After trying a few others the tips below are the ones that worked best, I don't know where they are from but the wider opening combined with a great seal really opened these up. They have great bass extension and impact, clear silky mids, and smooth extended highs now. Before I picked them up what reviews I could find were all over the place from not enough to way too much regarding the bass, so I figured it was fit-dependent and I was right.




I am now quite happy with the Polk UltraFit 3000, and would like to see it go up against the Westone ADVs in a moisture-resistant showdown biggrin.gif

Look like my hippo shroom Eartips

Ah the Flat 4's. They have such a unique appearance. Are they actually comfortable in your ear? XD

Upgraded cable for my SE5 (Beat Audio Oslo II), so new combos. The TP is still the best source for the SE5 but AK120 does well too.

Seeing that you have an E17, it can be used with the S4 as a USB DAC.

There are only a couple of days before the price is doubled, better hurry up to order your own Tera-Player soon:

That should sound sublime with your 1Plus2 and "Uber" cable. I kept wondering why you still didn't get one for yourself after trying so many different portable gears.

Excuse me?!
Mr. Altmann is trolling around. He can't be serious about that.
