You have to Buy them to even know if it fits you or not.. no way you will ever know by looking at pictures.

They are only 7 dolars,thats.... nothing, if it doesnt fit then you can give them or even sell them for real cheap.   7 dolares, thats what a lot of people waste smoking some cigarrets on a few hours, 7 dolars of smoke.

 

They didnt work for ME, but that doesnt mean it doesnt work for "no-one", there a lot of people happy with them, i even gave them to my brother and he loves them because it fits him.

Comply TX-400

Thanks Dsnuts! These are great! The sound is unreal for a 7.11 IEM. I love the 48" cord. Most cords are 36" and end up pulling up on the bottom of my shirt when I have my iPhone in my pocket, causing me to either put the phone in my watch pocket or hold it. I use the biggest double flange tips from my IE8s on these and they are almost perfect. The only problems with these are that they are big and the nozzle is shallow so they probably won't fit a few people. One ithe thing is that I you have bad recordings, theses will definitely show it. I have a bunch of tracks in regular mp3 format and these make them sound very tinny and scratchy. The ones I have from iTunes recorded in 192k sound good so I think anything above 192 will sound fantastic with these.

Speaking of Comply tips (not to hijack this thread)...anyone tried the S series? Are they total crap? Also curious about the Whoomp's for earbuds. Anyone tried them?

I have ten different tips in my collection and the ones that fit my ears best are the ones it came with.  I just got my order for 5 more pair.  Some will be gifts but I'm also curious about quality control.  I want to see how break in really improves the sound too.

 

This is cheap fun...

I SO want to get a bunch of these and play with them (likely ruining a few) and try to make some sweeeet 12 dollar homemade customs with some sort of industrial silicon stuff. :-)

The wife came over to see my goodies and I had her try a set of these phones.  She surprised me by saying she heard lyrics  that she has never heard before.  She usually has nothing to say about my Hi-Fi stuff.  So anyway I lost two pair here, one for her and one for her secretary.  She said the ear tips fit fine.  Like I said, I was surprised.  With three for the nephews I'm suddenly short of 8320's again.  

 

My second pair I tried did not have a little harmonic buzz at hi freq that I noticed in the first pair that is about a week old.  The sound did not need a break in however the ear tips seemed a little larger than my week old pair.  Maybe the tips get mmore flexible with use.  They still fit ok.  Same great sound with classical music.

 

Well I'm going to have to think up another Monoprice order...

I've ordered a pair due to some recommendations from people here on Head-Fi and I have to say I'm excited. But I here a lot of issues with the stock tips being very large and painful. I'm also on a budget so I really can't buy tips that would fit my size but what I was thinking was pretty much this:

I would consider myself a noob in being an "audiophile" but I was curious to ask if this (link above) would work? Since no one even suggested this...

If you have other tips from other earphones try those first. If not go to radio shack and get a pair of Auveo tips. These tips cost as much as the earphones but are completely worth getting as they are actually better quality than Sony hybrids.. Worth checking out.

First pair im planning to recable, my second pair i'm thinking about upping it with detachable cables. (Will be posting what i have done) just waiting on everything to be shipped in. Now, for my 3rd pair i'm thinking of getting my friend to make a nice wood casing. We'll see how good we can get these things. Heck, maybe we might be able to get these like the Grado's compared to the modding style that most people are doing because there such cheap IEM's

Making a new casing, they are dynamic, so i should imagine you will have to make an almost exact copy of the inside of the casing, of coarse i could be wrong there.

Here are my insights for this IEM.

 

It's a sleepy afternoon at work and my colleagues are quite noisy, so I've decided to dig into some songs. While I'm on the mood for it, I went with Angela Bofill's Break it to me gently and This time I'll be sweeter (don't ask me why) :D  Anyway, I prepared my mind/ear and think of the songs as it should be clear and her voice should be convincing enough to make the ambient a little "live" .  The monoprice 8320 gave that impression, the voice floats well with the mix, instrument separation is more or less close to my BA, there is enough width/height to visualize the notion of soundstage. There is a slight boost in low frequencies among the range, well it's what I've heard,some of the low-mid frequencies however tends to get uncontrollable on some parts of the song. The highs are not annoying, it matches well with the mids. I am surprise by the SQ of this IEM, for the price, the experience is irreplaceable.

 

:D
