D, DD is also referring bra sizes. biggrin.gif

I don't think anyone owns both models :p  If they do, that would help out potential purchasers :p

Not sure if anyone here has jumped on the IE60 wagon yet. I think they look pretty sweet though from a design standpoint.

Here a picture of the IE60, it looks nice also, I think a new dedicated thread will be started soon :)

I'm about to buy a pair of ie80's and going to use with iPhone 4-  would an amp (pico slim or headstage arrow) make a significant increase in quality?

You'll for sure notice some difference but it's not going to be super major, the IE80's are 16ohms so pretty easy to drive.

Mother of God. Lost my Sony hybrid tips or whatever they are called, and the IE80s are arriving the next week (if I'm lucky). I think I'm gonna die before they arrive.

HAhaha !    !    I love your passion.

 

Please don't forget to leave your impressions - with or without the hybrids.

 

Personally I think Meelec long single flange tips a amazing for ie7 so probably same for ie80. Great seal & no negative impact to sound. Hybrids are little narrow so will effect highs.

They both work really well with the IE80s and FX700s. The V-moda work best with FX700 and seem to give even more micro detailing. I'm sure they also have these tips in medium and small depending on your ears. My ears take large though.

For you guys who like Triple-Fi Silicone Tips but want a better build ala the Sony EX-10A's (with double silicon hard/soft composition) but unlike the Sony's, have a LARGE IE-X size opening...guess where some REAL nice tips can be had....wait for it....Radio Shack!

Plus the flange is extended a bit more than Triple-Fi's or Sony's so they sit nice n' deep-er.

The hybrids alter too much the sound, look for tips from Ultimate Ears, JVC or another one allready posted before in this thread. They are to narrow like Archy say.
