Now in my 70's I've traded my audiophile ways in for the convenience of MP3s and flac files played on MP3 players... I realize there's a dropoff in musical info and I can hear the difference, but the convenience takes precedence, so I try to make up for it with using quality players such as Cowon Plenue players and IEMs such as the old Audeo PFE 232 and what had been my most recent phones, the Shure SE535. Having never been satisfied with the Shures but so regretful the Audeos are no longer made, I decided to finally try something from Null..... The A3H has been amazing..... My reaction to its greatest attributes are in the title, SOUNDSTAGE, PUNCH, FIT, WARMTH, AND CLARITY. Soundstage is what hit me first.... Not since my electrostatic days have I been able to experience such a defined soundstage... I'm hearing instruments and their location on the stage like I've not heard before, and discovering instruments I had forgotten were there when I listen to my old standby teest songs from the audiophile days... it's quite startling to hear even from an MP3. Of course the info has to be there in the first place but if it's on the MP3, you'll hear it like never before thru these.... And though I'm not really a bass centric listener as so many are (I concentrate on midrange where voices live), it's amazing how the A3H brings out the punch in drum lines and bass lines without overemphasizing... AS far as fit, I suspect what the A3H does for fit is not unusual for many, but when compared to the way the Shures fit in my ear, I was surprised at how easily these seal while lying flat in the ear.... Love it! And as far as my midrange, where there's where I experience the warmth of vocals and clarity is across the board.... I couldnt' be happier with my purchase... One other attribute I've discovered that differentiates these from my prior phones... It's extraordinarily exciting to hear just how much better these sound the louder you play them... That might sound ...
Came from an 11 year old UE10 TripleFi with the Lune Mark V cable. These have a very different sound signature. Soundstage is definitely clearer and instrument separation is in another league. These don't need that much help from an equalizer like my UE10. This is a keeper and feels (as it sounds) very high quality in your hands.

These IEMs sound very lively. Alot more power and dynamics compared to something like a shure 425. The separation is really good. The bass response is really nice. The bass sounds full and not too muddy or over-powering. The highs are really crisp, and it is very prominent in certain mixes, though to my ears, it's not to Sharpe nor irritating to the ears. Decent mids. Not muddy or harsh. Really satisfied with them. And they look really cool too.
Great, balanced sound. Great build quality. Beautiful design. Couldn't ask for more, and the Lune cable was a nice touch.
