Alternative to IE800

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi all.

I love the sound of my IE 800 but somehow they are that comfortable for me (tried different tips) so I was wondering if there's an alternative out there that you can suggest. As I mentioned the sound is just about perfect for me so that's what I am aiming for with better comfort. I would consider customs if necessary.

Thank you all in advance.

Alex

Anyone?

Yeah for that kind of money, and if comfort is still an issue, customs are definitely the way to go.

How are they not fitting? Not getting a consistent seal? Just the feeling of a tip in your ear? I don't own the IE800 as I see it has to be a really shallow insertion and I have rather large ear canal openings - it was a struggle finding tips to get my new JVC 850's to fit... 

 

The 850's might also be an option come to think of it.

They do fit well, is that I don't find them very comfortable after a while. The tips are proprietary and not easy to find alternatives.

That really depends on what sound signature you're looking for, and what your budget is. Did you pay retail for the IE800s?

As I mentioned I love the sound of the IE800 in particular the crisp highs so I would like to stay with the same signature. Budget can be up to $1500 and yes I paid retail for the ie800.
Cheers
