The Final E tips are good. I've used them for quite awhile on various IEMs.I just ordered on amazon a second hand IER-Z1R as I really want to know if rather good IEMs (less than 2K$) can reach the sound quality of my Headphones by Heddp or Z7M2. They are both making ears too "hot" and sweaty after a few hours.
As it won't buy it new, I would like to buy some new tips, so I am wondering if there are any better after market tips for the Sony IER-Z1R?
Is it worth to give a try to another made than Sony, as I suppose sound can be significantly impacted by the tips, but I want comfortable one that I can use more than 3 hours. I can't use memory foam tips (melonia 1 and Airpods Pro), as my ears canals get far too irritated at the end of a single day.
What can be improved with other made ?.
Basically, I don't really like Sony as a brand, but I must admit that little by little I am using mostly, with great pleasure, the WM1A (MrWalkman Z++ firmware) and the Z7M2 at the office (More than Hiby R6Pro/Fiio M11/Cambridge audio Melonia 1/Apple Airpods Pro).
So, these last months, I have some doubt using other brands for Hires sound matter. But I think I have read somewhere that some brand was making really good and comfortable silicone tips
Recently, the Xelastec is my favorite. Be aware that these need a smaller size. Where I always used the Final E LL size, I found that the ML is what worked for the Xelastec.
