Finally got some Moldex Spark Plugs as tips. Got rid of the El cheapo plugs I was using. Best sounding tips ever used

Hi everyone,

 

My Yamaha EPH-100 broke, so I decided to buy the RE-400. I will be posting comment about this IEM and hopefully I can contribute a few things! 

post #154 of 296

can someone compare this iem to the rock it sounds r-50. in terms of sound signature and overall clarity. im not sure if i should spend another 20 dollars on he r-50 since joker's review on it is better. thanks

can you tell me the sound signatures of the re-400 and the r-50?

R50 brighter with very good treble and details level.
RE400 are more to the neutral side.

Is anyone aware of good-quality silicone triple-flange eartips that fit the RE-400s?  I have issues with all the stock eartips not fitting very well and thus not providing very good isolation.

I'm currently using the large triple flange tip from my friend's Meelectronic A161 - they fit the RE-400's and are more comfortable than the Ety tri-flange tips (softer).

i bought these for 6 cents including shipping 

 

can't go wrong! they're not as soft as other silcones but the bore (opening is wide) close to the original biflange, so sound should be about the same, then again the silicone is not the made from the same material soo i dunno about that

 

but their 6 cents! their biding but try checking out the rest of this guys store u see a pair of light blue (i wanted those but i bid on these first and won this instead, oh well)

 

these seal pretty well for me (it said medium) but i'm always shifting between small and medium? so maybe in between?

The ones you linked to are almost identical in size/shape to the original ones that come with the RE-400s, and in my post I already said that those aren't suited to my ears.


Specifically looking for this style:

Smaller ones don't fit too well in my ears and tend to wiggle/fall out whenever I'm walking.  I need something that I can insert suitably deeply into my ear canal.

their longer and their more "mushroom like at the tip" so it thicker near the opening, so it seals better imo,

 

but the material to me is iffy (not very comfortable sound coming out is still inferior to the stock biflange

 

it was cheap and i figure it would help others as well cause its so cheap! you'll have to pay more if you want triple flanges

 

maybe try some fake monster triple flanges? i heard the fake sony hybrids are actually really good compare to the real ones. wand they sell huge packs of the fake sony hybrids in the 1 size, while with the real you have to buy the variety pack
