Hello Head fiers,
 
First of all i am asking because there are very little posts on the Fischer DBA-02.
I heard that the DBA-02 are similar to the Westone 3, is that true?
 
Are the DBA any good, how do they compare to the x10's?
Which of the two have more bass?
 
Thanks,
Djbasketball1

I hate to be critical but is it that hard to do a little bit of research before posting? I am not sure I have seen anything comparing the W3 with the DBA-02. Cost vs. performance the DBA-02 sound like they would win out vs. the X10.  Try the search function it works very well.  Good luck!

I never heard Weston 3 nor X10 myself thus can not comment on that but DBA02 have relatively little bass impact compared to Dynamic-type IEMs such as IE8/IE7, FX700, DDM, RE252/262, Ex1000.
What kind of music you listen to?
If you are looking for a bass heavy sound signature, DBA02 are not for you.

I listen to techno/trance/progressive music.

To the other post: it is extremely hard to find much information on the dba-02 as they are rare.

The westone 3 and the Dba-02 are both dynamic drivers.

Thanks

The dba-02 has dual balanced armatures, not dynamic drivers.  Westone 3's also have triple balanced armatures, and are not dynamic.
You could possibly take a look into the brainwavz b2's.  There's some debate, but I'm pretty sure they are the same as the dba-02's with some minor differences.  They should be easier to find and are also $50 cheaper if you preorder them now, although you'll have to wait a month to get them.
The Westone 3's are much bassier than the dba02's.
There's a review of the dba02's here if you haven't seen it yet:

You're kidding about "very little posts for Fischer DBA-02", right?
 
Here's the thread on the DBA-02's that's currently at 265 pages with many reviews among the nearly 4000 posts. DBA's are hard to find to purchase, but quite a few head-fiers have them, so I wouldn't call them "rare".
 
Have you read joker's collection of reviews? The W3 (and many other Westone models) are included, but no X10's

DBA-02's are very different from westone 3's. 
dba 02: light in bass, quick, punchy,treble focused, prone to sibilance
westone 3: midbass hump, recessed treble (my view on this is different from many) no sibilance

DBA02 are not so rear any more.
Many dealers around the world carry DBa02 including MusicaAcoustics.com
