Nice synergy with the Sony 1ZM2. :) I tried the stock silicon ear tips… found them too thick and pretty abrasive. At least for me. So I have switched over to AZLA Xelastec ear tips. Working nicely so far. Will also try them with the AZLA SednaEarfit Light ear tips. :)

Received Softears RS10 CIEM last month and it ticks most of my boxes really well. Fit is midway between Audiophile and Pro. It has an easier fit than pro but slightly deeper insertion depth than the average shallow-ish audiophile fit.

Got to spend a lot of time with it as I was travelling all of first 2 weeks of this month and took RS10 CIEM along with me. Even though I really like the convenience of a TWS when travelling, a CIEM just creates a magical stage and space, and I listen to music more actively and enthusiastically with 'em than I would with a TWS, which is dam helpful when you have painfully boring, long layovers between flights. Plus a CIEM blocks out all the airport and plane noise really well. I much prefer it to ANC TWS IEMs but with good isolation comes the responsibility of always keeping an eye on the departure gate's screen so that one doesn't miss boarding. 😅 With RS10's looser fit, ear pressure build up was minimal, even at peak altitude when flying.

Sound wise, compared to the UIEM, I perceive a cleaner presentation, slightly better bass to treble balance, wider and cleaner soundstage, slightly better imaging and better treble extension. I also perceive slightly better detail retrieval, which I think is a culmination of all things working together to make it seem so.

Looking forward to taking it on stage soon and seeing how well it performs against my other CIEMs.

Enjoying the Turii Ti with the Sony 1AM2 on the road. It sounds more and more sumptuous as it burns in. :)

They look huge. How do you find the fit?
