ill have to look into it, i wouldnt think any other tips would fit these. they could be a necesary addition, just a bit pricey for tips.

Silicon tips with wider bores tend to be able to stretch onto the nozzles. My preferred tip choice for the M200 is a pair of TF10 tips in medium.

 

I posted earlier in this thread with some findings. YMMV.

I bought those tips based on Peter's recommendation and those work well also.

Is there anyone that can do an A/B with the Monster Gratitudes and the Only IE-HF300?

I did a quick listening with both yesterday and the Onkyo's do have a fuller sound with more midbass and a little bit more bloated sub bass (these might change with more burn in though). The Gratitudes are a bit brighter and have a bit more sparkle. So far I'll put the Gratitudes as the better one but listening to classsical music and Pink Floyd I prefered the Onkyo's. There's something about the really big sound I feel that the Onkyo's deliver that I find very appealing though (maybe the correct english word is that they're more bombastic, but in a good way). I don't find the Onkyo's to have any sibliance at all so the top end is very smoth. I still need to get more time on the Onkyo's before doing a better AB session so please read this as first impressions.

CDJapan just emailed me that my ATH-M70s have now shipped. Hopefully via EMS I'll have them by Next Wednesday.

Monster Vektr's are not worth it at the retail price of $199, but they are a lot more--how do I put this--acceptable at the $99 price of Walmart. They are the second best of Monster's full sized headphones.

That won't be happening until Christmas. I've already had to barter my way into using my Nexus 5 early. Fiancee isn't going to let me have anything else before Christmas. Sorry guys.

You can count on it mate. Cheers! :beerchug:

I'll probably do it together with the AX-60 when they get here for the loan tour.

One of the greatest voices in R&B ever doing a cover of a great John Lennon song. I love it!

GREAT NEWS: YAMAHAS are better than anyone has right to expect...

heres my experience after 12 hours with the YAMAHAS: one night of burn in through computer and dragonfly DAC through iFI power stabilizer:

my roommate Silver, a guitarist songwriter, listening to  Mark Knophler's album Privateering, disc 1, song 1 Rosebud, begins to smile

at vocal lead...then when lead guitar comes in BEGINS TO CRY from ecstatic experience with quality of sound.  when song is over

says "oh my GOD, " and walks away stunned....  my experience is similar.....these phones have an sound quality (and comfort) that

puts out a field of sound way bigger than their size or price and indeed are PRICELESS for the accuracy and emotion stirring experience

that they convey. true for blues as well, Steve Miller was never so blue....on electronica still needs more burn in for Ott audio pyrotechnics to

be coherent, but still excellent.....  if you care about the quality of your sound do yourself a favor and grab one of these phones

for yourself or loved ones of the holidaze... they are a TRUE DISCOVERY.  this is not hype.  this is the report back from the edge of ECSTATIC LISTENING. these things are performing at the level of my best headphones...they have the liquid mids of the RS1s, the bass and sub bass is right on, the soundstage of my w1000s, and rhythm of my es700s, all integrated into a single sub100$ phone.  I begin to laugh when it think about what these will be after a full burn in....too good to be true, except its not...these are the real deal and more....and the comfort of the velour pads is spot on...kudos to YAMAHAs sound engineers...and this discovery thread for discovering these....Knophlers harmonica is making my head turn in circles now....but the voices and liquid guitar are making me almost weep with joy....im hearing the emotions the artist was conveying not just the sounds,   and isn't that what high end audio is all about...

Thread Starter 

I agree with DrBlue 110%.. Out of all my gears I have bought past and present. I don't know if I own another phone that has the price to sound ratio of these cans..The sound quality speaks for itself..An unbelievable sound from a portable can that has a full blown open sound with exacting detail and sounds so natural with emotion to the human voice. It is one amazing sounding can..I think going into this Holiday season..Take these cans very seriously..An absolutely fantastic buy and one for the collection you should not over look. What Dr Blue just mentioned here is just the beginning.
