    I'm certain that I enjoy with Spiral Dots most recently. Some people here said it sounds weird with Spiral Dots. I did experience that for the first impression but after some songs, my brain adjusted to it. Spiral Dots on M9 sounds so holographic ngl.

    But now go back to the Sony Hybrids and your ears won't even have to adjust to think the Hybrids are the best. The bass of the Hybrids is what keeps them in my ears.

    I poked holes in my bargain Amazon clear silicone mushroom tips recommended here (HIFI Man) and ellimated vacuum and they are amazing. I won't be trying anything different.

    It has taken me several days to realize that these IEMs must be placed exactly as they appear in the photo to appreciate their full potential, with the cable guide above the ear and not on it

    Very true! They can be quite finnicky to be honest. Can be slightly annoying at times. They can sound open and airy or they can sound closed in and lifeless depending on how they are inserted and positioned.

    ngl, this is by far one of the most excellent IEMs on giving spatial cues once u got it correct.

    Well. I got a pair of those Z1R (ML size) tips. Punched a small hole in each. Z1R hybrid tips make my M7 sound better than the supplied ones! (yeah I punched holes in them too) :).
    Bass has so much clarity now, and midrange sounds more open. Another benefit is less finicky insertion. I just put them in and they good to go. With the supplied ones, no matter how much I fiddled I always had this sensation that it would take few minutes for them to settle in my ears in order to sound good. Very happy!

    When I tried the M9, they created a vacuum-like seal in my ear canal, which felt quite unpleasant. And removing them felt even worse. But I didn’t have either of those problems with the Z1R.

    Where were you able to get the Z1R tips from?

    Hey, M9 is full BA with zero venting. Z1R has venting for the DD. That explains everything. Some people dont care about vacuum feeling. Me personally, i dont like vacuum feeling.

    I’m looking at either the M9s or possibly QDC Anole VXs. Has anybody heard both? If so, can you provide your thoughts on the comparison between them?

    Right now I have the Z1Rs and would like something to compliment them. I’ve also been looking at the 64 Audio u18t or u12t.

    So many great IEMs available, so few ears.

    What kind of complementary that u are looking for?
  15. Peter Ruby
    Something very neutral and something I can wear anywhere. I don't feel comfortable wearing the Z1Rs in public.
