that would be pointless. you're still using the comply's for the seal.

Most tips actually lacked bass so badly, mid-low all, it was like listening to crappy headphones. I started using them with mh1c tips and they sound better, but still not as good as they were claimed to be.



 



Did I get fake ones?



I doubt there are fake ones around, I hope not. Box and stuff looks like monster product. Anybody know if fakes are around? Otherwise they will be a big disappointment for me.


 




You will definetely get good bass and detail etc, you must try all the tips you can find, comply tips give excellent bass results, don't give up on them, they are a good complement to my Westone W4R, Sennheiser IE800, Sony XBA4ip, Klipsch X11i and Westone 2

I only got a decent seal with the largest round ones, but I got even better seal with Meelectronics double flanged.  The Gratitudes have a bass boost, so you shouldn't find that they lack punchy bass.

I love these earphones for any live recorded music or albums I have, They are just superd. I agree highs can be sibilant sometimes but il put that down to my low bit rate files. Otherwise they have that musicality to them that I just love and wayy comfy too at least for me.

If its still on sale go buy one!

Hey guys!

Just got mine the other day and so far i am very pleased with my purchase. Quality is great, i like the flat cable, isolation is good, and from my short experience with it, they sound good.

Sony Hybrid tips made a super seal and isolation. Sound is perfect with them too. 

Today a was comparing them with Sennheiser IE800, aaaaaand....

IE800 were better:) 
Also at the same time i was trying Westone 30 Pro and they were -+... on par? heeeeeey... yes:) They are on the same level, sometimes W30 were better, sometimes Gratitudes... 
Sources were Iriver AK120, Nano7+Ibasso T3.

I'd agree. Need the right tips, in my case medium CKP200 regular(not the umbrella ones) tips. Sold my SA7 limited as the Gratitude are as good and better in certain areas. Sound a fair bit better than the MA-750 did and not as good as the Mikros 90 but competitive.

 

Cable is not so good though as it stiffens in the cold so they stay indoors most days this winter.

Also i was trying SA7 today. Again only with Sony Hybrids i've found a good seal. Sound was very good. I like it. TWFK inside? The best TWFK i've ever tried. With AK120 combo was very good. Stop! Still Gratitudes were having better bass and better treble (much better)... Some love:)

yeah,that is bad, but spring coming:)

Not the the TWFK or twins but larger bass driver/small treble driver config. Still, either they didn't tune it right or the cable smears the bass some. Whatever, I agree the Gratitude can have cleaner, more articulate bass and more airy, smoother treble that is much better behaved. I also like the SA7 but might as well recoup some funds for new stuff since I was/have been fine with the Gratitude.

At this point I only really listen to my Klipsch X7s and Monster Gratitudes, depending on what I want to listen to.  Everything else just kind of languishes (except for the SHE3590s, those are the workout buds)

My favourite DAP for Gratitudes is still Hifiman 601LE. Super Combination!

So far the cons that i picked up are that its color is girly( my friends made this statement), the earphones are heavy, because of the weight sometimes i have seal problems and the big case is not very sturdy the magnet gets out of place and i have not even used it at least not outside. But sound wise i am impressed and i enjoy it.
