Anybody else tried NT6?  Do you agree with Mimouille?


I have the NT6 and tried the 846 extensively. The 846 is a great iem, the NT6 has more clarity and is more neutral, if that is what you are looking for.

Have you compared customs to the Comply Professional tips? Based on their sponginess, it's hard for me to understand how anything could isolate better than those.

 

The tips provided by shure don't isolate well though, that's for sure.

Yes, I've used the triple flange, shure olives, comply, and now my custom sleeves.  I also own a pair of CIEMS.  You cant beat a custom for isolation IMO, as long as you have a good fit from the mold.

Just to make sure, did you try the Comply Professional tips? They make a bunch.

 

Also, how far deep do customs go inside of your ears? are they uncomfortable at all due to the tightness necessary to isolate sound well + the relative rigidity (relative to the sponge that is a comply tip)?

post #2720 of 3042

I don't notice any discomfort.  You might notice a bit right away as you get used to wearing them, but afterwards you can wear them for hours comfortably.  I used the light grey comply tips, not sure if they are the professional ones or not.  They go in not quite to the 2nd bend.

Thanks.

I have TG334 and it's very clear and the mids are not as pushy as the Shures.  Sound stage is wider also.

For example?

Those Comply Professional tips do make a big difference indeed ..

post #2725 of 3042
Not sure anymore if it's the tg334 i tried (probably not as I couldn't fit these in due to large / multiple bores). But the voicing sure was dramatically different from shure, not for me. So, to each his own, you should sell the 846 and move on silverears...
Now, the comments on other much better sq for cheaper, it's good to state clearly im(h)o.
post #2726 of 3042

For those that typically use medium tips, what size complies do you use?   I use the largest, how about you guys?

The same with me. Also emailed Sensaphonics and told me it's the only change in the sound due better isolation and that the main reason for get the custom sleeves it's comfort. So no dramatic change in sound.

There are better quality (for way less) IEMs than the aggressively mid forward and clarity challenged "836" (remember the fake IE8?).

 

Or, that was a marketing statement....

Agreed the bass will be optimal due to great(er) seal BUT....

 

The 'sound tube' is now w-a-y longer and has a teensy-tiny inside diameter.....hard to believe that this wouldn't change the SQ knowing how much other IEM's are affected by way more subtle changes like the depth and the inside diameter of their eartip nozzles.

Yes, that could be true since, universals would be tuned for distance from the sound bore to the inside of the ears.  Measurements are taken of universals and shows sound dependency on insertion depth and etc..  But I am curious if these actually work out better than the stock tips as the stock tips are not very good.
