Yes, that's how I heard it with my Rocco BA, the non mic cable took an edge off and calmed H-300. They sound more like intended to me. I can tell there's more resistance too because I require slightly more volume to achieve the same listening levels and those volume levels with the mic cable previously would be far to much,. H-300 would be leaning out by then and creating sibilance, instead they're smoother and not so top heavy upstairs.

Glad you're hearing the same thing.

Weird.  Must be that I can't tell directly through my Galaxy S4.  I can't get the Black cable to work through my amp, so I can't compare on anything better than my phone.

I was unable to notice a significant enough difference to be able to say it was in fact not placebo.

Hey again,

 

I'm looking at purchasing one of these to complement my H-300 listening: http://www.amazon.com/BRAVO-Audio-V3-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00A2QKUES/

 

Has anyone used these units or something similar? Do you think it would work well with the H-300 sound?

 

I am hoping it would help smooth out the highs and add some warmth to the midrange, but I haven't actually used a tube amp before so I'm hoping for some guidance!

Tube amps have their own unique tone so it's very hard to say unless someone else had direct experience with one you're looking at. Most of my experiences with tube amps weren't that great because they changed the overall sound too much and it smoothed out the fun too much for my tastes. It might help if you were to listen to acoustic and classic genres.

 

Tube amps also require careful taking care of and a tube change every year or two.

Aune T1 is probably the one of the best, most affordable tube amp, there is a massive thread dedicated to it, I'll be using H-300 with it in a week or so when it is my turn to review this, so stay tuned for my impression :wink_face:

Something like HM-601 I can picture sitting well with H-300 (which has treble roll off) Or a warmish amp like FiiO E10 might work  nicely, try and tame the beast within them a little. (which doesn't effect me personally)



Myself, I live dangerously and use a bright source ,  transparency levels are pretty out there. :wink_face:

Hey guys, if you already have the h300 try the comply tsx200 TS200. I've never been a fan of foam tips coz they somehow alter the treble quite a bit but on this occasion they might just be the perfect tips for the h300.

H300 UPDATE: I've confirmed it guys... after numerous tip rolling I ended up with the Comply TSX200. At first I was happy that it totally removed the peak for me but later realised that its just too smooth for my liking. It sounded pretty close to what I'd describe as a super refined Sony MH1!

 

I decided to cut the filter off from the Comply TSX200 to make it similar to Comply TS200 and alas! This now sounds like my dream IEM! Exactly how I wish my beloved H200 sounded like!

I've listened to full length albums without a hitch and only once did I hear something (a tambourine) sounding too emphasized. The H300 sounded like a gem all throughout!

  • Avicii - True
  • Daft Punk - Random Access Memory
  • Dream Theater - Greatest Hit (...and 21 Other Pretty Cool Songs)
  • Michel Jonasz - Le Fabuleuse His...r Swing
  • Earth Wind & Fire - The Very Best of Earth Wind & Fire
  • Avril Lavigne - Let Go
  • Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen

 

So guys... I don't usually push suggestions but on this occasion I highly recommend the Comply TS200 tips for the H300. http://www.complyfoam.com/products/ts-200/

If you have a pair lying around like I did (its been set aside for over a year coz i didn't like how foam tips affect the overall sound) please take the time to try them on the H300.

You won't regret it!

 

My review is coming up soon... Cheers!

H 300 vs JVC FX850 which is better?

post #175 of 622

Well guys,

 

I really tried to like the H300s but the treble spike is right where I am the most sensitive.  I worked for four straight hours trying various combinations of the cables and all the tips and just couldn't tame the sound for my taste.  If T-PEOS could significantly reduce the spike in a future version (or find a way to allow us to), I would be all over it but for now I am going to have to let these go.  Hopefully, I can find a good home for them because they really are nice IEMs.  And since I got them through the special discount for Head-Fi members, they will be even more ridiculously cheap.  Keep an eye out for my post in the for-sale forum as soon as I snap some pics.

have you tried eq on the player you use ? (either specific tone down of around 8k (fairly wide), or treble shelf)

We might try and contact T-Peos and see if they're willing to slightly retune H -300, just lower the treble a little bit, there's been to much feedback coming in about the highs, it honestly doesn't effect me as others are describing but the amount of feedback coming in is not good. I know what people are saying if they could just lower that peak for a majority they'd have a killer sounding IEM. Let me email them and see what they say, as I follow both the threads.

I don't like using EQ on my music, I prefer a naturally flat response curve from my music source.  Call me crazy but I just don't care for the affect it has on the sound or having to use EQ to compensate for a weakness in one of the components in my sound chain.

I would be willing to wait and see if there was something T-PEOS can do to these.  If they could, I would definitely be a fan of the H300s.

Ditto - fill the mids a bit, and remove the spikes, it'd be the perfect iem for my tastes
