Stem size of V-moda vibe duos??? Help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am new to this forum. Seems like a great community.

I need some help. I just bought the Ultimate Ears Super. Fi 4vi for my iphone. Great set of earphones. I read the review stuff on here and mostly agree with what I saw. Only thing that bothers me is the silicone eartips. I have a pretty small ear canal. The small tips do fit, but are not the most comfortable. They hurt after a couple of hours of wear.

Now before I got these, I had the v-moda vibe duos for the iphone. I returned them because I did not like the over emphasis these tended to place on the lower end. However, these did feel great in the ears. I loved their silicone tips.

So this is why I want to know what the size of the stems are for the v-moda vibes. I am thinking I could order some tips for the vibes and then use them for the ultimate ears, but I don't know if the sizes match up or not.

Someone here has got to have a pair of these and can slap a ruler on them real quick to let me know. I mainly need to know the diameter. For the UE, they are 4 mm.

Please help, my ear canals will thank you greatly.

PS. and if this is a no go, any good recs for other tips that will work. I saw the comply foams, but the T-400s come in only one size and I am afraid they will be too large for my small ear canals. Thanks guys/gals.

You shouldn't have a problem with them fitting the UE4s. The nozzle on the 4s is slightly smaller than the Vibe nozzle, which is the more common size among the lower end and lower priced canalphones. You might try the Creative Labs Zen Aurvana canalphone sleeves. The nozzle size is about 2/3 that of the Vibe and would fit very securely on the UE4s but the silicone shape and type is incredibly comfortable.

Nevertheless, the Vibe sleeves withh work with the UE4s. You might also consider Comply foams. Fantastic comfort and isolation.

Great, thanks for the suggestions too.

The Compys are worth trying. The normal size, for me, is just on the edge of being too small and they are very soft.
