The M+ tips are more mushroom shaped.  They flare out at the bottom, kind of like a mushroom that grows on your lawn, if you water too much in the summer.

Thanks. I was wondering more about their size difference. The medium plus were big for me an hurt my ears after a while. Im using the small sureseals now but usually i use medium sized tips.

Oh sorry didnt see your post first. Thats what I get for reading from the last post first. Thanks!

I tend to find that the sureseal tips are usually bigger than usual. Their small would be like mediums for other tips.

Don't really know why or how.
Except to say I activated the 'pop' eq on P1 and Supertramp's Crime of the Century, Floyd's DSotM and Steely Dan's Gaucho just opened up
and hit everything big and hard with real detail.

Thanks to Jmills for persistent recommendation for this. And apologies to those who contacted me when I thought of selling. I'm not.

Glad that you've found enjoyment out of it.

Just received my Kickers and I've been listening for a day and a half ... And I'm SO disappointed!

 

The sound almost thin, it feels that it has no meat to the bones, which I absolutely can't understand given their heritage. Voices are "just there" as in there's no emotion or anything to them. There is no real layering or depth to the instruments or voices. The bass is just like "doof doof" bass but there is no rumble to male voices and no nice meaty bass guitar presence and sense of body to the music through the Kickers. These are my first proper IEMs but damn, I'm not happy. My current benchmark is Thinksound ON1 which punches well above their weight class.

 

Am I crazy? I can't believe this :(

Have you tried different tips? Recommend Comply t400 if they're same size nozzle as Harmony. And/or proper insertion?

get different tips. Something wrong.

Be sure to tip roll. 90% of people's problem with iems, especially those new to it, are mostly from people who don't get a good seal.

I had a similar first reaction to my Harmony. As the others say, roll tips - wide bore, and at least medium insertion depth seems to be be the way with these things.
Also try burning it in. I know it's a contentious subject but I believe it worked for the Harmony. It was small staged, congested, thin and sharp on first listen. Took less than 50 hours to open up (WIDE), settle the bass and reduce a few peaks. Nothing special, just pink noise through my laptop for a few days.

Same here. Knew instantly that the supplied tips didn't seal well for me.

Think the bass has tightened slightly, but not a major change to me from burn in. I am a believer that dynamic drivers improve with burn in, but not sure about BA's.

Currently listening to Massive Attack's Blue Lines; sounds great. These are a really good compliment to my more neutral Etymotic ER4's.

Thanks to all the replies! I think I'm going to give them a good burn in, it's worked on some other earphones. I'm currently inserting them really deep to get a good seal and only the smallest tips are working for me (med does too but prevents deep insertion).

I live in South Africa so tips are essentially non existent so if I'm going to get some imported, I need a good bet pair.

What type of tips do you suggest? I don't think comply can work since I'll be importing regularly in that instance. Thanks for the advice and since I've been inserting them deep they have improved a lot!

The JVC spiral dots work great for me. If you have any IEM's with tips that work for you, try those. The surefit ones didn't work when I first got my kickers. I just used the ones off of my Vsonics and they now work great. Good luck

General question - I have the ASG1plus and ASG 1.5 to listen to at the moment. Love the balanced sound of the 1plus, and after serious EQ to add the missing treble, I'm starting to enjoy the punch and bass impact/tone of the 1.5. Would the ASG 2.5 or Harmony be a blend of these two sound sigs with all the extra bass and the tweeters, or is it different again? Looking at whether it would be better to put the 1.5 or both up for sale and pick up a 2.5 or Harmony while they are still available for general sale if either of those is the best of both worlds. Any Aurisonics frequent flyers have any suggestions? Basically looking for a 'phone with the bass impact and depth of the 1.5 that you don't have to drag out of the mud with EQ to hear the high notes!
