Wow that does sound scary.. I have a pair of H300 right now but don't have to the time to listen to them yet. Hopefully they will not exceed RE272 by that much. RE272 on Ortofon tips is already the threshold for me. Even way surpassing TF10 treble.

Preliminary testing today out of the box without any burn in reveals that the treble spike around 8Khz is really quite prominent. Hopefully burning in can tame it. Bass is exceptionally wonderful! Beating the ASG2 at home in sub bass.

Really?! Well, let's see how it puts up against the AS-G 2.5 soon to come. How do the highs compare?

Highly unlikely seeing as the highs are produced by a BA driver.

Comply Tx 500 seem to work best, as they have the added wax filter which helps tame the treble spike. You lose a tiny bit of detail but the overall improvement is worth it.

Guys,

 

My Comply TSX-200 arrived today, and I tried to fit them onto the H300. I did the right side and it was fine, but when it came to the left side this happened:

 

 

I was very careful and didn't use excessive force.

 

The thing is that I haven't even listened to them properly yet - I've been waiting for the tips and they've just been connected to the amp at home getting burnt in for the last few days :frown:

 

So I would say to other H300 owners - be careful, it looks like it's just glued on together and not very well (hopefully mine is a one-off incident)

 

 

I've emailed them asking for a replacement pair, hopefully they respond positively.

Has anybody else ever had to get anything replaced from these guys? How's their customer service?

I've come with a simple way to 'kind of' tone down H-300 brightness/treble by adding some foam pads found on earbuds.

It's working for me quite well, but mostly I'd been experimenting for you guys.

See link for info.

Moblyn on Head-Fi here does respond fairly quickly though I'm not sure whether he's the right contact person for your case. I just opened my H300 today too and was using doing tips rolling too! Scary..

The filter on the nozzle itself seems removable? Probably able to do a mod by replacing the filter? It looks to me that it shares the similar filter mesh as Hifiman RE272. What's your take on it? I've got no experience in modding haha.

I'm pretty sure that meshing/grill is just stuck on the end of the nozzle, if you take it off sure you could vary foam thicknesses and sizes to absorb some of the sound. Like Sony do with their IEM inside the nozzle. But you probably couldn't replace the meshing/grill easily unless you have spares. What I've done works, it just absorbs some of the highs and adds a touch of warmth. After you put the foam on, the tip pushes it back and tucks it away. I will add a photo in a sec and edit it in this post.

Edit: Picture of the earbud foam installed.




And this is what you need:

I'm not saying everyone should run out - buy H-300 and do this mod. tongue.gif

More for the owners who want to tone them down. H-300 is already 'pretty bright' so doing this in no way muffles the sound, it actually adds some thickness and warmth. I guess you could trial and error with two foam pads or different thickness pads. I will say it's working for me as H-300 was fine on the Rocco BA but a little too bright on Tralucent T1 from DX50.

Anyway, goodluck to you guys!

Thanks for the suggestion! smily_headphones1.gif I'm running it out directly from the DX50. To me, actually I'm quite okay with the brightness and treble level haha. Will definitely try the mod to see how it can affect the sound. But with rockbox on DX50, cutting down the treble and brightness can easily be done.

Has the ASG-2.5 been scheduled for release? There was some controversy over at the ASG-2 thread regarding the legit of the news. Excited about the ASG-2.5 too! :gs1000smile:

 

Comparing the highs of both ASG-2 and H300, i would say that the highs on H300 is definitely more prominent. ASG-2 highs and treble are meant to be a little dialed back though i can hear a slight treble spike in the regions of around 7-8Khz too. But not as high as H300. Treble wise on the ASG-2 is smoother and less fatiguing than H300. But the treble on H300 does not really bother me as i pretty much love both lows and treble. Vocals and timbre wise ASG-2 takes the lead. I do find that the H300 do, at times, sound slightly artificial and unrealistic which maybe attributed to its upper midrange. 

 

Will be doing a comparison with ASG-2 and RE272 soon after my H300 has settled down and with more listening time! But as much as it is, the H300 is a wonderful phone! :beerchug:

post #268 of 577

I finally tested my H-300 this weekend and they sound better than the H-200. I do not noticed any spikes, but I am using the Comply TSX-400 and the Copper and Silver cable from my H-200. However, from close observation you can see some glue around the silver ring. It looks like they glued pieces of the metal together.

Cool cool! Thanks for the comparison :) I have confirmed with Aurisonics that their shipment of ASG-2 to Korea was the 2.5 version. It is coming to me as we speak! I don't think it has been formally introduced by them but getting an ASG-2 now will bring you a ASG-2.5 and I think it's fair to assume that the previous version will be discontinued because they told me it was a revision, not a new product all together. They told me it is "retuned it to be a bit softer and less fatiguing...while not sacrificing anything on it's professional quality." The first thing I will do I compare it with the H-300. Wonder how it will play in price/product value against T-Peos'.

Woo! Thanks H20! Never even thought about doing something like that!
