H200 sub bass digs real deep. QB2 is far behind even in texture. QB2 sub bass can be felt around your ears and at times extends to the back of your head. H200 sub bass on the other hand can be felt by your entire head and at times upto the chest.

Thinking about getting an H200

Overall, FOR ME they are overpriced phones, sounding better in some aspects(vocals) and worse in others(bass and highs) compared to my beloved GR07 vanilla/BE's. I think G'man said they seem to be in the same tier... seems legit.

The fist set had something going on in the lows that left me quite(quite) disappointed. The new set corrected my incoherency issue but the presentation is still not loved and the bass port seems quite useless after trying out some wub wub at full blast. However, eke posted the picture of the boxer as a analogy of what the port did, I had an idea of what to expect.... turns out I didn't like it.

Listening to the Ben Howard song eke PMed me, I discerned a bit of air added to vocals and instruments compared to my 07's.


Listening to that Phaeleh song, the sub-bass to mid-bass balance was better liked on my GR07's.


Listening to this vid, I perceived the 07's as closer to the detail I remember from my HFI 580's.

^OMG, ups. Lol

The improvements(where had) were too small, the losses too important, and the price of admission too high.

It also doesn't help that I was already quite(quite!)happy with what the GR07's deliver in build(has been solid), comfort(I sleep like a baby with them), design(love the simple look and finish... Love), sound(it's no HFI 580 but quite competent), and price(paid $150 for my first set(currently $130), $650 say what?).


^ I should say a mili thanks to you Unity for the hard work, time and resources you have spent on those IEMs!!! BRAVO BRAVO!!!

 

Last time i followed the thread they were making an updated "audiophile" version and I am sure it was cuz of your tireless efforts that spearheaded this change.

 

Hope they will further fine tune these and get them to where you would like. :)

 

Amazing work as always, and thanks again!!! :beerchug:

Took my xba3(w/ filter mod) and played the same test tracks (earth wind and fire) I used for the QB2 which is now at 40+ hrs burn in.

Result is in favor of the xba3 in all aspects. I couldn't find anything from the QB2 that could best or even tie with my xba3. From sub bass to treble, stage, imaging, etc...nothing! The Sony xba3 is totally in a different league.

I'm still waiting for my MH1 to arrive but based on the xba3 comparison, the QB2 may not be as good as the Mh1.

there is no way, i just got a pair of the gr07 be and their absolutely fabulous

 

i never liked eqing it alters the sound in a very unnaturally. i thought i liked the eq sound and then turning off i still find the original sound much more natural despite its flaws

 

just curious are u just just toning down the midbass are you guys doing anything else?

 

maybe its just when u bump up the sound that makes its so weird

 

like boosting treble or whatever

post #186 of 386
Always cut with EQ, not boost. (Except for deep bass, I tend to like doing that). Cutting in the 100-200hz range makes these sound better than stock.

My MH1 Livesound headset has arrived! It's currently on burn-in and I'll be doing the comparison very soon.

 

From initial listen I can already tell that the Sony is more refined and fuller sounding. My main complaint about the QB2 being lacking body/fullness in its sound becomes more apparent after listening to the MH1.

 

Stay tuned...

 

UPDATE NOV 14: First and foremost, my apologies to everyone. Apparently my gripes in regard to body/fullness being lacking in the QB2 bass and mids were caused by the wrong choice of tips. I've been using the H200 translucent grey tips with shallow insertion. What the H200 tips did was highlight the upper mids affecting the overall sound signature of the QB2. At the moment with the MH1 tips (deep insertion), bass and lower mids seem to sound full and clear.

Weird, I have both and really can't back this up. The LG sounds fuller to me.

LG aside, how does your MH1 or MH1c sound?

 

Mine is just like I remember my old pair. It can stand against my XBA 3 in resolution and fullness. To my ears, my MH1 sounds like a warmer+smoother XBA3 sound.

post #191 of 386

I find the MH1C to strike a nice balance between full and balanced, though there's something about the timbre that doesn't entirely appeal to me. The smoothness can be great or can make things too tame, depending on my mood and the recording in question.

I'll keep that in mind when I do my comparison review. thanks!

x2, QB2 sounds fuller. I think both are too thick IMO though.

Exactly, I'm not one to EQ extensively, but I find it ideal when only a specific regions needs to be reduced,, like the case in these. Once these are tamed in midbass, midrange is more forward and midhighs and treble shine, which as stated before beat pricier sets like GR07BE and S2. 

post #195 of 386

OK, after some quick A/B I far prefer the LG over the Sony. The Sony just seems smoothed over and tamed, while the LG has both bass warmth and treble that's crisp without being hot. Liking these more and more.
