It's ok man, happens to all of us. Rin is getting these analyzed soon, so well see what kind of insertion tames that shoutyness and see how sources change it's sound smily_headphones1.gif

Inks, what tip did you find to be the best comfort wise? Thanks.

My experience similar to H2Os was with the W2 which is picky about insertion and had changed on me because of it. I don't have a H200 but I will soon.

How are the comply foams for these? Any comments are welcome.

I've done heaps of tip rolling (due to fit issues) with the H200s... but in the end: The H200 stock clear silicone tips are by far one of the most comfortable solution without sound degradation.

 

Most comfortable fit was the Philips 3580/90 stock tips but it narrowed down the soundstage width which is a "no go" for me.

It could possibly be that you're a bit more sensitive to that frequency range than others, and are others. Somewhere around 2-3Khz.
Or burn in. evil_smiley.gif
Who knows.

Inks has an interesting point about the possibility of insertion depth being important. Looking forward to the analysis.

Out of curiosity has anyone heard this that owns or has owned the UE900 or W4? If so what are difference sonically between them?

Way more more bass than the UE900 (but the bass is shy of basshead-level), I think the sound is smoother than the UE900, yet has just as much clarity, micro details, and transparency. I think the instrument separation is better. I can't remember if the UE900 had a wider soundstage or not. 

 

W4 is way warmer than the H-200. The W4 has a significant more mid-bass hump. I think instrument separation was great in the W4, but not by leaps and bounds. You really needed a deep insert to get anywhere near the sub-bass the H-200 gives you with a shallow insert (but good seal - I prefer Auvio or Phonak gray tips). I didn't like the UE900 much at all, but I loved the W4. With over 100 hours burn-in the H-200 surpasses the TF10 and UE900 easily to my ears, and somewhat surpasses the W4 (although that may be more enjoyment level). Technically, I don't feel the H-200 is far off from the W4, but have two distinctly sound signatures. I've said in an earlier post that the BA200 has more in common with the H-200 than any other IEM I've heard (but the H-200 gives you quite a bit more). Soundwise the H-200 is top tier to my ears.

hmmmm, I may try these as I am still looking for a bassier headphone that still excels in the mids and treble. Right now the UE900 is still the best sounding earphone I have tried but I might give these a whirl...

That's great news, especially since I fcking hate(d) the H-100
Any plan to compare it against asg-2?

Yes, Eke should be adding the H200 in the ASG 2 review.
post #1107 of 2550

For those of us who don't believe in BA burn in do the highs in the H-200 resemble typical TWFK highs (treble spikes) such as the Rockit R-50 and it's kin?

Yep, as soon as my ASG-2 comes back from the mini-loan tour I sent it on.

As for the H-200's signature, it loosely sounds like the ASG-2 and 1Plus2 had a love-child that grew up listening to dance music all the time. It has an excellent sense of rhythm, and it's a much more fun listen than either the 1P2 or ASG-2. Of course, it loses out in technicalities to its parents, but it costs 1/5 of the 1P2's price, and under half of my Stealth ASG-2's price.

As for negatives, I hear a small shouty peak in the upper mids, an echo of its previous life as a H-100.

Honestly, if almy gear got stolen, and I was left with the H-200, I wouldn't be mad...as long as I caught the damn thief.

I've owned the DBA-02 as well as other phones that use TWFK (i.e. custom IEMs).. it really does depend on the implementation, but many say there are certain 'static' acoustic characteristics to the TWFK.  That being said, the H-200's treble does not sound peaky, harsh, or excessively bright (to my ears) in the way many (of the more popular) TWFK implementations may have sounded.  It's got a crisp, open quality to it that I might attribute to the TWFK sound.. but is it harsh & peaky?  Not to my ears.

indeed they are very smooth. I notice a tiny peak, but I really don't mind.
