They'll do fine I think!

I think so as well. I recently bought the Total Recall (2012) soundtrack that has some serious LFE. Enjoyable to listen to with amped BA-200.

What amp and source are you using with your ba200's?

I thought the impedance stabilizer made an amp unnecessary 

post #1086 of 1498
This amp is "necessary" for IEMs business is kind of misleading. Except for very limited few IEMs that are more difficult to drive or those that have very low impedance and wild impedance curve swings, you don't need a separate amp if you have any even remotely decent DAP.

Now whether or not there is "synergy" or a clearly audible benefit from a possibly cleaner signal and its value proposition is up to an individual and YMMV. The BA200 is pretty stable across sources fwiw.

Okay, how's this?

Dude, I respect how you responded to my post. There's nothing wrong with your first post.

Honestly I meant to write something like that in the SD3 thread 2 days ago but couldn't post anything till last night and I just threw it in here because of it was more current. =/

What differences do you hear with the BA200 with the amp you have vs just out of your DAP? Notice I don't know your setup/rig. smile.gif

I haven't A/B'd it. Probably because I've been enamored of a new iPod classic affixed to the Leckerton and it's been glued together for a while. (my old white and silver iPod from 2005 was starting to go bad.) I'd say that BA-200 scale up well as I recalled them sounding from the iPhone 4. Not so much affecting tonality; it's just that there's a sense of energy behind the music when amped. Could by psycological. Listening to the rig makes me want to amp my home theater, currently running on the amp built into the receiver. I now sense it as inadequate.

Could someone tell me which sleeve is better? Thanks

The star tips have a more narrow inner opening than the TDK tips. Not sure if this could harm the sound quality...

 


 

 

it seems that the green ones do the trick!

The Westone Star green foam, Shure PA757S and the Monster long supertips look solid.

The most interesting to me though are the Shure EATFL1-6 because they are the only ones that really change the 3-4khz area.

Way back in the day, I used the small dual flange Klipsch ovals, but they kept falling off the stem and staying in my ears. I liked using the small dual flange Klipsch ovals on the ER4 as well.

yes but they knock down the treble so not very good tongue.gif

post #1094 of 1498

Actually based on Rin's data I'll try Comply T130+33impedance. Green star tips make it flat DF, but that will be too bright, the set-up I mention make it more OW.

Lol knew that was coming. The bandwidth is still there more or less, just less emphasis. It's still the most interesting choice IMO. I didn't say it was the best choice. tongue.gif
