For 80, I found double flange tips only give more bass. :( I use the single one. It seems the best for me.

double flange give also micro detail and much better soundstager, with much better separation...........

 

at least for my ears...

 

 

i would also really recommend half tape mod.

i never used double flange without the half tape mod, double falnge, as you said only added some bass.

 

without the half tape mod i only used single smalles flange... it sounded meh compared to other options...

 

double flange and half tape is a heaven for these iems. i made a special thread explaining how to do the mod.

I don't know if this has already been established somewhere in the forum but the tuning functionality for the IE80 only bumps up sub-bass and mid-bass. I love my IE80's when they are playing through my Fiio E10K on my computer but when playing on-the-go with my phone, I get too much sibilance for enjoyment. I bought these brand new and so far, I have maybe 14-18 hours on them, did anyone with brand new IE80's once have a sibilance problem? At least at first?

try fiio e12a if you have the chance. it will change your life. and i rarely go this far with affirmations.
