    Ahh, well that would explain most everything.

    These are the tips I’m talking about (top, second compartment from the left), with the green/yellow cores. I just compared them a few days ago (picked up a Z1R locally for someone).

    @Damz87 I think we’re talking about the same tips? Not sure what’s with the discrepancy though - maybe I got some stubby tips :joy:

    While we’re at it, the Sony Hybrid EP-EX10A is the best secondary choice I have found and was my favorite IER-Z1R tip at first. Though it adds bass.

    Yes, I’m 100% sure those are Sony Hybrid EP-EX10A tips. Pure gold! They also came with the Sony N3 and Z5 along with the XBA-100.

    Yeah they look like the same ones? Definitely strange that yours are shorter!

    That’s fascinating that Sony actually didn’t introduce new sizes where they still make the full 7 sizes.

    I use the Final E LL for ultra deep fit in my elephant ears :)

    Had been reading the rave reviews here and got myself poisoned when I auditioned this baby at Stereo a couple of weeks ago. I finally made the purchase at V3 today. No regrets. Music has never been so revealing and magical to me before. Thanks guys for sharing.

    I will soon in a few days do a new sound experiment. I will receive a tia trio iem and will intensely compare it with ier-z1r. Using my wm1z and final type e ear tips.
    I am so impatient to hear the results!

    I also ordered double flange spinfits in small size, to do further tests to bring more isolation and see how spinfit silicone work the sound signature.

    So far final type e are the best sounding ear tips in hybrid mode diy with comply foam...

    Its more musical and treble is smoother and more gentle. Bass also is more pleasant. Overall they do an amazing synergy to the sound and very lively lovely

    Yeah, finals are known to reduce (or smoothen if you will) treble a bit (narrow bore), but it's funny to me that you mess with the foam filter to bring up the treble and then use a treble reducing tip leading you to proclaim it to be the best sounding tip. Like using two opposite EQs in series. :)

    Well to be honest I have put back the sony original foam. Shhhhhhht dont tell it to no one hahahaha

    The thing is.
    The oem foam bring treble down and make sound thicker.
    While no foam yes it improves clarity and can hear more details at a cost of elevated treble and thiner sound ....

    That is my findings.
    So original foam + type e with comply foam hybrid is my preferred sound!

    Sony tips bring the z1r deeper and closer in, that make them too bright so type e are longer, it again plays a good way for me that way.
