    That may not help as much as you'd hope- aren't Rockets out of production now- so no direct replacement?

    (Also, I use large Spiral Dots on my Noble-X too, seems to work OK. I also had some luck with medium Spinfits- and am going to give the double flange Spinfits a go too)

    Turns out I'm an idiot, in case any of you were wondering. I was having so much trouble finding the right tips so that they would seal properly in my left ear. My last attempt was to try and get a range of Spiral Dots to try. Due to some idiocy, I have an open box of MS and unopened boxes of S, MS and L. The MS didn't work, and I have no M to try because I had a total brain fart when ordering (the 2 boxes of MS are the result of another SNAFU). After yelling at myself for being such an idiot (I also wanted to try the M with my Andros), I went through the stock tips again and it turns out the medium silicone works for me :confused:. The seal is OK, especially if I rotate the shells backwards as far as possible. They feel like they're about to fall out, but stay in fairly well and need only a light push if I've moved my jaw a lot.

    Still need some bass lift and mid/lower-treble tweaking with EQ to get what I consider a neutral response, but now I can use them without having to resort to Complys. Yeah!

    Sorry for the noise, but the end result is I have the above mentioned Spiral Dots that I'm going to put up for trade for:
    • Spiral Dot M and/or ML (new or used, I don't care - just want to try them)
    • stock Noble X silicone mediums
    • or a donation of US$10 to SBAF for an unopened box (S, MS or L), US$5 for 4 unused MS from the opened box
    I'm leaving on vacation for 2 weeks in a couple of days so I won't be able to send them out right away, but PM me and I'll take care of it when I return. I'll post this in the The Earphone Tip Exchange thread as well.

    My new Noble in-line microphone and volume control cable ($80) is busted after two months of use. The volume control wasn't functioning properly for about two weeks, then the left channel went out. Would not recommend.
