TDK BA200 - Appreciation Thread - Page 16

^ Yeah I know (and Annafrancesca already mentioned the circuit in her/his last post), but that's no exuse for its unwieldy shape. If they'd rounded it off at both ends, it wouldn't be half as annoying.

post #227 of 1374

Well I hope its not going to be to annoying.

^ Well, you can always resort to DIY measures and round the edges. But I already had the W4 with a similarly laid-back sound signature and more practical design, so I returned the BA200.

Yeah, the Y-split is annoying, but I'm thinking of getting another pair and doing some mods on it --- maybe take out the impedance thingy and change out the cables to something more practical...

Anyone using other aftermarket extension cable?

Mine BA200 send for warranty once and get the replacement unit due to it original extension cable spoil

I side no sound.

Now I am using Daiso 100 yen extension cable

I've only had them on for about an hour and they sound awesome.  So, so smooth yet still very detailed with pretty good bass response and a nice spacious soundstage.  I'm not going to say that I like them more than the e-Q5 right now but I'd say its just as good, I love how smooth and effortless they sound.  I can say for all the hype the MH1 has got'en (and rightfully so) that this is one under $200 IEM they don't sound as good or better than thought I still think its an amazing IEM for $20.

How does this compare to Yamaha eph-100 ?

post #233 of 1374

Less bassy, better resolution while remaining just as smooth

post #234 of 1374

I see, I could have tried them but I can't give away Yamaha's beautiful bass response.

Its bass was plenty for me.. I was deciding between SE215 and BA200, told my gf (at the time) it was mainly down to clarity and bass.. Went with BA200. Back home, I let her have a listen, and she went, you went with bass?

Can these be worn straight down?

 

Also, for those that have owned them for a while - how's the build quality holding up?

These are designed to be worn over-the-ears only.

I've had these for more than 8 months, and the bulding quality is holding up quite nicely - my set looks and feels like a new one.

Thanks. Not disputing your experience, but I just found this on the TDK website (link below): "Cable can be worn straight down or up and over your ear to ensure a comfortable fit." Could they comfortably be worn straight down?

Not to me.

Wanted to thank the OP for his review. I tried a pair of ER4P recently and they were good, but just not right for me. So I sold them and was checking around and when I saw that an experienced member touted these phones, I got interested. Amazon was selling them for $159 plus I had a coupon for $25, so why not try them? Well, they are great in my view. For $134, a true bargain. As someone else noted, while the latest low budget phones, the MH1C, sound very good for the money, the BA-200s are much better to me. Having both is nice too. Now, I am going to check into a BT option so I can use these with my smartphone. I am thinking the Samsung HS3000.

 

I can only use them over the ear, though. Don't see the point in wearing them down.
