Hi, I am new to the forums and also new to buying quality IEMs. I had a pair of Klipsch Custom 3s that I purchased a few weeks ago that recently got stolen. While the cord design was one of the worst I have ever seen I did enjoy the way they sounded. (Being that this was my first decent pair of IEMs I am not sure how they compare to other phones, most anything I could have purchased as an upgrade to my Zune earbuds probably wouldve sounded amazing to me at this point) So after just shelling out money a few weeks ago on phones I did not want to shell out much more cash and hesitantly bought the Superfi 4s at a great price.
Problem is that none of the included ear tips fit my ears very well and they are one of the most uncomfortable pair of phones I have ever used. ( I have pretty small ear canals with my left being smaller than my right which makes for a nightmare fitting phones) I was all set to buy some Comply tips but read somewhere on here (cant find the posting again) that they muddy the bass with these pretty badly. As for the sound quality of the phones they sound absolutely horrible to me, I realize this is because I am probably not getting a really good seal but no amount of pressing or adjusting (even with the best fitting included tips) helps the sound at all, the highs are piercing, the mids seem awfully recessed and the bass woeful. I know I am going from a dual driver with my last set to a single now but should the sound quality have dropped off this much? What tips (if any) bring these to life and offer decent comfort? I dont mind modding something if thats the only answer. If this has been asked before I apologize, I did search for an answer on here but could not find what I was looking for.
Thanks for the help!
