Hmm, well, I can't stand the red foam tips that came with the H-200's. That muffle to me, is WAY too much, so consider me anal in that case:)

Iinm, the red foam tips that come with the H-200s are rather smooth in comparison to the TSX series. I have a few pairs and they have a rather holey appearance as a rule.

When you say "smooth" do you mean muffled? O.o

No, I mean the appreance of the tips themselves. The reds are smoother than the TSX tips.

ohh, I'm okay with it being smooth or not, I hear they provide great comfort anyways, the TSX.

 

I'm much more concerned about the muffling, as the only tips I didn't find too much muffle with were the TF-10 stock comply tips, and the Rhapsodio foam tips (I don't know if these are in production anymore).

MyH-200 are up for sale if anyone's interested. I still prefer my customs, and have just bought a Nikon D3200 so I need the funds.

They are great IEM's and punch above their price. Full review will be posted soon .

Well, there's the thing. Porous/uneven surfaces tend to absorb soundwaves more than flat surfaces, so while material made also plays a part, in theory, the TSX would absorb more sound than those reds.

Yeah, I realised the TSX have larger holes throughout its body, as opposed to the H-200 ones. 

 

That last line you said, I'm not too sure what it means, but I'm going to assume the more absorbent the foam, the less or more muffle?

In a few words: the more porous the foam, the more muffled the sound.

Basically, what I meant was the TSX would "absorb" more soundwaves (more than the red foam tips anyway), resulting in less of them reaching your ears.

Experimenting is part of the fun. wink.gif Complys are usually very comfy, but they tend to alter the sound a little. I'd suggest looking into Sony Hybrids, with the padded foams, unlike complys, these foams sit under the tips, making slightly rigid/buoyant allowing for a better fit, and away from nasty sound absorption. tongue.gif

It would be funbiggrin.gif...if they weren't so expensive.

 

Haha, I see an understatement! (BOLDED)

 

I've tried Hybrids, foam under tips, and all sorts of tips. Just wanted to explore into the foam world a bit more, which I think is probably fairly regrettable. Oh wells!

Then there are the black foams too.

post #1965 of 2592

Okay, so I received those TSX-400 tips today.

 

Summary: Very comfortable and easy to use. The muffle-effect wasn't actually any where near as muffled as the H-200's red foam tips were, and overall, am okay with the purchase:) 
Didn't apply any filter mods or anything. They obviously sound warm, as most foam tips will do to the sound, but for a foam tip, they aren't as bad as I had thought it out to be.
