which is better for big classical music...Orstrickes or Havis? 

what about vocals? 

 

Without any doubt for me: the answer is Havi.

Can't go wrong with either.

 

The Ostry has the slightly more prominent bass and treble, while with the Havi you can pinpoint where each instrument is playing from.

very surprisingly, the sonic performance of the comply t-400 was EXACTLY the same as the sennheiser double flanges that i have been using. to make sure my ears were not deceiving me i put one side as the comply and one side as the sennheisers, and switched them around, and still found little sonic differences, if any at all.

in terms of comfort and how the B3 is supposed to be flush fit, i suppose the DF are still the better choice. however, this is just food for thought, in case anyone prefers the foam material, or needs the slightly better isolation!

Interesting, I found the comply pushed treble back and made them less forward like most foamies. But yeah both tips sound real great.

Answer to the original question - Havi B3 ( Pro,  Original Old Version ).

 

Providing B6 is B3 with a bit more bass, a bit smoother treble and being less power hungry while retaining all the other virtues of B3 - THAT would be awesome.

Hard to say - it became my go-to-everything headphone, so it is receiving at least 5 hours active listening a day. Safe bet would be 300 + .

 

At the moment listening to the famous FM station Radio Študent - their transmitter is approx 7 km from my home, so it is pure analog FM - sometimes the lack of money to "updowngrade" to digital is an audiophile's godsend. Every now and then, they air superb Koncert Radia Študent ( Concert of Radio Student , concerts live direct from the studio, everything still analog - by anything but BOF ( Boring Old Farts ).) You can bet my recorders are not sleeping then...

 

The most appropriate description for the Radio Študent would be the same as the title of their longest running show called Razširjamo obzorja (Expanding Horizons ) .

HUGE upgrade. The clarity and soundstage are greatly enhanced over it. Think of an in ear Mikros 90.

Hello, I just bought these this morning :)

 

I was just wondering if any of you can compare it with the Zero Audio bassos and tenores? I was torn between these 3, but I finally decided to buy these when I read from some post that it is better than the gr07 which I used to have.

 

Which is better in terms of soundstage and details?

 

I just want to know if I made the right decision :). Sound stage and presentation and detail retrieval are very important to me. Will use my alcatel scribe HD as source but planning to buy an X5 in the very near future. Any input will be greatly appreciated!

The real problems -in terms of soundstage- are the height and depth on gr07's. It is a very wide sounding iem. But the -comparatively- shallower other 2 dimensionsare the main problems for the soundstage. On the other hand B3 excels on these areas in a perfect way. It was written many times... So all I can say for soundstage: it is not only better than gr07 it is the best iem I ever had.

Detailing is better on B3 as well.

The only wish I may have is the sub bass body on gr07 could be on B3. They both go wery deep but the body is slightly larger on gr07 (first produced batch with the old cartoon packaging).
