I am... till my ANV arrives. Should be here next weekend. Then I will take EDSE, Piston2, T-Peos Popular, ANV, R35 and try to make short review/impressions about differences (if work duties doesn`t get me).

Source matters very very very less. If impedance is not high and if the volume could go to desired levels, it should be fine. I've heard edse and find it v shaped.
It isn't that bad. Only bass and upper treble levels are bumped. Just my thoughts (!!).

QUESTION
I love my havis but find them too expensive for on the street, train etc
Looking for a kz (or other brand) iem with good isolation, balanced/neutral sound and that @$7-8. Cheap.
Needs to be a bit near havi sound, but acceptable for that price of course! I expect not too much. Eisen recommended me ed3, wokei recommended pl50 but that's outside of my reach!

Please help this poor student. Ed3 way to go??

I think source really DOES MATTER.   Why should I spend ~ $900 on Astell&Kern if it does not matter? LOL ...

Well, on top of performance, that beast is just pretty as #uc#!

Well that's your vision smily_headphones1.gif I've never found a difference in sources and there's few reasons sources should sound different but hey this is not sound science so let's keep it with this!

Ontopic again!

Those are my all time favorite tips that fit my ears like custom IEMs the bore must be the same circumference as my ear canals, seriously.

They are Lunashops red/gray medium size tips. I've never really felt the need for either these, or large Sony hybrids. Both can be purchased for dirt cheap on Lunashops.

@Wokei
If it wasn't for you and @Charliemotta I would have dismissed the KZ brand. It ended up being one of the awesomest experiences I've had with this hobby.

I even sent a pair to @twister6 and he was impressed as well! That dude knows good sound quality!

Oho I might order some smily_headphones1.gif
Have many eartips at disposal but who doesn't want to experiment, especially at this price, haha.

Wow, which one did you send to twister6? He's one of my most trusted guys around here.

KZEDSE
post #3120 of 16249

KZ EDSE sounds SICK!!!  Tried it yesterday with AK120ii - blew my socks off (well, actually I didn't have socks on, but if I would - they would be right across the room :p)

 

Really appreciate my brother-from-another-mother @Hisoundfi hooking me up with these :D  For under $10 (or something like $8, right?) these have an amazing build quality, top notch chord, and excellent sound.  A bit of low end enhancement, but it's tuned very tastefully.   Giant killer all the way!
