I've tested them with the HS3000 and they sounded excellent. But it depends on the Bluetooth version and codec. In short: BT v3 + aptX > BT v3 + SBC > BT v2 + SBC. I've made a few posts on that topic, here and there,

Alright thanks for the info.

You wouldn't think because of the smooth signature that the BA200 has that they'd sound good with edm but its the complete opposite at least for me as they've quickly become my favorite IEM for edm.  To many people put to much stock in the highs for edm when in fact the mids are where all the music is coming from.  The highs have all the cymbal crashes, high hats and thing of that nature along with some upper mid lower treble melodies and sounds but the meat of your melodies for things like trance and progressive are in the mids.  I'm not saying you don't need treble I'm just saying that it shouldn't be your main focus when looking for an IEM that's good with edm.  

 

Bass and mids are the most important aspects when choosing a good IEM for edm imo.  All the IEM's I've gone through since I found Head-Fi, the ones with detailed and smoother mids have all sound better for edm than the bright IEM's have.  The TF10 was one of the best and I know everyone says they have recessed mids but I'm one of the few that says the mids aren't recessed as much as they're on the darker side with a smooth texture and along with the crisp highs (that weren't sibilant or harsh for me)and strong bass makes them sound like they're recessed.

 

You might not agree with what I've said but that's how I hear things.

Revelation....my BA200 works quite well with the GR01s fake sony hybrids...the blue ones with foam fillings. Compared to the stock comply tips, treble is now a bit more forward, clarity is a little better, bass has a lot more umph. Isolation is better also. A fellow head-fier has been using custom tips and I can imagine it does wonders to the overall quality and isolation.

Anybody know how much these go for in singapore? I checked the website in Stereo and it goes for 229 sgd. I read somewhere that it goes for 160 so i wanted to confirm.. I'm also aware that the price did go up.. hoping that 160 was already the updated one :)

 

I need to weigh the price difference because if it's not by much i'd rather get them locally(for warranty purposes) - which brings me to my next question:

 

edit 1:

how sturdy/well built are these? I'm already sold on the sound from when i demoed the unit but i'm quite worried with the strain relief.. how does the wire age? is it an issue long term? not quite sure if recabling is a possible should problems occur with the cable because of the y-splitter stabilizer of sorts they implemented - or if recabling is possible at all with the housing design. 

 

edit 2:

can these be used for running/exercise? :)

SG$230 is US$160, you just need to do the conversion. Remember the MSRP is supposed to be around US$250.

 

Flat cable doesn't need as much strain relief as thin cable, as the extra rubber on the cable itself will provide extra strength against stress. The downside is flat cable, the bigger they are, the more microphonics and heavy they become. I really won't recommend working out with good IEM.. any good IEM.

Quick question guys: out of the dual BA IEMs, which has the best bass (sub-bass) quantity and quality, the BA200, B2 or R-50? I'm NOT asking which one is a basshead earphone. Thank you.

BA200

post #279 of 1498

I'll say BA200 with a noticeable lead. On bass only, I'll say BA200 > R50 > B2

I see.. perhaps i read wrong when i saw '160' and thought it was SGD instead of USD. T_T

 

thanks! gonna pull the trigger on these later today.. seems that getting it for a little cheaper in singapore is not worth the trouble should something happen to the IEMs within the year.. i'll take the warranty instead and get them locally.

listening to them now! i love them! :)

 

 

I'm not very accurate with terminologies and i'm not used to expressing details in sound but here are my impressions:

 

I demoed the unit with the stock comply tips and they sounded really good but now that i'm using it with the stock double flange tips, it sounds even better IMO. Lucky for me they aren't uncomfortable as some have mentioned. 

 

What i noticed immediately was the soundstage as it seems to be pretty wide. From what i remember, it seems to have better soundstage than the UM3X.

 

The bass is well controlled. it doesn't overpower the other ranges.

 

For the mids, I find them to be pretty forward but it's something that actually drew me to the BA200 in the first place.

 

I agree with how people have commented about the highs being further "behind" the sound of sorts.. it's not much of a problem for me though, i like this overall sound sig :)
