I received mind yesterday. I'll just get to the point. Worst sounding iem I've owned or ever owned. What disappointment.....
Please provide context of "worst sounding". I know it is somewhat subjective but a little more detail or context would be helpful.
Yeah I'd like hear more of your thoughts in detail, if possible.
Got mine today. So far they sound quite awesome. I'll try to compare with TFZ 5 and Dunu DN-1000 later today.
How does it compare to the TFZ 5?
Hey, sorry, got too much stuff to do these weeks and never came back to this.
As many said they're quite bright. A bit brighter than DN-1000 and WAY brighter than TFZ 5 (note: I have the regular ones, not the Exclusive series). Some tracks do not sound great with the amount of treble. I have some albums that are definitely not great on H3 while quite enjoyable on TFZ 5 and I'd probably give that to mastering because those are lower-end artists mostly. They don't sound great on DN-1000 either and I love those IEMs overall. Bass-wise, I love them. When purchasing H3 I was looking for DN-1000 with the bass of TFZ-5 because I liked Dunu's sound but it lacked the engagement TFZ provides. That said, I would not mind a bit less treble and a bit more midrange in the H3 but I see myself using these 3 pairs in rotation depending on mood and songs I plan to listen to. Have no idea if Exclusive 5 sounds better than old 5 though. Kinera is probably the most comfortable of the 3 followed by Dunu because of their smaller size.
Thanks for the comparison, in your opinion do you think these are good IEMs for rap/hip hop genre especially since many say these have held back lower mids
Any particular artists/songs to check on? Given the only way I checked them out for now was google play on iPhone SE, I'd definitely prefer TFZ 5 for rap/hip hop. I'll give it a test later when I get a phone that can into EQ because it felt like my old Galaxy Note 2 made H3 sound better than my macbook/iphone. Unfortunately I'm all out of android phones now.
Maybe Ni**as in Paris by Kanye and Jay-Z. Slide by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean and Migos. I have a S6 which has a decent DAC, but yh I have ordered the H3's so I'm so wondering if I should return them and buy other earphones better suited to this genre. Especially since the Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEM is currently available.
I'd say TFZ 5 sounds better overall on both while I prefer H3's clarity and bass. It's a bit too much of treble hiss and notably not enough mid on Kinera. It's not completely awful, just seems worse in comparison. Unfortunately I'm not getting a new phone for at least a week so that's as much as I can do right now. They probably can sound a bit better with some EQ but I don't have the time to figure it out on Apple devices while at work.
thank you very much, you were very helpful
Well I guess it's subjective or the one I have is bad. However insides the looks and comfort, nothing eyes I like about these headphones. I have $25 earphones that sound better. All of my recordings are high quality. And trust me I burn these in for hundreds of hours. I was so disappointed in these, I ended up purchasing a pair of sennhieser IE800. No complaints there.
Extremely harsh and brickle. Lousy staging and imaging.
