sensitivity is 125 db and maximum input is a paltry 15 mw. the k3003 is very efficient. any smartphone or dap can drive it to ear piercing levels. additional amplification is not required.

but that doesn't mean that any smartphone can drive it to great sound!

The difference in SQ with K3003 using my iphone 5c as opposed to my Caylx M is night and day in favour of the M (however with my iphone 5c it is using mp3's max 320kbps, and with my M it is either flac or mp3 320kbps).

It's very easy to drive, but it sounds even more amazing with a high end converter.


it would have to :wink:

turns out  i couldn't wait until tomorrow , so i asked them at thepost office if i could take it today and they probably saw the pain in my face and they let me have it

all is well that ends well - so,so true

i will be back with some impressions , coming from the (kings of value-for-money) RE-272/600 , i will be quite strict with my impressions
 
 
edit : i like what i am hearing , they seem to have the great highs of the re-272  and the nice mids/bass of the RE-600

no complaints whatsoever , i will enjoy them some more and see how they compare with my other iems , buying them for 700$ they are not 2-3 times better than the 272/600 , but i knew this since the law of dimisnishing results is merciless in here

it will probably only affect the weight/fit , the drivers are the key parts here i think sound-wise
