I find the UE tips much better than any other tip I've tried since they have a larger opening than the hybrids. The Monster foam tips were nice but they were a bit too warm.

No disappointment,  I  figured you were a male. Not many girls come to this forum after all. 

 

So with this flanges you get a better sound and/or fit then with DDM stock tips for example?   Can you explain what do this tips do differently from other flanges?

I personally do not notice the difference much, only if I use comply Foam tip I feel there is just better isolation that is it.

  They help tame the bass and bring up the treble a little, because of the spacious opening. They also  offer me a better fit since they have a small diameter and my ear canals are small. Comply tips will probably choke the recessed highs even more.

I'm not sure how much longer I can keep them for. I was told take as long as I want pretty much but I tried them today and my ears are pretty sore from it regardless up or down. I have my RE-Zero in my ears right now and the comfort from the Zero is amazing compared to the DDM. I was going to try to finish my review today but unfortunately my ears are too sore to listen to them for an hour.

 

These are definitely not an earphone that fits me well most of the time which is pretty rare.

sorry to hear that!  

P.S. still can't believe how some of you can't seem to get used to the fit.  Are your ears that small?

It could also be that your ears are just larger than mine. I've never had trouble with most earphones with the exception being the TF10. I had to flip mod it for it to fit without causing me pain but it lost seal quite often. These are worse. They have an abnormal shape to them, are not secure and heavy.

Luckily you do not own DDM so nothing to worry about.

  Truth be told, the way i wear mine i hardly feel them, but sometimes the right phone falls out when i am moving. All in all, the DDM have great potential that goes to waste due to bad design. Mark is partially right about the tuning too. I've been abing these with the ckm70 for the last week and they are lacking in some domains.

 

  The ckm70 is btw one of the most underrated iems around here. Great build quality, comfortable, even wider soundstage than the ddm, very good transparency, instrument separation and detail across the whole frequency spectrum. They are also fast with good treble, and the bass is of a more reasonable (lesser) quantity with good detail. They don't have the subbass of the DDMs or the same natural timbre (although they don't sound unnatural or metalic like some other phones). They also can be sibilant sometimes since they are brighter, but overall they are VERY high quality dynamics. I just wish a had a re-zero to compare them to it, i suspect they are similar but with added bass.

You know azel, I just went through my collection and found tips that look identical to the ones in your picture, and just tried them. Thank you - they are perfect and so comfortable its uncanny. I have never had this kind of comfort from a universal IEM which is odd.

 

Also, I wish you hadn't said that regarding the CKM-70s because I have a local store having a sale on them and now you make me want to try them. : (

  Yep, the difference for me also is night and day, both for sound and comfort. Does anyone know if the full (non OEM) version of the package includes similar tips? If not the folks at Radius should be spanked.

  How much do they sell them for? If they cost around the 100$ mark i would consider them a bargain, simply because they are perhaps the first dynamic i've tried that is fast enough and bassy enough to sound good with almost every kind of music (don't expect DDM bass quantities though). They are even great for metal. Isolation is poor with them as well though, this is something important i forgot to mention previously. Also James444, the previous owner of this pair, has warned me that they don't sound good with some daps (sansa fuze cowon i9 and a sony, i can't remember which one).

 

  I would recommend these to you without a doubt if i was more experienced in iems but i am not. If you can audition them beforehand though, i would be very interested in your opinion of them. To me, they sound like a good combination of analytical elements with a fun presentation.

 

 I am looking forward to your updates on the matter .
