    I'm measuring 5.4mm at the widest point. I tried some spare Comply 400s and they felt too tight, so I think the 500s would be the best.

    These sound really great. Unfortunately, it seems like the right earphone tube with the drivers is not secured well. It popped out when removing one of the silicone tips. I noticed it loosening a bit when removing tips beforehand. Left one is fine, though. Any recommended glue to fix this? Exchanging is a pain.

    Edit: Scratch that last part. With closer examination, I think exchanging these are my best bet.
    Edit 2: Wrong unit of measurement

    Dear friend,

    It's maximum diameter of the FH1 is 6.0mm.
    The Comply500 series would be suitable.

    Best regards

    Dear friend,

    Thanks for your kind feedback of the earphone tube. Sorry for bringing inconvenience to you. We would also report to our engineer about that and improve that in later batch.

    Best regards

    There really aren't many impressions on these. Still on the fence if I should buy these (especially with the EU market basically just changing the dollar sign for a euro sign :rolling_eyes:)

    Which ear tips would be the balanced vs bass boost?
    The solid black narrow bore or the transclucent wider bore?

    Dear friend,
    A. Balanced Ear Tips
    [​IMG]
    Color: Black for both exterior silicon and interior tube
    Size: 3 pairs in small, medium and large sizes
    Diameter of the tube: φ3.5mm
    Applicable installation diameter: φ3.5-φ6.0mm
    Material: Silicon
    Balanced ear tips means the sound signature is balanced preferably when applied to FiiO F9 Series as well as the newly-released FH1, instead of all types of earphones. This type of ear tips possesses strong cohesion force on the sound, as well as good bass elasticity and sound reproduction.
    The diameters are φ3.5mm for the tubes of both the ear tips and the earbuds. When the sound travels through the air, the consistency of the tubes is good for reducing resonant harmonic when the air flows. Meanwhile, the high frequency sound has strong directivity. When passing through narrow and twisted sound tube, it fades away very fast. So it requires the driver cavity to be as smooth as possible, in order to ensure the extended highs as well as smooth mids and vocals.

    B. Bass Ear Tips

    [​IMG]
    Color: Black for exterior silicon and Red for interior tube
    Size: 3 pairs in small, medium and large sizes
    Diameter of the tube: φ4.5mm
    Applicable installation diameter: φ4.5-φ7.0mm
    Material: Mixed silicon
    Apart from making an attractive looking, the bi-color design can also help improve the wearing experience and fasten the ear tip tightly to the earbud tube. Generally for For bi-color design, it will use two types of silicon with different hardness ranging from 30° to 60°. The exterior part uses silicon in low hardness from 30° to 40° for better sound isolation and wearing comfort, while the interior tube part uses silicon in 30° to 40° hardness to ensure stable wearing. Meanwhile, the real bi-color ear tips has a clear boundary line while the fake one doesn't have obvious boundary line with one color penetrating to the other.
    The bigger tubes of the bass ear tips can result in slower transient response and less elasticity than the balanced ones. The Airflow shares the same principle as the water flow. For example, if the water volume and time is fixed, the flow is more rapid when running through the small tube than the big one. In the same way, when using the bigger-tube bass ear tips, you can feel the sound to be more moderate and a little loose.

    Hope this help!

    Best regards

    Kudos to Amazon's distribution centers for being quick and efficient.

    I've been listening mostly to rock, metal, and acoustic music since I got these with the intention of using them when I wanted to listen to these genres. My other pairs of IEMs are bassy or v-shaped, and I use them for various EDM genres.

    I love how these sound. I've been using them with Comply tips since I find silicone tips irritating to wear; as a result, I think they're a bit bassier than without. The bass is full and present, but the mids aren't drowned in this bass. Vocals are a joy to listen to, as is the sound of guitar and other mid-range instruments. Highs are great. Cymbals and other "sparkly" sounds are clear and present.

    Received my set just earlier today. Took a bit of trouble removing the earpieces from the tight foam packaging. They look gorgeous in blue. MMCX connection snaps in tightly and securely, hope it stays that way with repeated use. The braided balanced cable looks awesome, too bad I won't be able to use it since I don't have any DAPs that support 2.5mm balanced out. I've ordered a 4.4mm cable from AE to try later on. Would have gotten a 2.5mm to 4.4mm adapter so I could use the FiiO cable, but the adapter costs as much as the new 4.4mm cable I ordered, so I scrapped the earlier plan.

    The fit is amazing. Reminded me of the SE846 which I miss. Absolutely great ergonimics and touch. Build looks sturdy enough, but I'll watch out for the nozzle as the earlier user pointed out.

    As for sound, I'm running them SE out of my non-audiophile Xiaomi Mi5 phone, using the black tips with red stems. They're definitely V-shaped, and very bassy, I wasn't prepared for that. The midbass is skull-rattling, too much for my tastes. A bit of bass bleed, and mids slightly recessed. The treble is pleasant so far, smooth and shimmery without any metallic tinge. No treble city like some Chinese hybrids tend to be. It reminds me of my first hybrid, the Dunu DN-1000 but with more midbass and less recessed mids. Truthfully, it needs some work. I'll do some tip-rolling, burning-in and plug it to a proper DAP later. But these are my first impressions.

    How would these compare to the Yamaha EPH-100? I'm trying to decide between the Ibasso, Fiio FH1 and Oriveti Basic.
