I don't know about the 5s but the 3s require a perfect seal for them to produce acceptable bass. They are problematic that way because the seal always requires maintaining by simply pushing the phones back in the ear canal 1mm or so. They tend to migrate out, even though they feel sealed, and loss bass.
UE needs to rework these phones for a better fit. Or provide longer single flange seals. I tried almost every seal I have in my inventory to gain a reliable seal to the ear, one that doesn't need continuous pressing in, kind of like a person correcting their eye glasses. I settled on some large Creative Labs Aurvana seals. Even they migrate out 1mm or so after a while. You'd think with the cost of these types of canalphones, the industry would be able to come up with a reliable seal for a phone like this UE 3. You'd also think UE would see the need for various types, sizes and depths of seals for their strangely shaped phones. All mine need are maybe a 2mm deeper half football shaped seal. The shape of the Aurvana seal is just right but it isn't deep enough.
Looking at the Shure SE 300 series phones, they look like they would be the best fitting, for me, anyway. The stem isn't abrupt like the UE3 but, rather, gradual and can go into the ear canal deeper. The UE3 is shaped to stop at a certain depth...the length of the seal. Also, you'd think the industry could come up with one of these seals that have ridges around it to grip the ear.
Strange, strange, strange how the industry cannot even fathom some simple things like I've just thought about. Who knows, they probably have thought about my ideas and more but, for whatever reason, chose not to introduce them.
