So you have never heard the first DBA-02?

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.

You chief :)

Sold my DBA-02v1 when I had your K2 MX and removed the filters.

Any1 changed the connector on these, easy/hard done? My DBA-02 is working poorly because of a glitch in the connector

Should be the same as any other cable.

Lots of past tense going on!

Can the DBA-02 be worn cable down instead of over the ear? I think this is my deciding factor on these.

Only if you put the right driver in the left ear and vice versa

Seems to work pretty well the normal way...

I agree. I always like putting the cables over my ears, even when the IEM isn't designed for it. It really reduces microphonics. I don't know how bad the microphonics are with the DBAs with the cables straight down.

Me too; the DBA definitely has increased microphonics with it worn downwards, but I will sometimes wear it that way at my desk since I'm not moving around much.

I've replaced mine (broke the original through my own carelessness) using a straight Neutrik plug like this one. I used some wire insulation pulled over the DBA cable for the internal crimp and to act as the strain relief. Right angle is also available and doesn't require anything over the cable as strain relief. Both are relatively easy to solder.

Another one rocking to these DBA02 mkII 

 

These do not sound as bright as many reviewers say the old ones are so I say these may sound different from the original ones.

 

Pics in post and review coming soon here!

You guys should hear the DBAs with the Tascam DR2D Portable Digital Recorder (~USD120). With the Tascam, the DBAs are taken into another level of sound. It's not treble forward anymore and the sound SO balanced with plenty of clean bass with more impact. The Tascam-DBA combo obliterates my FuzeRB3.10-DBA combo :P

Something sounds better than a Sansa?  Impossible. tongue.gif
