So they fit me different. Plus, the ER4Ps have a long, thin narrow shaft on the end. So I get a different insertion depth than with some other headphones. Don't know if that would help you or not.

 

Ah, they are different. Shame they wouldn't fit on the Hifimans, the opening is far too small.

What would the angle change, and how would that potentially help with my problem?

I'm just assuming that an angled or a thinner IEM housing might help you with the fit better since it will be inserted into your ear at an angle. I tend to get a better fit with E212...hence better sound. A 90 degree angle is almost same as having a straight housing. Best if you can test this out.

I just tried actually fitting them not as far into my ears and didn't try to get them to go "around the corner" in my ear canal (and angled the tips more forward, which is the opposite direction of the corner) and I think they may be getting a decent amount better, much closer to the sound of the Senns. There's still some muddiness, but it's much closer than it was before, I think.
