Yesterday I went to a concert held at the Canytelis (Kanlıdivane) historical place in Mersin-Turkey.
It was an open air performance by Bülent Ortaçgil at ancient city of Canytelis.
This year is the 13.th year for the Mersin International Music. Fest. http://www.merfest.org.tr/tr/
Below photo is for giving you an information about the place. On the middle top you can see the stage:
This is a wide panorama showing you the natural pot-hole (sink hole) on the middle. According to a legend,
criminals had been executed by throwing into the sinkhole during Roman times: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanl%C4%B1divane
Prison on the right, stage is on the left:
First trials with Zoom H4n recorder. Its steadied on a Gorillapod.
Mufflers were used for protecting the mics from the dust only. I did not used the
H4n's own mics. I preferred a set of Roland binaural mic's instead.
Monitoring the record were done at the office. ATM, with me was some of my HP's listed here:
Koss PortaPro (75ohm resistor and Kramer modded, recabled),
Koss ProDJ100 (with ATH M50 pads), Fostex T50RP (inner cup modded, recabled) and Havi B3.
I have tried all off them directly out of Zoom H4n:
This is the basic setup. Zoom H4n, Roland binaural mics and Havi B3 Pro1's:
So why am I sharing this: Some pages back I have written something about the lifelike sound reproduction capabilities and great soundstage of B3's.
Also @Analogsurvivor shared his valuable record monitoring experiences with his B3's, many many times... He is a professional sound recorder so I trust his experiences more than myself.
I am just an hobbyist for sound recording...
I can write many many pages about the sound comparisons.
But there is no need...
Because Havi is the most lifelike, most real or true to source IEM/HP of all. I feel every bits of the atmosphere!
You can listen to music who's recorded by someone with your different HP's/IEM's, but you couldn't be sure which HP/IEM is real Hi-Fi.
In my book B3 Pro1 delivers this. A true to source, accurate, hi-fi iem...
