I'd definitely recommend to try these to anyone who still struggles with the fit.
Even though they are advertised as tips for wireless iems, they work with wired just as well :) And with Solaris they are better for me than CP145, CP155 and some other Spinfits i have, don't know the number.

Ahh they only go up to 13mm. That's a shame, I need 14 else I just don't get a seal. The curse of having large ears.

Fly in just to say DX220Max tamed Solaris OG Hiss, consider unnoticeable...
Since DX220Max power is big, Imbalanced on Low volume listening, but can be solved by lowering Volume at the Music player (Yeah, DX220Max have 2 volume control, Music player and Amplifier).
Great sound...

Hello to all Solaris fans, i'm glad to be among you now :)

Some first impressions in random order:
1. These are crazy sensible to hiss, more so than Andromeda if memory serves me well.
Not an issue when music is playing, still it bothers me a little. So far e1da 9038d gives me the blackest background with (almost) no hiss.

2. Comfort is ok. Nothing will ever be as comfortable as Westones, their shape and Star tips just fit me perfectly, but these aren't so bad as well.

3. Sound is very impressive, but there are tons of reviews on this topic, my experience with higher end gear is limited, and i don't have the lingo to do them justice.
I never tried the OG or SE versions, the only other CA i had was Andromeda 2019, and Solaris 2020 is better in every way for my ears, especially with bass, it was severely lacking in Andro for me. Solaris may be just a bit behind in details and resolution, but it's still more than enough for me, and more importantly, Solaris sounds so much more fun.

4. From all the tips i have SpinFit CP360 give me the best fit and sound. I'm using the same M size i usually do. I've still ordered Xelastec tips, since they are so popular.

Zero hiss balanced on WM1A or WM1Z.

They sell new stuff through .deals or just refurb & B-stock?
Campfire doesn’t do “sales” per se on new stock. Their sales have always been on open-box/b-stock/used IEMs.
