Replacement eartips suggestions (3flange?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I want to find a nice assortment of eartips to try for my Sony XBA-3IP's. I don't like the tips it came with, they keep coming out of my ear canal. Anyone have any suggestions? I seem to remember years ago my Etymotic 3flange tips were really secure. Although I think I remember them being kind of a pita to get a seal at first.

 

Open to all suggestions!

I don’t think ety tips fit on Sony IEMs because of they were designed for smaller nozzles, but you can try. There are lots of tips available from eBay. I bought triple flanges for my EX1000s, but in the end, I returned to my Sony Hybrid tips as the bass got muddied up a bit. You can also try other tips, like Comply, fake Sony Hybrids, Monster’s (massive) fit kit, decored Shure Olives, UE silicon tips, Hifiman tips… Also, don’t forget to try sizes that are larger and smaller than what you would normally think would fit. I was surprised when my RE-Zero afforded me the most comfortable fit with the smallest tips. Hope this helped!

If not, you might have to try some custom IEM sleeves, sold by companies like ACS or Sensaphonics, but these are fairly costly. Otherwise, you might want to try some new IEMs!

Try the meelectronics Triple Flanges, they are my selection tips for all of my IEMs. Great isolation with the best bass response!
