“Copied from: http://www.head-fi.org/t/686039/cosmic-ears-ba4f-review I'm finding it hard to rate these, for the price I would give them 5 stars on every department. But I'd rather rate them, referenced with the idea of what the very best cIEM could be. The BA4f with the Ice Blue color Short History Before I started my journey into the cIEM...” --Marleybob217

The HY2 combines a dynamic driver for lows and a balanced armature for the mids and highs. This dynamic driver also delivers an increased soundstage.
