Maybe there are different tolerances on them, I'll try the others later to see if they all fit the same.
I actually found the stock/hybrids to have more bass and while the Heir does tighten the bass it loses the thump and the mids and highs move back a bit. I guess it comes down to the shape of ear canal. The Heirs do not give me a great seal, and due to the stiffness of the material, I cannot force them in for a seal.
This is weird and a bit frustrating. I continue to have a different experience than most with these Tenores. I'm trying my darnedest to experience the level of hype that several have experienced with these but to no avail. I still find the Ostry KC06 better, at many levels; especially after I put the Heir tips on. I could chalk it up to it being an issue of combination between ear canal size and preferred sound signature and call it day, but I find it hard to believe that I am different from so many people.
