Thanks Q Mass, I'll check them out. It's just to tide me over till I get the reshells back. I (rather stupidly) hadn't thought about what I'd do while they were away.

They're definitely worth a try, I really enjoy mine beyond what you might expect for the money.

I think though, that there are plenty of other candidates for the 'Cheap but very cheerful' solution that have emerged since the Sony, but I can't speak for them as I haven't heard them.

Can anybody compare the BA1 with the BA2 or any other IEMs?

I'm new to IEMs and want to try something new. But my budget is low.

I have the Shure SE215 LTD but find them to muddy/bassy and I'm missing the treble.

 

Are there any BA1 or BA2 Demo IEMs so i can test them? I have only seen the BA4 Demo on mp4audio

I would say to go for the BA2. The BA1 is not bad (i have a pair I use for spare), but I think the BA2 is in a class of its own.

Would the 2's have enough bass for rock and metal btw? I listen to bands such as Magnum, Mostly Autumn, Pendragon, Blackmores Night, Marillion amongst others.  I have a pair of ma1's (micro version of the ba1) and it's fine for a single driver.  I do miss the bass though!

from the CE website,

Twin balanced armature receiver – 1 for lows, 1 for mids and highs, so I would say yes, but personally I don't listen to those bands so its hard for me to say. I have monitors that use similar drivers to the BA2s but they're not tuned exactly the same. But comparing the BA1 to the those monitors, I would say the extra driver makes helluva lot of difference in the bass department, and at the price you pay for the BA2s, its a steal, I paid twice the price for my monitors and I've been kicking myself every time I see the BA2 price.

some pictures of my reshelled 16s and my BA4.

 

Picture of the cable comparison

 

 

been using the BA4 almost exclusively since I got it.

it is. I wear specs and it plays well with those.

Is that cable standard with the ba4 or is it extra?

 

Thanks

extra. You have to check with Phil though, if he decides to make the new connector the standard of CE, then it might be standard.

How high a pressure is it for them now do you think?

It has been a week and a half since I requested access to the shop to be able to order but I still haven't heard anything.

They have an automated message atm saying expect delays due to high email traffic so I imagine they are slammed right now.

Westone UM3X sent for reshell. I asked for custom color, as a custom handmade artwork is going to be made. I'm very anxious to see and hear them!!

I use the BA2 (micro shell) at bedtime almost every night, and I listen to some of the same music. It does a good job, very well rounded presentation. Not a bass monster nor an Etymotic-type analytical sound.
