Outstandingly realistic sound, once fit was dialed in (Comply TX-100 large)

  • Excerpt: Disclosure: my hearing is not the greatest. I find myself tweaking equalization to around +3 dB starting at 8 kHz, and up to +8 dB at 10 kHz. I still have somewhat critical tastes, but not what I'd consider "audiophile-level".
  • Pros: Natural soundstage & imaging, good treble extension, smooth midrange, great for jazz & classical
  • Cons: Light bass and fatiguing treble with stock tips, poor cord strain reliefs, finicky ergonomics

  • Summary: Fit and finish The PS200 fits well in my ear canals, although the body is on the large side. Because of this, they constantly push against my antitragus, making it sore after a while. However, I doubt this will happen to other users.
  • Pros: airy and wide soundstage, great speed and detail, well built and cool looking
  • Cons: slightly large, bass isn't very powerful, may be too bright for some

  • Summary: Design A silver housing, accented by a black nozzle and a black "fan blade" back, gives the PS200 a unique look.  The fan blade back has a look similar to a jet engine (although this visual cue has no real impact on the acoustics of the earphones).
  • Pros: Nice style; sweet sound; very comfortable to wear; nifty carrying case.
  • Cons: Weak bass; pricey at retail of $249

  • Summary: Recommendations: TX100 Comply foam tips (MUST), wear it over-the-ear Avoid: Too high volumes, default tips   Out of the box they sound a bit harsh, but we can feel its pleasant soundstage. After 20 hrs of burn-in (driver) harshness reduced significantly but it bothered in quite a few recordings.
  • Pros: Sparkling highs, excellent mids, good bass and beautiful soundstage
  • Cons: too much highs (for some) especially at high volumes
