Oh mate, I am not a Belgian. I am a master student in here at VUB and already tasted your waffles, fries, beers and darn good chocolates. They all have a nice feedback to my belly though beerchug.gif

But having my CIEMs in my ears would make the experience of having a beer even better, right? Or is it the beer that supposed to make your earphones sound better? wink.gif

Nice, Phil said I can send in my impressions so he can make the shell and then just stuff in everything when it's available.

I have the HY3, and speaking from personal experience with them, they are worth burning in. I don't hold much value in burning in BA's, but as this IEM contains a dynamic as well, I believe a burn in to be worthwhile. My ears have noticed a change for the better over the last number of months. The sound quality is great anyway and only improves over time.

I don't think I've seen a freq.response curve for the HY3. How is the extension on the lower end? Flat/Rolled off/Elevated?

Ok so I'm basically ready to order my first pair of customs! (selling off me Q701 most likely to fund for it.)I basically have couple questions if anyone can help clarify for me. Basically comparisons between BA1, BA2, and HY2. 

Or even just whats the difference between BA2 and HY2 in terms of sound since they are the same price. I'm surprised they said that the HY2 has an increased soundstage? Also I've read through the whole thread but I haven't really seen a comparison between the three ciems so that would help clarify for me and hopefully others greatly! 

Last question, what is the difference between recessed sockets or not? I plan on have the cable come top and bottom of my customs since I don't know if I want over the ear or straight down so it would be worth it if it just comes to both since I can haha.

About the sockets, recessed ones are more secure and durable. I would go for recessed ones. Hope this helps buddy and welcome to the club.

Recessed sockets on the other hand are harder for aftermarket cables, so is said

Will the new (round?) terminations have the same pin size and spacing?

Phil says the BA2 has better mids and highs than the HY2. I think the HY2 should have better bass because of the dynamic driver but don't quote me on it. BA1 is brighter than the BA2 and has less bass extension.

The whole presentation of the HY3 is largely neutral, smooth and flattish with the exception of a slight roll off on the treble. However, bass extension is good with the dynamic driver providing it and it is able to dig deep for music that requires it, such as dubstep or other bass-heavy music genres.

 

It's worth noting that unless Cosmic Ears say otherwise for a particular model, their overall 'house sound' is "smooth and balanced". My experience of the HY3 though, shows it to be extremely amenable to EQ without ruining the sound, and you can take the otherwise neutral sound, and adjust it to your hearts content. This ability should not be underestimated, I have had many IEM's that the basic sound of them is totally destroyed by trying to EQ them.
