red cable no doubt. i wish black cable would be better since quality make and bending is so much better with black.
but sonically i find red cable more transparent and aiding better sound dynamic.
what i dislike about red cable is plastic rubber material which makes bending cable and packing into case or box a headache, it's like fighting with a snake who does not want go into a sack :-(
BUT, perhaps you better wait for the upgrade cable TPeos will start selling in July for which balancing makes more sense IMHO.
Yes... many had find the fit awkward and even a deal breaker. Personally I'm okay and even like the resulting airy feeling.
I have slight fit problems with the GR07 too, but not the H-200. They don't go really deep because of the large housings, but I don't feel any lack of seal - it could be something one imagines due to the relative shallowness (I've sometimes had that with other phones).
fit and seal very much depend, i found no issues so far but as mentioned here before for some people this became a deal stopper.
i use grey semi-transparent tips and find good seal and comfort. however i would not use H200 while jogging, for me they are causal IEMs for pleasure relax time.
Interesting...they are now officially on the short list. I will keep reading to learn more about their mids...how would you describe them? You say its not v-shaped; where are the mids relative to the rest of the spectrum in terms of emphasis? How are vocals?
H-200 is a unique entry. It is fun sounding AND neutral sounding at the same time, if it is possible. It is a camelion and demonstrate different qualities with different tracks. For hip hop it will delivery enough bass thump, for dance you will feel it is tight and fast, for vocal it is mid-forward or even some called it shouty... compared to TOTL iems I find many of the same qualities, however where it fall short is it is much less refined nor coherent comparatively. It is almost like it is deliberately trying to showcase typical qualities head-fiers look for, and it is quite successful in that and thus the fun sounding character I find. YMMV.
