Those are the only ones I haven't tried. :)
I'll try em out today.
How log did it take for you to get them? Mine showed that they shipped last Friday, the 13th, but they haven't showed up yet
My source was a Sony NWZ E-354, and they sounded perfectly fine like that. Then I got a Zo2, and now it's a whole new world. Sorry I can't be more descriptive...I'm not very good at describing sound, plus I only have about 2 hours listening to the Zo2. But I can tell you I feel like I'm in a nightclub with a well put together sound system when I listen to this set-up.
Ok, I'm listening to them right now with the included foam tips.
Ridiculous how much a difference these make! Sub bass has vastly improved, as has isolation (obviously), but also sound stage, music fullness... still hearing sibilance, but I've only used the earphones for around 3 hours or so, so I'm sure a bit of a burn in will help smooth things out.
My impression of these has improved. :)
I'm no expert but wouldn't burning them in for like 100 hours like most have said and listening then be wise before making a final decision?
Didn't pick up that they're customs.
Based on universal tips, the FA foams are one of the best? Are there others recommended?
You would have to go to an authorized westone audiologist. A dealer can be found here. They will take your impressions and send them to westone on your behalf. You will be able pick them up from the audiologist as well. From what I have read prices can very from each dealer so it might not be worthwhile. If you do, I would highly recommend getting the ottoblast material as it is the only material that doesn't shrink over time.
1964 ears is also another option. They charge $100 for the custom tips but you will have to send them your impressions and your earphones.
