TDK BA200 Thread - Page 86

post #1276 of 1498
The Weston foams look like they'd be similar in make up feel of the Shure olives or maybe the jays foams?

The Westone star tips were not good. They added sibilance.

Yup star tips aren't good for These at all. The true fit foams are like a hybrid of Jays foam and Olives

Hi all,

 

I'm looking to upgrade from my Sony XBA-1, and my research has pointed me towards the BA200s (amongst others).  My major complaint about the XBA-1 is that it is lacking in the top end, making many things sound muffled to my ears (cymbals, voices, guitars, etc.).  I wouldn't call myself an analytical listener, but I definitely like the top end detail.  They are also a bit bass light, but that is a much smaller issue to me.

 

My question to those who have used BA200s, how would you describe the treble and bass?  My reference sound signature is the Sony MDR-7506, being flat with a leaning towards being bright (even if artificially so).  I'm not looking for something that bright, but its a good way for me to judge as I don't have experience with many other IEMs.  Also, how would you rate the comfort?

 

Other IEMs I'm considering are the GR07 and XBA-3, so if anyone can compare them, I'd greatly appreciate it.

        Worst... first impressions... ever.

Is there a reason why the BA200 are suddenly so cheap? And suddenly available at Ross stores everywhere?

 

Did TDK release a new IEM or something?

 

 

Because I've been debating between the BA200, GR07 MK2, SE215, Westone 3, etc.... and I noticed that the BA200 are only $100 on Amazon... why so cheap suddenly? I'm a bit suspicious...

It's probably people who's trying to flip for profit. The same thing happened when Radioshack was selling the V-Moda M80 for $40.
