    Got mine Spiral Dot++ from Amazon Japan: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07NX64RZJ/

    Size is exactly the same as Final E type: I have a slight size difference between my ears and with both Final and Spiral I use medium for left ear and medium-large for right ear.

    do you have the "normal" spiral dots too ? is there a difference ? the ++ version is insane expenisve for some tips.... at least here in germany the normal goes for around 15 euro and the ++ 52 euro

    008AB05D-1592-4F8E-95D3-A9ECF95222D4.jpeg Okay guys , I tried something to get perfect seal with spiral dots :)
    Seems to work very well . Took carefully out the foam of the symbio w and inserted it into the spiral dots :) let’s take a listen and comparison to normal spirals :)

    I do this, it works great. I also like to put medium foams in with large symbios or spinfits. Works a treat

    Hmm maybe I have to order some medium symbios for the foam :) to test it out :D
  6. cr3ativ3
    but it worked very well , you get a better isolation with the foam , with the advantage of the perfect bore size from the spiral dots with solaris :)

    okay .. found a symbio w medium in my drawer. put the foam into a spiral dots L .
    effect is the same but the tips are more comfy to use :) thanks for the great idea.
    the combination sounds awesome with solaris ... maybe i should try the same with my legend x now :D

    have a nice day all and enjoy the music :)

    By far my favourite combination and the most comfortable is the symbio large with the medium foams! More comfortable for longer listening sessions and the best seal.

    For me the spiral dots , gives a better sound with Solaris than the symbios , because the bore size is exactly the same as the nozzle .
    Im very happy with the medium size foam in the L spirals . :)

    I keep on going back and forth between the symbio and the spiral dots... I find that the spiral dots give a sense of openness to all of the frequencies but some of the mid frequency definition and mid bass slam is lost in comparison to the symbio. I need to spend more time with the spiral dots to get used to the changes but I listen to a lot of rock and metal so that extra definition and slam given to the midrange is really hard to sacrifice for the airiness provided by the spiral dots. Ahh the joys of this hobby! This is why I always take reviews and recommendations with a pinch of salt unless I have some more background info on the reviewers preferences and gear.

    I hear metal 99% of the time too :)

    But that’s interesting. For me the spirals delivere a better slam ... maybe I get a better seal with them !? I dunno

    Try the intro from Equilibrium - Unbesiegt for comparison. If you have this awesome track :)

    Possibly! I imagine that the ear anatomy has a big part to do with changes in the sound based on tips etc. I get a good deal on both so I’ll have to do some further experimenting. The Solaris sound amazing with both so it is really a win-win situation either way! Also it might be worth trying the campfire silicon tips.... I find these to be a lot like the spiral dots but with little to no gap between the end of the Solaris bore and the end of the tip... by far the most comfortable tip (for me) and fits closer to the ear.

    Of all the tips I have tried Spiral Dots are by far the best. I went a size smaller than what I usually wear, and boom!!! Instant magic. Isolation went through the roof, to the point where I listen to my music while driving with windows rolled down.
    Almost no loss of details.
    And yes, they let the music breathe, increase soundstage and micro details.
    Best tips and well worth the money.

    Does someone have experience with LCD-XC? I use Campfire Atlas and am very fine with them, but looking for new experience. I'm considering Solaris and LCD-XC. Regarding LCD-XC I'm interested whether they are superior to mentioned IEMs (Atlas, Solaris)? I use LPGT as a source.

    Thanks in advance.
