x2. Sound like you are getting a bad seal.

@James and CliesOS

 

I'm using the smallest stock silicone tips. I put them on my ears and kinda twist them to make the seal.

Any tips you guys can recommend?

Have you tried the larger size eartips?

x2, try the larger stock silicons. If you don't have much experience with IEMs, read the IEM insertion guide (chapter 8).

I'm surprised there's been so little interest in this thread compared to the one on the GR-10, especially considering how much less expensive the e-Q5 are.

post #156 of 974

Yes same here, not to mention the disappointment the GR8s seemed to be for a lot of people whereas the EQ7s did pretty well here. 

post #157 of 974

Well, I think the fact the EQ5 seems so close to the EQ7 and the GR10 is a completely different sounding beast from the GR8 is one reason.

post #158 of 974

I agree the e-Q5 is very close to the e-Q7 and at first sight this may seem like underwhelming news. But let's not forget the e-Q7 are terrific IEMs and the e-Q5 even improve on two of their weaker points, highs and cable, and all this for a lower price.

 

Seems to me the GR8 have been clearly second to the e-Q7 by most accounts, so my guess is the GR10 may just be catching up with the Ortofons. Anyway, I'll know for sure soon - GR10 are on the way... ksc75smile.gif

Looking forward to it james, I have a feeling those Grados are going to be a hit or miss.

E-q5 souunds like a deal. The GR10's are definitely extended on top and don't have a noticable upper mid emphasis. Whether you like them or not is another story but they don't sound like an E-q7 is described tonally and very different specs fron the E-q5. The tips and filters look very much like those from the e-q7. I'll be interested in your views on it. It's really great that you've made the effort to add these to the mix. I like the G10 pretty deeply inserted and they're still comfy like that. Looking forward to your take on them.bigsmile_face.gif

 

I think different level of interests might have to do with market availability.

The more I listen to these phones the more I love them!

post #162 of 974

I'm not sure what to expect out of the GR10 since I've never heard a Grado earphone. I'm hoping it has a similar bass texture to the e-Q7 but having a slightly different presentation while being easier on the ear for those who find the housing of the e-Q7 a tiny bit too large.

 

I look forward to your impressions on the GR10 James. Hopefully it's as good as your other MA earphones as that would be quite the earphone if it is and has a smaller housing.

Are these the same as the stock tips from the EQ-5?

btw what do you guys think about Comply Foam tips with the EQ-5s?

Hey guys, so would anyone be able to recommend tips that are in between the large and medium stocks that come with the e-q5? While I think I get a good fit with the mediums, I get the feeling that if I could get something in between the large and medium (the large are too big), I would get an even bigger fit

post #165 of 974

Comply's didnt really do much for me! Then again I've never used comply's before so maybe I was doing it wrong!
