Can send 1pr to Indonesia if you're up for it. Just in an ordinary airmail letter, nothing fancy.
i love it when an english pronounce "nothing fancy".... Sean Connery in mind....

Wow, u r one nice fellow. If using airmail its not certain when its going to reach me..... I might be somewhere else, like Malaysia. So i ll pass. Realy thanks. I'm sure someone else will pm you for that free foam by the time they read this... hehe

Maybe you can compare them with stock FS foam, the smaller one. If you have atrios. Anyone?

Sure, I can be of some help.

The smaller foams are actually considered small by Future Sonics. There is no medium, just small and large. Medium Olives are much bigger than the small foamies included with the Atrio's, and I think even the small Olives may be bigger as well.

To be honest, I hated the Olives. I don't know whether my skin is simply allergic to the material that composes them or what, but they were always uncomfortable over lengthy periods within my ear canal no matter how small of a size I was using.

I think you guys should include SOny green Hybrids in the showdown! Some people prefer these over the olives & COmply!

plan to get some olive, but not sure which size should i go for. I am used to Comply Tx series, medium is too loose for me and only can use large. Should i get large olive too?

The sizings don't differ by much. But the safe bet for you would be the medium ones. I used medium Complys and they did fit quite well but the softness made them feel like a weak fit, like it wasn't able to hold on to my ears. With small Olives, it's been a pleasure. But the Olives could get irritating after prolonged use. When your ears got sweaty, the Olives could get quite sticky, it's quite irritating.
