Well, I meant no notable lack of certain parts of the upper-mids and treble. This does not include the concept of extension. I don't really hear past 16.5kHz anyway.
That said, a lot of headphones/earphones sound like they have better treble extension due to a spike taller than the 1kHz reference point.
In any case, if you don't insert them fully you'll hear another flaw of the treble region more clearly: these are far from the last word on clarity.
Take the words of the others at heart; these are definitely not known for their treble.
I'm also more used to dark signatures than most other people.
If you want more treble presence you'd probably want to EQ it.
It does make things sound clearer and more energetic to the otherwise kind of laid back and relaxed sound:
That's the EQ I use on the go (bus/metro/etc.), but Denon audio player (iOS app as seen above) doesn't exactly let you have very precise EQ settings. Rather, touch screens don't give you the fine tuning ability. Kind of doubt the accuracy of this app's EQ but it does somewhat work when exaggerating the boosts in dB. With the stock silicone tips.
The BA200's weakness is namely in the extension. The strength in it's somewhat smoothness in sound. Clarity/detail leaves much to desire if you're heard better gears or just had a generally brighter IEM before. (My Kenwood KH-C701 totally destroy the BA200 in terms of clarity and detail, for example).
Give it a bit of a V-shaped EQ curve and you can improve things around. The sub bass can come as weak without EQ.
You can probably simply use a straight sloped line from 1kHz upwards. Depends on your tastes and music and their recording.
I don't use this EQ in quiet places though, it gets fatiguing. It's more for use on bus/metro/etc.
(P.S. to get proper bass you'd also have to get a GOOD seal on them. Sometimes I need to push the IEMs into my ears a little more, despite being practically fully inserted already).
