yeap its a separate piece although its above the plastic housing and thus doesnt seem to play a role into keeping the two plastic housing pieces together.

 

i have put it back on but at times it gets off now that is unglued tongue.gif

 

it happened due to the design of the housings. you tend to move the housings with your fingers at near the end of where the cable sits due to the small factor of the housing themselves. otherwise you dont get a grip.

 

 

on the rumble side i said that comparing to my CK7 dynamic drivers that is. not to a BA comparison tongue.gif. it maybe that i am still used to the dynamic driver dynamic signature

impact and rumble with my CK7 for sure

 

 

now i will try with my BA 200

 

 

similar to my CK7 although the bass is cleaner and smoother. surely you have impact and you can feel it. less bass distortion with the BA 200 than the CK7

 

 

if you want to test the subwoofer this is the right track

Could someone please verify that he can hear this tone?

I can hear it but according to the FR by Rin the drivers stops at 18Khz. How is this possible?

I try to tell people the BA200 has a very capable low end. Glad you like biggrin.gif

It's the most bass I've heard without hurting overall clarity.


About the track Central Plains. I listened to it on everything but the ASG-1, which I'll do later but don't think I'll get a very differerent result. Here's why:
I ran it through a spectrum analyzer and like I said, it's a buttery smooth bass tone, slowly rising, vibrating, and slowly falling mainly in the 35-40hz range with a bit of undertone reaching to 25hz and with the beats at 50-60hz. Nothing crazy. And except for one slight rise of a few dbl across the bass at 5.29, once, there's no change in the bass line for like 3 minutes up till just past 6 minutes. And that's exactly how I hear it. It's an ambient track. It's not meant to rumble your socks off, too smooth.

I feel rumble with the BA200. A bit more overall bass quantity with the XBA-4 but nothing drastic. I get more texture on that 35-40hz rumble with the Heaven V actually but less overall quantity as its much more focused.

Maybe look into the Atrio mg6? That's supposed to have very strong subbass. Not a BA though.

I hope that helps. Or have I misunderstood?

ok scratch that. Now i realised how the FR graph actually plays out. Its not that you cant hear it, its just really really low so doesnt have an effect to the overall tonal balance. I always thought that the end of the FR is actually a complete cut-off according to the FR graph tongue.gif so that you couldnt hear the tones after this! rolleyes.gif

No, there's nothing wrong with the data, and BA200 is not the kind of IEM that can output all the information in the audible frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

First of all, check your equipments' harmonic distortion, see if it introduces a harmonic distortion. Then screw Youtube's lossy codec and download a lossless sample here: https://soundcloud.com/rin-choi-1/19khz-sine-1dbfs (Make sure you DL it, as the steaming doesn't properly play the signal)

BA200's effective frequency bandwidth is only up to 16 kHz relative to 1 kHz in a 10 dB tolerance, Period. Still you can definitely hear it, since it is just a simple sine wave at 19 kHz. At 19 kHz, BA200's output drops down to -35 dB relative to 1 kHz, which indicates the frequency range is not part of BA200's effective bandwidth considering its overall spectral balance. With complex musical components present, anything at 19 kHz is as good as inaudible with BA200.

^^ good post with good info.


Also, fwiw, I gave Center Plains a listen with the ASG-1 and it was much of the same. A little more rumble in general and a little more weight behind the beats centered at 50-60Hz. Nothing drastic.

i cant get phonak tips in Malaysia and it's expensive to ship them over T.T any otehr alternatives? would shure se215 tips fit on?

post #986 of 1373
Their sound is kind of tip dependent, I've noticed. Maybe the new Westone Star tips? Has anyone tried those?
post #987 of 1373
thank you, even more interested in comparo with xba4
post #988 of 1373
No probs. Between the BA200 and XBA-4? In regard to anything specific or just a general comparison?
post #989 of 1373
I never know by replacing the filter it's sound so good again.....advice change the filter every 4-6 months once u saw your filter from sliver colour turning to black it's time to change ^_^
