As kova4a mentioned, Westone Star tips do not work on the N6 (I know, I have the N6, and I bought them to try them on it)…. I have large ear canals, and what worked for me is:

 

- Comply (T500 are perfect, you can also use T400, a little bit more difficult to fit on the nozzle but it's doable - for both, I use L size for both ears)

- Sony Hybrid size LL (absolutely perfect for my right ear)

- Ortofon Large Silicone in L are very very good for my left ear, not so much for my right ear - for quite a long time I made do with a Sony Hybrid LL for my right ear and an Ortofon L in my left ear

- JVC Spiral dots tip in L (replaced my Sony Hybrid LL/Ortofon L setup I mentioned above) 

- I've recently tried the Auvio silicone tips  in L, and I really like them a lot with my N6...

 

Just thought I'd give you some suggestions (based on a LOT of personal experiments;))...

Thanks! Good to know. I've tried Sony Hybrids and Meelectric double flanges with no luck too. I'll check out the ortofon tips though.

Well maybe I'll give the LL Sony Hybrids a try again, but man aren't they a pain to get on :tongue_smile:

 

I've got medium sized canals as far as I know, with a weird bend inside my ear canal. Most of the time I use medium size tips with my other iems, but they seem like XS tips on the N6.

Well, I've tried a LOT of tips including the sony hybrids, all kinds of double and triple flanges and not only did I get a perfect fit with the ortofons but with my N4 they sounded the best. Now, I still haven't received my N6 but given the exact same housing and nozzle I'm sure that the same tips will have the exact same effect on the N6's sound.

Thanks for the heads up I'll see if I can track the ortofon tips down. Any idea where the best place to find them would be?

I get them from Amazon. And use on my N6.

Not sure, I got mine straight from ortofon. I know there are a bunch odf sellers online who adverise their tips as being ortofon ones but you usually receive something completely different.

Hi John, Brannan,

I think this question been asked before or since day one, N6 is the only one in your stable available only in universal- any chance of doing the custom way?

My current amp setup has expanded N6 to another level that I never heard before, especially the vocal region. Needs a better seal.

Cheers jT.

Hey JT, at this point in time the N6 is only available in universal format. I am glad to hear the N6 is continuing to grow with your gear, that is an excellent sign. Cheers! beerchug.gif

I never doubt N6 capability after I got it last year thru' your recomendation. Tried a nos of tips but none seems to hold longer than the blue one supplied.

But I am still wishing N6 being a custom one day.

Cheers!

Any particular reason the n6 is universal only?  Just curious really.
