I don't think Sony ever applied a patent on their hybrid eartips, so there isn't any question regarding legality.

post #157 of 384

it's been more than a week im using the pl50 with the M silicone tips.

i donno why but i get the feeling the isolation got worse, quite worse. what should be the reason?

did the tips got softer and just dont block the noise? or something else? and how can i fix it?

Well, silicone eartips do absorb skill oil / earwax and get softer with time (a.k.a. break-in). No sure if that's your case though. Maybe you didn't quite get the best fit?

from all the tips , those are the only that really fit my ears, isolate and dont pop out. i think its the same fit i got at the beginning . truth is , that at first i got more pressure in my ears, and now dont even feel the tips. but the isolation the first days was much better , even in quite noisy places

 

i doubt they already broke-in with only 1+ week of use , about 2-3 hours a day. and doubt even more that my ears got differentblink.gif

Ety tri-flange tends to be just a little harder, but overall the difference is very small and you probably can't tell it if you are not compareing them side by side.

Then you should get the one that said it is compatible with Ety, Westone or Shure.

Anyone have a recommendation for a good bi-flange that will work with my Turbine Coppers(and where to get them)? For reference, Sony Hybrid mediums and smalls(but not the extra smalls) work best for me. I want as much isolation as I can get, but have issues keeping a seal with the various Super Tips, and tri-flanges(both larger and smaller ones) sort of "bottom out" on my ears.

MEElec bi-flange should fit, and they are of good quality.
