Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread - Page 21

post #301 of 2197
Thread Starter 

EarTip Information (04.2014) from Penonaudio: Havi started to include Senn double flange eartips (3 sizes) inside the B3 packages.

 

 

(I think they are listening us :rolleyes: )

 

 

If you haven't purchased, be sure that your Havi is from a fresh stock though ;) 

 

Any B3 (recent) buyers, please share your accessorie information with us. I am really curious about the double flange tips that Havi started to include with B3's ;)

Baycode my friend,

In your experience of source and amp matching, what kind of characteristics do you recommend for the B3? I've found the sweet spot of the KC06, and now I'm trying to do the same for my beloved B3!

Well first thing: They like the power of the source.

 

My best sounding devices are İpod Touch 4th Gen and Samsung i9100 (with Woodoo Louder software to boost the soundchip output).

 

A portable CD player like Sony D-465 sounds fantastic but I cannot travel with it all the time (also most of my archive are either FLAC or 320kbps mp3).

 

Sandisk Sansa Fuze (Rockboxed) didn't sound well directly. But last night I have paired it with my Fiio11 and it sounds slightly better than my other sources.  Also bass boost on the amp (I prefer first step) works really well.

 

If I manage to produce a line out cable for the Fuze, I believe this little and cheap combo may make wonders... (not sure for now).

 

I have checked DSD's but they're out of my price range...

 

We need some information from the: Fiio X5, iBasso DX50, iBasso DX90, Colorfly C3 users.

FiiO X3 is great with the B3's but my favourite is the Little Dot I+, epic!

If I could manage to purchase a tube for the Darkvoice, I really want to try it (was broken...).

 

But my priority is portability.

I want to upgrade both of the tubes (only one is broken). Still searching the threads for the best options... My mind is fuzzy...  Do you know this amp? Do you have any suggestions?

 

BTW I forgot to mention, I have a Shellbrook Audio Mini Head Signature edition portable amp which I mainly use at the office. Its always connected to my PC headphone out. It sounds better than Fioo E11.

 

I did contact with Drew Dunn (producer of Shellbrook Audioamps) before he runaway and managed to build a custom amp. I was lucky. You can check this thread (just check the last post from Kramer, you will understand why I am lucky): http://www.head-fi.org/t/709966/shellbrook-audio-labs-mini-head-amplifier

I received mine about a week ago, and it came with these tips: 3 reddish-black silicon pairs, 1 foam pair, 1 double flange pair. Hope this helps, I don't know what they usually ship with.

How could I forget my new toy, E12. I'm so impressed with this little amp, it's really a giant in portable size. Sounds great with the B3's.

The standard package contained the ones you mentioned. The info is new so I believe the recent buyers may receive the senn tips...

Fioo E11 is good too but I think they will like higher-end amps more...

The E12 is a couple of classes above the E11 without any doubt.

I guess you aim even higher though wink.gif
