Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread - Page 94

post #1396 of 3583
Initial impressions:
Using iPod video and iPhone playing lossy mp3 320kbps as well as some ALAC.
Tips: small tips for the black with red stems.
I detect a hint of sibilance, bass is a bit boomy. Mids are present and don't seem recessed.
Instrument separation is amazing! smily_headphones1.gif
Isolation is ok.

With double flanges: I can't seem to get a very good seal.. Bass is there, less boomy and appears faster though has less body.
Instrument separation is just amazing.

White medium tips: a bit between the two..

Again this is with about an hour into listening to them.

Glad I pulled the trigger with these.cool.gif
Was auditioning the westone w2 and um1 a few weeks back.. But thanks to the thread took a chance with these instead and i'm happy and satisfied with the havi's.biggrin.gif

Thanks to peter and baycode and the invaluable impressions of peeps in this thread.

Sorry I did not elaborate, it's like around those frequencies you mentioned on one side connected straight to my iPhone 4S. I'll check on other sources and report back later. Thanks n05ey

I think I just reached my iemnirvana :)

 

Havi b3 pro1 + dx90 (Lurker FW) + Topping NX1

 

Bases were not that strong before while retaining the airy atmosphere. Neutral it was, neutral still. And I love it :)

 

Çok iyi oldu bu!

One more question!

 

Are the Havi basically flatter than the Tenore and harder to drive? :tongue_smile:

 

I also have the GR07 first verison as another point of reference

Strangely enough the imaging isn't quite as precise with DX50 unit, so it might be in conjunction with the Hisound and Havi synergy.

 

Do Havi and HS Studio V have great synergy?
Can HS drive Havi at fuul potential?

What do you mean as "flatter" ? They are harder to drive. Their profile is similar in some ways to gr07 but definately larger.

Meaning in frequency response :)

They are close to reference Tenore in fq response but Havi is slightly flatter IMO.

Yes, Studio V and Havi B3 pair well together, I think I like it more than DX50 now.

 Separation between both earphone and player is clean. The Hisound players have a specific house sound, when you listen to an earphone you're partly (more than usual) taking in the Studio as well, really pushes through to the earpiece. I was listening to Cassandra Wilson last night with Havi quite late while laying down , I tried many other earphones, some cheaper, some more expensive, none of them produced this song / albums deep natural atmosphere quite like Havi B3 and Studio V.

Havi B3 reminds me of a GR07 a little bit, the naturalness and timbre just give off a specific vibe which is excellent for laying down absorbing music and ambience.

The soundstage is impressive as well, really spacious and 3D like, make some of my other gear sound narrow and compressed.





They're simply a very good earphone, Baycode is right on the money.

@Wokei

Congrats on your order friend, you will really like the Havi B3.

I was wondering when you would come around on the Studio + B3 combination. This Havi B3 train is like dominos...one falling after another.
