Earsonics SM3 Tip Replacement Help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

As the title says, I just lost 3 of the 4 included stock bi-flanges.  T.T And I desperately need to find tips that fit/work well with the SM3's.

 

I couldn't stand the comply tips as the sound became much warmer and the treble ever so more "recessed".  I looked into the Sensorcom bi-flanges that people call "audio bliss" but I can't find them shipping to anywhere in the US.  I have looked in the Trade forums but others with the same "WTB" haven't received word from anyone...

 

What do you guys prefer?  I heard a lot about the MC tri-flanges as well but apparently they required a bit of modding to make them fit right.

 

Overall, I would love my SM3s even more if the treble was a bit more pronounced and at the moment I can't listen to them as I'm missing one tip.

 

If you guys have any suggestions as to where I can purchase either replacement or different brand tips that fit and/or work well on the SM3s I would be overjoyed!

 

As usual, thank you so much!

     The community here at head-fi is definitely very helpful (you guys helped me purchase my first serious IEMS) so thanks in advance!

You can purchase the Sensorcom tips online. It takes around a week to arrive, but it is well worth it for the SM3 in my opinion. They blew away every other tip that I tried on the SM3.

 

Here is the link to the Sensorcom tips. I must also add that I used the core of a Shure yellow foam to keep the tip attached snug to the nozzle of the SM3 (because the SM3 nozzle is not that thick and the tip does not fit that securely to the nozzle without the core--and I didn't want to risk the tips getting stuck in my hear, hence the Shure core).

 

You can also try the tip mod for the SM3 that I posted over here in the second EarSonics appreciation thread (it was locked unfortunately). Although I initially thought my tip mod sounded the best, I realized that it was not quite up to par with the Sensorcom double-flange tips, but it was definitely better than any of the other tips (including Comply). With the tip mod you can make many pairs (well over 6) of tips for only around ~$5.

 

Let me know if you get your hands on either tips!

Hey yeah I did look at the site but do they ship internationally?  Because the price isn't in US Dollars =\  (Do they even accept us dollars)

Yes they ship internationally. I bought a pair of some other tips from them (since I got my sensorcom tips form Bennyboy71, but they were originally sold on this site) and I live in New York; they ship from UK I believe. The amount will just be converted to dollars when you see it on your credit card/debit card statement.
