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
First of all you could try to piggyback the medium stock tips on the small ones. I haven't tried this with the Ortofon tips, but the method has been helpful on several occasions when I thought I had a good fit but could maybe use a little more support.
Second, if that doesn't work I recommend Sony Hybrids. These are my preferred tips for the e-Q5 (and several other IEMs). They come in four sizes instead of the usual three and you can cut their stem to any length you like. By default their openings are smaller than the stock ones, therefore bass will be slightly enhanced. The more you shorten their stem their openings will widen as they stretch over the nozzle. I ended up with about half trimmed stems and am very pleased with both sound and fit.
