The only flaw is that there is no easy way to tell left from right in the dark. I hate that.

You should have told me this before I pulled the trigger. Now what will I do in the dark?
Let's get this hype train going, somebody come in here and say, these are the best iems ever dog.. It beats everything in headfi dog..
I think I need to order some new tips for these Tenores, because for the life of me I cannot get these to sound anywhere near the KC06, and some people have *preferred* the Tenores over the Ostriches. I need some help -- what do you guys suggest at a reasonable price?
Here's what I've tried:
Monster Gratitude tips -- the Tenore bore is too short, these won't work.
Sony Hybrid -- produced best result so far, but lacks the sparkle that has been described for mids/highs
Stock tips -- a close second behind Hybrids
Pistons, Narmoo, Deltas -- all have wide bore, won't fit
Heir tips from lunashops -- make the Tenores sound awful
I've owned the Meelec Double flanged, which I used for my Monster Gratitudes before they and the tips were stolen. They were good, but they were a tiny bit too large for my ears.
I find the hybrids best for the sparkle energetic treble out of my little tips colection. They are the most transparent tips that bring the best clarity out of my tenores in all frequencies. The bass is tight and extend very low, very detailed with great texture and the mids are more forward and intimate. It still retain that airy sound with good placements of instruments and nothing get lost or sound congested, still good soundstage.
The double flanges (I have m6's and vsonic's) are best for the soundstage. Huge 3D soundstage, but to my ears everything sound a bit distant, less energetic and not so detailed like my hybrids.
We all have different ears so ymmv. Like I said before few times, even the tenores sound outstanding out of the box they do change with burn in. First 100 hours or so I used stock tips, they sounded best for me. Hybrids made the music sound very weird like the instruments weren't in harmony and timings were wrong, don't know how to explain. At some point in time that thing changed and now I love them on tenores, everything sound perfect for my ears.
I still have mh1, mh650 and heir tips from lunashop on their way, but I dont expect any more miracles, the tenores are a miracle already. For me the best tips will be the child of double flanges and hybrids love, that huge soundstage with best clarity and lil bigger and punchy bass.
