UE600 tips come with Logitech UE600/600vi. They should be selling at $10 on Logitech website. Amazon sells Sony hybrid tips.

I suppose these are the tips you speak of?

I might also opt for some Comply tips, since I could pick those up today from my local RadioShack.

No, I'm talking about the original ones.

I am not a fan of Comply tips except for some treble happy IEMs. They decrease the treble too much for my liking.

Hmm. I had a good experience with them on my SE846, so I'll pick them up, and give some feedback on them with the IM70 afterwards.

UE900 tips and UE600 tips are different?

can anyone compare these with a BA200? im thinking of getting these and there are no places I can audition a pair, I'm currently wondering if these are an upgrade?downgrade? or side grade? from a TDK BA200?

From memory BA200 has more recessed midrage compared to IM50/70 forward midrange. Bass hits harder and bigger on IM50/70 while it is lean and softer on BA200. I think it will be an ugrade from BA200. They are quite different sounding IEMs.

I find the sound to be a bit muffled and veiled with the stock tips as well. If you're going by RadioShack, see if they have some Auvio hybrid tips. Those are my preferred tips and help open up the treble and cut down on the bass boom. It won't get to the detail level of VSonic treble or anything, but wider bore tips like the Auvio will definitely help with that veil. You could also try removing the filters like Ozkan is fond of, though I leave mine on. These are the Auvios: http://www.radioshack.com/auvio-silicone-replacement-tips-medium/3300784.html#.VHNMxYsZ5UQ

Thanks, Zap. I actually checked with RadioShack and they actually don't carry the Complys I want, but they do have what you suggested.

edit*

I was able to pick them up from Radioshack and they do make a difference. The bass feels just a bit tighter and that veil is more or less gone. Thanks again for the suggestion. My only knocks are on the cheap feel and how badly they attract dust, but it's to be expected from $5 sleeves.

Perhaps we should start a premium silicone tip company! :tongue_smile:

We should! wink.gif I actually prefer foam, but unfortunately I couldn't find any nearby, and I couldn't order anything since I go on vacation tomorrow, but these will do.

I love the fit, isolation and comfort of foam tips too, but having to replace them every few months just makes it unappealing, not to mention the foam tend to get gross faster. Still, my last pair lasted 5 months then on the second wash it started peeling off.

Hey I have a question, are the AUVIO SILICONE REPLACE TIPS (LARGE) the same size or larger than the large stock tips that come with the IM50?

The Auvio may be a little bigger, but they're the same general size.
