LOL Luco!  Those tips make your phones sound better because they implant directly into your brain!  I think you are on to something.  Homemade customs via 2-3 stacked Monster hybrids.

Great. Thanks.. I should get my Monster tips tomorrow and I'll give it a try.

 

Do you need to glue them to the comply core, or will they hold firm?

No need to glue them on , just make sure you put the narrow end of the comply  core onto the iem's sound tube so that the end with the lip on is the end you put the tips on ,that holds them in place and i have never had them come off yet and have inserted them in my ears and removed them many many times

Wow, what a service this thread is!!   I just spent all night reading it.  It is incredibly helpful to this noob.  

 

So Luco, do you only listen with your amp now?  I am planning to buy something to pair with my iphone and will not be using an amp.(I mostly listen on the go and want to keep it compact and light)  I'm trying to figure out if I can use your findings - or if everything will sound completely different for me because of not having the amp.

 

If you do listen without an amp sometimes, do you mind sharing what are your favorites unamped?

 

Right now, I'm considering the W3s, the Shure 535 - and after reading this thread, the SM3 the e-Q7s. 

 

Thanks!!

SM3's are the best ampless phone of the bunch FWIR.  535 after that probably.

post #537 of 651

Sm3 sounds great unamped, just like what Shigzeo said in his review, sm3 sounds its best out of any source.

post #538 of 651

Thanks!  I'm off to hunt for SM3/535 comparison threads.

I'll probably post something early next week. My SM3 comes in tomorrow. I'll compare the two this weekend. I may create a new thread... or just incite flames on either SM3, 535 thread... or both.
