Would you mind posting back once you get to test out the Meelec Triflanges on the B2? I suspect they might not fit, as the tips appear to have a rather large bore from the pictures on the meelec site. I can't seem to find a local retailer that sells just the tips and the online prices for international shipping to asia is a bit nuts.

And since I'm posting, might as well ask if anyone knows if the stock B2 tips are shure clones? Looks like it from the pics available. Darn things are a bit too stiff and I'm looking to replace them with the grey flex.

MEElec eartips for A151 will fit B2, though the tri-flanges are not very tight on B2 nozzle. Shure grey flex can be used on B2, but it is actually a little stiffer than the stock B2 eartips.

Ah yes, apparently i was getting mixed up. Guess I'll stalk ebay for cheapish shipping or rummage through some china site for "oems". Thaks for offering to check though. ClieOS has mentioned that the meelec ones will fit, allbeit a bit loosely.

And the irony that the soft flex greys are stiffer then the stock tips... frown.gif

still, i'd sugest to email  meelec and ask for a discount on the ship costs. i did.

and they arrived after only a week

hello

how are the bi-flanges of the RE0/ZERO (i think there are 2 sizes) compared to the Xcape bi-flanges?

i have the meelec a151 and their bi flanges. so i also want to know, how are both of them compared to these meelec

thanks

post #202 of 384

The RE0/Zero biflanges are pretty much identical to the Xcape v1 biflanges (It seems they use the same source as even the shirt clip is identical). These biflanges are thinner, longer and a bit softer to the Meelecs but they won't fit the A151 as they're too wide.

Yes, they are similar. Just that the Shure grey flax is a little thicker than that of B2. But the shapes are very close.

I'll recommend Ts400 a more neutral sound, or Tx400 if you want to add a bit warmth to RE0. As for size, that depends on your ear canal. If you are using small eartips now, get small Comply, so on and so forth.

thank you clieos

i tried most of my tips. the small and big bi-flanges fit me very well, also the medium single. the large dont and the small more or less. i also tried all the sony hybrids, and the medium fit well. surprisingly the small fit me very well with deeper insertion, (contrary  to with the pl50), and the large are a bit big (again opposite to the pl50)

so i find it hard to know which comply to buy confused.gif.
