I thought it was a pretty small change, if any, when using with an amp. Not worth carrying an amp around kind of small. The BA200 is pretty consistent in my experience.

Been laying off the ba200 for about two months now, and now coming back to listen to this piece of instrument again I find the sound to be a bit thin but extremely detailed.

 

The imaging also appears to be quite small. I can imagine a piano only taking up a quarter of the room, unlike a beyer can which literally shoves it in front of your whole face. Detailing is quite phenomenal. I don't see how people aren't discussing about this. Call me crazy but it's literally on par with my er4s+dynamic reshell. Though I still don't think people are inserting them deep enough. The whole time I've been using the small stock dual flange and inserting them past around my second bend.

 

 

Time to do some extensive listening today.

I agree actually about the detail retrieval. Going back to it after a hiatus also, it stands up very very well.

That's good to know. Man, thought I had some special super sensitive hearing for once.

If anyone is interested or knows of someone who might be interested in buying the BA200 V1, please check out my listing.

It's gold plated though but everytime I'm using it, I always yearn for more bass impact. I think they didn't understand me well when I called them frown.gif 

Dude wtf is that, they should have given the same one from the package!

 

Imation Singapore did for mine

Tip rolling will completely change the soundstage. I use shure medium silicone tips. And I used a soldering iron the make the diameter of the hole a bit bigger, about the same size as the bore of the iem. This greatly increases soundstage width and depth, and also increases the bass quantity. Not to say more or less bass is better. But the bigger soundstage is very welcome.

Did anyone try changing the dampers as suggested by Rin Choi? I using the BA200s with Viper4Android and JoeBloggs BA200 IRS, sounds awesome!!smily_headphones1.gif
post #1134 of 1374
I now have dampeners to change out, but am just waiting till the wax guards come off lol. I'll post here when it happens lol.
post #1135 of 1374

How do you exactly remove the dampers and what do they look like?

post #1136 of 1374

They look like very small cylinders in the ear hole.  Etymotic sells a tool, or you may be able to use tweezers

Is it the the filter that can be found by the extremity of the nozzle?
post #1138 of 1374

I assume so.  I do not have a BA200, so I am going off the filter in the Etymotic ER4-S.  I admit Earhole was kind of a lame description tongue_smile.gif.  Yes the outer tip of the nozzle.

So the three things are all the same: filters, dampener, wax guard?
post #1140 of 1374

A wax guard to someone on security detail at Madame Tussauds.
