Review, Future Sonics Atrios: Comparison between different tips - Page 12

post #166 of 237

I had a similar experience with the JAYS tips, way uncool. Are you using something like the Monster tips adapter to get the hybrids to fit on your Atrios?

post #167 of 237

Yeah I use one adapter per nozzle.  I can probably fit 2 on each nozzle and I don't know if it would make the hybrids more secure.  The strange thing is the Sony Hybrids feel more secure on the nozzle than Monster Supertips.  So for sure I won't be using Monster Supertips on them.

Interesting, the Monster tips feel reasonably secure on them for me.

I'm not saying the Monster Tips don't fit on them, but I think the Hybrids fit better, and if I had issues with the Hybrid, no way am I taking a chance with the Monster Tips.  Guess I'm just scarred from yesterday.  So until I'm randomly feeling mighty adventurous, I'm only using tips I can fit directly on the nozzle hahaha.

 

EDIT:  By the way, which of the FS sized tips do the Sensorcom tips compare to?

If I may ask, how did you lengthen the stem?  I can achieve a good seal with the small stock bi-flanges, but only if I apply pressure.  As soon as I remove pressure the tip slips out of my canal.

Guys, I can confirm the new Atrio's come with the cream and black foams. The blacks do indeed seem more dense than the cream foams. Not sure what, if any, difference this will make to SQ or comfort (maybe more pressure on the ear canal compared to the softer cream foams?)

 

I am just using my cream foams from my older pair Atrio's...no point wasting them.

The MG7 sound AMAZING! No burn in yet so the bass should get tighter but the highs and sound stage are improved over the previous Atrio.

 

I'm going to burn them in and I can already feel that this may be the best money I have ever spent on audio equipment !!!

Technically I didn't lengthen the stem.  What I did was take an extra tip (I bought a pack of 5 or something) and cut the stem off it, then put that on the Atrio nozzle first so that the actual biflange tip can't slide as far down onto the nozzle.  It's not a great solution, but it's quick and easy.  I can grab a photo later if you need one.

Ah, excellent - sounds easy enough.  Thanks very much!  I'll give it a try.

Cool!  Let us know what you think!

post #175 of 237

Thank you for making this thread. Right now, I am using the grey tips from fs for my atrio m5 mg7 "environmentally friendly" addition headphones because they are most comfortable at the moment. I will give the small silicone tips a try for sure later on.

Is the FS site down or is it just my connection?  I was going to order some more yellow foams...

The foam density should only effect comfort as both uses the same sound tube.  I can only use the black foams as the cream feels a little too itchy inside my ears.

 

Also, anybody here purchased the FS custom sleeves and experienced shrinkage with the silicon material?  My right piece either shrunk a little or my ear canal grew within the last 8 months.  I'm not sure if they are made out of medical grade silicon or not as I've been told that it is, it shouldn't shrink. Anyhow, I took advantage of the half off coupon from atrio.me to get a new set of sleeves.

The blacks are definitely causing more pressure in my ears so it seems the density does make a difference to comfort. I agree about the cream foams, they do cause a bit more itch but they sound better to me.

Yeah site's working this morning.  Was just a temp thing.

 

I prefer the cream foams too - I think they're more durable than the black's and they don't itch my ears, so all is well in the world.
