“The Road to the ACS Encore You do not often hear about ACS, an English company that makes hearing protection as well as in ear monitors. However, they are one of the few companies that make IEMs using silicone. A few years ago, when I wanted to venture into custom IEMs, being concerned about the discomfit and possible fit issues of acrylic customs, I had consulted Claire of Jaben...” --Kiats
“DOI: I don't get to listen to new gear a lot so I may not be any use at answering questions about comparisons to anything other than my own stuff (which may or may not be considered esoteric). I was (and am) a full-size hi-fi person so my tastes in this will clearly colour what I look for in head-fi. I grew up playing instruments and singing in a choir so I tend to value realism of tone for...” --Docjitters

“ "The TDK BA100: Like Beige Wallpaper, But..." ...I Like Them! I have all of about 4 hours of listening time with these headphones, but I don't think I need more to justify my thoughts. They are BA (balance armature) drivers so burn-in is not a factor. For this test I used my iPod Classic (no external amp and no EQ adjustments). Many, many different...” --SoulSyde
“TDK IE800 VS. BA200 IE800 $40-90 (Discontinued by manufacturer) BA200 $55-120 (Discontinued by manufacturer) (on Head-fi, Ebay, and Amazon) Some have even found these at Ross and TJ Maxx for $10-20. Packaging: Pretty much the same packaging for both IEM’s. If both packages were side-by-side, you’d probably have to read the labels pretty carefully to...” --aiaosu

“When i bough these i had no id'ea how they would sound. I read some reviews but it is a iem that was flying under the radar and kind of hide in the shadow of the BA200 which is TDK's flagship ( was, i think it´s discontinued ) All plastic build, feels solid but not expensive. They do have a great fit and can be used both with deep or shallow insertion and a various amount of...” --Arvan
“These IEMs received quite a hype in the forum, with lots of Canadian head-fiers saying wonders about them for the price. As I found these on ebay for 12 euros (10 dollars more or lesss), I gave them a try. The first reaction was the fit. It is just perfect for my ears. I believe it is due to the angled nozzle. They hold in incredibly well and are among the most comfortable IEMs I've...” --Mellowship
