Thank you. Much appreciated.

Not sure, I haven't been able to get Sunrise to replace mine to confirm whether or not any improvements have been made.

is it possible to buy ear clips for these? Also what ear plugs are suitable? lendmeurears didnt send me any except for the ones already installed on the phones. .-.

You mean cable guides? Pretty much any will work - these have short enough strain reliefs. MEElec sells some, as does Phonak.

That's why it's important to fill out your profile - if I don't see a location, I assume it's US. That said, I still see $6.95 international shipping on MEElec with some tips, the cable guides, and an earphone in my cart.

 

 

Lots of eartips will fit - anything for a 4.5 - 5.5 mm nozzle should work, including the standard MEElec ones (for M9 and M11+), Sennheiser, UE, etc. If you want foam Comply T400s will fit.

I got a question..

I received a new pair of the IE but i don't really like the feeling of it in my ears. The Sennheisers was a lot more comfortable. What eartips do u guys recommend? Maybe this one from shure? http://www.amazon.com/Shure-PA910M-Replacement-SE530PTH-Earphones/dp/B000NDHIKY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321471599&sr=8-1

Or this? http://www.amazon.com/Sony-EPEX10A-WHI-Replacement-Earbuds/dp/B001RB24V4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1321471578&sr=8-2

 

I want a good sound and nice feeling in the ear.

The Shure tips won't fit without major modification. Hybrids will fit but you need to figure out what's bothering you about the fit before you try to remedy it with eartips.

post #190 of 258

They are to slippery and if i move they kind of move out of my ear. Have to constantly put them back in. Did not have the same problem with my Sennheiser cx-400II.

Btw i received finally my new pair (new batch) Sunrise Xcape IE and i can inform u all that the problem still exists. I still have the volume imbalance after listening for a while. The volume dropped down again really bad. I guess i buy something else and take my money back.

 

ljokerl View Post I really like the sound of these phones. But unfortunately i cant accept the fact i can only enjoy them for just a short amount of time. I need something else and u know what the sound signature of these pair are. What is close like this one? I don't use an amp and not planning to use one so i would prefer one witch does not need an amp.

Try Monster super tips, by the looks of things the size of the nozzle is similar with GR07

That's unfortunate. I was hoping they would take all of the complaints to heart and revive an otherwise excellent product. 

 

The closest thing I have heard to these in sound signature that is also slightly better but not a whole lot more expensive is the Fischer Audio Tandem. There's a review of it my long IEM thread with some Xcape IE comparisons. Not sure how you will like the fit.
 

 

post #193 of 258

Yeah, they really look and sound great but i hate this problem. I'll try to burn them in for a while. Maybe the problem will go away? It's worth a shot.

The tandem doesn't really look nice :) I know i'm not buying clothes but still. It's so hard to choose something. I don't want to spend to much on a pair of earphones either. Something like 100 dollars is my budget. I can spend a little bit more if they really look and sound great tho.

 

Btw i guess it doesn't really have the exact same sound signature. But i prefer a little bit bass as i watch a lot of movies. Listen to all kinds of music so i really enjoy the sound of the IE. I could enjoy other signatures to if they deliver quality sound.

Do the IE have the same nozzle diameter as Xcapes?

 

I have excellent results using Radio Shack's hybrids on my Xcape v.1's - great sound, excellent seal (Sunrise OEM tips kept losing seal), and they stayed on the nozzle just fine, unlike every other tip except the OEM's. They are extremely comfortable in my ears.
