I've been browsing this forum for a few months on and off, and thought it was about time I registered and said "Hi" and "Thank you" for the masses of excellent stuff that I've read over the past weeks.
I didn't really know what section to make my first post in, but as I have a question about custom tips I thought it best to start in here.
Thanks to this site, I now have the following kit :
- Sansa Clip+ (Rockboxed, of course)
- Etymotic HF-5
- Fiio E11
This set-up gives me exactly what I am looking for in my music - clarity & clinical accuracy - but I have found that I can't wear the Ety's for more than 30 minutes without them becoming uncomfortable. I appear to have very small ear canals (ironically, I have inherited my late Grandfather's enormous pinnas to go with them!) and I've found that the small smoky triple flange tips give me the best fit, just not for long.
I think I am going to get a set of custom ACS tips made to go with the HF-5s, but if I later upgrade my IEMs to a set of ER-4s, will the custom tips fit ? The Etymotic tips appear to be inter-changeable between these two models, but are custom tips ?
Cheers in advance...
