*cable comparison. Roxanne cables on the left, regular 2-pin on the right.









Nice to see that they are including multiple tip types. Mine from ALO came with only one pair of installed tips. An email to ALO went unanswered. I will check with JHA to see if I can get the complete set of tips.

What size is that nozzle? What other type tips fit?

No such thing as a normal tip anymore.  Looks like the Shure/Westone type tips?

The Shure ones the stem is too narrow to fit over the much thicker nozzle of the Roxannes. I ordered a sampler pack of Monster tips from Amazon and they fit. The ones for Hifiman IEMs fit but the stem is actually a bit too large making it likely the tips will remain in your ears when you pull out the IEMs

Nope they are a lot wider. They should be 400 in comply size. Shure/Westone would be 100.

Didn't really like any of the tips. So I'll be trying monster and a couple others when they get to me.

Can you share what other tips you will be getting. I did not like the Monster tips (did not give a good seal with these IEMs) so I am still looking for some tips.

I am a fan of foam tips but the comply one's that came with the Roxannes are just ok to me. I believe they are the T-400. I will be trying the TX-400 and see how those are different. I will be trying Monster foam as well as gel. A few others are Bluecell foam tips, Veritas foam tips, and Squish Fit foam. Wish they had the Westone true-fit foam tips or Shure olives in this size. I like the sound of some silicone best but can not compare to isolation on foams and isolation is top priority for me so that's why I stick with foam. If I were to use silicone I use the one's I got with the T-Peos hybrids. My favorite silicone tips so far. They're similar if not the same as the one's that come with Sony hybrids or Heir Audio IEMs.

Interesting.  The nozzle must look a lot thinner because of the size of the shell.

How about Spinfit tips.

The one pair that came with my Roxannes was silicone not comply foam. For me the bass was boomy and impacted the mids even at the lowest setting of cable bass dials. I am getting much better control in the bass with the gel Monsters but I am getting some sibilance so I am still looking. Ordered some Sony IEM replacement tips.

ALO only replied 1 mail that I sent them. The other 5 went unanswered.

 

They were also sent months apart from each other.

 

Customer support sucks......

Don't know if this will help, but I've used a lot of Comply's, and with some iems I found that going a size smaller than you would normally get and getting deeper insertion helps with bass control while maintaining clarity in the upper end.  My 2 cents!

Hmm...I'll try that but I doubt it will be big enough to isolate as much as the larger size. Insertion only goes so far...
