If you ever do wonder about the BA200, I can say they are pretty amazing, imo better than my RE-262. I say that in part because the BA200 just sound so amazing unamped. Maybe down the line we can swap the BA200 and Westone 3 when we get bored with them ;).
LOL. Maybe ;)
Surprisingly, the W3's sound great unamped too. No amping needed.

Wow just quite unbelievable...! I am pretty blown away right now. Will have to use them a bit more before I can say more on their sound sig, but for now all I can say is that I'm enjoying them.
I'm still getting used to how the cord goes down your back though, it feels a bit awkward imo. Otherwise, I'm pretty pleased right now
Actually never mind on the cord going down your back - they work just fine over the ear and coming down your chest too

Haha I actually just decided to start playing with the tips. I first tried with the standard complys and found them to be slightly large for my liking. They also are kind of inconvenient as you have to press on them, insert them into your ear, then hold the earphones in place and wait until they expand to fill your ear. Thus, I'm trying the small silicon tips atm. I really like them - they're comfortable and they can be put on/taken off easily.
One thing I'm noticing right away is just how much isolation these have. They isolate better than even my QC15's.
