I gotta say, I really don't see what all the fuss with the Monoprice 9927/8320 is all about. They sound so thin and lifeless, and the treble is super harsh.

 

it just a different kind of fun, compared with more bassy iem it lack bass but in exchange for more real and dramatic mids. I like the soundstage,separation and how vocal are so intense in monoprice. I feel weird sometimes when I used philips 3580 for long enough then move to monoprice, I can fell the lack of bass. I just need to get used to the sound and it sounds amazing.

well i think i just may have firgured this molding thing out...  created another set..  im not sure if it was the steps taken or the amount i used.. but i did have to trim away a bit.. the amount of mix used was half of a westone pack for both ears..  and since i wasnt sure how it was going to turn out i didnt take any before or step by step photos... but the steps are the same as previous

 

my silicone molded eartips..  perfect fit, isolation isnt so great only because the port hole is open and is allowed a space to port..  these are my first set of monoprice so they have tons of hours on them.. sounds great and doesnt look as ugly as the others except for a lil piece i left to allow for easy and quick removal  and yes i cut my hair today..lol..   here is a link to the other photos  showing the actual earphone itself..  http://s185.beta.photobucket.com/user/jaejw1/library/#/user/jaejw1/library/ear%20tip%20molds?&_suid=136304398489007336322394290521

 

i think im liking these a lot more than my others..

Nice. Looks much cleaner than other DIY molds I've seen. Like the haircut too etysmile.gif

post #3364 of 4143

funny thing is ... i put away all my others in favor for the ones above... it could just be psychological..  but oh well.   i have the over the ear guides on them now and had them on for a couple of hours straight with no problems,,

 

cost factor..  33cents for the double flanges (from buyincoins.com) that i trimmed,,  about 30cents worth of  silicone material and maybe about 30cents for the ear dams  for a grand total of 93 cents....  beats paying 100bux for custom tips or 155bux for those other vynl tips.

 

  i would say that this mold is much better and more comfortable than any tips i could find...   i currently have no more use for my  5bux a pair t-400 complys or the other triple and double flanges i spent money on....

1. Still the best. Punchy, but not big bass. But when they sit in my ears for more then 10 mins, and I try to move/remove them, it hurts.

 

2. Relatively big bass when inserted deeply. They sound a bit dirty. Bass little boomy.

 

3. No dirtiness. The bass seems a bit separated from the other frequencies. Bass quantity is like with 2., also little boomy.

 

Little driver-flex with 2,3.

How is the sound with these molds? Do you want to make silicone molds from these pink impressions?

the sound is the same...  im using the double flanged silicone tips ,,, i just trimmed off the flanges which left just the tube (sleeve)

 

i dont have a desire to have actual molds made for these earphones, since i dont have that kind of money right now... but i am interested in the COSMIC EARS. 

 

but until then i will just use my 8320's...

Are they easily removable from the IEMs? I've always wanted to try some customs out on my TF10s, but I worry about getting silicone/getting them stuck on my expensive IEMs. They use the same Comply size (-400) so think I could pick up some 8320s, and your supplies, then move them to my TF10s if it works out well?

I have said this many times, but it is funny how differently these sound from person to person.

 

With my (smallest size) Comply T-400 Tips, the 9927/8320 sounds SO good.

 

I have had a decent amount of headphones over the last few years... none of them too high end.

 

 

But I HONESTLY would take my 9927/8320 over the following: 

 

Koss PortaPro
AWEI ES800M
Panasonic RP-HT21
V-Moda M-80 (White Pearl)
Digitech (Jaycar) Pro Monitors

AKG K422
JVC FX-101
Brainwavz HM3
JVC Marshmallow
JVC HAS160 FLATS
MEElectronics A161P
Philips CitiScape Uptown
Panasonic RP-HTF600-S
Panasonic RP-HTX7PP-K
Philips CitiScape Downtown

 

 

The only few headphones that I have listened to that I thought that sounded better than the 8320/9927 are:

 

Shure SRH750DJ
Alessandro MS1
 

 

 

Soo...   I don't know...  Something about them sounds "just" right to me. 

..

yep.. very.. just cover the nozzle and any port holes and your done...  i found out yesterday that they seem to fuse themselves to the silicone sleeves  (from the tips i use

)  which is not a problem just make sure you cover the sleeve hole or stuff it with cotton...   the way the tips are done i can use any of my other earphones with it and not worry about the pressure on my eardrums...  

 

the AWEI ES800M fit like a charm with no problems.. no pain while inserting

My Comply tips came yesterday and I had no issues with comfort with the stock buds but these are even more comfortable and the isolation is far better! I still find myself EQing up the bass though when I'm on the go

if one find these to lack bass, block the center hole with tape and place in a pinhole vent with a needle. Nice boot, without overdoing it which will happen with a full tape covering.
