Got mine directly from Kinera last Friday. FYI, they are BRIGHT and I mean it. On top of that they are too sensitive for my phone, which leads to excessive floor noise (which is weird because I have no such problems with Fidelio X2 plugged in). With Clip+ situation improves but you still need to run custom EQ to fix their brightness a little.
Make sure that you have proper DAP to drive them.
I found that lengthy run-in fixed the "bright" factor on mine.
Same with the Rose pair I'm trying out.
Yeah, I've also swapped tips from grey ones to regular silicone ones. It helped improve the seal, since with grey ones on I couldn't get a good seal on my right ear. I'll probably consider getting comply T/TX-200 tips to further improve isolation.
For those wondering about grey tips, most of the reviews mention only regular silicon tips in 3 different sizes. Mines ordered in last week of October came with those regular tips and a set of grey/semi transparent ones which matched the color of the housing (red in my case). They are stiffer than the regular ones and as I mentioned earlier, they don't seem to provide a good seal upon insertion (YMMV).
Gonna try this as well, hope it tones down a little bit.
