FiiO's ear tips have always been acknowledged to be excellent in both the packaging and wearing comfort, and many users expect to get them separately. Here it is. The newly designed silicone ear tips HS18 will be your first choice.

Comfort runs first for ear tips. Thanks to the impressive efforts of the development engineers, the all-new FiiO HS18 silicone ear tips are only 0.4mm thick, making it light and extremely comfortable to wear. Moreover, they are made of high-quality medical grade silicone, highly pure and very transparent, allowing them to have comfortable long-listening sessions.

New ear tips contribute to better sound quality. The HS18 contributes to that goal by adopting a design in which the ear tip’s sound nozzle is the same size as the earphone’s sound tube. Such a design minimizes sound barriers between the earphone and the eardrum, as well as undesirable resonances generated by the ear tip’s nozzle. The result is that fewer anomalies and more of the earphone’s originally intended sound actually reach the listener’s ears.

The HS18 ear tips come in S/M/L sizes. Each package contains 2 sets of S/M/L sizes for a total of 12 individual ear tips. The compatible sound tube size is 5.0mm-6.5mm.

There is sure to be a size that fits you! It's worth mentioning that the HS18 applies to all FiiO in-ear monitors currently on sale!

Key features of the HS18 include:
-- 0.4mm thick outer cover
-- Medical grade silicone

-- Two-shot hot pressing molding
-- 3 sizes
-- Double 3-size pack

I suggest offering the eartips in packs of individual sizes: Small OR Medium OR Large.

Only one size is going to fit correctly. That leaves 4 pairs out of the 6 that are useless unless someone is truly in between sizes.

It's fine if FiiO wants to sell the S-M-L pack as a sampler for buyers who are unsure what they'll need. But I know I need Large -- why should I bother with 4 pairs of extra tips?

100% agree with you, sadly Spinfit tend to do the same thing with some of their tips.

Also if FiiO really cares about environment and Earth it should do that, because selling all sizes means more useless garbage and carbon footprint

Like Final E series tips increase the bass and smoothens the treble. Do these eartips do something like that?
As a general rule of thumb smaller bore tips increase bass and reduce treble, the HS18 tips are supplied with the FiiO FH7S and offer a slightly smoother midrange and vocalsr elative to Spinfit CP145 when fitted to FH7S, CP145 and CP100 tend to be my go to tips in most cases :relaxed:

+1 the other 2 tend to just sit there either waiting to be given away or serve no purpose. Lol
