Fischer Audio Eterna vs Silver Bullet - Page 5

post #61 of 86

I didn't find the right tip for SB yet, single flange with wide tube are fine but not that good for isolation, I found some double flange wide tube, they're good for isolation but highs are slighly backward and they're not as comfortable as SoundMagic PL30 stock tips.

well the sennheisser double flange aren't that long so it might not push the treble back. The M11+ tip kit has double flanges that are similar in addition to other tips that may be useful

Many thanks Inks, you just make me realise I didn't try the M9 tips with SB, about Senn tips, something like these ?

i think i will just stick with what i know to work, the hybrids lol

 yup that's it, I'm personally using auveo tips from radioshack but it's pretty much a standard single flange except it is a bit extended toward the ends and is much softer.

hmm, well i took the safe route this morning and got the white sony hybrids

 

now all i have to do is wait for the SBs themselves lol

I honestly don't like the way the hybrids sound with the SB...your mileage may vary thought

I thought it was better than the stock tips at least, brought out the mids a tad. I haven't tried anything else though.

well, only time can tell.  My dad actually contacted ethan and told me that he might sell me a used set after he repairs it or something. So, ill try various tips in the weeks after i get it and report back here

Yea better than stock tips, but there are still better options I posted here earlier. If it helps, the fit is similar to MD tributes more than any other i've tried so users of those can also help. The main difference is that the SBs go in a bit deeper and imo are more comfortable because their shape accommodates very well to the ear.

The flange on stock tip is too thin IMHO and Sony Hybrids could be fine if they didn't limit the highs a bit (narrow tube?), that's what I felt when I tried them.

I used the super thick stock tips, not the ones that came on the IEM, so that's what I mean by stock tips. I can't speak so much about subjective stuff like preferences, so I can't really share my thoughts on the sound itself.

x2 reason why i don't use them on the SBs

wonder if its possible to stretch them out a bit 

post #75 of 86

as ive said the monster single flange from my md pairs up very nicely with the sb's

it gives strong rumbling bass while retaining the airiness and soundstage found on the ue single flange like tips
