For me the L JVC Spiral Dots fit great because they are soft but firm and fit a bit further out in my ear canal so the chamber is larger in my ear. To me the L Spiral Dots sound much better than L Ortofons.

 

Chamber = the acoustic space between the IEM eartip and the eardrum. 

 

THX to lee730 for turning me on to JVC Spiral Dots

You, Sir, might actually have bigger ears than my elephant ones. Haha. L Spirals might be too large for me then. Might try the Ms. Expensive tips though. Ugh.

 

Thanks for the info. =]

I got my RWAK240 back from Vinnie so I can use the Ref1 again, but I am having a lot of difficulties getting the fit right...man customs are easier to me. And REF1 sound is very dependant on fit. When the fit is right the sound is mean, not so easy to keep me so.

Did you have the same problem with your 1Plus2?

In my memory a bit less so, but maybe I am being increasingly spoiled with CIEMs.

Both should have the same fit as they are very much identical in size and shape

Probably has been mentioned, but I found tremendous improvement by seating the tips all the way down the nozzle. On 1p2, I liked them riding shallow the best.

That's a huge key for me too. With them seated as low as possible, the sound opened up more. That, and with the dual dynamics settling in better, and this phone has really grown more refined and done away with almost all of the initial criticisms I had. Truly excellent sounding now. I look forward to how it continues to settle in as the hours get to be more like 200. I'm probably still a touch shy of half that currently. **note the Answer FS in my sig!**

Yeah, I suppose so. I've continued to listen to both and compare them all along so I have a marker for how the Ref.1 is opening up. Which it is still. It's definitely reached a point where it does just about everything better.

Very reassuring!!

Dam now I don't want the dita😖... Everything better I good for me😊

I'm feeling better and better that this might be my final IEM for a long while. If I like it better than my ASG2, it will be for sure. I will no longer search for a better sound or phone... Roxanne, K10, SE will all be off my list.
