HOLY CRAP!!! I think i have found the perfect aftermarket tips for these M200s!!!! 

 

It's the tips that comes with the free IEM that's in the Samsung Galaxy S2. The bore is just as wide/soft as the stock M200 tips, hence all the vents are not covered and provides an amazing seal/ fit.

 

... note that lil' blue striped baggie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

... That's the free stock IEM with the tips on. Damnnnn dat sub bass comes out to play like crazy with these on, hmmmmm maybe a bit too much!!! :eek:

 

If anyone has the Galaxy S2 and still have those free IEMs/ tips around give them a try on these M200s.

Cool, give them a listen (if I can ever pull the X3/Sony XBA3's out of my ears :L3000:...I feel like I have a case of DSitis, ears plugged in and stupid grin on, LOL)

This is true HYPEocondria

On the music front, I know this isn't a genre that gets much notice here, but if anyone loves great harmonized country music, I'd recommend Begonias, by Caitlin Cary and Thad Cockrell (plugging up my ears as I write)...a bit reminiscent of Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris, fine songs, nice blend of voices

You still didn't take those screens out of those FXZ's. I keep looking at images...


They look like the type that both will make a difference in freeing the sound up and like a material that can be taken out and put back in without damaging them. If you take a needle and try to poke straight through you could tell by the resistance before it pokes through how much it is filtering sound and if you want to proceed/think it will work. I'm willing to bet they are fairly thick screens and far from transparent. They probably slow and constrict air flow and changing to something else might yield a nice improvement.

 

I did the same with the CLR100 but those aren't as bassy so they got too bright. But the sound got quicker, livelier, bigger stage. I put a single foam from a DUNU cut in half in each side plus replacement screens I had. Now they are better than most all the other AT's like the CKN70 and also the VSD1's.

 

I'm surprised no one has tried this before on these JVC's. They have the signs of phone that is hard to drive and bass slanted in a way that seems like in doesn't breathe out the front as it should and needs to be freed up. And there are stick on screen available to try like the Hifi Man and such.

OK, now we're talking, really like all 3 of these. Begs the question, though, what makes this metal and Skillet not? (I keep referring back to them, not because I think they are the greatest, just because they are my point of reference, being my 15 year old daughter's favorite band and having heard them quite a bit, including 2 concerts). Maybe it is from lack of being really deep into the music (the way all blues or reggae sound the same to the unitiated), but these all sound like they could easily fit in on a Skillet album (musically, that is, not lyrics, especially the last). A bit of that metal-vocal on the last, which I have no problem with in measured doses, even like it, works well the way a guitar blast/distortion might, still have a tune there. Album recommendations?

On the M200 front-sound tempting sound wise, but if people are comparing them, as far as fit, to the AT 1K, that is discouraging for me. Have managed to get some fit on those AT's, but I'd never call them comfortable, really big, bulky, clumsy, takes a lot of playing with to get a seal, for me.

Here is some more melodic, put on your headphones.

Yeah they are really great tips, very similar to stock JVC tips but the bore is even wider and a lot more soft. Great comfort.

 

For people that are interested you can search them up under Samsung Galaxy S II earphone or similar terms, these can be had on ebay for around $3-$5 shipped.  I am sure others can even find cheaper prices. :)

Oh and there are these unique IEM/ tips that comes with the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic phone as well.  If you own the M200s, you will notice that these are almost exactly like the largest set of stock tips, but the difference is that they are slightly smaller and is softer as well. These should be perfect for people with medium large ears like Ds and Danny. Great fit and seal as well.  Can be hand for like $2 on ebay. :)

So with those Samsung S2 tips along with these Nokia Xpressmusic ones we pretty much have ALL the tips sizes covered. :beerchug:

^ haha i think mochill might have done this already if i recall, but the filter is actually very thin. Was surprised how thin and cheaply glued on it was my initial impressions. :tongue_smile: I want to keep these in stock form and in mint condition as i am still trying to sell them so not going to mod them. But thanks for the advice though, some other prove soul should try it.

And who said Skillet is not metal? Maybe different sub genre with more rock and pop element in the music, but still metal. If you liked the Downstait song, check the whole album "With You In My Mind". 

Here is some more -

I did. Skillet is more alternative than metal and in that matter Linkin Park is too.

... and you are right. Anyone who thinks Skillet and Linkin Park are metal, really needs to be educated on what good metal is.

 

Start here:

Meshuggah

Well, one doesn't necessary have to listen to the heavier subgenres of metal like death, black progressive etc. to know what good metal is but yeah, I also would never call them metal bands. I think that with all the fusion of sub genres it can get a bit hard for people to distinguish them but that what I usually would call alternative, which can include stuff like post-punk, indie rock, new wave and also trashcore and metalcore.
