    Lost my right side eartip for these so got some spinfits. Definite improvement clarity-wise, quite happy.

    Sennheiser IE300 Review & Measurements

    Still loving these bad boys. Just had a listening session with Chemical Brothers, Stone Temple Pilots and Frank Sinatra (yes I'm a basic gen xer) and it was a good time.

    Sennheiser IE300 Review & Measurements

    I had my right side die too, but I don't know if it was a connection issue; when I swapped the cables over I still had sound in the left and nothing in the right. I've had my replacements for a month and they seem fine.

    Sennheiser IE300 Review & Measurements

    From the moment I got them the sound in the right channel cut out on occasion, but came back when I adjusted the fit. I think I thought I just had an improper fit when this was happening. But then one day the right side just went completely dead. Got my replacements today. No problems so far...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Yeah this is me too. Nothing will be as comfortable as the Xelento but these feel pretty good.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    These have been glued into my ears for three weeks now. I’m very fond of them.

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    I bought the FD5 as a replacement for my sadly destroyed Xelentos (couldn’t afford a new pair). They’re a little bulkier than the Xs but not too much though. It’s a more airy, wider and balanced sound signature than the Xs which I’ve come to enjoy. I don’t see myself replacing them, I think...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    I've been using these tips that I got with my Oriveti OH500. Great fit, sounds beautiful with the FD5. I had an hour long train commute this morning and did not once take my phone out of my pocket, was just enjoying the tunes :)

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Not to be a bore but I’m enjoying these, just been listening to some Soundgarden, Aphex Twin, Massive Attack, Wu Tang, U2, Prince, Bowie and all my pleasure centres were activated. (Note: beer was involved). A very enjoyable IEM.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    I reckon if I AB’d them with the Xelentos (which sadly I can’t :( ) I’d still prefer the Beyers. They had more weight and presence and a slight coldness which I loved. But I’m enjoying the FD5!

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Got mine this morning and been listening all day. I started out with the 4.4 plug on my ZX300s and was impressed with the detail and soundstage but I did think I could detect a kind of scratchiness or brightness in the treble which could become fatiguing. Switched to SE and that went away which...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    My beloved Xelentos died last night and I can’t afford a new pair so I ordered a pair of these. Dunno if they’ll be as good but I’m excited to receive them.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Still getting this problem with the connection cutting out when I’m on the train. Doesn’t matter what codec I’m using or where the ZX300 is positioned. But the connection is rock-solid with the iPhone. Shame really.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Been using my ZX300 with the Senny PXC550 these past few days as I’ve injured me ear hole and can’t insert my Xelentos. The sound is good but compared to my iPhone I get loads of dropouts: is the ZX300 not great with the Bluetooth connection then? I’m using connection preferred LDAC,

    Any of you guys have noise induced hearing loss too?

    I'm in a similar position, although my tinnitus is very mild and doesn't hinder me in any way. Ain't no such things as tinnitus treatments is there? i thought you were stuck with it.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I I’ve got thousands of tracks on it but I feel I get the same ones up front when I hit random. I could be just being crazy though lol

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Continuing to love these, especially now I’ve found the ideal tips. they’re looking pretty endgame to me :) One weird thing is the remote; earlier this week I had full iPhone functionality but now I’m back to only having the play/pause button working and the volume buttons doing nothing. Does...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Yep, I’d appreciate having intelligent playlists, e.g ‘Top 50 most played tracks’. I remain convinced that the random play all tracks function doesn’t work properly although I could be mistaken.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Something Sony needs to address with the ZX300: the Recently Added function. It is terrible.

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Ah ok thanks for this. Not sure I like the idea of sticking that in my Lightning to 3.5 connector though. Adapters going into adapters!

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Oh really? Can you provide linkage please? I’d buy a cable that has two terminations, one SE and one balanced but I dunno if such a product exists.

    Nope, definitely different tips :)

    Oriveti OH300 + OH500 (3/5 driver hybrid IEM's) Thread

    The 500s aren’t uncomfortable as such, the casing is buttery smooth, but I prefer the skinny low profile ONPs
