It's a matter of personal preference. The IE800 has a fun sound, while the BA200s have a more "mature" sound in my opinion. For these genres, I think that you'll prefer the BA200s, but again, it's your personal preference.
TDK Life on Record is a huge, very well known data storage, recordable media and audio manufacturer. In the 90s, almost every cassette and VHS Tape was manufactured by them. In the 2000s, when the DVD had begun to be the most used media, TDK started to slowly disappear from the market.

Yes, here's a one: http://www.head-fi.org/t/647014/review-hifiman-re-400-hifiman-produce-yet-another-winner You can also check out the thread about these two products, where you could find some more impressions.

Thanks for recommending me to do this, I'll now use it with Complys instead of with the stock tips, as I find the sound to be quite a bit better.
