Doppio. The IEM's that tend to struggle the most, and deliver sub par sonics with the X1 straight plugged in and with amp are the TTPOD T1e, Sony Ex58V, Meelectronics M9 Classic, and VSonic VSD1S. None of the mentioned sounded great, and I think it's due to the lack of soundstage and imaging ability. The X1 likes soundstage, spacing( black space), and imaging, and delivers it with HD clarity. Each of those aren't know for soundstage, and this weakness becomes glaring listening to any genre on the X1. Shame the T1e sounds so rough and gritty. Ordering those RE-300 to put to the X1 test. More thoughts and observations later.

Just pulled out my old Fidelio S2s and tried them out with the X1. Never had them sound this good out of any portable I've tried, the details, the speed, the highs! I think I've found my favorite pairing for my X1

Yes, check the Havi thread.

Well done! So far it's the Tenore and B3 for me.

Hopefully, those Chinese reviews are accurate. I checked out the reviews for these only several weeks ago with a count of only 15 reviews. But, just recently checked the taobao website again and the reviews shot-up to 196 reviews. Something must be good about them.

OOT :

 

I'm a late comer to audio stuffs, just found out about the hifiman he-300 about a year ago, but keep postponing getting it

 

Decided to get one recently, but turned out it's discontinued and my country's dealer has it sold out already

 

Tried to asked local forums for a used one, but no luck yet :(

 

 

=====================================================

 

So anyway,

 

do you guys have any recommendation for a headphone similar to the he-300 ? Haven't tried it yet, gonna blind buy it, but from various reviews it looks like it's right up my alley: open, fun sounding, good bass, warm-ish, smooth, euphonic  :D
