Did anyone else find the nozzles on these to be uncomfortably wide?

Yes! The only tips that I'm comfortable with are the grey stock tips. Everything else I've tried was either too uncomfortable/tight or unable to attain proper seal.

It's one of the things my old Shures were very much better at - comfort ......

Super comfortable for me using my setup 😎

I'm using the Red/Blue comply tips personally, having a long history of issues with IEM tip comfort, and comply is the closest I've found to not being in pain using IEMs.  I enjoy the sound quite a bit, although I wish the bass was slightly more pronounced, but nothing I can't handle.  I'm also finding these IEMs handle classical better than I would have expected.  I think they make for a decent all-arounder.

Sorry for the DP.

I'm in Canada I couldn't find the auvios anywhere local. Those and the monster.. Are they narrow bore or wide bore? Does it add to the sibilance? The stock clear narrow bores make the sibilance so bad for me.

Thought I'd try the Auvios for the fun of it.  Got a Radio Shack a mile away and $5 is certainly affordable.  Like them so far.  Good fit, good isolation, sound is clear, a bit more bass than with my Complys using the thinnest spacer.  Using them with no spacer at all.  Might be a bit brighter than the Complys as well.  So far I've only listened to them while sitting, usually I listen while walking, tomorrow I should have a better sense of them.

 

I also found that Radio Shack has Comply's as well, which is a + as I've been buying them from the company via the mail.  All in all a good morning's errand.  :dt880smile:

How long do you think these foam tips can last?

post #1332 of 1576

Depends on how you use them.  I walk with mine, so heat and sweat enter into it.  But my Complys last 4-6 months, typically, before beginning to shred a bit.

Some Sunday entertainment.

The Auvios are wide-bore.  The Monsters are narrow.  I didn't experience sibilance with the Monsters, but others have reported it from narrow-bore tips.  My experience has been that tips of most any description can be sibilant when inserted very deeply -- I heard it worst with the supplied double-flange tips (except the giant ones).  YMMV.  

 

Radio Shack offers them online, and I presume they'll ship to Canada.  http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=19103306&utm_source=GooglePLA&utm_medium=pla&utm_term=3300785&gclid=CJDlvvbplL4CFUne7AodBgcAAA&gclsrc=ds  

Amazon has a multi-size variety pack.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B007Z7YEVC/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new

With the Dunus, I found I needed the biggest tips to get a reasonably shallow insertion, while I usually use medium tips for a deep insertion.

Anyone try any of the new dn-2000 tips on the dn-1000? Anything that works better than the grey silicones?
