[REVIEW] TDK Life in Record's EB950, BA100, BA200, and ST700 - Serious Business. - Page 4

Nice review. :)

 

Any chance the EB950s are suitable for EDM, mostly Trance?

 

Also, a seller on Amazon has them available for £24.99. Wonder if they are genuine...

Trance? I'll say yes as EB950 is pretty easy going and versatile. It is a bit on the fun side of things but it shouldn't matter for Trance.

 

I have not seen any fake TDK so I'll assume it should be the real deal.

Ok mate thank you!

At the moment I'm in-between the Rock It R50s and the TDK EB950 or TDK IE800.

Wonder which would do the job better...

I'm hoping the place where I bought these will consider the extension as part of the device and replace it because it's a pain to use these while travelling without any extension.

 

One of the two drivers in the right side of my BA200 went out over the weekend. These things sound great, but I'm concerned about quality control issues. They do need a better cable. Anyway, I will give TDK credit for jumping right on the issue when I called them Monday about it. The faulty earphone is already on its way to the American headquarters in Mississippi (yes, you read that right ... lol). So we'll see how good the warranty service is in a few days.

I had no problems with mine at all and I've never heard of that being a problem with others either so I think you should just get them replaced.

Hmm... Now I wonder if I should go for the TDK BA200 or the Rock It R50s.

The BA200 if you want a warm and smooth sound and the R-50 if you want and more analytical signature.

I guess it's gonna be the R50s then coz I like to analyze my music and hear every detail.

Does the eb950 have driver flex? And how does it compare to the meelec a151?
post #55 of 62

I'm loving the EB950. I was a tad bit skeptical but found it for 10 bucks at Ross and thought it was worth a try. Very nice 'phone and will likely become my new fav for my gym rig. Dig around your local Ross. Some have even found the BA200 for like 25 bucks as well as the ST750.

The BA200s are my favorite IEMs, and I'll recommend them to everyone that's abvle to purchase them, they carry a huge value for the money.

If you compare them with Vsonic VSD1, you think that deserves the more money. I mean better bass, tremble and instrument separation? Thanks

Haven't heard the a151 but I have the CC51 and it's not even in the same league as the EB950. The EB950 is really close to the IE800. Just a great little IEM. Especially for 10 bucks!

The A151 sounds like AM radio. I'm sure the EB950 will be better, actually it was on my wishlist but I can't see me buying it now.

It wasn't even on my radar but went in to Ross to look for the BA200 or !E800 that people were finding for insane prices and bought two EB950's (after reading CLIOS review) hoping to trade them for something better. When nobody seemed interested I opened one and was pretty astonished at the sound. Eventually a fellow Head-Fi'er hooked me up with some IE800's and I was amazed at how well the EB950 held up to the dual driver IE800. Especially since I got them for 9 bucks each (senior discount every Tuesday-LOL). My wife listened to them and demanded I give her the other pair of EB950's. It's not really a critical listening IEM but it has great, fun sound sig and is amazing on my gym rig.
