oh man..."hated?"  Hurtin' my feels here, but then again i haven't heard either of them yet.  Still on order.

Sorry man.  They just weren't for me.  Plus I think I paid 399 for them or whatever retail was when they first came out.    Go to an apple store and listen to them first.  That's what I should have done.  I didn't know that they had them to demo until my friend told me that they had them there.  I thought they would be just as good or better than the triple fi, but they weren't.  I hope they fixed the cable issue that many had too.  If you don't like them you probably could get more than 300 for them  on ebay unless everyone is selling them for 300 now.

The stock tips that come with the 850's are terrific. I'd like to get more of those tips to use with some of my other IEM's with wide bores.

Same. I wonder if we can purchase them without spending an arm and 5 legs ;)...

I guess I'm in the minority because for me the stock tips actually don't work as well on these as other tips. I think UE TripleFi 10 tips in medium would be an ideal fit, but one of the tips I have ripped apart (victim of the gigantic, ruthless KEF M200 nozzles), so I'm currently using the small size pair which is working out decently.

 

UE900 tips work fine for me as well, but when A-B'ing I sense a more spacious sound with the TripleFi 10 ones (wider bore, thinner material).

 

EDIT: One day later and the stock mediums are working well now. Yesterday I couldn't get a good seal and was missing out on a lot of bass.

Yeah, the triplefi tips are great. I tried them on some of my other IEM's with good success. Never tried them on the 850's yet.

Well then I wouldn't mind buying those large JVC tips from you :).

There's a chance that they might work well for my ears on other IEMs, so I tend to keep all my tips if possible. Sorry. :o 

post #355 of 1945

shucks :P. I've never found that to be the case for me on any of my medium or small sized tips. Only large or no deal.

post #356 of 1945

I also use only the large tips.

You want to trade your medium tips for my large tips?  

post #358 of 1945

Sure, I'll PM you.

Got my mini to micro cable and RSA Predator amp/dac today and they sound soooooo *@!$%&^*#@ good with them and both haven't been broken in yet. This is a faptastic portable combo. I won't need to get a digital audio player now. smily_headphones1.gif Now I just have to sell off all of my desktop gear to make back the money I spent this past week.

without sounding dumb, why are the tips angled, out of the box?, all the instructions are japanese. don't want to trash a new pair if the tip doesn't swivel. presumably it sits at an angle to the ear?

 

 

 

 

The comfort is top class for me, almost like i'm not wearing iems.

 

Female vocals, same as the TH-900, wicked.
