    I'm finding this too. I'm using their included double flange but the quality doesn't seem great and already they're losing their seal at the cost of bass. Single flange included and spiral dots shelve the treble to my ears and make the sound murkier. Same with foam.

    Any suggestions for aftermarket (amazon available) dual flange silicone tips?

    Edit: These are more tip dependent than any IEMs I can remember.

    Any update on this? Will you notify owners when available?

    I don't know about any of the aftermarket tips on Amazon but these from Mee should work http://www.meeaudio.com/TS3-DF-50-BK/
    I can't tell for sure if they are the widest bore of the Mee Audio duals, so maybe contact Mee Audio before ordering. They are usually quick to respond.

    Just purchased these as my first pair of serious IEMs. I've been using them with the dual-flange tips and an old samsung s5 since I read somewhere its OI is around 1 and my s7 is 5.5 (yikes..not a fan of that) and I'm seriously impressed with how close these get to my desktop rig(HD650K, MCTH).. cant imagine what a proper DAP and higher-end IEMs could do. My commutes just got a lot better!

    So a week or so in an I'm finding the real weakness of these is sound stage - both size and accuracy. I don't find that they ever create a stage in front of me or ever give the illusion that I'm not listening to IEMs. It's very much an in ear, almost 2D sound somewhat similar to my memory of the FIBASS. Some of that may be that they lack the last bit of treble air to provide spatial cues.

    Note that the main comparison are the W900s which have a great stage - in both size and accuracy.
