When a brand sends you their entire line of products to review in one shot, they must be good…
SpinFit have very generously sent me this collection of ear tips to review.
I have not been paid or sponsored to write this.
The thoughts and views in this publication are my own honest and unbiased opinion.
Prices vary. I would list them here, however seeing as it’s their entire catalogue I don’t want you having to read the entire list before you get to the review.
Saying that, I haven’t come across a pack that was any more than £20.
You can find and purchase SpinFit tips in most countries on Amazon.

What’s in the box:
Ear tips. Lots of them!
However, in your case you will get a blister pack with your chosen ear tips and any adaptors inside.
Premium soft silicone.
Build and finish:
“SpinFit has an ergonomic concave design at the core to allow the ear tip to swivel, making it flexible to bend and twist to the contour of a person’s ear canal.”
“Premium soft silicone material along with the ergonomic design provides outstanding and lasting comfort.”
“Consistent optimal seal even for headphones with an awkward insertion angle, allowing increased noise isolation.”
“Enhancement on treble and bass ensures a superior listening experience to the foam and the stock ear tips.”
“Simple installation makes SpinFit an easy upgrade for your earphone. A perfect replacement for your stock ear tips.”
I agree with every point.
Once I found the right size fit for my ears ( SpinFit supply different sizes of each tip ) I can safely say that all of the above is true for each model.
The ear tips and adaptors are built to a very good standard and I found no rough edges or burs on any of the silicone or plastic.
Even Apple Airpod Pro users are covered by SpinFit.
The packaging is a simple blister pack and that’s just fine. However I do hope in the future SpinFit and other brands switch to either plant based “plastic” or maybe a small cardboard box? I tried contacting SpinFit to find out more about the packaging but received no reply.
Installation is very straightforward and easy.
SpinFit even include a little pictorial guide on their website to help fit ear tips with adaptors.
The Apple Airpod Pro tips for example, come with plastic ring adaptors, these are easy to fit and work very well.
You can find a pictorial guide at the bottom of the page here:
The silicone SpinFit use is very soft and comfortable in the ear.
However if you don’t get the right fit you will find that the smoothness of the silicone will mean IEMs falling out of ears, a lot. Frustratingly so.
Get the right fit and they stay in place with no difficulty.
Dependent on IEM, I found I was able to wear most of the models I used in this review from anywhere between two and four hours. This variance is related more to the IEMs specific quirks than the tips. If all IEMs were created equal and on par with the comfiest pair then I would say 4 hours upwards easy.
In my experience over the years, I have found that using different material and designs of ear pads and ear tips can make a difference in what I hear.
The same is to be said for fitment. Considerably.
SpinFits claim of enhanced treble and bass is accurate. I noticed this more on IEMs that have a more “V” curved sound signature.
I also noticed that midrange was a little rolled off in some cases and need to make a few tweaks in EQ to bring the mids back to a level that I prefer.
Soundstage doesn’t change in my view, although reviewers with better hearing than I may notice a small difference.
Isolation, especially in the models without active noise cancelling is good.
I noticed with the Grado GT220 and HIFIMAN TWS600 that the passive noise cancelling was improved when using these tips.
Thoughts and recommendation:
I really like what SpinFit have created.
I have always struggled with ear tips in the past, whether that be comfort or getting the right fit. I always saw ear tips as my weak link in my IEM usage.
SpinFit have changed that by offering an ear tip that makes fitment a lot easier.
Would I recommend them? Absolutely. Improved comfort, enhanced sound signature and increased isolation / passive noise cancelling all for £20 or under!
I’ll definitely be looking to SpinFit in the future for more ear tips.
