Nice to see Penon including tips most of the B3 users found good - bit I am sticking with my tips from XKDUN CK-M700. Works best for me.
One interesting anecdote. A week or so ago, I was demoing B3 Pro (Old version) to a friend - and he gave a most interesting remark. I used crosfeed and appropriate bass lift with "enough" power on some VERY high quality material. At the limit of what is possible.
His remark was : I would be afraid to use these .
Why? On most "normal" equipment, be it speaker or headphones, there is onset of distortion /compression/ signs of "something wrong" if you are nearing/approaching any SPL level that is approaching pain limit and should not be listened to any appreciable amount of time.
Havi CAN take it without those signs - so please beware how loud you use them. Particularly long term - but prior to any switching of sources etc, make a habit of turning down the volume a second nature - if not already there.
Two days ago I monitored a soprano/organ concert recording in a small chapel ; despite the diminutive size of the chapel, organ does go very deep and loud. No problem for the B3 whatsover - but by now it has probably 400+ hours behind it.
