Summary: Waited two years to write this, as it has been my sole iem during this time. It lacks a tiny bit in the mids, but all else it is surely peerless in it's range.Very full emotional sound, great sound stage, will keep the bassists happy, but great detail retrieval, cohesion and sublime treble.
Summary: Fine separation of all frequencies and deep, clean bass but just couldn't get a comfortable fit. My right ear canal is smaller than the left so ultimately returned them but enjoyed the sounds they produced.
Summary: Initially I thought it was just another headphone in my collection - I will only give it a 4 star. How wrong I was! I did two things to bring it's full potential out - hybrid ear tip to give a good seal and Teac HA-P50 Headphone Amplifier/DAC to connect to my Macbook via USB.
Excerpt: I bought this in-ear headphones 3 weeks ago, i burnt-in my phone with wide range of sound. after 1 week burn-in, i can feel the unique sound of XBA-H3: + The bass of this in-ear is quite warm, clear and strong, with make me feel good with any kind of music such as: Pop, ballad, etc + The mid is not...
Excerpt: wow what a pair of ear phones... wasn't sure about spending so much on a pair of head phones but after checking out the different makes on the market i so pleased i settled on these. once you work out how to keep them on your ears you'll very surprised on the sound.
Summary: I have had this headphone now for more than 6 months. I believe I am now qualified to review it having used it for a minimum of about 2 hours a day for at least 4 months of the more than 6 I have had it. For a start, the concept of burn-in is flawed. It's more psychological than empirical.
Summary: After owning quite a few pairs of IEM's ranging from the good (shure se215) bad (audiofly af78) these are without fail the best most natural sounding i've tried. The bass is fantastic for something this size with very clear treble and a wide sound stage.
Summary: I know reviewing sound quality is very subjective, but when I first listened to these my initial thoughts were, Wow! Amazing sound for IEM's. My source is my NW-ZX1 walkman, so a decent source.
