New BA4 update says it will be neutral with tight low ends, sounds like my cup of tea! So excited! smily_headphones1.gif

Good to see some further information published since yesterday. Very interesting. For me, I will be interested to hear how well it copes with low/sub-bass, as this is an area where balanced armatures sometimes do not fare very well.

All my IEM's with the exception of the TF10 are dynamics, and most have a low impedance and are driven well by anything they are connected to. I will try the HY3 through my Fiio E7 connected to the C3 and see what effect that has.

 

I live and learn :-) Thanks Project86.


Very Interesting phlashbios. Please post your findings on how the HY3 performs through a Fiio E7 and C3!

Much better is the answer. It's clearly a mismatch between the HY3 and the C3 when attached directly. Even with the E7, It's still not as nice as an unamped Cowon C2 with the HY3 though.

OK, thanks for the info. I'll wait for the 4BA and if necessary get another portable player as well.

Still nothing to order.

 

I really don't want this to be vapourware.

 

Get it sorted!

I asked Phil about cable status yesterday and got the reply that a statement will be released "this week".  He also said that all models are available with standard (ie non premium/westone style) cable.  Guess you'll have to email to enquire!

 

Cheers

That's what confused me, half of them appear to use little more than standard iphone cables, that can be had just about anywhere on the web.

I've been patiently waiting for quite some time now that the HY3 model becomes available again... popcorn.gif

Out of idle interest, I just tried my 'Dark Lord' aftermarket cable that I usually use with my TF10's, with the HY3. Works very well indeed. Increases the bass presence without killing anything else, and retains the smooth presentation of the HY3 at the same time. Recesses the mids very slightly, lifts the trebles slightly. No overkill in any area though. Shows how much a cable change can alter the presentation of an IEM.

 

Also tried it with my 'White Angel' TF10 cable and it is too "trebley" for me, just the same as it is with the TF10's.

Nice cable findings! Do you know if there any cable like those that will improve mids and bass?

There quite probably are, but I don't know which ones they are, I am sure someone here with more experience than me of aftermarket cables will be able to advise.

 

 

EDIT: Having just checked e-bay, there are a wealth of aftermarket "Westone" style cables that will fit Custom Ears IEM's. Many of them have descriptions that describe how the sound presentation is altered by using them, so I reckon you could find something to suit. They range from £20-£300 depending on what exactly you are looking for. My 'Dark Lord' cable is the cheap end of the market, I have no experience of high end cables.
