How the hell are these so cheap there?:x

Dunno. I wouldn't have thought to look there in a million years but someone started a thread about weird Ross overstocks on headphones and they were at the location less than five minutes from me. I guess I'll have to stalk Ross Dress for Less now.

This must be the deal of the century. If I saw that price anywhere I would've cleared the shelves.

You might have more success if you post your requests in the Ross thread linked above.

Just got the BA200 used and both of the double flanged tips are uncomfortable.  The comply tips that it came with are messed up so I couldn't try them.  

 

Any recommendations for more comfortable tips that don't sacrifice sound quality?

It took me like 2 weeks to warm up to them. But, here's something that could help:

Original sound analyzed:

A ton of other tips for the BA200 analyzed:

Maybe see what comes closest to the original frequency response.

Holy carp! That's one hekuvadeal! Costs less than buying one BA.

 

Nice find, too bad I'm nowhere near a store. Not even in the right country.

 

Hope you guys are enjoying it... if not I'll buy it off ya lol. I can use some spares for stupid projects of mine.

You could try washing/soaking the tips, they soften a little.

I think with repeated exposure to (rubbing) alcohol they would soften as well. I haven't tested this out yet, though the store demo in Japan tends to be nice and soft.

But the deep insertion definitely takes a bit of getting used to.

The Shure olive foams are very comfortable and so far are giving me the best sound. Nice sparkly treble.

Are these better in comfort and sound compared to the stock comply tips?

 

What model are the stock comply tips?

I don't have them with me right now, so not sure one comply model for stock but they are just as comfortable and sound is similar, with maybe the Shure's a hair brighter. The issue I have won't the comply is I have to squeeze them to insert and wait for them to expand. I don't have to do that with the Shure olives.

According to ClieOS review it is the TS100 medium and TX100 large. I'll confirm tonight, since mine is a newer version and doesn't have the split cable from his review.

Going by Rins analysis, the new Westone true fit foam tips are the best, acoustically, they actually expand its bandwidth a bit. Runner up tips are Shure Olives, ER6-18c and Comply T130
