Do you think any of these will improve what was done with S8F? or will it be another tequila?

I would like to see you return to the game FEARLESS.

I am a happy owner of Fearless S8F since about a month. Fantastic IEMs, very fast and nice technical approach, love it in a metal music.
However I found that the stock tips make then sound a bit harsh. I found that tips with wider inner diameter like the FLC8 tips provide better balance between highs and upper midrange.

Which other tips can you recommend?
Anyway, fantastic IEMs for fast and heavy music.

Your post made me realize that I haven't listened to my S8P's for a few months It’s a shame because I really like how they sound but the size and the long stem makes them uncomfortable for me to use on a regular basis. If you want to tame some treble harshness with tips; I rec a set of Newbee memory foam tips. They are available on both Amazon and Aliexpress and can be ordered in 6 pair packages. I use these tips on all my iems to enhance bass and take the edge off the upper mids and treble regions. Get the red version though; because the black have a reputation of breaking apart and not being as soft. Just my 2 cents.

Your post made me realize i havent listened to my S8P in about 1.5 months haha im always using my Sundaras hooked up to my desktop. Sundaras are good for crystal clearness, but the warmth and isolation from the S8P makes me love them equally if not a tad bit more than the Sundara.

I have another question.

I really like the S8F sound. However, the bass is very shy with low amount. I did not hear what most of the frequency response shown.

I sent my pair for FR measurements and the graph confirmed what I hear.

Did the sound change with some revision change? Did anyone meet similar S8F sound?

That’s not how it should graph - the Fearless S8 series is pretty bassy. That’s also a major roll-off; it looks like your unit has dead BAs in the bass or there was a leak somewhere when it was measured.

If that would be case in one IEM, I woudl consider that there is some failure, but this bass rolloff is present on both earphones.
