    Try buying the Z1R LL tips, should be about $10. I find the vacuum seal effect disappears for the most part for me.

    Glad to see you here. I used to follow your posts in the fearless thread. Now I feel happy that I chose to get M9 over La hire/Roland :)

    The tips from MH755. Comes with the fake MH755 also. I tried many tips, but this the best so far for me. No mods done, but no vacuum effect and everything sound tighter, that M9 boringness gone!

    ier m9 has a crazy balance tuning. You can play around with its tips. It needs sealed but also needs air. Get to play around with the tips and find best one that allow some air for it. It give amazing outstanding imaging ive ever been in iem game. Almost on par with KSE1200 but with a better tonality.

    Yeah they really will sound boring if inserted too deep or if they’re really plugged in your ear.

    What a lucky user here, i start my first impression with M9 just with M size of hybrid. I feel it's not perfectly sealed just barely sealed. So im just lazy to change tips yet because I want to hear the first impression. Then, M9 leaves me "wow" non stop for everything. I m just keeping the M size on my M9 still. Really darn good iem. Cant beat the imaging.

    Yep that’s exactly what you want. Barely sealed is pretty much perfect.

    Just got time for a balance M9 tonight with 9038s. I would say this e1da 9038s is just so transparent. The M9 sounds too wide and even more controlled bass. Not really sure if i like this kind of signature but the M9 becomes super wide with 9038s. Lesser midbass, vocals a tad bit dry.

    The tips from MH755 also make M9 brighter... perfection achieved.

    Finally, after many days waiting for a good offer, I've get the M9 at Amazon Warehouse Japan at an irresistible price. As soon as I receive them, I will share my impressions.

    Is anyone using them with Spiral Dots?

    My personal experience with amazon warehouse: ordered ier m7, got em, inside the box: empty. Not kidding, still waiting for my refund, hopefully the Japanese will be way more cool with you

    to summarize what's happening on these three;
    1. Sony hybrid Silicon (choose the best size please, this is important): the best out of these three. Personally i think sony design/tune M9 with their own tips. The sound of M9 is somewhat remind me of KSE1200 with this tip. The vocals is forward but not "in head" style while the background music lingers around with quite amount of volume so you can listen to the details, almost holographic. Again, KSE1200 holographic is somewhat next step above, the details of background music is even louder and well separate.
    2. Symbio W: The most highs out of these three and bring the vocals "in head" kind of presentation. Im not really a fan on this since the imaging and the staging are somewhat reduced.
    3. Spiral Dots: Interesting tips here due to the wide bore design. To me, M9 isn't design for wide bore tips. These tips make the vocals to be laid back, sounds like behind the background music but even bring up the background music even further. Basically you do hear the background music more than the vocals.

    Yes, it's a risk from Warehouse products. My experience it's very good with them and I feel calm with Amazon warranty.

    A precise and great description, thank you very much!

    I’d recommend the Z1R hybrid tips instead of the stock M9 tips. For some reason they stopped the vacuum effect with deeper insertion for me. They might be slightly thinner silicone? Not sure...

    I bought a set of spare Z1R tips for AUD $11 from Sony’s spare parts supplier.
