After checking the box of my Kinera Tyrs, turns out it only came with 3 pairs of "normal" black eartips, and no final E type tips kinda sad and embarassed after thinking that the included tips were not final tips (but they do replace my BLON BL-03 tips to give a better seal)
I guess I'll need to buy the Type E tips separately, especially for my Final e3000s (got them secondhand with generic white tips), any difference in the black colored E Type tips with the colored variants?
That's a shame, I bought a second hand Kinera Tyr recently for the Final E black tips specifically. They cost me $15 USD (IEM + tips) and there were indeed a few sets of Final E tips inside (there's even a phamplet inside stating these are genuine Final E tips). These tips actually do go at $15 USD by themselves, so I thought why not get a free IEM with the tips. BTW the Kinera Tyr isn't that great but I really like the black Final E tips as they tame the treble and are good for bright IEMs.
Another cheap option to get Final E tips is to get the Final E500 at $20 USD on Drop, u can consider the Final E500 is actually $5 USD as such haha. I don't have it but it seems to have good imaging and is good for binaural recordings based on reviews.
My friend who has both clear Final E tips and the black ones say the clear ones are brighter in the treble, but can't confirm as I've never tried the clear ones. Maybe u can ask the rest in the Final Audio thread here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/final-audio-design-impressions-and-discussion-thread.613641/
