What are the best eartips for sm3?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Iv been thinking about getting the sm3's but im worried that i wont get the most out of the iem with the eartips they supply. What would be the most comfortable and produce the best sound quality without buying customs?

I'm assuming he means that come with them.

Mine didn't come with the new tips, so I'm using the double flange ones that came with the RE0's and they're the best for me.

That's only the new batches mate, although you can order them from the Earsonics website, although the postage they charge pretty much rules that out, they wanted €30 to deliver them to England.  I've heard Handheld Audio may be stocking them in the near future, with a decent postage rate I hope.

So i can use other manufactures tips? and they will work fine with the iems?

Sure as long as they fit, or you find a way to make them fit. Why wouldn't they?

The stock double silicones that ship with the new reshelled SM3s are perfect to my ears.

For me, the Shure triple flanges are perfect. I don't have the new b-flange silicones that Earsonics is shipping. Maybe I should ask for a pair. But the Shures or the Monster triples (Comply core required as adapter) are both very good.

I'm having great success with JAYS single flange silicones. They fit the stem perfectly, and create a very solid seal. They also provide a more open, spacious sound than any other universal tip I've tried on them, I think because of their slightly larger opening. Shure black foam 'olives' are also quite good on them. So, you do have options... basically try anything which fits the skinny nozzle IEMs.

Triple flange that fits Monster earphones, with any proper spacer to keep it secure.
