Summary: With sound that is reminiscent of well-regarded high-end earphones from the likes of HiFiMan and Shure, an ergonomic form factor, and good noise isolation, the TDK BA200 is a solid all-rounder with plenty of mass appeal.
Pros: Excellent all-round sound quality, great ergonomics
Summary: Overall the sound is great! The only problem I have is the bulid design.... The flat cable seems to coil around while even just walking. Another problem I have is the cable length, you would have a choice of having the cable either awkwardly long or awkwardly short.Other than that, these are my...
Pros: Good Bass for BAs, Large Soundstage, Very Laid Casual Treble, Lots of Accessories
Cons: Flat Cable can get annoying at times, Cable either to long or too short
Summary: For those into photography, all my photos are taken with an ancient (by digital camera standards) c. 2006 Canon PowerShot S3 IS. It only has a 1/2.4” CCD sensor and has an 36-432mm (35mm equivalent) lens, so dynamic range isn’t great and high contrast edges are very prone to color fringing, but it...
Pros: Monitor-esque sound, but with enough dynamism to get you off your feet ; Deep, enveloping, three-dimensional soundstage; Smooth, relaxing
Cons: Slightly laid back treble may not be suitable for some; YMMV with flat cables and cord extension; Availability (or lack thereof)
Summary: TDK IE800 VS. BA200
IE800 $40-90 (Discontinued by manufacturer)
BA200 $55-120 (Discontinued by manufacturer)
(on Head-fi, Ebay, and Amazon)
Some have even found these at Ross and TJ Maxx for $10-20.
Pretty much the same packaging for both IEM’s.
Summary: Good sound, terrible build quality
cable broke in 3 months; do not buy used or from a shady vendor
shure se215 better alternative for long lasting iem at 100$ or re400 if you want to risk cheap build for better sound
typical ba sound anemic bass but present with fast and detailed treble
Summary: Own them for a while now really love them!
bought a couple comply foam tips which are more comfortable then the stock ones.
the stock ones are decent i liked the triple flang ones but comply foam tips are simply better.
Summary: The BA200 is an exceptional value. The basic sound signature is relatively flat and a slightly recessed high end. The bass is very capable for a BA headphone. While not 'loud' bass, it is fairly neutral and extends decently low. The mids are very even and smooth in the frequency spectrum.
