Kinda curious..I also have the c5s.. Do you find them hard to drive without a amp?. Even my girlfriend was using them and she told me she had to really turn them up..maybe I just have a bad pair..thank you for your help smily_headphones1.gif

It is not as flexible as described in comply website, at least for TX 500 comply foam tips. So TX500 is not a good choice for ie80 from my experience. But it might suits other IEMs better, like my B&W C5.

With comply foams on other IEMs I owned, eg, C5, westone3, se535(the fit to W3 and 535 are not very good either, but at least better than ie80 which I can never put these tips on), the comply sounds muddy. I do not know if it is due to the wax guard that might block the soundstage , or other comply models without wax guard have the similar problem too. Anyway, comply foam tips are comfortable to wear but overall comply is not my taste... Good news, JVC tips are coming in a week:)

Sorry for my bad english:(

the small tips can be on the same size with the big tips. if its too tight you can cut this part in the small tips before then insert it to the big tips.

Hi pacman,

 

Sorry for the late reply. my old amp was damaged 2 months ago and I need to save some dollars for the new one:(  so I can not try it now...  

But I did try C5 with amp before, as far as I can remember,  C5 without amp does sound  good to me, but if you feel amp helps C5 a lot for you, then why not turn them up when you use C5. With the amp it did sound  a bit better, but the improvement is not significant to me(this is just how I feel  though, if you bought it from the authorized dealer, then I do not think it is a pad pair, everyone has his own taste). But I feel the bass is too heavy  and the treble is too harsh as the volume increase.  usually I can bear the heavy bass since I can wear ie80 for longtime with level 3 bass level, but I found I can never wear C5 for more than one hour, otherwise it causes my ear pain. The loop thing was somewhat uncomfortable as well:(

 

  But short time listening is pretty decent, plus the seal and isolation of C5 is very good. Did you try to use the tips from C5 on IE80? It should fit IE80 very well and the isolation is better than the stock tips of ie 80.

What exactly does bass knob do on ie80? Does it increase the sub-bass or mid-bass?

post #4769 of 5634
Sub-bass. About 50Hz down.
