On the first page you can see how ScottFW have recable his 8320, he say the adhesive used from the factory is not strong, but I am so a piece of shell was broken but I could glue it back. biggrin.gif

The Dual double flange tips on Melectronics site works well but you have to do two things. You can cut the bottom end so they fit better in your ear or do what I do which is I forced the tip to go all the way down onto the shank of the earphones and that worked for me. The sound is great using the balanced double flange tips.

 

You guys can get them here. http://www.meelec.com/MEElectronics_Eartips_p/ts1-df-35-bk.htm

 

If you guys want even better comfort. Use some fine grit sand paper and you can shave off as much of the housing as you want and then use model paint to repaint the housing in whatever color you want.

The Meelec double flange tips wil fit snug all the way down the shank. Works well.

thanks dsnuts. I recall seeing that prior in the thread, but then couldnt' find it. It's nice to have someone here 'at the ready' to update and keep things ontrack. It's so difficult to read through a thread and gleen the usefull info and concensus of things. If only someone could design an App that scans through forum threads and gives only the useful info !  But I guess only the human being can read all the text, filter, categorize, prioritize etc. Dsnuts is the App I suppose ! I will try out the cut flange....

This is how the cut was made here. But you should try n just put the tips all the way down the shank first. It worked for me.

For those who have bought multiple sets, do they vary in sound quality one pair to another or is the quality control good enough so they all sound identical?

I think for the most part they are the same sound quality wise. But there are rejects. Mp is good about switching out defects. Even if you remotely think there is an issue. I would get them form MP if your in the US.


I think it has more to do with how big these earphones are. They do house some bigger than average dynamic drivers. This helps with why they sound so good,  Some ears will not work with these..It has to be in the ear all the way in and preferably with a much better tip too. These are great but come with a really lame tip..

rounded over the tip a touch.....hard to say for certain, but it seems to have diminished some discomfort I was having with the end digging into flesh........Also, while i'm no materials expert or metallurgist, it seems that this is not pure plastic, at least the tip seems to be a lamination of plastic and a copper'y looking metal. This is based on what I see when filing it down and the shavings etc. Hard to see from the pic but at the very least, it doesn't seem like pure plastic fwiw

I dont think so, I've bought four with no problems. I think most people's problems are with the fit

I had a problem with fit too and finally abandoned the idea of placing them in my ears as shown in this thread. (L and R straight up) 

 

Instead, I just tried different locations until I found where they were "most comfortable" in my ears, and as far as I can tell, they sound even better.

 

I followed the logic that if they were this well thought out, tuned, ported and overall designed , that they could not possibly have designed something that wouldn't seal and be uncomfortable.

 

They did an amazing  job on the rest of it, how could they miss those two very important points in the design process? What I realized is that they didn't miss on either point. I was wearing them wrong.

 

My wires hang more straight down than before. The wire itself sit in the crease where my ear lobe meets my face. Not only are they more comfortable this way, they are easier to get on and off and I get a better seal. If you are having problems with fit like I was, try moving them around.

I wish the story would have been otherwise being the romantic I am. Patent infringement is a high form of flattery.

 

At least someone knew something good when they heard it.  I wonder what other products they reversed engineered? Those may also be quite good. :)

...been listening to these for the better part of 4 days, nearly all day. Talk about a non-fatiguing sound !  Nothing in the sound annoys or sounds odd. The fit on the other hand is still a bit tricky and can get problematic over long term listening...to that end, I tried joseph's new position. Indeed they do seem less invasive and more comfortable that way. Sort of push up into the ear holding the little wings. Still sounds pretty good but maybe a touch different..... Still have to source some double flange to see if they are more comfy but as far as sound, I'm quite hapy with the standard single flange silicone. Just a little comfort tweek and i'll be entirely content with these.

 

 

regarding josephs 'upward positon' with the cable towards the bottom, it seems the only way to really maneuver them into the ear in that position is by utilizing those little bat wings with the fingers....so he maybe correct in thinking this was a design feature/intended listening position. In any case, I seem to be able to get a full seal and decent sound. Will need to swap some tips again since the sound is a bit changed but.....

dsnuts says these respond well to a little extra ampage// not that I feel they need it, but any suggests for an equally cost consious synergystic amp ? $40 cmoy perhaps?
