In my case I picked up a MS, M, and ML from e-earphone to try the different sizes. In my experience, pretty much all Sednafit tips run slightly large. I'm a medium with most tips and all of my Sednafit tips are MS. You might end up sizing down a half size from your normal.

I’m happy with the Comply foam tips for these. Usually I don’t like foam and what foam does to the sound, but in this case I like the Comply foam tips.

They have a "variety pack" that you can get from Amazon. That's the way I went, since for some tips I need different sizes for each ear.
I saw that - I think that's what I'll go with. Thanks.

I may try these, as well - thanks.

Potentially promising news for the next Netflix update. I've wondered what was taking them so much longer than others given how extensive their library of 5.1 titles is.

That's potentially good news. I just wish they'd enable it on Apple TVs, or better yet, my iPad Pro that has the same processor as other models that do have it enabled. But I'm stuck with only my iPhone.

The current Apple TV lacks the necessary hardware. The upcoming one though will surely support it.

So the spacial audio doesn’t work on all iPads? Or the Apple TV?

Does not work on Apple TV. It requires a specific chip on the host device as well which isn't part of the SOC if I'm not mistaken which could explain why @Mouseman iPad doesn't support it.

Edit: The specific list of devices can be found here.

Spatial audio is kind of neat, but I’m not sure how many people are really going to watch a movie on their iPhone. I’ve tried it with my 12 Mini, but it’s just a bit small. An iPad may be more useful for that since it’s bigger, but I’d be more interested to use this feature with my TV especially in a situation where my fiancé would be sleeping in the same room, where me using headphone wouldn’t wake her or keep her up.

iPad makes sense, iPhone really doesn't, I agree. Apple TV needs it, the issue is that the way Spatial audio works right now, it makes it sound like the sound is emanating from the device it's playing out of. For the Apple TV, it would actually sound like it was the Apple TV. So if you have the Apple TV off to the side, it might actually make it sound like it's coming from the side of where you're seeing it all go down. Apple will definitely need to think up how they're going to do that setup with the Apple TV so it works flawlessly with very little user input into correcting the system themselves. But I certainly agree, they do need to get the feature working on the Apple TV as it is the place it would be most at home in.

Tried the Azla's - I didn't hear that much difference from the stock tips. I returned them, but may purchase a 2 pack of ML, which was the best fit for me, just because they seemed to stick a little better.

I own Westone UM Pro 30's & Shure 846's , both of which I use as iems when gigging with my band. But, I must say, these APP's sound very good to me, and the obvious convenience (I'm an Apple user) has me reaching for them first, even over my other wired iems.

That sounds like a potentially defective unit. I've run into a set that had a failing bass response and the owner had the pair replaced under Apple's warranty.
So I got a replace and now I have a revision model with the mesh grills that go deeper the housing. Sound is perfect!
