I picked up the Noble 4 universals (Wizards). They sound great and I am beyond impressed.

Anyone have any experience with using Comply tips with the universals? I'm always looking for a better fit...


Personally I find that the complys cut off quite some highs. I accept this, but since they are foam, they do tend to retain whatever dirt sticks onto them. This makes them very disgusting, and oil seems to cause them to disintegrate eventually. I much prefer plastic or rubber tips because of this, regardless of the sound

Hi FullCircle, I've bought the K10 for awhile and found its mid a bit dry ( not as lush as the Fitear). Is it normal and can you recommend me anything to make the mid sound more emotional ?

First listening is really promising. I still think the gold nuggets would have been awesome, good thing though, I don't see the K10's when I'm listening :wink:

Honestly you'd have to send them in to Brannan where they could be looked over.
 
Considering I've never heard a Fitear (any model) I really can't give an educated guess as to if things are all normal. Of course I suspect that they are fine, as for both sides to be malfunctioning equally poor would be rather odd.

I cant speak for other IEM's, but when I used complys on my Image S10, I put them on backwards. IMHO, it opened up the sound. Just something to try.

I'd also suggest trying the TS Comfort series Comply's. I find that because silicone tips seem to cause irritation for me that I have to use foam tips so I've used a few different types to tune the sound like others due with silicone tips. In general terms I've found the regular T series tips can attenuate treble a little but the TS series seems to have a less affect.

I stumbled on to that last night by accident. I was actually looking for a song by "Fink" which is known for a much "calmer" genre.
 
 
But something about this song.....    gets the blood pumping

 
Bought the new Fink - Hard believer album when it released. So good with the K10!

I got the ups slip for my k10's so I have to wait untill tomorrow :frowning2:, for some reason i'm supposed to write a check to the sender for $42.81 though. Did anyone else have this? I don't mind paying it but why am I being C.O.D for 42.81? I assumed it was a customs fee at first, but it says to make the check out to the sender.
