I’m interested of trying some other tips, what is the nozzle size of these and which spinfit/symbio/comply should I try?
Dear friend,

FH5 max size of the sound tube is 6.5mm. So it's recommended to buy ear tips which inner diameter are between 4-6mm.

Best regards

Can someone recommend a more portable (read lighter) cable that isn't super expensive? The stock LC-B is ok but it's heavier than the shells so it's not great for a lot of moving around. Angled mmcx connectors and a braided construction are a must.

I'm using this one, soft as a shoe lace and lightest I have, the connectors match the colour of the shells too, quite enjoy it.

Thanks. It does look very sexy, however I do need angled mmcx connectors. Because of the angle of my ear canals the front of the shells gets angled away from my head so the connectors stick out causing discomfort and look funny :)
This any good?

New owner of FH5 (bought 2nd hand for a good price).
I'm blown away by what I'm hearing out of my QP1R (with very light EQ on mids). I was telling a friend that's probably the best ratio price/performance I've ever had. (and I had a tons of IEMs).
I think that's the 1st time I really like an hybrid IEMs not costing 2K

My QP1R is by far a better partner than my ZX300, probably because of the class A power. It plays a major role in the overall SQ quality vs ZX300 (3.5)

I'm now very curious about the FH7!

Thanks for the tip mate. The quality is surprisingly good, especially for the price. The connectors are nice and tight. The hooks aren't memory wire but are shorter than Fiio's, which I like. The braid below the Y-split could be a little better but for the price I can't ask for much more. I just hope it doesn't stiffen quickly like my Fiio one.

Yes but that also depends on your source.
Thanks gLer,

I just order FiiO K3 DSD DAC to use at work. It has 2.5 balance output. I already use upgrade 3.5mm cable from FiiO. So I not sure that 2.5 balance cable from aliexpress will be a good improvement
Any cable suggestion, will be very appreciate
Thank you very much.
