If  you want to get it, quickly get it before the month ends, one week left. And you can also go there to try it out, it's always good to try out IEMs before buying.

I'm sure there's plenty of stock, I went there a few days ago at Plaza SG and they still have stock. Don't worry about that.

You can also visit ION Orchard where Stereo's current main store is (in B4 / Basement 4).

ION Orchard is it's main store, but Stereo Plaza SG is fairly near too and I'm sure they have stocks, so either way :)

+2 Definitely agree w/ClieOS... it's definitely better than the FXT90 and on par with the GR07.

 

Christmas Eve reveal: I got it for $129!!!! One of the best values I've ever gotten on an IEM.

 

If any of y'all come over to Taiwan, I'll tell you guys where to go buy it hehe.

Got it today at stereos. Amazing sound quality!  I actually like it better than the GR07, maybe because its presentation is not as laid back.

 

Though i don't understand why they design it in such a way that a extension is needed.

The tips provided are quite disappointing, two double flanges which i don't like at all, makes my ears itch like crazy. Two complies, and strangely no single flanges at all.

 

Complies all the way i geuss!

post #38 of 1397
You can buy Shure single flange if you want to. If haven't tried them myself but they should fit. The two piece cable design is mainly for those who like to hang their DAP / cellphone on the chest (do people still do that?), plus cellphone extension cable that come with mic and bluetooth adapter.

Not sure if stereo sell shure tips seperately, gotta check with them. Thanks for the info!

 

Btw, this is the largest Y spliter i have ever seen!

I just checked the website, and apparently they do have the Shure silicon tips. Sony EX hybrids are not a bad idea too!

Monster super tips?

Both of these might be too loose for the nozzle.

Oh, I don't disagree with you at all; the BA200 is a great UM3x alternative. I was just trying to make the point that dual driver IEMs somehow all sound similar in terms of body, and triple driver ones also sound similar with respect to body --- not saying that triple driver ones actually sound better, but they do envelop the sound easier. I'm not much of a number believer either; I actually like the slightly thinner bodied presentation of dual drivers more, which is why I don't have any triple driver IEMs.

 

With respect to price, I'm just merely making rhetorical "marketing suggestions" to TDK. SQ-wise, the BA200 is definitely worth $250; more casual listeners might not realize it, though.

 

 

Custom SQ is so hard to duplicate with universals. I'm starting to believe it's a pipe dream. The W4 never did blow me away. In a few years, maybe.

 

 


I must have a try for the TDK BA200 then. Reviews seems value for it's price range if in comparison with the UM3X. I do need a relatively good earphones that's not too over pricey and durable for my daily running. It looks like a good fit earphone.

For the price, the TDK BA200 is really good. It's obviously not as good compared to high-end and ultra high-end IEMs, but it is also 2x cheaper. biggrin.gif

I see, wonder if the Klipsch silicon tips would fit, those are really good.
