Tri flange usually gives me the best result. They go deep and cancels out any issues with different sound due to "optimal" placement in ear.

Hi guys! 


Comply tips, Stars tips, True-Fit, Phonak...and so on! W4 is realy Tips Dependant IEM!!



 

The DIY option:


The SMO (Sony Hybrid mod) work fine for me and other Headfiers here but... have find another similar alternative that shake my head a bit more!  Maybe you'l love it either!



 

I call this Code: PA747A Mod.

 



I dont want to detailed here all the SMO procedures, almost  Headfiers here knows already!



 

Simple, all you need is 2 things.



* The plastic coreTube, from any old, or unused foamy tips, or silicone stem from any other tips will be fine.

 

** And finally, a pair of "SHURE PA749A Soft Flex Sleeves" (for E2 and Quiet Spot)
 (There coming from my old deceded E2c)  

Sony Hybrid sleeve [M] is to small & thin (IMO) It's so why am using now the Shure Mod! 



 

Keep me informed about your A/B opinions,  the sound test you did with!

If someone need some work prodedures picts letmeknow, but, I think it will needless!!



 

Bonne chance!



 

EAGLES - Hotel California live ( Hell Freezes Over album)   AWESOME!

Tips of the triks!
* 

 

Before inserted your final work, coat lightly the noozle with some... your personal favorite grease... from your fronthead, nose or any kind of body grease.
You can either use "Oto-Ease" if your out of sebum!

** Open you mouth  a bit before inserted in your canal will help!

No, I definitely mean Auvio from Radio Shack - this is the way it's spelled on the packaging.
