Not weird at all.  In fact I imagine many would agree with you.  (I myself have not heard the 530's though).

I sort of wish I had enough money to keep the ba200, but i've decided to go over the ear...  It would be an awesome out and about set with great quality for the price.

weston 4?

shure 535?

and what is better about the (next step) iems?

So I tried to fight it, but broke down and ordered one. I should have Friday and will compare to the TDK dual dynamic IE800, which I am really loving immensely (once I can pry the 1964 EARS V6 out of my ear canals ... lol)

I'm looking forward to hearing how they compare to the IE800 because I was looking at getting a pair.

Yes, the soundstage reproduces by BA200 are amazing.

Try use it to listen to songs ripped from CD like Karen Knowles Moonglow, you'll more amaze to what TDK BA200 can do.

Source Inventory
 
apple iPod Touch 4th Gen 32GB ios 5.0.1 jailbroken with redsn0w 0.9.10b3
Sony Ericsson X10 sensuous Wolfs TW Gingerbread 4.0.4s (Android 2.3.3)

 

Now using MP3 only. Flac should be sound better (24bit 192kHz)

DAC also good but all these need high budget

I've never been that big on flac, personally I think a good 320kbps recording sound about the same as flac.  Now WAV that you can tell a difference only thing is they take up a lot of space, one of my EDM mixes takes up about 700MB's

Wait, I thought FLAC was lossless and so sonically exactly the same as WAV? 

post #433 of 1373

They are lossless but WAV is the best lossless I've heard and I can tell the difference between WAV and Flac but with Flac and 320 MP3 its really not to big of a difference imo.

I hate to disagree here, but unless you are playing flac files with some player that has eq or processing adjustments you can't hear a difference.  It a technical impossibility.  :-P  Flac is lossless like a zip file is lossless.  No information is removed from your audio file when it is in flac format.  When you play the file the player decompresses the file or "unzips" it back to its original state as it is played.  So the audio you are hearing IS the WAV audio in that the digital bits and bytes are identical.  So any difference you hear must either be in settings or perceived differences because you thought they were different. :-o  :-)

Well all I know is I can tell a difference with WAV that I can with Flac, most Fac files that I have are in the 400MB to 500MB range and the same album or mix in WAV is around 700MB to 750MB so your telling me the extra 200 to 250MB dosen't make a difference.  All I know is I've taken CD's that I have and made one Flac and the other WAV and WAV sounds better, Flac sound just a touch better than a 320 MP3 but WAV sound much cleaner and clearer to me.  I don't know all the technical jargon that goes into it but I can hear a difference and its not the players or the EQ as I don't EQ, well maybe the bass but that wouldn't change anything.
