Hi, I just bought them from lendmeyourears.com. Hope they are better than BA200 and GR07

I have not heard the BA200, but IMO they are not better than the GR07.   If the mids were a little more forward on the H-100 then I would call it a draw between the GR07 and the H-100 (or perhaps the T-Peos model would come out a little ahead because of its smother highs, excellent sub-bass and great build quality).

The GR07 costs RM$555 and the H-100 costs RM$400. I Hear the mids on the H-100 can be better with a different tip. The TDK BA200 are rated higher than the GR07 and the H-100 (ClieOS). The reason I really chose the H-100 was because it can be worn over ear and down.

 

I plan to get an e11 amp to pair with it. Is that a good idea?

Is the extension and sound stage better or worse than GR07 BE/MKII?

 

Thanks.

I don't think you can improve the mids with tips...perhaps a little EQ can help.

 

Don't get me wrong, I think the H-100 is an excellent choice but I don't think it is better than the GR07.   In my previous post I did not mean to say that the BA200 is not better than the GR07 (I worded that wrongly), what I meant to say is that IMO the H-100 is not better than the GR07.

 

Sound Stage is about the same on both.  You don't need an amp, but it does not hurt to have one.

Is the built quality and finishing better than GR07?

Yes.  The H-100 cable is stupendous.  The GR07 is made out of plastic, while the H-100 is constructed of metal.  The GR07 came in a crummy plastic box, but they do include a ton of tips.  The H-100 comes in a cool wooden box and only few tips.  The T-Peos case is more functional and of better quality.

Tried this one at a shop last week and out of the hundreds of IEMS and headphones out on display, I found myself returning to this one over and over again. I really admired the warm bass and the sparkly highs. My source was my HTC One with beats off and it sounded great. It reminded me of Atomic Floyd's Minidarts. I'm definitely putting this one on my wishlist unless the H-200 fits me more which I have yet to try out.

post #1209 of 1259

Is there any updated info on where to buy these that is different than the OP? Possible better price etc etc.

post #1210 of 1259

I've been waiting for the H100 from lendmeyourears for 15 days already. I've emailed them but no response from them for 2 days. Frustrating since Singapore is so close.

Wow that's taking a really long time...Good thing I'm in Korea. Got it in less than 24 hours after order.

post #1212 of 1259

I don't mind if it takes a little long because we had 2 days public holiday in Malaysia and that could be the reason (8-10 working days they say) but they didn't even bother to respond to my email for the past 72 hours. That's not right.

 

I got a free IEM from HiSound which I ordered on July 28th and I got them on 5th August (8 days)

I bought from Lendmeyourears on 1 August and today is the 15th August (14 days) and still no sign of them.

 

I just found out that http://mellowworksstudio.com sells it SGD$10 cheaper and their service I found out is good. 2 day delivery.

post #1213 of 1259

I just got my H-100 after about 20 days wait. All the stuff that was supposed to be included was there except the carabiner. Should I ask them about it or am I being too petty? I mean it was a good looking carabiner.

About the audio:

Disappointed. Only things going for it are:

1. Good instrument separation. Far better than any other IEM's I've tried before (thats not a lot)
2. Very good treble extension but I couldn't stand it on some tracks (irritating)
3. Good audio jack and the overall built quality seems good

The issues:

1. Very odd bass or bleeding in the low frequency ranges. I heard from reviews that the bass extensions on these were good (maybe I don't have a "Golden Ear"
2. Vocals are terrible
3. Weak mids and in some tracks nothing in that range at all.
4. Non of the provided tips (9 pairs) fits me well. I haven't tried the foams yet
5. Microphonics are evident on the top half of the cable (made of plastic)

So far I haven't done any burn-in yet. I seriously hope that will make a difference but I doubt it really can give that big a difference. Wish I got the H-200, GR07BE or the TDK BA200 now.

post #1214 of 1259

I picked these up while I was in Seoul. After hours sampling IEMs within my price range ($100-$200) I settled on these.

 

I got the H-100R version for 130,000 won here http://earphoneshop.co.kr/. They have an insane selection of IEMs ready for you to try - from $1000 sets to humbler ones. Truly an audiophile heaven!

