Review: Fischer Audio's DBA-02 - Page 296

post #4426 of 4469

My DBA-02 caught the infamous channel imbalance issue (Bass is lacking from the right side). Does anyone know if reshelling/recabling it fixes the problem? I really like the sound signature of the original (Non MKII) DBA-02 and I do hope to keep it (Its out of warranty, so not sure if Fisher Audio would fix it).

^ I think this is what happened with my pair which fortunately was covered with my warranty on its last week :D

 

 

On a sidenote, Fuze>E5>DBA02de sounds highly resolving already. Bang for buck truly mobile audiophile setup ;)

You can purchase it from TopDogHeadphones or from Musica Acoustics (you should e-mail them to buy it though). FYI, the "black pair" is the upgraded and updated version of the DBAs, called the MKII.

Ok, thanks. Why should I e-mail them? seems like topdog have them stock and ships them to Norway for 15 pounds :)

 

Are these hard to drive on portable equipment. I'm going to use with Sansa clip+ and my cellphone Samsung Nexus

No, these are very easy to drive on portable devices. I use them with my iPod Touch and they sound very good out of it, with no lack of power at all.

Garbage in - garbage out. That's what the DBAs are all about.

Is there any place that sells these at the moment?  Gd-Audiobase website is down.  Musica Acoustics continually says they're back-ordered.  Anyone?

Headphonebar has the Brainwavz B2 on sale for $99.  They should have the same sound signature.

^A steal for that price!

Thanks Gozzer, but headphonebar ships only within Canada & I am in NYC.  Anyone else?

Had the DBA2, used it for 3 mos-> channel imbalance. Tried the B2, used it for 4 mos -> channel imbalance. I gave up on these two a long time ago...moving on

Do you know where I can buy replacement triple flange tips that come with the DBA-02? What brand/model are they?

post #4439 of 4469

I have a pair of Mk IIs, still new in the package and shipping box, that I bought from Musica Acoustics several months ago. For whatever reason, I haven't even removed them from the package or tried them out yet. I suppose I should try them out first, but I may be listing them here on the For Sale board shortly, since I could use the cash, and I have a couple of other pairs of IEMs that I haven't been using much either, so keep a watch out for them.

PS - Hope this isn't a breach of forum policy - if so, I'd appreciate if someone would let me know (and I'm sure they will!)

Anyone know where I could buy a pair of these? It's out of stock everywhere I looked. Seems I'm really unlucky :(
