For sale - Brand new - Hippo VB (variable bass) IEMs.

Similar to Croosroads , Hippo is a brand by Jaben -Singapore.

Price : Rs. 3000 shipped. Rs. 2850 for local pickup.

A new one costs 79$ (~3.7k).

Ebay listing possible at 6% extra.

Warranty : These do not have any official warranty since I got it for free with one of my purchase but I will provide 3 months of personal warranty from my side. If anything goes wrong , will refund or provide you with a similar /better IEMs.

*The VBs come with 3 different variable ports which alter the bass and help you tune the IEMs sound .You can read more about the VBs in this review by BF1983 on TE.

Few more reviews :

In Ear Matters: [REVIEW] Hippo Shroom and VB

CrossRoads MylarOne Bijou 2/3, Quattro, Hippo VB, Hippo Boom Review

The sound :

These have a very balanced and neutral sound with variable bass that can be tuned as per the listeners liking . Should be good for bass heads as well as non-bass heads :p Also these are on of the few sub 100$ IEMs which come pretty close the RE-0 sound . Frankly speaking RE-0 has slightly better detailing and transparency but these have a lot better bass than RE0.The bass goes really really low.

more info /comparison with RE-0.

These are one of the best universal IEMs you can get if they suit your taste. Buy it only after going through the reviews. :)

For those who want real bass (not muddy bass or mid-bass hump), these are one of the better choices. As a non-bass head, I simply love the bass extension and the amount of details it manages to dig for me in those frequencies. Bass is clear and non-intrusive and the focus is mostly on sub-bass. Of course, there's also the wide sound stage. As long as it's properly burned-in, sibilance should not be an issue.

So, a free bump for you :)

PS1: D2000? Damn!

PS2: 2 months gone, 22 months to go - for completing my 2 yrs hiatus from buying headphones/IEMs. Till then, I am just gonna read and drool. So, get those reviews out quick :)
