These headphones are equipped with balanced armature drivers, which provide exceptional sound quality while minimizing noise and distortion.

Balanced Armature Drivers for Exceptional Fidelity

Engineered using high-grade components, the TDK BA200 In-Ear Headphones deliver pristine, high-fidelity sound reproduction. Each earphone is outfitted with two high-performance drivers, one dedicated to bass and the other to mid and high frequencies. The drivers use a balanced armature design, allowing them to transduce sound more cleanly and efficiently. You'll enjoy defined, rich, and immersive audio performance across all frequencies. Highs and mids will sound full-bodied, and bass will sound tight and resonant without being muddy.

Crisp, Clean Audio from Any Source

Thanks to impedance stabilizing technology, the BA200 In-Ear Headphones can provide consistent high-fidelity sound performance across a variety of devices. Whereas some in-ear headphones can introduce distortion and static when the audio signal is amplified, the stabilizing technology allows these headphones to handle amplification more effectively. You'll enjoy balanced and uniform sound regardless of the audio source.

In-Ear Design Seals Off Ambient Noise

The BA200 headphones use a sound-isolating, in-ear design to ensure an ideal listening experience. The ear tips block out ambient sound so you can immerse yourself in your music without the distraction of background noise.

Comfortable Listening with Multiple Ear Tips

Featuring four different ear tip options, the BA200 headphones ensure a comfy fit regardless of your ear type. They come with two sets of Comply foam ear tips that conform to the shape of your ear as well as two double-flange silicone tips that are optimized for sound isolation. You'll be comfortable even during extended listening sessions.

Versatile Wearing Options for Active Listening

The 20.5-inch long cable allows you freedom of movement while you listen. The cable can be worn over your ear to maximize stability, making these headphones suitable for jogging, biking, or other athletic activities.

Compatibility and Warranty Information

The TDK BA200 In-Ear Headphones are compatible with any audio device with a 3.5-millimeter audio input. They are backed by a one-year limited warranty.

What's in the Box

BA200 In-Ear Headphones, four ear tip sets, shirt clip, storage pouch, and replacement filters.

These IEMs are great value and have fantastic sound.
Amrik Cooper
These have a well balanced inoffensive sound, with neutral bass and smooth mids and treble.

Competitive with IEMs that cost twice as much, or more.

Not sure I get what the other reviewer was trying to say, but the universal sign - a five star rating - says it all. I agree. When you buy these phones for the Amazon price, you are getting a very very good deal. I have owned many pair of so-called "Top Tier" in-ear phones, and value-wise, the BA200s hit a real sweet spot. Competitive with IEMs that cost twice as much, or more. I have owned W4, W3, UM3X, Ety ... you name it. But for $159 NIB, the BA200s are the best I have heard. I was lucky enough to have a $25 coupon too, but nevertheless, they are well worth the price.

They are just such a nice, mellow sound signature, but no details missing and enough bass. If you need more bass, a good headphone amp with bass boost or a decent equalizer will make it right.

I was blown away listening to the BA200s out of my Arrow amp/iPod Classic LOD, they really do scale up with amplification. On the other hand, they also sound great out of my iPhone 4, no amp needed.

If you want to spend this much, then you should buy these phones. I can't think of any that are on the same level, but I never heard the RE262.

After spending hours on reviews on so many differents earbud, I decided to give a try to the TDK 200. I am so happy I did, can't believe such a great sound come out those so little piece of plastic, i am now addict and need at least 30 mms a day to listen at them otherwise i feel my day is not complete.
Only problem is the fit ( how can technicians touch perfection on sound and then neglect comfort ? cable don't stay over the ears, medriocre seal, comply tips better but don't last, silicon tips hurt ! ) never the less here is the solution : purchase westone TRUE-FIT and STAR combo tips ( around $15). seal is fantastic and music quality even better. Garanti you have now a $300 equivalent IEM !
Personal tips: Of course for ultimate experience good music source is a must, I listen my music on Galaxy note 2, with NEUTRON music player and ether NOOZXOIDE EIZO pro or EIZO E so far best set up i have found. Enjoy
Bruno

Pros: Great seal, stunning clarity, build quality, cost to performance ratio, musicality and instrument separation.
Cons: Highs roll off, very short cable which requires included cable extension, lack of variety in tips, and an amp is recommended.
Style: Over-Ear IEMs
Tonal Balance: Warm with forward mids.
Preferred Genres: Trip-Hop, jazz, hip-hop, pop, most electronic, etc. Essentially any music with punchy bass, clean vocals, or music without a strong focus on highs.
Amp: Recommended. These sound great through my iPod Classic, but from my Schiit stack these sing.
Listening Set-Up: Musicbee -> Schiit Modi/Magni

Packaging

Aesthetics
TDK has gone with a, mostly, black and bronze color scheme that I find myself quite fond of. The box features pictures of the IEMs themselves along with detailed information about the BA200 in three languages. The packaging looks sleek and minimal on the front, but a quick turn-around and I find it to be a bit busy, this is because TDK has chosen to brand to multiple countries on one package. The inside box, with the outside shell removed, is identical to the outside. This is redundant and odd, they should have gone with a minimalistic design on the inner section.

Unwrapping
Opening the BA200 box was a breeze. The outside cardboard shell slides upwards and the BA200 and accessories slide upwards in a clear plastic sleeve in which the accessories are easily removed.

Accessories
TDK includes a user guide booklet, a small black carrying pouch, a ¼'' adaptor, a cable extension, and 4 pairs of tips; two sizes of double flanged tips and medium and large Comply tips. The included cable extension is necessary for use for most as the attached cable is very short.

Like the other reviewer I have no clue what that one reviewer is talking about as it makes no sense to me but I digress.

This will be short and sweet because you can find plenty of reviews on Head-Fi and blogs.

Before I got these I said the e-Q5 is as good or better but after getting the BA200 I think its a bit better than the e-Q5, not by much but enough that I'd recommend these over the e-Q5 for most applications. They have a warm, smooth and detailed sound with an awesome soundstage that has very good width, depth and height. Bass is plentiful for me with good impact and depth along with detailed smooth mids and highs. There's not many if any IEM's you can get under $300 or or even $400 that sound much better than these do, so if the smooth warm detailed sound with a spacious soundstage is a signature you like than the BA200 is a fantastic choice.

Edit;

I've bought and sold a lot of IEM's and now that I've been getting more into proper headphones like the HD600 and HE-400 I sold these awhile back along with others like the e-Q5 and SM3. Since I saw they were on sale for $121 I had to get another pair because these really are one of the best under $400 IEM's you can get imo, they are about 90% or so of the SM3's SQ so for under $150 (even $200) that's just a steal. Now I'm going to sale my T-Peos H-200 hybrid (even though its one of my favorite IEM's to date) to help fund my Hifiman HE-500 purchase.
