Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread - Page 11

post #151 of 2590

Did some listening at work with the fiio x5>e11 but it got pretty noisy and was near the end of the day so didn't get much in depth listening done. At home I got my dragonfly v1.0>e11 and testing out bass boost with this now.

 

Some impressions of the bass boost is the b3 respond quite nicely to bass boost and doesn't become a really bassy bloated mess then bleeds into the mids. The bass boost with edm tracks are quite nice and give tracks some nice impact. Though even at the highest setting I wouldn't call them a basshead iem.

Thanks, hopefully I'll get some firsthand listening next week, but I don't think I'll get them till the week after

The Havi does respond well to boost. Much better than the RE-400 in that regard.

 

It'll be one of the first iems I try with my new Geek Out tonight.

PLEASE do a short write up on how they stack please. I'd really appreciate considering I'll be using the same combo when my Geek arrives. Thanks!

It sounds incredible. Everything sounds incredible on the Geek. Drives the Havi with ease.

I'm considering these and have a question. The design looks like they kind of rest in the little 'cup' of your ear, while the nozzle and tip stick inside. Does this help them to stay in place?

 

I have enjoyed my Klipsch S4s for the past 2 years, but my ears must have changed with age because they won't stay in anymore. Even wearing them over-the-ear, the seal comes loose with just the slight weight of the cable itself tugging on them, and then it's all high mids and treble without bass. I have to adjust them constantly, no matter what tips I use, and it's a deal-breaker for me. I feel like Mr. Pitt in Seinfeld when he can't get his socks to stay up.

 

I love the reviews of these B3s. It looks like the way they are cupped by your outer ear would help prevent incidental cable-tugging from loosening them. I'm not talking about snagging the cable on something, but just the weight of the cable itself as it hangs over the back of your ear down. Thanks for any input on this!

 

EDIT: Also, I was wondering if an iPod Nano (5th) was sufficient to drive them. I have a PA2V2 amp, but was curious.

On the firs page of this thread it was explained. If  you have received the Pro1 there should be a paper red dot on the transparent box of the B3's. There is no any other known method to distinguish them apart from the sound differences (also explained on the first post).

 

I am putting the photo here as well (you can see the little red dot on the box, although it seems pinkish now because of the Photoshop filters I used)

Your explanations made me think as like: They may or may not fit...

 

May be an S4 and B3 user can answer this...

 

For me, with the sennheiser double flanges, B3 stays very well on the ear (more secure than a GR07 with Jays silicone tips).

 

My iPod Touch 4th Gen 32GB drives them pretty well. No need for an amp.

Thanks for your answer. So, they do sit in that cup of your outer ear, then? I mean, they're supported by your outer ear, as opposed to only by the nozzle with the tip inside going into your ear canal? Hope that makes sense...

I have both the s4 and B3. what I can say is that s4 has better all round comfort. and if the problem is the tips coming loose in your ear, then the b3 will fare even worse in that regard. the only advantage the b3 had over the s4 in overall comfort and ergonomics is the flat cable which is relatively tangle free compared to the problematic s4. not to mention the clearly superior sound quality of course!
