Thanks, I'll do that before I make up my mind about them. My eq might need some more tweaking as well, but since I tapered down some of the treble I'm liking the smoother sound I'm getting out of them.
After I burn them in and if I still am not totally happy with them, I'll try the different tips. I'm glad to hear I didn't get a different version. Honestly, I'm probably going to pick up a couple more pairs either way, since I'm still liking the sound and it looks like they might be discontinued.
I just ordered 3 more from Amazon for ~$25 lol these are so cheap it's ridiculous. Aside from actual burn in, your ears also need to get adjusted to the sound. I use the stock tips and find them good enough, a lot of people use the sony hybrids on these but it's true that their small bore takes away some treble and adds midbass, which I don't really like. But it might not be so bad if you're using eq to reduce treble anyways. Another great thing about these is that apart from the sub bass, they are fairly well balanced so they respond really well to eq. Sound great at lower volumes stock too, at higher volumes the bass and treble do get a tee bit out of hand but that's what makes them fun. Try the monoprice cheapos for something more neutral.
