Something about these smaller companies that simply give you more wack for your buck...

I think you might be right. Your in for a thrill with the B3's, they're really unique.

So I've noticed :wink_face:

 

You've got a lot more experience than me with expensive IEM's so I'm really curious about your impressions of the B3 Pro (old version).

I don't know anything really, it's all a false internet persona, just get my info from google. wink.gif Plus how could I not join the Havi club? Most of the NX1 crew are here! But for now curried sausages are calling me so I'll see you soon with Havi in hand.

You wouldn't be the first :D 

 

My (second try) NX1 will be in any day now. Enjoy your sausages :beerchug:

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated :D

 

No need to hold out on the best IEM you will ever had own. DO IT!

Not owning Havi B3 makes me feel so

Would love to see a comparisson between the B3 and the new hyped TT1-E.

I`ve already bought the TT1-E, so just for curiosity :beerchug:

I have both, Havi B3 wins in SS, Imaging, comfort, natural voices. T1E wins in bass quanity by huge margin, extended treble.

 

I don't get fit with T1E wearing down, so I have to swap channels and wear it over the ear.

 Cable is the worst thing in the world. The ribbon cable is stiff and kinks very easily.

While the cable is bad, the worst one in the world still belongs to the Sony MH-1.

I prefer thin rubber cables to flat cables. I also can't attach a clip to flat cables.

with the recent spate of increase in attention in the B3, here's short reminder/summary for those who are only just receiving them:

1) tips matter. don't give up if the sound doesn't impress you straight off with the default tips. experiment a little. currently, the sennheiser double flanges are lauded by the majority as the best tips

2) amp the little beast. it is necessary to extract the full sonic capabilities of the B3. the power requirements of the B3 are unlike any IEM. the sound is generally acknowledged to be decent at worst, good at best when powered straight from something such as an iPhone. in line with the great pricing of the B3, the most highly rated budget pairing is the Topping NX1.

3) this will be controversial for skeptics, so read with discernment: give them a lengthy burn in period. from general feedback, the possible noted changes (keeping this intentionally vague) are: improved bass, 'opening' up of the sound, and smoothening the harshness of the treble (this one reportedly takes long hours to achieve)

4) in all things B3, trust in Baycode
