Has anyone tried other filters? Will any filters from say Mouser work? What diameter is the nozzle? I know the ety folks have been buying them from mouser and I think they come in other sizes too.

I bought the 122 from soundearphones and didn't realize they didn't come with other sets. I enjoy them greatly, just curious about the other filters and I don't want to buy a whole pack just to try.

Check with Chris Himself, he may be able to build new wire using your old jack. 

 

update the thread with your findings

That's not the same website as before though. Last time I ordered I think they came from Germany.

That new website helpfully only ships to the US.

If you can get filters here they're £29.99 (~$45)
So these may get retired sooner than I hoped.
I was hoping to buy the Comply tips but the only suppliers here with them are just overpriced.

So that's it the overpriced T-130 filters around now are the last of the bunch? Filters are almost half the price of the earphones =/

 

Just to clarify: the last sentence lists "T-130" as if they are "filters".  

The T-130 is a foam tip, and cheap from Comply.  

The filters are Audeo designed, and go inside, and are tiny.  I'd be extremely surprised if mouser or any third party has them.  At least not the mouser I know. Audeoworld accessories website looks good... glad they put that up.

Only accessories you won't find on Audeworld web site is PFE232 cables, I like stock few of them as spare, but seems not available now. If we break the cables of 232, then we need to discard them.

PFE appreciators: Is the expected value of PFEs going to increase or decrease because of discontinuation? I'm trying to sell some all-but-new 132s and your advice would be appreciated.

post #2708 of 2852
Looking at number of active threads and head-if'ers, i do not think price will increase.

I would guess that the price won't really increase, but once they're all really gone from retail (there's some store's left) the used price will be the same as the current retail price.  Who knows, they may sky rocket, but I would assume retail price for used versions.

Oops yea typo. I checked ordering from comply and the shipping is almost as much asthe tips to dsend them here.

On the audeo world website they were around £15 before they changed the website. Best I can find here is £20 ($28) from other sources

Westone foam tips are better than Comply for me, SQ is better, cheaper and these tips are more durable. Check out if you can get them.

Well... how is the fit on the PFE tube?  Is it just right, too lose, too tight, etc?  I'd try, so long as they aren't too tight.  I've broken a SE500 tip before!

Tight than the stock ones...need to be careful...I have read in different threads here that these foams are different than comply and I can expect them to last for 4 months at least. I am willing to take this risk as they are not very tight and SQ is good to me...mids are little bit more forward.

Thanks, but I'm either too clumsy or paranoid to try something tighter.  Or both.  Not to mention other neuroses.

Man, what a difference a year (or two) can make on your perception of audio.  I just started taking audiophilia seriously two years ago, after having listened to heavily equalized music through relatively crappy (decent for the cost) Senheisers for probably eight years up until that point.  I didn't really like the sound of the Phonaks at first; I actually detested how "sterile" I thought they sounded, yet now I don't listen to anything lossless with any active EQ and only bother with something like BBE on specific MP3s.  It wasn't simply me adjusting to these either as I've tested out quite a few of the $300 - $600 range headphones over the past two years as well.  For extensive listening sessions I still prefer headphones, but these seemed to have been well worth the cost.  I don't know how they compare to other similarly priced IEMs, nor how the more expensive ones sound, but these sound pretty good. 

 

The only downside I feel they have is with the default tips that came with them.  The "comply" foam seems to only fill out correctly with one of them, and only the largest of the silicone tips seems to be mostly sealing.  I say mostly, because even with them being the largest, sometimes I have to push on them to get a good seal for bass, and I have no idea what I should be looking for in a different tip.
