Oh, and by the way, those Phillips IEM's actually do sound quite amazing considering how cheap they are.  They have a huge amount of bass.

I have very small earcanals as well (always end up with size small or even extra small tips) and the CKN70's with the small tips from the 3590's gives me a very comfortable and tight fit. Hopefully it will work for you as well.

Same here, one with small narrow ear canal. Just bought some small size foam tips off eBay and I mean small.

I had a problem with the fit on the 500's too. The 70's fit me much better, no issues at all. I think you'll love them.

I hate the cord, but the SQ of the 70's makes up for it.

Maybe that too ha

Trouble is I would prefer dual drivers as I feel the bass would be better as it has a seperate driver for that so other driver can do mids and highs pretty well.

Could be that no dual IEMs under £80 fits that bill.

UE TF10 grey single flange.

If anyone feels that the highs sounds a little metallic and the vocals a little edgy, give this tip a try. I find this tip works very well for me to improved on the highs and mids without affecting the overall sound signature. It still maintains it's airiness and seems to have a better defined and focused soundstage. The bass end have also tighten up a bit with a little more weight and body and in no way boomy.

This is my personal experience with this tip on the CKN70 running straight out from a Clip Zip and as always, YMMV. Hopefully, it could be an alternative for those who are still searching for their ideal tips.
