SpinFit Eartips Guide

SpinFit eartips have been one of our favorites here since first trying out a pair that was bundled with the DUNU Luna. The main appeal is that they have the comfortability of silicone tips, but provide a better seal than the average silicone tip due to their namesake patented swivel technology. Basically, there is a joint near the top of the eartip (the part inserted into your ear) which enables it to bend and conform more completely to the shape of your inner ear.

SpinFit Patented Technology

We recently started carrying SpinFit eartips at Bloom Audio, and they offer a large line of eartips with some subtle differences between each which can be a little confusing at times. To help you figure out which model will work for your, here’s a quick guide to help you figure out which SpinFit tips go best with your IEMs.

Fit Guide

The big difference in most of the models is the size of the bore for the IEM nozzle. Generally you want a tip that’s easy to get on, but not TOO easy to make sure that you have a tight secure fit. The more secure the fit, the better your isolation will be, but if you go with something that’s too snug you’ll risk damaging the eartips when you take them on or off.

Let’s look at the different SpinFit models, and compare how they fit on a selection of IEMs. Note that the sizing within each model (Small, Medium, Large) only affects the width of the flange and how that fits your ear, and does not affect the size of the bore or how well they will fit on different IEMs.

CP100

The CP100 has a 4mm opening and is the all-around, works with just about anything tip. It’s small enough to work with IEMs with smaller nozzles, like those on 64 Audio’s line of IEMs, but still big enough to stretch onto Noble or Empire Ears wider nozzles. The challenge is that with bigger models, you’ll generally want a little more room to work with, rather than having to fight to get the tips on and off, and potentially damage them.

The CP100 provides an easy fit on an IEM with smaller to medium sized nozzle like 64 Audio’s Universal fit offerings.

CP145

The CP145 is just a hair larger than the CP100 at 4.5mm, and is otherwise nearly identical. If you primarily use IEMs with larger eartips but want some flexibility to use them with smaller nozzles, the CP145 will still fit securely on most models while being more accommodating of the wider nozzled IEMs. While the CP100 fits on the Empire Ears line of IEMs, it generally is a little tough to get on, while the CP155 and CP500 don’t provide a snug fit. The CP145 came in just in between with a perfect fit.

CP155 and CP500

The CP155 and CP500 both have 5.5mm nozzles and are designed for IEMs with large nozzles. They’ll create an easy but snug fit on models from Noble or Campfire Audio, as well as hybrid in-ear headphone designs like the Audeze iSINE10 and LCD-i series. The CP155 features a bit of extra extension with a taper at the tip to help provide a good seal with wider nozzles even if you have smaller ear canals, while the CP500 has an internal ridge to help it lock into place more firmly.

The CP500’s internal ridge helps it lock perfectly onto Campfire’s IEMs.

CP800

The CP800 is designed specifically for very small nozzles. They’re a tight squeeze on brands like 64 Audio with nozzles on the small side of medium, and are not recommended for use with larger nozzles.

The CP100 also fit on the 64 Audio Nio, but the CP800 provides a firmer and tighter fit.

CP240

The CP240 is a double flange eartip. Double flange eartips are useful for listeners who have larger ear canals and have a hard time getting a good seal. They can also provide improved isolation in general. On the CP240, the SpinFit pivot comes in between the first and second flange, to provide flexibility at the top for the second flange.

The CP240 has a wide bore and fits comfortably on larger nozzles, but it also comes with a selection of adapters that allow it to fit snugly on smaller nozzles as well.
