Are the Havi b3 p1 still the king of soundstage for budget IEMs? I am considering getting a 2nd pair after my 1st pair suffered from channel imbalance.

I find the Alpha & Delta D6 have much better soundstage (depth, width, and instrument placement) than the B3. The D6 is easier to drive than the B3. The D6 has a pretty unique sound signature. It might not be to your taste. Check out reviews here.

The B3 is still a solid performer at its price level.

I will look into these, thank you! Still a shame that you can't buy the Havi anymore though.

Apparently there are still 50 units left in Taobao shop. I used a local agent to order them, 2 boxes. So now there are 48 left. Might wanna give it a shot. I'm still waiting for the order confirmation/arrival at the agent's warehouse.

Get your powercards out. It's morphin' hoardin' time.

I'd say give it a shot, you never know. Fingers crossed they don't tell me "sorry, we can't buy for you, here's your refund".
Dayum. Wouldn't that be a spit in the face.

Paste this in your local agent: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.7195193.1997079397.20.vD0L76&id=36052562138&abbucket=12
I'm not holding my breath, though. No news yet from the agent, said they will get back to me when the Havi store gets back to them.

Kinda depressed that my 846s isn't an upgrade/sidegrade in sound, just build quality and ruggedness. Soundstage size is a letdown, treble volume is a bummer. Couldn't even find a similar sound of the Havis even going up to the price of the 846s.

Goes to show that money can't buy you everything. The best surprises all happen in the mid-rangers and entry-levels. I'm gonna try the most neutral Earsonics model next, but nagging at the back of my mind: "what's the point anyway"?

So... I've been doing some research and I assume S-EM6 V2 should be neutral enough. I'd rather someone could help compare the sound if possible. Anyone here has the S-EM6 V2, care to share the sound sig similarities/differences, treble loudness and soundstage size, separation, etc?

Por favor..? :triportsad:

I just made a reply on the old thread sorry. But as what I've said there i've missed these guys. Anyone know where I could purchase them again? No one seems to sell them online other than that one that sells its with damaged cables. Or can you recommend any IEM that sounds like the B3 Pro 1? Below 100 USD would be nice. Cheers!
