hi all! I'm once again on the hunt for new iems since my JVC fxt90's gave out. Can anyone suggest an iem with fast ,(ba driver?) punchy bass,sparkling highs,large soundstage and removeable cables? preferably under $250 I'll be listening to house,dub step and hard style . Thank you

They do not have as much elevation in the sub-bass (i found them to have too much) but they still have awesome texturing down low, some of the best BA sub bass i have heard, the best for the price. Mid bass is snappier but also slightly less. The rest is a win for the Cosmic.

Same driver and sound but BA2 is full or medium shell size. MA2 is micro like i have. Because of the better seal, it is likely that full sized will have the most bass but the MA2 is such a nice little unit in micro shell. I think this will be worth a shot!

The website is now dated. They will have a complete new range:

 

BA1, BA2, BA3, BA4, BA6

HY2, HY3, HY5

MA1, MA2

 

You can email him and see if he is ready to take an order and say sony sent ya ;)

Have you heard them? They got lots of powerful bass, provided that you can get a good seal (which I can).
