Haven't heard the 315, but they're enormously better than the 215, and I actually prefer them to the 535 that I auditioned.
The Auvios are wide-bore.  The Monsters are narrow.  I didn't experience sibilance with the Monsters, but others have reported it from narrow-bore tips.  My experience has been that tips of most any description can be sibilant when inserted very deeply -- I heard it worst with the supplied double-flange tips (except the giant ones).  YMMV.   Radio Shack offers them online, and I presume they'll ship to Canada....
Thanks for the reply, Joe.  I have read back about thirty pages in this thread, so I was aware of some of these fixes, though I was a bit confused.  I thought that the current FW would look like the pictures posted earlier by JamesFiio, but I gather that's the yet-to-release version. Having read many reviews and watched videos, as well as searching for FW version change listings, I was aware of all the issues I'm having, and bought the player to evaluate whether they made...
Dang. It's a good thing the X3 sounds as good as it does.  This UI is a bit of a mess.  No albums by Artist?  That's an awfully elementary omission. When I synched to my SD card, MediaMonkey adjusted my file structure to create "Artist - AlbumName" folders for each album so I get a list of albums in artist order within the folder browser, but still.   Also, I'm pretty sure my album art is attached to all my songs' ID3 tags, but it shows up only intermittently.  While...
Is there a way to add more than one song at a time to Favorites?  Going one song at a time for a 1300-track playlist will be no fun at all.  For example, could I synch the playlist (and nothing else) to the SD card, scan the library, "add all" to favorites, then add the rest of my desired albums albums to the SD card?   If not, I sure hope real playlist support will be added in the next FW.   BTW, when I got my X3 yesterday from an amazon seller, it already had FW 2.1...
Agreed.  Though Monster Gel Supertips offer an interesting experience if you like bass. : ) Sorry for the DP.
Try the Auvios from Radio Shack if you're in NA. They're $5US for two pair, but the fit the barrel securely and give me a similar sound to the grays, only better.  I also ordered some Comply T400 Larges because the ones supplied were just too small to seal reliably without uncomfortably deep insertion.  I spent today listening to them, and they're just a notch below the Auvios in SQ, but offer surprising isolation.  I was sitting in my driveway, reading with them in and a...
Meusicfrek, see my last post. The Auvios are perfect. I've had trouble with tips coming off, as well, but only Monster gels and foams (the latter are hard to get out of my ears once they come off the nozzles!). The stocks haven't given me any trouble.
Hi, folks. I've had my DN-1000s for nearly a week now. I had a lot of trouble finding the right tips and insertion depth. The Complys were best, but not ideal, because they didn't seal particularly well with my large ear canals. In fact, nothing I tried seemed to give me a good, consistent seal. Bass response was generally quite poor, mids sounded thin, and the highs were kind of all over the place until I tried Monster Gel Super tips. These improved things greatly, but I...
Even with a Fiio E6 set to flat EQ, the Moto X shows a little improvement in bass and maaaybe detail...but at the cost of significant amp noise. I just got the phone, and it's otherwise perfect, so the decision is really a) suck it up, b) use the Fuze/Headsix stack, or c) get a new player.    What I really want is the Fiio X5's electronics with Sony's Android-based UI at the DX50's price.  Somebody make that happen!
