    You could try the VEClan website, look in the basic cable section and have one custom built. They’re great value, I got a custom length also via the comments section when ordering (for my ES100) 60 cm)

    One of the reasons I was interested in the Comet was the more straight forward fitting of it. Monitor style iems never work for me as I can't get a good seal on the right ear frustratingly.

    Have you tried using different sized tips in each ear?
    Sometimes ear canal sizes differ.

    (I use a larger size in my left ear).
  4. davidcotton
    Yep, it's the angle of the right ear more than the size of it which is annoying. Small is too small and medium up is too big. I've even tried going customs a few times and they haven't worked out either for some reason that we can't figure. Irony is I don't even like iems that much but I need the isolation because of work and headphones a)don't isolate as much as iems in my experience and b)being a glasses wearer at work headphones get irritating fast :frowning2:

    I use spiral tips mostly.
    Also they come in five sizes so i bought all five.

    That means there is more of a chance of a fit. They fit on most earphones but not all.

    I have also have had some luck with symbio tips.

    I also bought symbio tips. Unfortunately 10 days after it arrived into the destination country, it is still not delivered to me. I hope it is not lost or something.

    Symbio tips forever to get to you. Took about 35 days to get to Canada.

    I think my symbio took around 3 weeks to the states.

    Be patient guys. Symbio tips are the pinnacle of tip wizardry for me. Great isolation, and yet no coloration of sound which happens with comply tips. They're definitely worth waiting for!

    However, one can produce his/her symbios by him/herself by removing the plastic nozzle parts of spare comply tips and sticking them into the silicone tips of choice. I did it with my spiral dots and they sound great as well!

    You may optionally need to trim the outward bursting foam segments with a sharp knife (surgical blades are great for this) in order to achive excellence. Results are quite similar to symbios, with the added spiral dot supremacy!

    Am going to do this soon when I get the spirals in. I got 2 packs of symbio W tips and none of the sizes fit my ear (they don’t have the memory of a comply or mashmellow foam so they pop out instantly) so I will post here when done

    Why did I not think of this sooner?!! Love this, I have loads of foam tips kicking about that I can bodge into my spin fits, great idea.

    I had the pleasure to audition the Legend X universal this afternoon at a local store. It made me smile knowing that I'm now very very satisfied with my Atlas. I read that many sees the Legend X as the next step coming from Atlas's sound signature. But to me, the Atlas is more engaging. There's more emotion to the music as if I'm right there. I'm a drummer and on some of my music I can feel the vibrations of the toms that is just not reproduced accurately on my other IEMs. Or the plucking of the guitar or bass. This is while the rest of the music playing. Atlas is just very competent.

    It makes me think whether the Cascade is Atlas but in a more comfortable wear and forget headphones.

    Back to the Legend X, I think it is very refined and competent but in other areas. Perhaps it is just tuned differently. I think the mid-bass area is not as punchy. Again perhaps just the tuning. I did found out there's some driver flex when I put them on my ears. It sounded like metal/foil vibrating. Is that driver flex? If it is, I'm grateful my Atlas doesn't produce that problem. The Atlas would at worst not make any sound until the pressure equalise.

    Only problem with homemade adapters such as these is that they can come off the nozzle quite easily.

    I like the Symbio tips myself, but I have to use the smallest size. I normally use medium tips with other types of tips.
    I've found that for my ears, I position the Atlas as if being worn down, but then I hook the earphone cable up and around my ears. It does look a little funny, adding to my weird/geek status at work.
    I am going to try custom eartips next, just to see if it adds to the seal.