 

First I'll address what led to my choice, as indeed, I had many dozens to chose from. I went in with several names already in mind and the T-Peos set certainly were one of the sets I was looking forward to trying - I had read almost the entirety of the Multi-IEM review and a good number of posts from this thread and appreciation threads of various other IEMs. Honorable mentions were the CKS-99, Fischer Audio Tandem and UE 700s. Was also partial towards several of the Westone sets and some lesser known brands.

 

Initially, I was very impressed with the Tandems - they had precisely what I was looking for. Impactful bass with a clear midrange and somewhat more tame high end. Unfortunately the Tandems were sold out - as were the AHS CKS-99 for that matter. Koreans have good taste apparently!

 

My first experience with the T-Peos was an awkward one. For some reason they had some plasticky shallow wide bore tips that obviously weren't stock. The result was an abomination of sound when I tried them - all the bass leaked out and all I could hear was ridiculously sharp treble and painful sibilance. I was so turned away by this that I stayed away from the H-100s for a good deal of time. Eventually though, I gave them another try as I was about to make my final round and swapped tips with one of the IEMs next to it (I forgot to swap them back - oops). I can still remember the moment I pressed play on one of the test tracks on my phone - to say it blew my mind would be an understatement. It was like everything clicked at once.

 

I'd simply be rehashing the multi-IEM review and other posters in this thread by describing its sound signature - but no amount of words can't really accurately describe its unique range. The bass was so clear and distinguishable while retaining a respectable degree of power - something I've only experienced with far more expensive sets. The mids were ever so slightly recessed, but only so much as to create a "fun" sound perfect for EDM.

 

The one thing that really struck me were the clarity of the vocals. In regards to the post above this, I can't fathom how the vocals could be perceived as terrible - they are among the clearest and intelligible of any v-shaped IEMs I have listened to, female vocals in particular. For some reason male vocals are cooler in tone and somewhat deeper. Maybe there really is a difference between the H-100 and H-100K sets. That aside, the vocals are positioned somewhat behind the bass and in front of the main instruments, such that they're never mixed into the instruments nor dilluted by the bass. On that note, sound stage is airy and sounds like a premium set of IEMs while instrument separation is certainly present and actually pretty good. However, due to the thinner nature of the mids, trying to analyze them isn't going to be as enjoyable as with flatter sound signatures. Treble is crisp and clarity remains on par with the rest of the range. None of the initial, almost painful, sharpness is present now that I have a proper seal.

 

In terms of packaging, there's little left to be said - presentation certainly wasn't of secondary intent. I'm not one to care much for what box my earphones come in, but being given a solid wooden box filled with all sorts of extras makes it feel like I got more than my money's worth. I count 9 pairs of tips, among those, a pair of comply-esque foam tips, and 4 "hybrid tips" which have a bit of spongy foam between the silicone - it's difficult to describe, maybe I'll upload a picture later. Anyways, the tiny bit of super soft foam doesn't really help much with isolation or seal haha. Doesn't look like it's secured in there, so I guess the foam just eventually falls out and the tips turn into... a regular pair of tips. Regardless, 4 of the 9 given tips fit me well, and I haven't even tried the form-fitting tips. As for the rest, they give a cute little zip up carry case - pretty standard - and a shirtclip and a cord thing to secure your carry case to whatever. I didn't get a "bad-ass caribiner" either, unfortunately.

 

Seeing the awesome audio store in Seoul and then picking up the T-Peos H-100K for under $120 was probably the highlight of my trip to Korea. Take this review with a grain of salt however, as obviously it will contain bias as I'm still honeymooning. Understand that its sound won't be for everyone (when is it ever?) - but if you're a fan of EDM truly consider this pair of IEMs!

Glad you found some satisfying IEMs! Earphoneshop! Really, just a heavenly place isn't it. I live in Seoul and that's my favorite place to go. Actually gonna head there this weekend. Don't know about the part where you said "Koreans have good taste" as most people will buy earphones like Beats and such as they are the most outer image/presentation-conscious people I have ever met (although the design is not to my taste). There aren't many stores here in Seoul like the earphoneshop (they are the biggest in terms of the widest range of products as far as i know) were you can just walk in and try everything for as long as you want so people that have a bit of interest in their music to audiophiles will all head to that one store. Anyways, hope you enjoy the rest of your honeymoon ;)
