    Do they make an Ifi Match 4.4mm? I'm curious to try it...but not curious enough to abandon the beautiful sound out of the balanced port on my ZX300 :p

    Yup I guess old ears are better :). I really did think it was my ears too but my test showed I hear 21 Hz to 19.5 kHz, not bad for an old fart. but I suspect my brain is ignoring hiss. I did get an Ifi IEMatch to see if I can hear a difference. It just seems to make the sound quieter by say 3-4 DB and I loos detail. But if I plug my Solaris's into a Questile CMA400I (All class A components and current mode amp, on the balanced port I get loads of hiss. Beets me, perhaps I have selective hearing. Still loving the Solaris's , Absolute bargain. Today I emaild CampFire asking about the flex on the driver, you know that crackle you sometimes get on insertion. Apparently it is normal. Anyway that is what I call customer service, 15 minutes to reply to my email! Also loving the pure silver balanced cable from CA.

    OK just did it again, DX220 Stock amp full blast on pause, Definitely no Hiss. I put a mike to the earbus too In a silent room 0DB. The CMR400i I get 4DB of hiss (That is a supprise :frowning2:), the Mojo 0.5db hiss on a PC full blast. AK70MkII 0.3DB My mobile via a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter 7db Ouch. I have a Fio x5II somewhere and a sony WM something or other too I'll dig them out sometime and try them. I guess the Solarisis are the most sensitive IEM's I have.

    Not sure who recommended them, but I did a foamectomy on a pair of Symbios, they’re the best I’ve found so far.

    Oh really, did removing the foam make a big difference ? how comfort or sound ? I'm a detail freak, so I'll do anything to get more detail. Would foam add any or is the peel better ?

    Got some Spiral dots somewhere, on a pair of shure 535's I think with grommets to fill the gap, Wonder if they will fit. :)

    The spiral dots covers real nothing from the nozzle .. seems to be perfect size 568B1DF6-C2D9-4768-91FE-EA5DDBAE690E.jpeg

    These are close but not that good: 20190620_204144.jpg

    had read somewhere the best tip should be same size as the nozzle not bigger or smaller ? dunno if its true. but sounds great with them , think i keep them on .

    I believe it opens up the highs, whilst not damaging the bass.
  15. fokta
    try it.. I believe that is my statement...
    I used TFZ silicon foam, the diameter open bore is the same size with inner bore of Solaris... felt good... even better then the final e stock that come with it.. IMO..


    Not the best in seal, but get the jobs done..

    btw, foam really cut Low and High.. IMO. I dont like them, also got allergy reactions for me...
