Thank you for good wishes.
I am more than just happy with this purchase - getting an IEM that can be used for monitoring live recordings requiring only bass correction without the need for the pesky EQ in the treble at reasonasble price is rare indeed.
I *might* find bass adequate if used with a "straight" amplifier - the Meyer DIY amp with crossfeed engaged is itself bass light-ish and requires slight bass boost in order to be neutral again. But after the AKG K 1000 and Stax Lambda Pro ( with diffuse field equalizer when necessary ) the typical "in the head" soundstage by an IEM, even if that is Havi B3, just will no longer do. Havi B3 with crossfeed is the first IEM I have heard that can achieve sufficiently "out of the head" soundstage.
Havi B3 took longer than usual burn-in in order to start sounding good in the bass. Anything loud and low was problematic at first. It still is not a "subwoofer" - but can at least hold its own in the bass now. All this in the context of classical music - some electronic music lover/basshead may well be not satisfied.
Havi B3's gratest asset is timbral accuracy and freedom from listening fatigue - one can work for hours at an end without dicomfort of any kind.
