From Metal to Electronic thru to Beastie Boys, Clapton, Buddy guy, Faith no More,
Cake and so on...

I find I have to bump up Rockbox's treble and Mids on the E10's to get the sound I want, despite what I have said in earlier posts...

I use no EQ on the Fiio...
Once the settings are done though...

Which tips are you using? Have you tried the double flanges?
post #92 of 98

I have been using the mediums...from the CK-700

Briefly tried the Bi flanges, when I first got them, but did not like the feel...not "in" enough feeling.

 

I have trouble getting as good a fit in the left as I do in the right....or so it seems to me...

I tried all the mediums I had....they were all pretty much the same...

 

After seeing your post..I got out the Bi flanges..

 

Inserted them with the ear pull technique..though..where is the bass gone...the seal is no good...

 

Pushed them in and twisted them a bit more....felt them sort of lock in...

added the Fiio EQ 2nd mode....

 

Persto...I had bass mids treble....mids are still a bit out, but I will tweak the RB parametric EQ later...

Thanks for your advice Muzeick...

 

Comply TX-400 coming any day now....they will be great im sure...

 

Edit..addressing my cant get a fit the same a right ear...the left actually is ( when i feel the casings) in further than the right by around 3 - 5mm

Fit is such an important thing with iems, you are right. I wonder how many people never really hear their music as well as they should, simply because they are not using the right tips for them?

At least Soundmagic bundle a big variety of tips for y to try with the E10 - very generous of them.

As for you own setup - is there a reason you are using the Fiio E6? I have one myself, but lately I don't bother with it, and just use an app on my Galaxy S3 to give me a bit more volume. Does the E6 help with the Clips output? Also, why are you using the second EQ option on eh E6? Sorry for all the questions - just trying to get a grasp on how you are listening.

With rockbox and the preamp settings I use both lower the volume..the E6 gives me the ability to increase the volume and maintain SQ...and avoid clipping..

 

 

After using the Bi flange for 30 mins they are too uncomfortable and I cant get them to sit nicely.

Went back to medium singles and no EQ on E6...

 

The reason I went to 2nd option on E6 was Bi flanges seem to increase the distance from driver to drum, and lowering the bass for me...when i held them in there they sounded great...so to compensate i used EQ 2 on E6 which increases the bass freqs slightly.

 

But have switched back for comfort and SQ reasons..

 

Hoping Comply's with eradicate this issue for me...will they change the mids highs?

If you can somehow get access to a pair of hifiman re-400s, the little double flange tips that come with them are actually even better with the E10 than any of the stock Soundmagic tips. Ironically, these Hifiman rips sound rubbish on the re-400s themselves (this being a massively overhyped iem if you ask me).

On the E10s though, they just excel.

As for Comply, let me know how you get on. I have never liked foam tips on iems but haven't tried with the E10 so would interested to see what you think.

will do that mate

Putting comply tips on muffle the sound quite a bit. The e10s are already a bassy pair of iems (to me) so the comply tips didnt help the sound. It did really help the fit though since I didn't like any of the stock silicone tips. So I did the reverse mod to the comply tips (cut the excess foam off the front of the tip and put it on backwards).

The result is that it just muffles the sound just a little bit and makes the bass more smooth and not as boomy.

Reverse Mod huh...

 

If I cant get the sound sig I want with EQ I may consider this...
