Review, Future Sonics Atrios: Comparison between different tips - Page 16

post #226 of 237

Who sells FS medium size silicone tips?

I went onto their site, Atrio.me and the tips are not listed.

 

Appreciate the help.

I used the Monster tips on my MG7 and they worked out the best for me. Yesterday I used the Monster's foam hybrid and I was quite entertained by the MG7. For the Monster hybrid to work you will need to remove the cores of the Atrio's foam eartips and slide them over the earphone stems then the Monster tips will fit. Too bad the MG7 signature is not to my liking. They sound a little too dry and a tad too closed up for me. But I could get used to them if I didn't have the bug to try something else.

The Atrios sound dry to you?  I have heard many, many descriptions of these, but dry has not been one of them.  

 

I personally don't care for Monster supertips on them; they're comfy but the sound is poor.  Maybe try a different tip or something?

 

Alas, if they aren't so your liking, sell em off to someone who will enjoy them!  etysmile.gif

Would a fiio help?

Nope.  If you have broken them in and don't like their sound out of an iPod, then they probably aren't for you.

Ok after some more listening I'm going to cave and give up. The Oval Klipsch tips help, but the fit is just a skosh loose. Not worth it when I have better fitting alternatives. Will probably gift it to someone with smaller ear canals than me.

That's too bad, they're really nice IEMs once you've found the perfect fit.  I think the klipsch ovals are too hard to work with because there is no marker for positioning on the M5s like there are on Klipsch IEMs.

Has anyone been able to extend the life of the FS foams by washing them? I haven't had any luck but maybe I am doing it wrong. The FS foams, white and black, only last a week for me.

The only way I know of to extend the life of FS foams is to not use them.

Are there any websites that have a special on the M5?  I know there was a place where they could be had for $100.   I need a new pair, my faithful M5s were stolen this weekend after a year and a half of extremely satisfied ownership.

 

So my first inclination is to buy another pair, I don't really have a desire to try other IEMs

I just received my Atrio Pros. The Atrio double flanges didn't work for me - they would frequently collapse and block all sound. After lots of experimentation, I settled on the Shure/Westone large white triple flanges with the smallest flange remove. I use the same setup on Westone 4 & UM3X and on the Shure SE535LTD.

 

My Atrios came with the PASSCHAL recycled rubber case - really nice case!
