Cosmic Ears - new CIEM company with great prices (including Hybrid designs!) - Page 241

Phil was extremely responsive throughout the entire process, even before I made the purchase. This is the most positive experience I've had with a customs company thus far.. For the measly amount I paid for the JH16 reshell(they were my own originally, but the original build was lacking and the fit was pretty bad, and I always had a suspicion there was imbalance between R-L), Phil fixed my imbalance issue, replaced the everything inside that was broken down and worn out, and I received a pair of IEMs that I feel are better in build quality compared to the original.

 

I think some points really stood out in the whole process that highlights Cosmic Ears' dedication to its customers

1) Phil advised me against getting a HY3 replacement and suggested I wait for the reshell to be done since I would probably not enjoy it as much. What company in its right mind would turn down more business!!

2) Phil actually used his personal time to help experiment and repair the imbalance problem for my Jh16s. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to him. Without his help I would just have a pair of very expensive paper weights.

3) The process took a little longer than usual, which I stress is NO FAULT of cosmic ear. Since JH uses different sizes from the standard sound tubes, Phil had to order them and wait. Plus, he had to experiment through trial and error the best way to remedy the imbalance. Although it wasn't his fault, he felt responsible for it and more than made up for it by throwing in a HUGE surprise when he sent my reshells back.

 

I'm pretty sure that Phil made a huge loss in trying to remedy my reshell, and I truly appreciate his help.

 

 

Phil, if you read this, thanks for all your help! You have a loyal customer for life!


whoa O.o CE and Phil really are the best in customer service around...YOU GO PHIL!!!

Great news davtse, I see Phil is the same great guy we all know here :happy_face1: Would you mind posting a picture or two of your new monitors? I honestly wonder how do they look like.

I too have had similar service from Phil :-)
I can't wait for the HY5 to surface.
Let's see your reshells!

Nice! Were they original JH16 or the FreqPhase version?

post #3605 of 4463

they're the original version of the JH16. I was one of the early adopters.

Cool. I imagine a reshell on the FreqPhase models would further complicate things.

So you've done those before I take it? All that extra tubing, plus the phase measurements, seems like it would add at least a little complexity. I guess not too much for you though :gs1000smile:

Just pulled the trigger on some BA4Fs! 

 

Phil has been great with support and fielding any questions I've had, I can't recommend him enough. 

 

I'll be sure to keep this thread updated on the process if any of you are interested.

Hi.

 

I have to buy a new iems (I lost it), I find this thread about Cosmic Ears and they catch my attention.

 

I used Shure 535, I liked much them. I am among Shure 536, Westone 4R/40 or Cosmic Ears BA4/HY3.

 

My doubts is about sound quality, are the Comisc Ears in sound quality better, similar or worst than Shure 535? What is more balanced BA4 or HY3? 

 

Thanks.

as far as i've read on this thread you cant go wrong the ba4s. Also, the ba4r (reference version) is supposed to be pretty balanced across all frquencies.

BA4r is balanced CIEM. Initially it was reported as bass light CIEM but recently Phil tweaked the bass by about 1-2 db. To my ears they are not bass light (although definitely this CIEM is not for bassheads); moreover, in my view, they have very good quality bass which delivers sub-bass as well (this is probably also due to the vented driver used for the bass). The midrange is dynamic, clear and detailed. Highs are good as well, very clear and detailed (although I would call the treble of BA4r rather smooth) - probably the could do better here. Soundstage is average (rather typical for reference monitors).

Thanks for the info.

Which of the Cosmicear models would you say have the most bass?
