Review: Fischer Audio's DBA-02 - Page 292

post #4366 of 4469

Finally got this back from repair and I gotta say, I've kept this headphone through everything for a reason. It is lovingly balanced. Little bit of everything: fun bass, clear mids, sparkly highs, pretty good soundstage, great comfort, build quality is a bit lacking but when a $160 pair of headphone sounds better than $300 pair (IMHO this is easily better than Westone 3 and UM3X). I listen to this over my HD600 sometimes even.

DBA-02 MK II stock arrives at MusicaAcoustics in 2 weeks. According to Dimitri, the price of it will be higher too...

 

Sorry if this has already been posted.

Anybody has the MK2 yet? What is the difference between the two versions?

Oh I hope the "DBA-02" on the side of the iem doesn't look that large or cheap! Any photos of the actual thing itself?

as far as i know they aren't released yet, so no photos

FA representative said on local forum that cable would be the same as in Oldskool'70 model, and overall sound signature could be a bit less bright due to different body size

Drivers and filters are the same

Don't worry, it'll rub off most likely.

Flat cables? Eek... I have flat cables on my BA200, and they're definitely overrated... I guess I'm keeping my "Mk I"... Less bright signature is welcome though, as is that much more robust looking strain relief.

I received confirmation last night from MA, new MKII is now in stock shipping fast worldwide

No one has heard it so far, as far as I can see from the forums

Got it in my ears now! Lovely sound. I wonder why I didn't go for this when it first came out. Reminds me very much of the CK10, though a little less bright if I'm to be sure, and a little more laid back. The square cables are a bugger for me and I'll have to find a cinch, but otherwise, love love love.

Rumour is that the Mk. II is less bright than its predecessor... those square cables are ruining it for me; otherwise I'd immediately purchase them.

Heya Chief. I sold my pair last year and bought it back just tonight :P The treble is really to die for. (MDR7550 is my bass to die for and well I think the UEsf5v2 is my mids reference hence the reshell). Will let my kid use the DBAs :P

Which did you sell? And for what reason? And, who's chief? The CK10 is perfect top for me, but these DBA-02 MKII are very very nice.
