 I just recently noticed that on Treoo Website . http://treoo.com/store/index.php/main/tdk-ie800-signature-in-ear-earphone.html
 
At first, I thought it was Sennheiser IE800 as the names are quite similar.

And I realised that they stated Dual Dynamic Drivers and I can't imagine of how its sound signature would. 
 
It seems great except the flat cable design I don't like. Their previous flagship TDK BA200 was my favorite. it served me pretty well but then the flag cable designs started to spoil. It really disappoints me .  I've searched around and can't find any info about it. thus, I am wondering if anyone have ever used/reviewed the impression before.
 

 
 
According to the spec stated there.

Very interesting, i believe the ST750 High Fidelity Over-ear Headphones also launched recently. Really curious on how these and the TDK BA700 sounds like. Is it because of poor distribution networks that tdk doesnt get much exposure in the west? Treoo carries these models btw. Hopefully we will get reviews soon :)

You can try at that model at current IT Fair with a price tag 189 SGD . 
 
I thought of getting one and only thing that stops me to buy is its design .. it's significantly came out from ear like TF10 .
Well, I enjoyed the sound though. Analytical enough for me . 
 
 

 
 
I guess they just launched this model for that IT fair and as you can see, it's very new.

my brief 5 sec impressions at the IT Fair with this was that its signature and technical level was close to my gr07... at least compared to the ba200 beside it. the ba200 was too piercing for my taste.. =/

Hmmmm i am very interested to see how these sound.  The eph-100 uses micro drivers and they create a beautiul sound unlike anything i have heard before...... so imagine what could be possible with duals.  5.5mm for the highs and mids with the 8mm thumping the bass

  as I said the yams only use 1 and its 6mm.  
 
Shame about the cables though as i like to go over ear!

I have been looking for these, but I don't think they are available in my country. The only way would be to order online, which I don't like because of the wait time.


You do realize that with that kind of thinking you'll have much less to choose from, right? I for example have to order almost everything online and wait about couple of weeks or even more...

Yes I do. I didn't want to mention it, but Amazon, ebay and a few other online sites do not ship to my country. There are options like JAC, but it adds risk to the risky and cost to the costly. Maybe one day I might try it with small items. But for $150 IEM, I am a bit scared. :)
