The million dollar question here is when will these new models be really available to anyone who wants to buy them...

hmm very interesting! Cant wait to see some proper reviews, the BA4 and HY3/5 are the ones im considering, but I can only find reviews of the HY3XB which had a terrible review :( Will the Ba4 or even ba3 be able to produce enough bass compared to like a westone 4?

I did it at jaben for my jh 16 which i changed to a jh 13 and as for the ES5 i did it at ACE hearing, the audiologist there is very skilled, the impressions were perfect.

Look on this thread, many glowing positive reviews of the HY3. Just search with in the thread, there is a tool to do this!

 

Also my review of the HY3XB was not a terrible review just it did not suit my preferences as it was a full on bass monster, some poeple would well and truley love it for that but it is not for everyone at all!

post #1311 of 4460

YES! they are making a cable with controls. I'm so flustered, the BA6 sounds very interesting yet the description for the BA4 sounds like exactly what I'm looking for and it's likely the BA4 will release first and since I need a new pair of CIEM asap... Too many options!

Some nice updates and changes there.

 

At last non memory over ears, I HATE memory wire.

 

Other points of interest is that there are now 3 standard choice of colour with red and blue along with cosmic ears purple. I also wonder if the hy2 is vented now as there is a slight drop in isolation according to the graph.

 

Also worth noting that the hy5 is still at testing stages.

 

Cheers

I have actually literally spent all day today reading every post in this thread smily_headphones1.gif I was looking for individual reviews like that you posted of the ha3xb. By terrible I meant it sounds very much like a one trick pony, and my expectations when spending over £200 on headphones is that they can cope well with all genres. I suppose that is the point of them though (the xb version) smily_headphones1.gif I'm hoping the ba-4 can provide the depth of the ha3 but with more control. My music taste is very varied, and I find my tf10s don't drop low enough nor have the nice mids that I crave, and are also a touch harsh/sibilant at the top end. My ideal sound signature would be along the lines of the dt770s,hard hitting but controlled bass with sparkling treble and smooth slightly warm mids.

From what i have read the HY3 with the reduced bass driver would be right up your street, a few others will tell you more. You could wait for the HY5, from my chat with Phil it seems like it could be a tank and the same applies for the BA4. However i know some will always wants that bass that some say only dynamics deliver in which HY3 would be great for you!

If you look it is HY2 shell size

 

Full/Medium

 

HY2 Isolation

 

-26/-24 so it is saying the medium isolates less ;)

I have third party and indeed original UE cables, and all fit my CE HY3, so can't see that you should have any problems. I have one cable that is a slightly loose fit and that was solved by splaying the pins very slightly. This is with the flush sockets on the HY3, I have no idea what the fit is like with other cables if you have the recessed sockets.

Thanks.  I have flush sockets so I'll give them a go.  I only like about 10 minutes from UE's headquarters, so hopefully I can just buy them there.

DOH!  I blame that on being up entirely too late.

I have to say, I wish they could have kept the entry-level lineup a little longer. $100 CIEMs had the potential to really shakeup the industry. I kept debating whether to get a Pure just so my backup phones would be custom too. But then I mostly want the HY3 like so many people did...right up until the 2013 product announcement. At least I'm still faithful to her; I don't know what I'd do with all the drivers in an HY5.

...+1 to all the above!

 

Having heard my HY3s, and currently loving my Dynamic driver pures, I'm definitely going for the HY5s.

 

March you say davtse?, I think I can hang on 'till then...

 

All the new options that Phil is offering seem great to me, nobody else comes close for the money (range of options/cables that is, I haven't heard any but the HY3 and Pure dynamic that I own, but I certainly vouch for their sound!).

 

My fingers are crossed for a pic of the 'Cloud' finish mentioned in the newsletter, sounds intriguing.

That default purple colour actually look's quite manly lol, any Aussies here in this thread that have already pulled the plunge and ordered one of these?>
