Same here. I just can't get used to the gray ones. I use both silicone and Comply, and like both. But I am going to try out that mod from dfkt. It is pretty amazing that the filters can make such an a difference. Two phones for the price of one. I guess some folks are rankled by all the fuss over these phones, but every time I check to see if I am nuts/exaggerating, I really enjoy hearing them again (with the black filters). I just believe they will become the leading mid-priced IEM, if more people could get access to them (listening Phonak?). I know the IE8s, TF10s, etc., of the world are higher quality IEMs, but I just like the clarity and detail so much. Sorry for being repetitive.
I will do a extended black filter listening test.
Just popped in the black filters.Will update after a lot more listening. Black filters still maintain the clarity just the bass is more pronounced and the mids are more recessed.
