Same issue here, I've tried a bunch of things but with no real luck.

I find that foam helps the fit, though I'm not quite happy with the effects on the sound.

Which are the ones that give fit issues? The balanced armature or dynamic ones?

They all have the same housing, with minor deviations for the 3- and 4-driver ones.

I'm using hybrids too. Don't like the foams as well. Normally hybrids work well but not in this case haha.

From my observation, if I were to wear my IM50 for long hours, my ears will be a little sore.

Oh okay. Thanks. That's a little worrying. Planning to get one for a friend.

Actually i use them for long hours (i use them as my monitors at work), and had no issues with sore ears. The only "big" problem i have with the housing is that the Left one keeps sliding out of my ear, affecting the bass at some points. But it might be fixable using Complys or other tips (Hybrids do the same to me, Olives work to some extent...).

Same here! But I'm experiencing it on the right ear. But complys tend to muffle up the sound, make it warmer and tame the bass response IMO. A bigger size hybrid or the hubris which is stuffed with foam may help.

I tried with the VSonic tips with foam, didn't worked that well for me, at least. They work great with my GR04, but the IM70 lost a lot of highs, and the bass got too tamed for my taste. So far, the only sound i like is with the stock tips. The weird thing is that with my IM50's, the slide doesn't happen... Might switch the tips, or even switch headphones...

Interesting. But I thought both IM50 and IM70 houses the same design? Though not a very ergonomic design in my view but I do like the cable a lot! Any comments on which model you prefer? smily_headphones1.gif

Right now, i like the IM70 way better than the IM50, merely because i found that the 70's sound a lot more cleaner than the 50's. I like the bass better on the 70's too. It sounds just perfect with my DX50 and straight to my Laptop.

I like the 70 over the 50 as well. Except the poor choice in colour. The sound is tighter over-all especially the bass. More held together and controlled. For the price, the 70 is a really good deal. Better than most of the more expensive Shures.

 

The IM03 is something special as well. Very nice sounding iem. Sad about the housing though.

I'm quite impressed with im50s. Didn't have high expectations but did very well at its price point. Spacious sound with good separation and coherence. Vocal sounds warm and sweet. Only gripe is the fit...
