Might be interested in the Andro if you are in EU.
Agree, for Andro’s or Polaris the old style case were good but for the Solaris with a big cable I find this case ideal and comfortably fits into my jacket pocket without causing any uncomfortable lumps n bumps.
Horses for courses at the end of the day, this case or the original case, I’m happy with either and there’s plenty of aftermarket cases out there to choose from as an alternative. My Andromeda-SS I keep in a pelican case as the original case just isn’t big enough with the cable I’m using, it’ll fit but it’s a squeeze. Not a problem anymore as I’ll be putting them up for sale now I have the Solaris.

Some people on the forum are selling theirs due to fit issues. Is that prominent or just a case of small ears?

I would say I have medium size ears and the Solaris fits me great . If u have really small ears .. that could be a problem ..

Forgot to report the side quest : Cable pairing...

1) Verus cable,
Unique Cable that had 2 jack input, 2.5 TRRS and 3.5 SE (grounding purpose).

(To whom may concern, Sorry I take the pic, just to show or get the idea of the cable, sorry & Tq)

Pairing with Solaris and DX221mk2, it helped on darker background.... but there's a effect on long decay, it gones when I unplug the 3.5 jack.

2) EA Janus Dynamic

My point, If you guys ever try Hongkong Singer, Zhao Peng, its a full detail mid centric song...
then u pair Janus Dynamic in the middle... u will get Rumble... detail rumble...
Amazed....

For me, I prefer EA Janus Basso for Solaris.

3) Leonidas II Octa

Overwhelming Micro detail, with still puncy Low.
Point highlight, is Airy and the space imaging from Solaris was image very good.

4) Dita Oslo

my point, The multi adapter is very helpful, from 2.5 TRRS, 3.5 SE, 3.5 TRRS and 4.4 TRRS, almost every Jack coverage in DAP portfolio...
the cable have the effect of greasy if you hold it...
Sound wise... I am subjective, and can't comment about this, if u demo this after using EA cable...
I hope on my next visit, the Oslo Cable still available...

I have medium ears and they fit great after I changed the tips. I had to go from my normal Spinfit 240s to 100s. I miss the extra isolation from the double flange, but I get a perfect seal much easier.

Wow! Cleopatra Octa had the same effect as the Andromeda on that regard!

tried it in e-earphones when i was in Tokyo last week. the sound is more delicate, detail and better sound stage than my Andromedas though I think the Andro have a better overall tonality, but I cannot possibly wear it for more than 30mins due to the size. I guess I am glad that's the case for the sake of my bank account. :darthsmile:

Dude, you know what you're doing posting the picture without commentary! That's called baiting your audience lol

Seriously though, I've appreciated your commentary on the Solaris (and feel the same way about them that you do). I'm sure many are looking forward to your comparison.

Unfortunatley I'm slowly realizing (or slowly admitting) that the Solaris don't fit me really well (I have small, shallow ears) after many months of use even though I'm enamored with the sound signature and enjoy the sound nearly as much as my Utopia.

Guessing the Sony's will give me the same fit problems given their size...

May look at the Rai Penta. I dont think they'll sound as good, but an iem that sounds pretty good that I can wear all the time is better than a unicorn sounding iem that is just a little too big to wear frequently.
