Can anyone with a pair of IM02's tell me the diameter of the nozzle?

All this talk of tips has reminded me how good I got my old CK10s sounding with Klipsch Gels (tamed the shrill 9kHz peak a fair bit). Would love to try'em with the IM02's I've ordered.

All IM series share the same tips.  The front end of the nozzle is 5.7 mm diameter, and the nozzle tube outer diameter is 5.0 mm.

They can use the generic tips that usually fits 4.2 - 5.5 mm nozzle tube outer diameter.

Cool, thanks for the info. Wow, 5.7mm, that's hauuge. I take it Sony Hybrids (my second choice for CK10) fit? Ta

The 5.7 is the nozzle end, the front part where it is always bigger to hold the tips from slipping off the nozzle.

But the nozzle diameter is 5 mm. So 5 mm is the size when you're looking for other tips.

Haven't tried with Sony hybrid.

The bad news: Accessory Jack is 2 weeks back-ordered as of this morning when they responded to my email. I ordered me some IM-70s from them on the 20th of April and as of last night canceled that order :mad: ( IDK who mentioned them but I was also attempting to use other online shops to order my goodies so meh, maybe I'll give them another shot in the future)

 

The good news: I went ahead and ordered them with my Prime account, and to my delight they were on sale for USD $117  as opposed to the $125 I saw back then :cool: I even did next day shipping for less than it would have been to get expidited shipping with AJ. Good ol' amazon being awesome as usual :p

Hi all, I'm quite new in the the audio world and I just wanted to make sure this is correct. If i were to use my Sony Xperia Z1, which is my only source for portable use, the Im02 would be a poor choice to pair with it correct? Also, I know the review said that the Galaxy S2 sounded best with the Im50 and Im70 so if Im02 is not powered great by the Sony Xperia Z1 would the Im70 be the next best choice? I don't know if this would help but I mainly listen to punk rock, indie rock, and pop. Thanks.

Either will be fine with your Z1, they are not hard to drive. Given that you are new to IEMs and your music tastes, IM70/50 will be better suited and will save you some money. Please do note you may need to buy other tips such as "sony hybirds" for decent comfort, these are huge and not for small ears.
