Isolation is very good, on par with most BA IEMs and the Atrios. I commute by multiple trains and have no issues.

I cannot see a vent hole.

I can barely remember the XBA-3, so take this with a grain of salt. The XBA-3 was very much "BA" quality bass, better than all single/duals and on par with bass tuned triple driver IEMs. There was no comparison to dynamic driver bass, little rumble, deep but not sub-bass deep, if you know what I mean. The XBA-H1 is very much dynamic driver bass, so is an order of magnitude more bassy than the XBA-3. It depends which type you prefer.


Hope this helps.


Thanks

One question, can someone compare this h1 with xb90ex? I'm searching items with punch, I see xb90, but h1 can have it with detail of balanced armature driver

Very interesting impressions so far. I am especially looking forward to other's point of view as well. If there are any more positive impressions i may just buy them because they are really cheap for the sound quality being described.

HI,

I am wondering should I buy the XBA-h1 (€70) or the denon C400 (€100) ?? Which ones do you think are better?? The denons right? Because they are dual armature and the sony's are single armature? But is the difference worth €30?

You won't be disappointed mate. I use them exclusively for EDM, Electronic, RnB and Hip-hop!

Looking forward to your impressions...

Order placed!! xD

FedEx 1-5 days delivery from MP4Nation, paid £115.20 in total. Lets see what the fuss is all about.

Btw can you give us a short comparison IE Dunu DN-1K vs Sony XBA-H3?

Good luck with them! Shame about the pouch esp. for the price. Hope the sound makes you forget the pouch and the red :)

The xba40 is a bigger phone, these are not as big as they look. plus the H1 has a better fit/shape so its a different ballgame.

Both are comfortable though.

How are these compared to Shure SE535?

Hi

I've bought a pair of xba-h1's and listened to them last night with great expections. Unfortunately they didn't meet them! I listened to them on both my MZ-NH1 and MZ-RH1 players with uncompressed material. Maybe I have been spoilt with my MDR-1R's, but the H1's left me thinking that they had over enhanced and loose bass, although they do extend way below what you'd expect for an IEM... and also the clarifty wasn't there with a lacking high end.

Do these get better with burn-in? My MDR-1R certainly did. I've left them running all day today to see if there'll be any difference tonight.

My intention is get the NW-ZX1 as a source for both my headphones. Even my MDR-E838's seem to give more clarify. Maybe I need to give it more time, but at the moment I'm considering sending them back for a refund.

Matt
