BA200 tips thread

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Saw a similar GR07 thread, and decided to start one for the BA200 as well.

 

Other than the tips included in the package, which includes Tx100 and Ts100 Complys I believe, what tips fit the BA200?

 

Have read about people using Shure grey flexs with them, as well as modded Sony Hybrids.

 

What about others like Shure black silicones? Shure Olives?

 

Etc?

I think a deep fit brings out the best in these phones, so I'd recommend using dual or triple flanges if you can tolerate them.

 

Shure silicons and Olives fit the nozzle, but lead to a slightly darker and muddier sound as compared to deep fitting tips.

 

My favorite tips for the BA200 are the Future Sonics dual flanges that come with the Atrios.

Any other good suggestions as i am not liking the stock complies at all as there is a big mid recession and a muddier bass and overall warmer sound with loss of clarity in all frequencies. The stock duals are all dandy but i am not sure i am getting the best seal as bass just does not feel like i am getting the rich extension as in some listenings i can tilt me head back and get more rumble.

 

EDIT: I had an epiphany and while raking through my tip drawer found out that they have the same nozzle width as etymotic, meaning one thing, Ety triple flanges and so far they really change the sig but make them sound more like the HF5s with better detail and clarity. Mids are pushed forward and bass reduced. I think i still prefer stock duals so far.

Myself, I've settled for the Shure black silicones. The opening is not tiny like the soft grey flex's and it's reasonably comfortable, as comfortable as the Comply's for me.

 

Really want to try TDK's own single flanges but don't know anyone with the BA100 :(

 

I haven't tried Ety's triple flanges but yeah, the stock dual flanges sound the best for me as well. Really too bad it's so unbearably uncomfortable..

If this thread is still alive, I have used the westone grey tips, and imo I think they are the best tips for most iems and the ba200

Westone star silicones are very good with the BA-200.

Agree on the Westone Star tips. Phonak Audeo tips also work well.

I just bought the BA-200 and I think the following:
Stock silicon tips have good fit (even with not so good music isolation). Also the silicon tips let to spread all the amazing clarity of BA-200! Perfect for vocals and jazz! The negative is that these tips don't flatter at all the bass of the BA-200 which (in my opinion) is little. So if you listen to electronic or some music with more bass (not necessarily) bass heavy, you just cannot enjoy it! A pretty good solution is to replace the silicon tips with stock complies. In this case, you achieve a more bass result and a better isolation. From the other part you lose some clarity and (for my ears) not so good fit. For the last feature maybe I will be sure after some more time. These are my first impressions about the BA-200. And if someone has some better idea for the bass of the BA-200, I really would like to hear.

In the BA200 thread, they recommended the Westone True-Fit (foam) over the Westone Star (silicone)
