Will This Be Called The Westone "Epic" Tip? - Page 14

post #196 of 207
The only way to know is to try. I've said what I can about the matter, some other people with more IEMs as well as the patience to get the star tips on will need to try it and comment.

Hello, I'm not sure if this is an appropriate question in the forums, so kindly forgive me in advance if this is not the case.

 

I've found a vendor online who sells the Westone True-Fit tips in bulk, 200 for $119.98. I don't want to post a link in case this is not permitted. They seem to be a real A/V shop, not some fly-by-night operation selling knock-offs.

 

Is it OK to post a link? Any thoughts on whether these tips are actually available in bulk?

That sounds hokey to me.  It's never been the type of product sold by the hundreds.   Call or email Westone customer service and ask.

Well the vendor replied and confirmed it is the actual Westone tips. They seem to be a real A/V shop out of California.

Just asking Westone to release a new line of IEM with a larger bore,nozzle, and then, Westone will release either a Startips that will fit there monitor nozzlez.

Asking a third party cie is the best, easy way to get what you (we) need for the W4, the so smaller bore nozzle :-/

I was expecting to the like the blue tips very much as they insert deeper into the ear which works very well with the triple flanges, but so far they seem to alter a sound signature a bit too much for my liking, will see whether that changes with time.

Brain, will adapt!

Has anyone tried Star Tips or more preferable True Fit Tips with Audeo? I'm curious to know what changes in sound occur in comparison to silicone tips or olives.

I've just received the Westone Star Tips and must say that I am impressed so far.

I was a Comply foam user, but now I am converted.

Hi! do you guys think that the star tips can fit my astrotex ax35 with a nozzle size of 5mm? and whats the difference between the red and startips? Is the longer eartips better?

post #206 of 207

I have Westone W1 in-ears.  Single BA driver.  I've been using Comply tips, but always thought of them as rounding off the highs a bit.  I recently picked up some Westone True-Fit - the big boys - orange.  Man, they sound great - I have not heard so much clean punch in these single driver phones!   Very musical top to bottom.  I didn't know that W1s were that good until they broke in, and now with these tips they sound amazing IMO. 

 

However, even though I have big ear canals, the orange was just too big over a long listening session - the ache started to settle in, but what a great seal!  Clean tight bass with clear mids and highs.

 

I've now ordered the red, a size down, and I am betting they will be perfect.

 

I haven't ever used the Shure olives, but these True-Fit foamys sound fantastic.

The post is a little puzzling.  The Westone FOAM True Fit tips shouldn't really sound any different from the Shure complys.  They are both same foam material and will fill your ear cavity to the same size.

 

If you ae looking for crispier treble you should be looking at the Westone patented silicone "Star" tips.  Upon their release they instantly made many IEM's sound instantly better.
