Yeah I'm not trying to bad-mouth the H3. I think it performs well in its own price bracket of $300 or so, competive against others near that range, like the UE900 and W4R, and SE535. I just thought the really terrible opinions of the IE800 was odd or saying it was worse than the H3, cuz my experience with the IE800 has been jaw-dropping impressed, beyond that of IEMs in that price bracket by a good margin. That's all.
Well, several people have found that the ie800 really needs some power to shine. I find that as well and am currently enjoying it quite a bit. I'm certainly interested in the z5, though. Thanks to those who have provided impressions.
