The best you say? Ok, i will have to give them another chance then.

I though so.:(

Using pliers sounds a little risky. I would be a bit scared of scrathing my IEMs.

Yeah well, despite that i got a great seal with the biggest of the red ones, they are not very comfy to say the least. I think they might be just a tiny bit too big for my ears, but the medium ones does not provide me with a good enough seal. :(

Regardless you can do it without having to stretch anything.

I think that was pretty much what i ended up doing. Maybe i just wasn't patient enough (probably not). I will have to give it another try soon.

Well. Almost everything... :D

If i should ever choose to go down the road of customs, that would definitely have to be a part of the design. It is very unlikely to happen though, unless someone donated around $1599. Then i would have to go for the K10s! In fact, make that $1899. Wizard design all the way! :cool:

Yeah, that, JackDiesel described it much better than I did.

No no, DON'T use the pliers near the IEMs :smile:… What I meant is, you may try to stretch the blue canal, on the part that will fit the IEM's nozzle, BEFORE doing the other things I suggested (reversing, then squeeze and do the other things JackDiesel suggested)… stretching it gently, about 10%-20% (you should NOT go to 50-100% - like making the blue canal twice as large), does help, making the blue part a bit more supple and somewhat easier to get over the other side and grab the other lip.

Due to the fact it is a tight fit, I know with confidence they will stay on the IEMs even under some what hostile conditions.

^^^ see that too, if it helps making things clearer

Ah, my bad. Right, i think i got it. :smile:

You put the eartip nozzle over the pointy end of the pliers and gently open the handles to stretch the eartip a bit so it fits over the IEM nozzle. No pliers used on or near the IEM, just the silicon eartip BEFORE installing it on nozzle by hand (only).

If you live in Las Vegas or are traveling there this week, we encourage you to stop by the Flamingo Hotel (section Red Rock VII) to demo Fong Audio's Out Of Your Head software with the full range of Noble IEMs/CIEMs. There will also be a prototype, top secret, Russian :cool: electrostatic DAC/AMP available for demo as well as lots of other head-fi gear.

 

Compensatory CIEM photos for reading the above:

post #1182 of 23909

It pleases me to hear that...

 

 

 

and whilst we're on the topic...  has there been any change in the overall perceived level of 'warmth' of the K10 sound signature, to your ears?

With marijuana being legal now in Colorado, how long till we see face plates with marijuana in them. Will those IEM's also have amazing HIGHS?

The material is made of "unobtainium." I found it in a cave behind a waterfall deep in the heart of the Mountains of Wu Jr Shan. I had to WIng Suit in to the heart of the jungle to avoid radar detection....  naturally I feared for my life, but the result was well worth it. :wink_face:

 

 

 

Im glad to hear u like your K10's, in fact we are all in a state of glee.
