    The M9 is pretty close to Z1R in my opinion. But I feel like they are quite different, and each have their own pros and cons. I don’t think the M9 could be a direct replacement for the Z1R. M9 also has fit issues with the vacuum effect seal.

    I never heard the m9 sorry.

    Its not a velco its a foam ) its very soft and feels like a nice pillow now haha.

    Its 1 side sticky foamy. Leaves no residue opon removal! Witch is perfect.

    Yeah, they're very close. I haven't had much issue with vacuum though.

    I did early on. You have to learn how to insert them correctly, which takes time lol. I struggled with insertion, fit and different tips for months before I finally figured it out and figured out the Sony Hybrid tips were best for me.

    The hybrid tips work best for me and only the 3 biggest ones. Though for some reason I get ear pain after a while. I can only figure that the housing is a little too long for the bowl of my ear and it stretches it a little. I have to tilt them towards my face or they press too hard on the rear portion of the bowls of my ears.

    The tip that makes the most bass in my experience has been the old black original Sony Hybrid Tips. They came with the Z5, N3 and are a slightly different shape than the new silicone Sony Tips that came with the IER-Z1R.


    Take note the original Hybrid Tips are not the Triple Comfort Tips. The Triple Comfort Tips have thick foam sides. Hybrid Tips have thin “rubber” silicone sides and the small line you can see around the outside. The easy way to tell is the Triple Comforts have a rough sidewall on the outside and the Hybrid is smooth.


    Different than some tips out there; these never change shape after years of use. Though also realize they don’t come in as many sizes as the included IER-Z1R tips.

    REPENT! Repent immediately and you may still be granted access to audiophile heaven.

    Probably leftovers from your other DYI filter removal trick that took the z1r from a $800 IEM to a $100,000 musical experience.

    Hi everybody, is it possible for you to post some images with Z1R and SE846 side by side? I'd like to buy these IER Z1Rs (I have the older sister, MDR Z1R) but I'm afraid they are really too big, heavy and annoying. Thank you all.

    I would but I just sold my 846s last week.

    Once you get the Z1Rs inserted right, you won't notice the weight or size. Just be patient because it takes about a week or so to figure out what tips work and for your ears to get used to them. I have relatively small ears and wear them around 4+ hours a day without any issue.
