Phonak Audeo? - Page 149

post #2221 of 2281
I have trouble keeping filter in the nozzle. they fall off easily. With Shure Olive it is trapped in the plastic tube but with T-130, it can fall out from the tip. I worry it might eventually get into my ear if I keep using T-130 which is more comfortable to me. Anyone have solution. I am thinking using T-100 so the smaller tube will prevent lost of filter and potentially have it get into my ear.
any suggestion?

Hsui: I know the tips don't 'lock' into place as such, but I've removed and swapped the foamies & silicon tips at least a dozen times, and although they get slightly looser, they've never come close to coming off in my ears - you don't really wear the phonaks in as deeply as some IEMs, they sit more towards to outter edge of the ear canal... very comfy if you ask me...

DFKT: yeah, I store all my music on my computer as FLACs, then encode from the FLAC every time using Media Monkey. Its painfully slow, but worth it, as I'm constantly tweaking things and changing my mind!

I suppose there is no golden rule for quality settings, but I think 160 ogg 'feels' a bit too low (listening mostly to alt / indie rock, which can be quite dense and layered) - I think 192 might be the sweet spot, 160 for acoustic / simple music... as a bare minimum, I mean. If I had infinite storage it would be FLACs all the way!

What they lack in low end, they make up for in mids clarity. I use mine for workouts, casual around-the-house sessions and not critical listening, so I am maybe not the best opiner on this thread for this subject. But I put my Sansa Clip's output into a Fiio E5 and turned on the bass boost...it's PERFECT. Gives the PFEs some low end without distortion. Very nice.

Thanks for the reply dude.I dont use an amp.will tat affect the ppe's performance or can a normal eq tweak improve the sound.And also if u had to choose which one would u pick the cx 550(cx-95's) or the pfe s?

Just a guess here, but I know the Sennheiser CX series don't get too much respect around here. Better than your average lower tier stuff, but pale in comparison to the PFE's.

no need to choose...get the PFE's.

Anyone want to buy a box of new gray filters? I bought them, but never used them. Only use black. $8 shipped free to CONUS only (Phonak charges $10). International orders have to pay USPS First Class International, which is like $1.50.

are you currently using the black or gray filters with the fiio e5 amp?

The PFEs sound fine; they just don't have a lot of low end. EQ would probably do the trick, but they're not going to be bass heavy no matter what you do.

Heh, your last question should be a gimme. PFEs all the way.

Using black, but not E5 (sold it). Using iBasso T4 or MiniboxE+
