Darn. I'm definitely going to actually have to try and audition those KEFs...

 

I'm seriously considering those Onkyo's... Amazon says "ships in 1-3 months", which is irritating. Might have to wait until they're a stocked item.

Yes and there in lies the problem with these. I love this sound..It does puzzle me that they designed a stunning sounding earphone and then do not include tips that fit more people. The tips included will work with some but not all. Including me. If I didn't have my FXD earphone tips these would be packed up and shipped back.

 

Oh man the sparkle on these earphones. Lol. Sorry guys. I was actually pissed about the tip situation but I am smiling from ear to ear right now however.

This is why there is a hook on these which hold the earphone in place.. The hooks are very comfy and you can't even notice they are over your ears. They are there to hold these big earphones in place.

 

Do the Auvio tips not fit your ears as well (or sound as good) as the JVC FXD ones? I suppose users with fit issues could always purchase a FXD IEM just for the tips but it sure would be more economical/convenient if Auvios were a good alternative as well.

Ya would love to try them but last few weeks been like this.

 

Killa portable amp. Danny's 2Stepdance. The best portable amp I have ever heard. Money well spent. 

More Killa Dac Amp. My new pride n joy the NFB-5. Simply the best home unit I have ever heard for anything. Money even better spent.

Killa Dap in the X3 as you know how they sound Ericp so you know that was a killa deal.

Killa KEF M200.. Absolutely stunning sound minus the retarded eartip selection.. Killa deal again.................

 

Can't spend no mores. Wish I could. I have to stop the spending somewhere. Out of the 2 I went for the KEF M200. I am glad I did as the sound I am hearing is just ridiculous.  However the whole fit thing kinda threw me for a loop...

They easily rank up there with the CKS1000 for me in sonic bliss. An excellent value but I think most guys are interested to see how the new earphones Onkyo and the KEFs will stack up to them..

The reason I chose the KEF and I might try out the Onkyos is Danny had some very high end earphones in his possession and he told me straight out he does not intend to get any of them because how much he enjoys the KEFs so these have the potential to give out some world class sounds for the money.. Sure they are more expensier than most of the iems posted on the threads but they do fall in line for the value requirement of the thread if they end up being the real deal, so I decided to check them out for myself..

It seems all these new earphones are doing things or trying to outdo previous earphones and that is very encouraging.

+1. Have stopped searching since the S2. But that's for now as the KEF looks just gorgeous and will like to hear more comparison on them. I guess Philips doesn't command a following based on the fact that they have always been more of a consumer brand rather than a hifi brand. Probably will take some time for them to stamp their presence. That's just a thought but it could be that. For now, back to the S2 and rock on for me.

It will completely depend on the shape of your internal ear canal. My ears take to rounder tips if there is no housing involved which the FXD tips are. I managed to just barely squeeze round large complys on these. Just barely and they do work but I like the sound of the FXD tips more so..

 

I wish I can just say they included a complete set of tips like Brainwaves or Vsonic does but unfortunately they didn't. You get long wide bore tips that don't really fill the internal canal all that well.. A damn shame really. Not everyone is gonna have FXD tips or complys.

 

You spend $200 on an earphone at least they can provide some much needed variety in the tips. Somehow I feel the design went into tuning the sound but not so much on how important it is to have these fit correct to have people hear these correct.

 

Once you do get a good fit however..These are gonna be hard to beat in the $200 realm of sound.

I just did a quick AB. Don't sell your S2s. They hang in there nicely.. Still one of my absolute faves.. I would never consider selling my pair at all.

I know Danny usually uses medium sized tips on his in ears and I use large. He didn't have issue using the large tips that was included. I will take a picture of the included tips and show you guys why the tip design is not the best..If you guys use large tips for most in ears like I do.. You might have an issue with how these fit and then there is the matter of how your ear are shaped internally as well. But so far that is my observation.

 

Is it worth giving these a try? I will say yes but make sure you get them from Amazon so you can return them just in case.

 

I just tried some Monster tips as well and those fit but slide off. I am sure as more and more guys get these we will be able to find some tips that will work for everyone because from what I am hearing now.. I am gonna have to deal with not having the best tip selection from these.. The sound is absolutely brilliant..The sound layering on these earphones make other earphones sound dull. Lol.

The large does the trick for me. Now to get KEF to send me extras. 

post #12927 of 32875

I just was out for a walk with the Colorfly C3 player and these CKS1000. As I was walking along completely absorbed in the tunes I thought I felt a tiny bit of pressure in my ears so I was about to try clearing them by holding my nose. As I began to do this I thought waitaminnit DO I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EARSconfused_face_2.gif then the brief confusion began, until i thought about it and realized I had the CKS in my ears and the slight pressure was from the tips. 

 

Now that was a strange experience.

 

This speaks to both the comfort/fit of these and the fact that the sound was so damned all-encompassing I was totally immersed in it (and just there ) so much that i forgot where it was coming from!!!!!

 

wow

only reason I felt a tiny bit of need to clear my ears is due to the great fit of the V-moda tips. If they were the next smaller size down I bet I would have been really confused.redface.gif

 

yeah admitting this makes me feel sort of stupid, but i had to tell someone lol.

Oh yes, the S2 is definitely a keeper and can't see myself selling them off. It's has such a neutral yet fun and musical sound to it that makes its a very versatile iem for a lot of genres.

I think I might have found a solution for a better set of tips for these.. If the included tips don't work for you I remembered some guys on the FXD thread that was putting their Complys on backward for a better fit and I tried that this morning. And it worked.

 

It sounds much better than the round complys I was trying last night. So if you guys get these try out some complys. They do work on these.
