Try out a wider bore tip. It will open up the upper frequencies for a better more even sound. I was using hybrids as well but since have been using UE tips.. Try some tip rolling.

From my experience with tips, wide bores help in this regard.  The highs sound very distorted when the bore is narrow.  I prefer wider bore relative to driver bore size.

Ordered a remote cable for IM03. Lets see how the SQ is.

I have the remote cable and noticed no difference with the stock cable. It doesn't work on the ZX1 though, does on the iphone.

In my case, a wider bore tip tends to flesh out the highs more, which increases the sibilance... :/

 

The ck10s suffered this problem, and the im-02s even moreso.

 

However,

Tip rolling is a good idea.

I agree. I couldnt use the bigger bore because I'm sensitive to peaky treble. Increased treble extension = increased brightness and sibilance. With sony hybrid, the treble is peaky enough and that's with low volume. But better, isolation and comfort are best with Sony hybrids, so I got all I need. Thanks for the recommendation though

I wonder if anyone has used sony mh650 tips on these. They are far better than hybrids at comfort and sound. Even better than UE tips. Please give them a try you won't regret it. wink.gif

Good to hear. I hope they work with GS3 and GS5.

I would like to give it a try ;)

still in the middle of burning it in but highly recommending replacement AT-HDC5/1.2 cable. taking whole thing to next level. more detail, more resolution, bass tighter highs have more texture...

Comfort issues? Who said that? Not anymore after this mod. I cut the stem of etymotic hf5 mushroom tips and put onto the nozzle. Now the chasis don't touch my outer ear so there is no discomfort anymore and the sound became more open and clear. The other tips stems can also work on these. You must try this mode. smily_headphones1.gif The best part of this mod is now I can use every kind of tips with ease.
