Sennheiser IE800 IEM's - Page 130

I agree. Hugo does make the IE800 and many other IEMs sing.

Does anyone have IE80 tips and could tell me about the fit on IE800? Which non-complys are recommended?

post #1938 of 6254
So Comply T500 fit the 800's? Any mods needed to be done to be able to fit and stay on them? Sound quality is better than stock tips?

Thanks,
Ken

Yes, they fit.

No, no mods are needed.

Sound quality is unchanged.

Thanks. Is the benefit just comfort or a better seal?

Losing any of the official proprietary tips would be costly to replace.  Complies are much cheaper.

Regarding comfort, this is likely to vary from listener to listener.

The seal is better for me, providing slightly better isolation, but most importantly, they no longer fall out of my ears so easily.

Got it. I'll have to give them a try. My left side always fall out.

 

I love these IEM's. Best I've every owned. I sent back the Shure 846 after trying out the IE800's.

You need to replace complies every week so.. dunno about it being cheaper.

Really ? Why every week ?

Isn*t it recommend due to hygienical reasons? I mean, it's not exactly clean inside one's ears

Sorry but that's just ridiculous. Comply's only need to be replaced when they start breaking down which depends entirely on how much they are used. Bacteria and germs can live just as long on silcon and other materials as they can on foam

post #1947 of 6254

Well you can wash and disinfect silicons. I doubt its possible with complys without them breaking down. I find it rather disgusting =(

post #1948 of 6254

Do you disinfect your silicon tips weekly?  Maybe your ears are just dirtier. If you clean your ears regularly and properly, you are not going to have dirty tips are you?  In any case, there is nowhere that it is recommended to replace Comply's weekly.

Whoever says the IE800 doesn't need an amp (more to the point, that they don't scale due to being easy to drive) needs their ears testing...

Mine have failed at the juncture of the iem to 2.5mm plug cable fitting. First one ear went out (w/no warning or intermittent signal period of deteriorating sound). A few days later the second went out as well. I've tested the 3.5 to 2.5mm Sennheiser supplied cable and it's ok. So it's definitely the cable to 2.5mm plug connection where it looks frayed and loose. Has any one else had this issue? Did a search on Head-Fi and could not find related. Sorry, did not read all 130pages of this blog.
