I think the seal is OK, because the bass is strong and good. Stock tips are really not that good, I use now the IE8s foam tips, which give a slightly better result. The silicon tips of the IE8s don't fit well.
It seems that I'm not the only one with this problem, although most people are satisfied, there are some comments here about similar opinions of its treble.
I'll wait a few more weeks, and see is further burn in helps, but don't have high hopes. It seems that I can get new replacement driver for my IE8. If its not that expensive, I'll replace the bad left side and use it for a few more years. I think I was just hoping more after the positive reviews, and reading such things, that its similar to the M50. No, it is not, they are sounding completely different.
dont bother doing anything about the im50 or im70, from what you describe they are just not for you listening preference...tips and filter mods are not going to make a great leap from where or what you are hearing now...am using the im70 and they are almost a carbon copy of m50 but better sub bass...if yours is totally off from m50 sound, one of them may be faulty. i sold the m50 as im70 does what it do but better and smaller in size.
i did the filter removal thingy and ended up putting it back.
I think they will be more of a replacement cable rather than "enhacement" cable. If anything, I would wait until they have one with in-line remote :) That's what I got for UE900 from them, to have in-line remote with multi-function button and volume up/down for Galaxy phones.
Btw, I just ordered the silver cable. Will post my impressions once I receive it.
I just bought the IM70s but I found that none of the supplied tips gave a good seal - I think I have big ear holes - so bass was very lacking and isolation was poor. I bought some Comply comfort (the more rounded ones) which are a lot better, but ideally I'd like some even larger. The best tips I've ever used are the largest Shure foams. Does anyone know of anything similar to these that will fit the IM70s?
