That was exactly my thinking as well.  Now, I'm waiting to receive Bidenuo G800 (http://dx.com/p/bidenuo-g800-in-ear-earphone-for-smart-cell-phone-black-silver-3-5mm-126cm-cable-254398#.Uyc0t4VMe3g) and thinking their hybrid tips should be compatible with wide-bore tips of Pistons.

A lot more bass than GR07 MK2 and less harsh treble.

Mk2 is excellent but these are not far apart 😎

The fostex te-05 are better then both but for the price the pistons mk2.1 are excellent as well 😊

Sony Hybrid has a narrower stem/bore. I've tried before but the stem is a bit hard and I gave up after a few attempts.
Good luck though

I received my sony just now, and yeah it a bit hard to fits in, but i did it!
and it fits way better than stock tips..

but still...... fit bit odd
i never have problems with fitting before, with others IEM like Shure Phonak Hippo etc

weird



few pages back i think i saw someone said he(or she) bought TF10 tips, i wonder how it feels like
post #758 of 2570
I'm also having some problems getting a perfect fit with them. I've got small ear canals and typically use xs or s tips. The wide nozzle on the Piston's is probably the reason for my fit problems. The best fit for me is with the TF10 tips but I'm still not 100% comfortable with them, feels as if they should fall out any time.

Apparently, a lot of people here have problem with the Xiaomi's fit and I have purchased one from Amazon.com.From the outer look, the fit doesn't look as bad as the XBA-3/30 but the nozzle look too short for my taste. It reminds me of the AKG Q350 that required largest stock tip to fit in my ears ( and get the most of its sound) although I have small ear canal; hence, I get shallow fit.

The issue had with the Sony Hybrids is similar to what others have experienced.  The bore itself has a thickness to it so it doesn't flex as easily as a thinner material would.  Further, if you do manage to get it on, now the bore is so thick and stretched because of the thick nozzle, now it's even harder to get a good seal and if you do, it might hurt a bit.  Compounding that is a fairly short nozzle and because the housing is metal and not smooth (by design), then if you had to press them in far they're scratching your ear.

 

What I used was a very thin tip that I got from the Monster Gratitude set.  They have very thin silicon and thus flex rather easily around the wide nozzle. 

 

I'm wondering about UE tips now but they're hard to get in Canada.

YES! Received my Pistons today and now I am sitting here, truely amazed. I am by far no expert/ audiophile (imo my deceased CX300 sounded good).

First impression with the medium stock tips: crystal clear sound, bass was there but not really present due to the suboptimal sealing.

Fortunately, I kept the spare tips from my CX300. The smallest ones with their wide bore gave me the perfect fit. I have to add that wearing the pistons over

the ear gives me a much better seal than wearing them downside. Bass now is strong and punchy without "darkening" the whole sound like the CX300 did.   

I like to thank you all contributing to this thread.

The best fit tips are from the fx850 😢
post #763 of 2570

I'm currently using Meelectronics double flange tips on them.

Finally got mine from Ibuygou. They're the best headphones I've had (which is not saying much). I do have the worst luck though, they only work properly on my Xperia X8 if I'm either pressing the microphone button or if I take them a few milimeters from the jack (really, it needs to be on a spot on position to work).

 

Anyone knows if there's any kind of jack adapter?

Yes, there is.

 

Search for a CTIA adapter like this one:
