“ These were my first real earphones, and I bought them entirely because they'd been spreading like a plague on a forum I used. Upon first hearing them I was disappointed, but over time they grew on me, and until upgrading to the ER4, they were a firm favourite. Some of my friends couldn't get the fuss, nor understand why anybody would spend a hundred bucks on iPod earphones, but then again...” --BBBS
“ These were my first in-ears, and since owning them I've had the Ultimate Ears Triple Fi and the Klipsch Image S3s. I'll be comparing the ER6s to these. I remember the Etymotic's sound being very warm and natural, absolutely never harsh sounding. You could throw it the hissiest, most cymbal-laden music and it would sound wonderfully dark. It really had a...” --ledhed2222
“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
“ "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
“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

With a stylish look, the headphones feature a three button inline remote that's compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch. The inline remote lets owners control playback, adjust volume and access phone functions. Along with producing great sound quality and comfort, the headphones...
“ First off let me preface by stating that I bought these on a whim. I had read many things about Etymotic's penchant for accurate reproduction. The initial impressions I got from these were a mixed bag. First off, I love the isolation factor, putting these on in the middle of a crowded communal area was like stepping into a library. I tried the various silicone...” --Exarch
“First impression, extreme clarity without being harsh, very bad cable design, people said ER4 lacking bass, either they are are lover of Aurisonics or they didn't get the insertion right with ER4s Even with P to S adaptor, still deliver great bass. fast, precise and great texture. And one of the deepest bass I've heard coming from BA driver. -Sound Overly compressed/brick wall record sound...” --darkinners
The Live Tuning model is designed to intensify live recordings, rock and Latin music. It is compatible with high treble sounds and enhances ‘live’ music for an immersive music experience. The earphones in TDK's CLEF-P series feature the same high-quality aluminum construction that also adds to the overall ruggedness of TDK's design. Sound wise, these models come with an...
“ I love these earphones! They are amazing. For the price of $100, you can't be any more happier. Some people may say these earphones don't have too much bass. But personally, I like the amount of bass in these. There is enough that will satisfy you. Trust me. One negative is the nozzle. It is pretty thin. It seems like it might just snap...” --ashinyforehead
