    I like the jvc spiral tips with everything.

    I get a good fit with them also(lyra ii and vega).

    For a firm silicone fit try the Symbio Mandarines (i like Large wide bore), they lock my Dorado in place.

    I am going to try them with the Comet.

    *edit: large wide bore

    I recommend that you should 100% switch to Mandarin Symbio W tips: it makes the Comet's mids and treble sound wonderful without losing too much bass.

    I did a google search and didn’t find much except Facebook which I do not have one and It says W tips. What is the difference between the W tips and L bore?
    Edit: I see W is wide bore and N is normal I don’t see any L bore. Also do you know anywhere in the USA that these can be purchased new?
    The W and N I can only find on some European website.

    Symbio has W for wide bore and N for normal. I'm not sure if its a typo or perhaps they previously used L for large bore? The person(s) who make these is in Hungary so it may be a language issue.

    With their DD based IEMs, the only part which made contact with my ear was the nozzle inside my ear canal. I basically had to rely on the cable over my ear, combined with the eartips inside my ears to keep the IEMs in place. With the BA based ones, the IEM is actually seated inside my ear. The Atlas & Comet resemble the DD based CA offerings, but with the added issue that the nozzles are parallel to the IEM body, which means they are meant to be “jammed” directly into the ear canals, without the benefit of the cable running over the ear, although it seems over-the-ear wear is possible. I’ll have to wait to demo the Atlas & Comet in person.

    I found both Atlas and Comet to be comfortable and securely held in position with over-ear wear. Atlas fit better than Comet for me.

    Over-the-ear works with the Comets but I find the sound is best with normal insertion.

    I prefer them wearing downwards.
    To eliminate the cable weight completely, I use a shirt clip

    Folks-I love my Vegas (with SXC8 cable), and am waiting for a review of the Atlas to come out, but can anyone weigh in about the performance gap between the Atlas and Vegas please? Is it incremental, or significant? and, how? I try to find something I love and stick with it-so not prone to capriciously trading gear....
    thank you!

    With my brief Audition from CanJam, it is incremental. To my ears Atlas did not blow away Vega. Rather, Atlas refined the upper mids smoothness where it used to be bit sibilant with some female voices but now controlled. Also, I hear a tiny bit more soundstage width but equal depth from Vega with Atlas. The biggest improvement is the smooth and controlled rise from mids to treble with Atlas and a bit more resolved but bigger sounding bass. I suspect Vega's bass resolution can be improved by using Atlas's pure silver which I intended to buy after it shows up on CA website.
