OMG! I am innocent ! Mine was about pure love with B3
i never had problem with earwaxes tbh...just dry crusty bits n boulders...
sometimes they get dislodged with heavy bass, n smash against the filter,
just shake my head side to side, n onto the streets they go. lolz.
fantassstic track,...thanks for the link...surrogate thru my yamaha mt220..since the havi aint here yet.:P
Asian earwax is different, I think. Flakes instead of goo. And they say Turkey is the gateway between Europe and Asia. Which means Turkish earwax is the gateway between the two worlds of earwax.
Musiland Monitor 06mx with B3 is very very good.
Colorfly C4 with B3 is very very pretty.
I have C4 and 06mx.
I did not check this thread for a couple of days. I use tips from Xkdun CK-M700 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEx9TvKFQE4 Appearently, they are sold out
http://www.dx.com/p/xkdun-kc-m700-rhinestone-in-ear-earphone-purple-3-5mm-jack-120cm-cable-139352#.U53eUPl_t0Y - but maybe they still can be found on focal price, tinydeal, etc. As I was going trough my other Xkdun tips, i just this moment found out the M size tip from CK-820 has larger bore, despite otherwise being the same dimension as from CK-M700 - giving a slightly different, brighter but surprisingly not less relaxed presentation. YMMV. CK-820 can still be had (albeit in purple; mine is blue ) : http://www.tinydeal.com/xkdun-ck-820-35mm-stereo-metallic-in-ear-earphones-w-mic-p-66925.html And green: http://www.dx.com/p/xkdun-ck-820-stylish-in-ear-earphone-w-microphone-blue-white-3-5mm-jack-150395#.U53pmfl_t0Y
As I wrote in the Xkdun ( Focal price IEMs ) thread, the tips themselves are worth the price of admission.
It is interesting that for good seal I use M size tip with Havi and L size with any Xkdun - and I wear them all cable straight down.
You will know if the tips achieve good seal by playing this:
Havis are capable of quite decent bass - provided tip seal is OK and amp is up to snuff.
No exact idea, but it is a DSD capable player capable of some serious juice for headphones - and that has to come from somewhere.
I find AA batteries is a user friendly feature - as more commonly (these days) used Li Ion batteries, once depleted, have to be recharged for quite some time, whereas AAs can be exchanged for another set, giving you minimum downtime. And you can get AAs practically anywhere in reasonably civilised world - try that with exact LiIon battery type used in XY device while travelling in a foreign country...
Geek Out + Havi + Jriver = the best audio combo I own. Beats out the Dunu DN-2000 even.
Considering that I got both the GO and Havi at promotional pricing, I spent under $250 and have a reference listening setup. Not too bad.
