Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread - Page 36  

post #526 of 4001
@Wokei

We had a discussion in the KC06 thread but I think it's appropriate to move it here:

You know I've got about 40 IEM's, all of them below $150 and most below $75.

Quite a few of them are good sounding IEM's but non is perfect. What's pretty funny is that I see no correlation whatsoever between price and sound. Yes I can easily see price difference in build, materials, accessories, packaging etc but not on sound.

Out of all these IEM's there's only one that I found truly special, my precious wink.gif, and that's of course is the Havi B3. It's soundstage, presentation, separation and natural sound are unique from what I've heard on any IEM so far. I find it to be outstanding with most of my preferred music and hence LOVE. Only drawback is that I think that they lack a bit in the bass department to be a perfect all rounder but I think that I can use my other 40 something IEM's when I need that bass wink.gif

Thanks to Baycode, Anlogsurvivor, Bhazard and others that also think these are special I know I'm not crazy wink.gif

Edit: Damn tablet, managed to post to early, should be OK now though.

These iems are already very clear sounding iems. Because of curiosity I have just removed the metal grille of B3's.

 

They sounded even clearer after this. Highs didn't got harsh in my case. Only clearer but not sibilant.

 

But, for my ears they sound more natural while the filters were on their place (not 100% sure).

 

Sound spectrum or characteristics didn't change in general (as far as I can sense or perceive). Its clearer now. May be bass got some more impact too. Not sure... I have to A-B...

 

Anyone who wants to get more clearer highs can try this. But for me its not needed. I will be putting them back (after cleaning).

 

I wouldn't directly advise doing this to somebody though... I have also seen very tiny bit of earwax accumulated behind these metal grilles (which I was worried about).

 

After shooting the grilles back side with my macro lens I was surprised (disappointed)! Front side of the grille seemed clean by the naked eye but the back side were covered with a mixture of ear canal dirt (I think theses are wax, dirt and dried sweat).

 

Even though I am a clean person -who takes shower everyday and cleans his ear-canal with 2 separate q-tips after each shower- I couldn't believe what I saw :blink:

 

I am sorry to share this wax and debris. But I believe we need to learn... I couldn't be able to see the grille in this detail. Thanks to my 105mm macro lens its giant now and I can understand whats on (or in between) the grilles...

 

After cleaning the grille's putting them back in their place will be tricky, because I have removed the 'double sided tape kind of adhesive' which holds them in place...

 

FYI.

 

Havi B3 Pro (metal grille removed)

 

Havi B3 Pro metal grille from the front: You may not be able to see any dirt when these filters are in their place.

On this photo you may see something underneath them...

But the black background (when these are on their place) eliminates the detailed vision of the grilles.

 

Havi B3 Pro metal grille (back side of the grilles) and earwax accumulation:

Once you remove the grille and turn its back you will see the reality (you have to magnify or take a macro shot)

 

No need to remove the grills.. Just clean them!

So peter, you own havi, tenor, and KC06.  And prefer havi the most?  Is the havi super detailed and clear out of the three?  How is the bass?

So dear arvan I have clearly written and post photos of the both sides of the grilles. How do you suppose to clean the back side without removing??? I have cleaned the front side until that day I remove them. And I only did this cleaning 3 times and with special care. But even if you did or didn't clean the front side of the grille very gently, there is a possibilty that the wax can go beneath. FYI wink.gif

Somebody in the other forum says they trust you, so I thought I see whatchugot.  Lets see if Scandinavians have more than hot chicks. :eek:  Lets see what kind of sound taste Scandinavians have.  ;)

 

Wait a min.. what's going on here, there are two Scandinavians in here.

Up until this point, I have managed to completely ignore the B3. Not now! You definitely got my interest.

 

I know that Bhazard is really enjoying his KC06A's. I'll have to look to see if he has compared them to the B3's.

@waynes world

I don't think he actually did yet but he mentioned a page or two back that the B3's can hang with the DN-2000

Btw ,sorry for not quoting but my tablet doesn't seem to like that feature.

Oh, and one more thing. People interested in the Havi B3 Pro 1 should:

A) Have a decent amp

B) Not expect a lot of bass
