Ok, so It's been just over three weeks since I received my BA2s . First things first...I'm no audiophile by any manner of means! I mean, I thought that Apples new shaped ear-pods, the new ones, were the best sounding earphones ever! So that gives you an indication of were I'm at on audiophile levelness. Zero!
I got a pair of triple driver iem from a UK based company at the start of the year, no names, not my style, but I can assure you, they are cack! My 25 quid Apple ones blew them away! That's how bad they are.
So, I spoke to David Cotton about them, he knows where they are from, and he suggested I have a look at Cosmic Ears. I was a bit dubious seeing as I'd had an expensive mistake with the triple ones, but I decided to anyway. So glad I did!
First off, can I just say, for me anyway, Phil has been fantastic in this process, very helpful and knowledgeable in what might suit my needs. Wish he was my boss!
I went for the pre fit service seeing as I have child like ears, small, this was good because it identified that the canal part on the right side needed shortening for a better fit. This was done. I found that the right could be doing with being a bit thicker for a better seal, but rather than send them back, which would break my heart, I put a couple of layers of clear nail varnish which seems to have done the trick.
So, my BA2s arrived. I was doing my listening on a Galaxy S3 which for me was fine until a friend suggested I try a Sansa clip player with Rockbox installed.....WOW!! This is were the BA2s came alive for me. The BA2s respond very well to a bit of EQ and loads of bass. I listen to mostly EDM and I'm a bass head so being able to tweak them to my preferred sound signature is spot on for me. The response from them is excellent!
I'm finding now that with the BA2s I'm hearing my music in a whole different light now, hearing things that I've never heard before like the crackle of a sample taken from a bit of vinyl on some of the dance tracks I listen to. Fantastic!
My faith in ciem has been restored thanks to Cosmic Ears and more so Phil!
So, I now have my eye on a set of the HY2s but I'll wait till Cosmic is up and running with everything in place, new cables, drivers...
To some up, I LOVE THEM!! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Cosmic to anyone who's in the market for a set of ciems for the price and the customer service I don't think they can be beat.
