Tre treble part, end of the sound paragraph I believe.

Mainly my opinion on the treble and bass. In the first iteration, I stated that the bass was only boosted by about 3-4 db. That might be so, but only compared to the already warm-ish mackie monitors. So I removed that part. After spending some time with the AKG K702 annies, going back to the BA4f makes it clear that the treble is the weakest link in the BA4f. So I also added that bit.

In short, the review is a little harsher and more honest now!

After using my repaired BA4F in trasportation, my PROS/CONS (compared to my previous Klipsch) :

 

PROS :

- Sound : Huge sound, exactly what I was looking for. Not too much bass, just the correct amount for my needs.

- Cable : can be changed, before with my previous IEM, I had to change it every year due to cable issues

- Fit : Once you put it in you don't feelt it

 

 

CONS :

- Isolation : I thought that the isolation should be better with CIEM but not. It was better with the Klipsch.

- Fit : Due to loose fit, isolation is not perfect

- Smarphone Mic & Remote : Unfortunately, no remote cable at this time for the Cosmic Ears CIEM

 

I'm a bit disappointed because now the sound is perfect butto solve the problem it needed to break the previous shell and built a new one. But the fit of the new shell  is worst than the previous one that was perfect.

Looks like you should get it modified because the isolation is great when the fit is correct. Bbviously you're having a problem in that area as you say yourself.

Not only does it influence the isolation, it also influences the sound, and bass mostly.

Funny, when I read your review I feel like you are describing my monitors, but you have F version and I have R version:confused_face(1):

Well, the only difference is a slight boost in bass in the BA4f model. And I EQ the bass down. So it's pretty much the same thing we're hearing :rolleyes:

Not exactly. I will try to explain this more precise.

Let us assume that I have R version and you have F version and that F version have 3 db boost in the bass in comparison to R version.
Then, if you were saying that in your F version you have to lower the bass by 3db and I would do nothing with my R version then I would agree with your statement that we are hearing the same thing.
But, please note that I'm also lowering the bass by 3 db and we both do this in order to have more balanced/clearer sound. So, either I mistakenly have F version (but Phil told me that according their measurement I should have R version) or you ears tolerate more bass by around 3 db.

If Phil says you have the reference version, you have the reference version.

I think your ears got used to the bright sound of the etymotics. And I came to terms with the slightly softer treble :) (I also turn the treble up a bit in the EQ)

Please get back in touch with Phil. He has a record of going to extended lengths in order to ensure his customers are happy.

Maybe you are right. But I will ask Phil to double check my monitors once I send them to him for the refit.

I'm getting a little bit worried if my ear molds got to Sweden safely. Should have had a message that they'd arrived by now...

If you packed them safely they should be fine. Regarding information about their arrival at CE send an email to Phil.

Right, I don't know if Phil read my post, but about half an hour later I received confirmation that they've arrived :)
