I should have some standard UE tips around as well I'll try to find them before the Narmoo's arrive. Recently got a bag of TF10 tips as well so will try both.

The UE tips focuses the sound giving better definition and greater depth to the sounds.. You guys can see the difference in the size of the sound hole of both tips and the UE tips are physically longer on the nozzle channeling the sound to be more focused. Some iems don't benefit from these two factors but these definitely do.
I would try the stock tips to see how you guys like the sound first..Then give some other tips a go. Might surprise you.
I think it was mentioned in this thread that the nozzles are very thick. Can one of you guys measure the diameter and let me know? I thought Xiaomi Pistons had pretty thick nozzles but these pics make them look monstrous!
I just want to make sure I have tips that will fit them (I know ds has said the stocks are pretty good after all, but I still want to be prepared).
Narmoo R1M is in the house!
I like the concept of bass tuning with interchangeable buttons/ports; makes this IEM a versatile option for on-the-go listening. The buttons are easy to screw on/off. Just have to be careful not to lose the rubber o-rings as they are very important for sealing.
Out of the box impressions: These are a direct upgrade to the JVC FX3X so for those who love their bass, wide soundstage, and v-shape sound signature... this is your bargain option. For $26 it is of good value. Just a bit loose and slow on the bass end and a bit strident treble depending on the song but a bit more refined compared to the FX3X. The JVC's can really be hot at times but these seem to be a little bit more controlled. I haven't burned-in this yet so my impressions may still change for the better. Using the silver buttons substantially lessens the bass quantity and also tightens up the low end a bit. Good job Narmoo!
I just got mine, be honest, withouth trying out the units, I love the case immediately, with this price, i bet at least half of them went into the case, the surface is smooth and soft touching, when you hold the case, the feeling is so good! both inner sides have mesh bags, big enough to hold my iphone on one side and couple pairs of my favorite IEMs on the other side.
These are definately an upgrade version of xeport 5010, Meelecs or Hippo VB, the tunning buttons are bigger which make it so easy to switch, I had issues by doing the same on other brands.
The mic is nice to me since most of the time I"m using my iphone.
About the sounds, I like the silver ones better since black ones are too bassy to me. Overall they sounds great, will allow some time to burn-in and will try different tips to see if there is any difference.
Bottomline, this is a steal now by considering the case, the mic and the clipper (this is very useful when I run) (If those are useful to you), then the headsets themselves are only worth around $10 to $15, I think this is the best deal I've seen so far.
one more thing, i was going to throw away stuff after unboxing it, then I realized there isn't anything to throw away other than the shipping box and the paper cover. Not sure if they did it on purpose, but I will give them another plus for that to make it eco-friendly!
Job well done, narmoo! (BTW, anyone knows what narmoo means? the name sounds a bit wierd)
Burn in using the brown noise or do you use something like bass drive?
Sorry I haven't been able to provide a pic of the nozzle. My RIMs are being borrowed at the moment. I use a 4 hour long drum and bass compilation on a loop. Fairly loud volumes. 70/100 somewhere abouts.. Works every single time for every phone I own.
Thanks for replying. Based on the tracking I think they'll try to deliver them either today or tomorrow, which means I'll be able to pick them up either tomorrow or the day after. Then I'll just proceed to burn in while I try to figure out if I have any tips that will fit (or maybe just stick with the stock).
I've always wondered what is better between cycling pink/brown noise vs doing a bass/drum type of burn-in. I feel like if a set is already bass heavy then I do the pink/brown, and if it's a more clean neutral signature then I use the bass/drum.
