The only annoying thing is getting a good seal. Was a piece of cake with the VSD3 but I am still trying but to no avail with the Pro 1. I hope I can find a decent sealing tip for it soon.

 

I had the same problem. In case you didn't see the post, the tips shown below are working very well for me:

If you can find any similar ones lying around, give them a try if you haven't already done so.

Hey that actually helped me a lot because that looks exactly like the non hybrid wide bore silicon tips that I have and it worked! Better seal than before. Also realized that this IEM is very sensitive to insertion depth. When I inserted the tip deeply, the sound was a little jumbled and muddy. I was a bit disappointed and began pulling out the tip (that's what she said lol) and the sound suddenly really cleaned up and I started hearing the sound outside of my head.

 

I was like:

 

 

Wow! I got a glimpse of its potential. Its so sensitive to depth of insertion so I am trying to find the sweetspot. I have a feeling its going to take a while lol. Dang it I want the magic now! :P

 

 

EDIT: Didn't mean to imply the overall SQ is muddly and jumbled, I just meant that's what I heard shoving the tip in too deep for a bit. Mistake on my part.

This thread could go downhill quickly lol!

 

Interesting though. With those tips that I showed, they are relatively short tips, and I am basically pushing them as far in as possible to get as good a seal as possible and a more fuller sound with more bass, but I am still getting what I consider to be a clean sound with great soundstage. Or maybe the sound is a bit jumbled and muddy and that's just my preference! Who knows. The tips I'm using though are fairly soft/flexible, I'm not sure if the ones you tried are.

Nah my bad, what I meant was I was inserting too deeply and that messed up the sound. I kept losing seal by smooshing it in too deep if that makes any sense. They are not jumbled and muddy at all. it was only that way when I was messing up. Apologies again.

 

Why downhill quickly? :P

Because I had a bunch of responses to "I was a bit disappointed and began pulling out the tip (that's what she said lol)", all of which would have dragged things downhill rather quickly lol

been surfing on aliexpress and came across two interesting iems:

 

 

1st one it probably the cheapest iem with detachable cables - ipipoo DC2:

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/In-Ear-Headphones-with-MIC-Hands-Free-Headset-Earphone-Super-BASS-Hifi-MP3-Games-MUSIC-Earbuds/2030379387.html

 

 

they look quite nice, come in three colors and for 9$ shipped with epacket, what could go wrong? :D there's also other stuff from the same company, namely DC1 and DC3 (also with detachable cables) and some more:

 

http://ipipoo.com/index.php/list-31.html (holy ****, they even got an English page )

 

 

 

Second is the more elegant looking and also more expensive Vention T01 earphones:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Vention-100-Original-Electronic-2014-New-In-Ear-Headphone-Noise-Isolating-3-5mm-Earphone-with-Mic/536610_1894748203.html

 

 

 

 


looks like a really good packaging and accessories for 25$.

 

seems like a reputable company which also makes other audio related stuff, mainly cables:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/Audio-Cable/536610_254437232.html

 

 

 

 

what do you guys think? I think they are worth investigating :) who's gonna dive in first? :D

One more impression. The X1 synergizes so well with the E11k, I was going to "upgrade" to a NK1 or C5, but the X1 sounds so gorgeous with the E11k, there's no need at this point. My Doppio and B3 have the most exquisite lush sound and depth. Love this!

C5 would be a step up, but the fitment of X1 and E11k is just a match made in heaven.  Just wait a little bit, FiiO should release a stack up kit for X1/E11k, similar to X5/E12 kit.

Those look really sexy! I'd go for the first one if I didn't already have 4 pairs of IEMs on the way smily_headphones1.gif

By the way, this is my first post. I registered because of this thread, I also ordered 2 KZs because of it, I can't wait to get them. Hi, everybody!

Some measure of redemption for the T1e. When listening to the X1 with the E11k, the grittiness and grain is smoothed out, and the bass is more present and less distorted. More rounded. So far it's been fun experimenting with different combinations to see how each IEM is affected. smily_headphones1.gif
