Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread - Page 113  

post #1681 of 4002

Neospider, Havi B3 Pro1 truly benefit from amping. There are many affordable amps from FiiO or Topping that will do the job. If you're listening straight off your phone, be prepared that the output is lower than other IEMs in the same price range. However after pairing it with an amp, you'll hear the B3 singing.

Just got my Pro-1s. I bought them as a cheap "take anywhere" pair of 'phones which would have tolerable quality....boy, was I surprised. I'm finding them very comfortable, and the SQ to be a lot of fun. I'm using them more than my other 'phones ATM - partly due to the novelty factor, a lot to do with the fun factor, but mostly because of the comfort. Definite bargain - though I do hate the cable!

Would the havi b3 pro 2 sound better than pro 1 unamped? 

post #1684 of 4002
Tbh there's no need to bother with the B3 pro2. I've got at least ten iems that's cheaper or the same price range that do what they do better.

But if you wanna try please go ahead.

The "search this thread" function and the first post in this thread is also great for people new to the B3's, it's pretty meaningless repeating that they need an amp to perform well and that the Pro 2 really isn't something special every third page.

The time for those who answer all the time is not less worth than the time for those who ask and don't even bother to do basic research.

Have a great Sunday everyone wink.gif

But I cannot recommend the pro2 unless anyone needs a back of the rows presentation with narrower soundstage and tilted bass with lack of sub-sub bass.



I had the original enhanced version as well. The Pro 2 is just less of a mess, but still not very good.

Second, are they good for prolonged listening? Regarding both sound and comfort.
And would they be a good fit for rock music?
Thanks for any and all replies.

 

1. Yes my Z2 and Iphone 4s can drive them to over normal listening levels on max volume.

2. The comfort is ok, its not on tenore level where I sometimes forgot that they were still in my ears.

3. They have quite a balanced sound signature, I dont think they have problems with any specific genre

FiiO X3 drives the B3 perfectly but my iPhone 4S can't drive it to that level unless I put it through an amp. The file you're playing does have an influence over the volume output. Heavily compressed pop music may sound ok coming straight out of the iPhone 4S but audiophile recording material does not.

Got my B3 Pro 1's last week and will be doing a full review of 'em soon. Today they received their recommended 200 hrs of burn-in and I''m gonna work on my impressions. It'll be my first real review of a pair of headphones so I'm gonna do my best. Keep an eye out for it guys! :D

Any way of finding out if HAVI is working on a successor or a new version? I'm not sure these will have enough bass quantity to satisfy my taste.

 

I think there was word on a B6 and B9 but that was months ago.

If you like bass. Can try narmoo s1.

Btw, anyone can recommend ways to wear the havi so that the cable stay in place? It just keeps coming out when looping over ear.

Are you implying Narmoo S1 is like Havi B3 Pro I with more bass? Curious for a brief comparison.

If you like Alternative(or even if you don't), take some of your time to check out this song: https://soundcloud.com/manchesterorchestra/top-notch-acoustic 

The Havi B3 does it COMPLETE JUSTICE! The mids are naturally a little recessed or the recording isn't very dynamic or other so you can turn it up some, but the vocals sound flawless on the B3. Please treat your ears to this ;)

 

Hope you enjoy! :etysmile:
