those look really nice!

Question is, how do they sound compared to the stock 3 wire black cable

post #3574 of 5282
Well it's just a new wire, the same as the tri black but in a different colour, my ciems sound the same

I'm really looking closely at Cosmic ears as they seem to have a great lineup with good build quality but I'm having some trouble deciding between the BA2 and BA3.

 

With a few little personal customisations these would come out to $288 and $410, respectively. These prices are not including the ~$150 or so for the audiologist impressions and shipping to Sweden from Australia.

 

I'm happy to pay the extra money if the sound quality is going to be noticeably better, but otherwise I'll likely go with the BA2s. Can anyone here offer any input or give any general thoughts on the topic?

 

For reference I would be moving up from a pair of Shure SE215s

 

Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

$150 just for impressions is insane, have you tried contacting more than one audiologist?
post #3577 of 5282

It's $50 for the impressions and I'd plan on sending them express. From Australia to Sweden it can get a bit expensive to ship and I usually overestimate, just in case it'd need to be sent back etc.

I'm a fan of CE but maybe you should try ciems first from a company closer to you. Imagine you have to do a refit, are you willing to pay another $100 just to ship it back?

Has anyone heard from CE this week via email? Sent a couple this week with no reply.

Thanks

Even if I'd need a refit it'd still be cheaper than going for other similar spec'd/quality companies that are near me.

 

I think considering the great Customer Support I've had from Phil too, I'd rather support CE as well.

Good choice. I can recommend the BA4

post #3584 of 5282
Up +1. But I'm reccomending R version:D

I was looking at the BA3 which is 410 with my customisations and the BA4 is 482 with my customisations. Do you think it'd be worth the upgrade?
