Btw Screen Killer,
I would suggest you hold on your invest about Digizoid zo2.
Basically BA200 performance depend on the source you are using.
You can first using BA200 for a few day or a week.
If you prefer even more bass, on Adroid devices like Samsung Galaxy series like Note2, S3, inside their Music Player, try make use of the SoundAlive profile or adjust the Custom Equaliser or the Extended settings bass levels according to your taste. If you're on iOS devices, try go to Settings and set different music profile in Music.
I wouldn't say a lot of bass. Well it depends on the amount of bass you are used to hearing. On full whack you probably won't even get to 30% of the bass your tours give. If you are not used to bass light phones (like me) it's going to take a while to appreciate the bass.
I agree with NewForce above, don't bother until you have heard them. Unless you need more power to drive them, which you shouldn't, you can pretty much get enough bass from basic eq settings. I say this because i too went through the exact same process, expecting to get godly amounts of bass from the zo2, but it's not the case.
hi guys just received the TDK ba200.
first off lets say that i really appreciate the time of you helping. next , about the bass. its has certainly less bass then my tour.
but the ba200 has a warmer less exhausting sound. compared to the tour. i actually like it.
and i also appreciate the bass being not overwhelming but still present.
about the zo2 i am still tempted to get them. I spoke with a youtuber (totallydubbedHD) over skype and his reaction of the zo2 was very positive.
he said : "not only does the zo2 give more bass but also more fullness to it."
i would like to try that setup. i got the HTC one X now but already ordered the Iphone 5.
The Iphone 5 with the ZO2 seems like a nice combination.
The last Question for this post , what would be the next step up?
i heard that the pfe 232 , shure 535 , weston 4 are really good IEM. ( i know they are far more expensive.)
but are they really that much better?
and the difference between these IEM are quite big since the pfe 232 has 2 BA and Shure 535 has 3 BA , and the weston 4 has 4.
according to totallydubbedHD the pfe 232 sounds better and has better bass then shure 535.
