It looks good to me but again I don't think it will be on my radar due to cost.
I'm eyeing these too. Love my H3.
Hard to say from the photos but housing does looks rather simple. Doesn't look like it will hold up for many years if it's dropped occasionally.
Why is this priced almost double of H3 is what's striking me. EX1000 was priced at $499 when it launched initially. H3 at $349. Another less known sibling Ex700lp at $299 (700 is miles above H3 IMO)
I'm subscribed to this thread so I know when it goes on sale lmao
Pretty excited about this.
I don't thibk so iit will last soo much, looks a bit flimsy, Looks the pieces are not sealed well, you can see the insides almost, the H3 looks if they were sealed very well, no seams visible on the H3
housing looks even cheaper than MDR EX800st/MDR 7550
Same 3-40,000 hz frequency response as the H3, perhaps slightly better 16mm driver and tweaked armature internals. A slight refinement or a genuine breakthrough?...we shall see.
It should be a damn breakthrough with the price differential over the H3!
And it's closer to the old EX1000 price.
We need a Cn11 pre-cognitive dream-based series of reviews!
i hope Z5 is able to recreate MDR 7550/EX800st and EX1000's warm-ish side of neutral & fast transient bass.
I think XBA-H3 Housing looks way better
Warm fast transient bass?
