I think the BA200 fits great and sits right inside your ears perfectly but the cable from time to time and mainly when jogging falls off but I don't use the chin clinch though.
I generally don't have much of a problem. Pairs of shures and klipschs I had a few years ago fit fine, as do a pair of 8320s and ckm 500s. The R-50's memory wire was the problem for me -- really irritating. I think it would've been fine otherwise -- unfortunately I liked the sound quite a bit. The problem with the MH1C's for me is the flat cord + the j-wire don't have enough give for me, so it forces the bud out of my ear. I do use my IEMs in the gym at times, and other times I'm forced to take them in and out, so ease-of-fit and need for mobility is key for me.
Right now I'm looking at:
The thing I most want is 3-D imaging + soundstange, but I'm afraid that the BA200s will be too warm for me (frankly I'm not wild about the CKM-500s) and that the fit will be an issue. The problem is that I haven't seen an IEM that's been described as leaning analytical with 3-D imaging + wide/deep soundstage that's in my price range.Edited by wilsonx - 11/29/12 at 8:22am
