very interesting...  could you tell me where you got those "Sony hybrid tips" ?   Do you have a link or a picture ? 

 

thanks

bmichels, Here is the link to Sony Hybrids I have ordered, which are the same as the one's H20Fidelity sent me.

Hi Gintaras, I don't know if it's the game ender lol....We all been around Headfi too long to know that....Something new always round the corner.

But as far as "loudspeaker like" Bingo Spot on....a good analysis for the 1plus2 indeed. Funny thing was that I was thinking along the same lines as that & yes that air moving around like big  loudspeaker is right.....Not Literal Audiowood.......But nice laugh by the way..biggrin.gif

 

Lee I can feel for ya buddy, I had many fit issues with my pair of customs also.... taking months to finally resolve, It is so worth persevering no matter how long it takes, as once we have found the right seal....It goes from Sibilant on the vocals.......to These are big loudspeaker like.

lol I'm over side-grades. Not much of any sides grades to be honest at the caliber of gear we have. More like downgrades ;) And downgrades never get used in my case.

Wait those tips are fake Sony Hybrids though right?

How do they compare to the real tips?

I've used the real Sony hybrid tips on the 1Plus2 and I don't like them at all. Kills the sound staging. Alters all 3 frequencies. I didn't even like them on the MDR-7550 as it made the sound staging unnaturally narrow and wide whereas with the V-moda bass tips it presented the sound staging in a fuller more natural way (didn't alter what was there really). I'm not sure how the fakes compare to the real deal. But if they are pretty much the same then I wouldn't like them. But keep in mind if maguire wasn't able to get a seal on a regular basis before then of course this would be a non-issue until he's tried better tips.

I found they worked well, honestly, it helped the soundstage in my case. (serious) I couldn't warm to the V-moda tips with 1Plus2 although they worked well for me on RDB+ v1 which is a similar shell design. I tried several tips but kept falling back to the hybrid clones I sent Maquire. As I've said they're thicker walls than standard Sony Hybrids so that may effect a difference. They gave me the best seal, fit and sound........

What about the opening of the nozzle? Does it obstruct the opening of the 1Plus2 nozzle? That is what caused the entire issue with altering the sound for the worse in my case. Other than that the stock tips fit me very well and were comfortable.

With something as seemingly meticulously tuned as the 1p2, I assume that they took tip acoustics into account so I just hoped I wouldn't have a problem with stock tips. Luckily, I found stock tips perfectly fine from the first try.

The stock tips wouldn't give me a seal. They seems like small tips to me. evil_smiley.gif

 

Well the Heir tips did work but I ended up reverting back to the large JVC tips. For some reason the Heir worked really well for me for about a week or two. I think my ear canals actually changed during that period lmao.

The red 'Heir' tips are included with the package as well as some other types of tips. Not sure which stock tips you are referring to unless there were plain black ones included as well that I didn't notice?

The Orthofon tips are very small :P. Even the large. Also very expensive from the prices I've seen. Reminds me of complys pricing scheme. tongue.gif
