B3 pro 2 is crud in a cup. It's like night and day. The best way to put it would be comparing the Sennheiser CX300 to the Sennheiser IE80. Or IE800, though not quite that extreme.

Compared to what amp(s) and with what source(s)?

Compared to my E6, E7, my X3, and directly through my Sony Z. The E11 has beautiful synergy, and with the bass boost on 2, provides aural Heaven.

b3 pro 1 and HRT Musicstreamer II+ did a wonderful job here :) If only stage was my first priority :/

Greatly added depth to the stage of any live recording. Not something that I am used to.

On B3 Pro I vs II...

 

I have the B3 Pro I, but have never heard the II. And maybe I'll get flamed for sharing an opinion without having tried the latter, but here goes: an observation sourced from my experience of the Pro I, and from my reading about both the Pro I and II here on this thread and elsewhere. As far as comparing B3 Pro I and II, it's not just a matter of sound signature and how easy or hard they are to drive. There's another crucial element. The Pro I is a truly unique IEM that many people (of all kinds of different musical tastes and preferences) find to be amazing. The Pro II, according to most opinions, is nothing special at all, and is even a poor performer according to many. Maybe some more senior people on this thread who've tried both can weigh in, but I just thought this was important to point out. One of them is run-of-the-mill, the other's extraordinary.

Let me repeat..

Yeah, LP11, I was going partly off you in posting that!

The Pro 2 lacks detail retrieval, has a thick sound, rolled off highs, decent but nowhere near transparent mids, and the bass is south of punchy, and really lacks the definition, articulation, and clarity one might expect. Interesting, but if I would give a shot in the dark comparison to two other IEM's I've heard or spent time with in the past, I'd say they sound similar to the Sennheiser CX300 or the Dr Dre Beats. That type of commercial presentation.

For the last two days, I had a most pleasurable work : monitoring the recording of a 15 member string orchestra during the rehearsals and final concert yesterday evening.

 

With Havi B3 Pro (Old Version) - it was spooky how close the sound with IEMs came to the real thing heard live. I trully enjoyed it - every moment.

The actual use of b3s with NX1 and apple 4S has a very good effect.The sound is very clear and strong.

No Bass boost on the NX1. Disappointing.
