Comply TS500 - Softer sound, comply-ish bass texture, bass lines really stand out. Upper mids are softer and more relaxed. Treble is a bit more subdued.

 

Hi MoonYeol, do any of these tips fit on the FA-4s without having to really force them on?

Only the sensorcoms are a bit hard to fit. The other ones are relatively easy. Hybrids are just a bit hard to fit but meelec balanced and comply ts500 fit easily.

This is now ridiculous, I have to buy another headphone in order to use it's tips. I will pass.

Where is the best and cheapest place to purchase the Sensorcom Bi flange/Meelec balanced tips?

Meelec balanced directly from their website and sensorcom should be similar. Google and try! smily_headphones1.gif MH1C should be quite cheap and well worth having wink.gif

You shouldn't have to buy the earphone just to get the tips :p

 

On another note I think I'm done with these and also most of my iem's. It really makes no sense to have so many iem's when I use my JH13 most of the time.

Agree

I have just emailed both Sensorcom for details on whom can sell product to me in Australia and also to Meelec to provide exact page direction as to tip size. They provide no info on this on their 'balanced' variant.

There's only one size to their balanced tips afaik

Regular, generic biflanges. Have you tried any other meelec biflange? They're closer to Head Direct small biflanges than the big ones.

Well to be fair the head direct large biflanges are for elephant ears.

No, I have not. In fact I have never tried any bi flanges of any sort.  Just received a response from those brilliant people over at MEElectronics.

 

 

"Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting MEElectronics. The eartips you are referring to are only available in one size – the same size that comes with the M9/M9P earphones.

 

Thanks and please let me know if you have any additional questions.

 

Sincerely,

MEElectronics Customer Service"

 

Wow, now if only I had the M9/M9p hanging around I could compare and see. Great help.

First off, this is my 1000th post so you get to be the lucky one. Roll out the red carpet and open up a bottle. :L3000:    :beerchug:

Once you reach 1000 posts you are not allowed to disagree with me and must bow your head when posting. (I'm sure I read that somewhere in the rules section).

 

 

Sensorcom has yet to respond to my email. Apparently considering the tough economy around the world you would think that people would make it easier to purchase stuff.

If the Meelec Bi Flange are as big as the included large Complys then good I will order otherwise I'm wasting my time. Someone can measure the base of the tip for me in cm.

So far I'm getting the best sound out of the included Comply tips although this isn't saying much. I'm not getting good strong bass and the soundstage is somewhat wide but lacks depth.

The treble lacks vitality and sounds smeared. I have been hunting around for the Sensorcoms although nothing doing.

Sensorcoms are slightly smaller than the meelec balanced I think. But the meelec balanced lack the bass that the sensorcoms provide.
