    That's a good sign. For my ears, the Tia fourte and Andromeda (and Rhapsodio Galaxy v2) require foam tips to sound their best.

    Have you tried Symbio eartips? It's the best of both worlds, memory foam on inside, silicone on outside. Those only sold on ebay, btw. Come in wide and standard models, each one in S/M/L. Actually, fits IE800S quite well, grips its short nozzle secure.

    Anyone with a pair or knowledge that can confirm whether the Y splitter cable part is 2.5mm or 3.5mm?

    The original ie800 was 2.5mm. Just wondering if that changed.

    Still 2.5

    I see, thanks. The picture made it look like its 3.5mm now, quite deceiving.

    Are those normal bore for the IE800s?

    Anyone know what comply tips come with the ie800s? I can't seem to find the actual version number anywhere.

    Yes, the Normal one. Better grip with a nozzle.

    I think he meant it as being a little deceiveing from the picture, 2.5mm looking as big as 3.5mm :)

    I shared these before, the Y-splitter one is 2.5mm TRRS (zoomed in a picture). It has to be terminated balanced in order to go from Balanced to Balanced (2.5mm to 2.5mm or 2.5mm to 4.4mm), and you can also go from Balanced to Single Ended, but not the other way around.

    Foams aren't for everyone, I never got a good fit with neither comply nor the others

    On the IE800S I wouldn’t want the complys sucking up the awesome highs.

    That's just it, the otherwise excellent tia fourte needs foams to attenuate the treble issues. I want an earphone that asks you to hear all the treble it has to offer.
