Looking at the pictures it seems to me that the M5s stick out quite a bit from the ears. Is this really the case? I'm really tempted to pull the trigger, but this would be a showstopper for me
It gives about the look when using standard Creative or Iriver or Cowon earbuds.
I wear them down(not over the ear) and they look long. But they do not stick out.
If you mean "you want to buy them but are afraid to be disapointed" let me tell you they are not professional for nothing... Wow! Since 2 days I am wearing them and my biggest problem was the seal of the tip. I had no sound!
I just ripped a boxset I bought of classic music and listening at the music , encoded at Ogg 6, I tought there was a defect in the cds, the sound was way down and to hear something I had to put the D2 volume level at 30-35 on 50. I was wondering maybe my encoder was defective, etc.
Tonight I took time to try out other tips than the S-M-L double flange that came with the M8. I had some old Koss the Plug -kind of rubber- black tips and right there the sound improve and the volume level became ok.
I then tried my triple flange Etymotic ER4 tip with a Koss "sleeve insert"( it holds it tighter on the stem of the earphone) and NOW I HAVE MUSIC!!!
In the first replies of this thread there is a mention and an adress for black Shure tips.The black tip I tried are the same about.These should be bought to get the finest seal.
At one point with the Atrio silicone tips I had success in sealing and music, but then I removed them and when I put them back I could not find the same position and lost the sound quality.
These earphone are fantastic. The right tip as to be found. I will write to Future Sonic to let them know.
I am listening to some music I am familiar with since long and discovering new things in it.
I do not regret having bought them and I am especially proud of having handle the tip/seal problem rapidly so I can now really enjoy..
P.S. to dfkt
WOW! Wicked!!! Beethoven sounds sogooood now with the D2
