    @DigMe @gixxerwimp What size symbios did you guys order? I'm using the larger stock tips right now.

    I'm using the mediums. I think I was using large stock tips.

    Stock med. Symbio med, but they're a touch too big. Small are too small.

    Guess M/S would be perfect, but they don't make one.

    Might be possible to trim the memory foam a bit. I'll try that and report back.

    Yeah the Symbio’s def seem a little on the fat side but the mediums work for me.

    So I flipped the silicone part of the tips inside out and trimmed a bit of the memory foam. This makes them a bit "slimmer" and might help if your fit is a touch too tight. The darker part of the tip around the nozzle is fairly firm, so I think there's a limit to how much difference trimming the foam will make. The foam is glued to the inside of the firm thick ring of the silicone nozzle. I don't think trimming more in this area will change the fit much.

    Drop for the Noble X "Wizard Edition" now.

    Anyone know if the tuning has changed?

    I think its just a fancier shell for the exterior instead normal build.

    ^Correct, same tuning...another option for a fancy X.
    The bodies are polished, which is pretty nice and the faceplate is a bit more "svelte" for a smaller overall form factor.
    There is some glassy/marble/crystal depth to the faceplates.
    Plus an engraved "wizard" sig.
    If successful, may do some different looks.
