You're talking about the stock cables' plugs, right? I don't see how they're 3mm thick. Here's what I'm seeing:

 

 

And here's a 3.5mm plug to show the scale is accurate:

 

 

No matter how I look at it, it looks closer to 2.5mm.

^ You're absolutely right 2.5mm. When my calipers are completely closed they're 0.5mm out from 0, that's where the error was on my behalf. Thank you for double checking.

This is one song. Listen from 3:10(for about 30sec) for harshness. While the recording it self does have some sibilance, it shows extreme harshness on H-200 when it reaches the climax.

With 20% of my library, I love the H-200.

Kimvictor, mate! Have I got a news for you... My filter mod works perfectly and that song of yours sounds close to being perfect with my H200. All you need are the Sony hybrid tips + earbud earphone foam covers + nail scissors! I'm guessing the MH1c tips can work too.

Instructions to follow...

@Kimvictor: Remember this?

Take a couple of earbud foam covers. Thick, premium ones are preferred.

 

Wrap one cover on each nozzle then insert the STOCK silicone tip over

Cut out the excess foam from the base of the sleeve.

Hopefully the reduction of sibilance will be a significant margin for you.

Goodluck!

 

Now with some minor changes... notice that I'm now using the Sony hybrid tips instead of the H200 black stock tips. Originally I used the stock tips because they are very easy to insert over the foam cover/filter. Apparently the Sony hybrid tips do a better job at controlling the peaks in the treble. It'll be a LOT more difficult to do this procedure with the Sony hybrid tips but as we all know: Patience is a virtue! Maybe practice with the stock tips first; then go for the Sony hybrid tips for your final mod.

 

Materials: Sony Hybrid Tips; Earbud foam covers; Nail scissors

 

1. Cut an earbud foam cover right in the middle. You'll use each half for each IEM.

2. Insert the IEM nozzle into the halved foam cover (SIDEWAYS). The tip of the nozzle should be directly against the side of the foam cover. The seem should be right in the middle of the nozzle's opening. The reason for this is I find the sides (where the seem is) to be the thickest part of the earbud foam cover.

3. Now pull the foam cover tightly over the nozzle. Not too tight because you don't want the foam to be too thin at the end of the nozzle. Make sure the seem is right in the middle of the nozzle's opening.

4. Insert (carefully) the Sony hybrid tip. This will be difficult because these tips have a small sleeve diameter. But take your time... a little twist and turn can help a lot.

5. Once the tip is on the nozzle, it should be secure and tight. You can then cut the excess foam off with a nail scissor.

 

Let me know how you go... goodluck and happy listening!

Thanks! I will try the foam.

Awesome mate, the coherency and headstage sound interesting.
Few weeks ago I might of gone ahead but I've forbidden any purchases at the moment.
I think whats great here is you took the gamble and have come out satisfied. 

Very well described by the way, nice and easy to read without being overly long. :)

Is there any word on T-Peos starting to sell their own upgraded cable yet? The custom mades are a tad bit too expensive for me at the moment.

I doubt T-PEOS will be selling their own cable. I honestly think they should include it in their recent batch.

Thanks mate! I'm glad you find it alright.

+1, i think H200 deserves the upgrade cable to be included as the package option.

yesterday was studying red cable for lose contact and listened to my H200 with black and red cables.... OMG, what a nice IEM and red cable bests the black one easily... but holly smokes, i love my H200 for its sound and price is silly cheap for what you get. so i think i will be getting cable replacement and be happy all over. damn TPeos, on some tracks bass on H200 outshines my V1 and voices are warm and nice too.

 

as d MarcO pointed in his comparison H200 has very good stage and approaches you from the distance which creates nice spacious atmosphere but i love how it maintains clarity and separation, at this price you cannot ask for more IMO.

 

NB: sorry for this small ramble but if i love things i have i love to speak about them and H200 is my lovely toy.

Oh, I was of the understanding that they would. Maybe I should just learn reading comprehension, too bad my first language isn't english :P

Hi, i'll buy a h200 in this week.

 

But something confuses me, i wonder, maybe i should choose the new sony xba-h3... It is also 3 way hybrid...

 

'Cause the difference in price is tiny, i really don't know which one is better:confused:

Thanks anyway.

If sony did you drivers from EX1000 or MDR7550, I'm going to guess that bass of H3 is going to outperform H-200 by a margin. Even 7550 itself beats H-200 in terms of bass. But if you want clarity, I will have to say H-200 is hard to beat.
