Good machinaries is all needed to fix the nice flexible stem inside the foam professionally , and the fine tuned shape of foam. nothing else there special. may be the density of comply foam is thicker than 3M,spark etc those available in drug stores and amazon.
I actually prefer the DIY. I have a few comply tips that are just sitting there because the DIY ones are more comfortable, give me better isolation and better SQ

Thank you for posting this DIY foam tip tutorial! My MEElectronics M6s happened to match earplugs I had lying around (colorwise, lol). Apologies for the ghetto photography, I wanted to post my appreciation right away.

 

The isolation boosts the bass immensely. I had resigned to using the large triple flange tips and pushing in the earpiece in every 15 minutes, but no more! These finally sound the way they're supposed to.

 

Tip for those attempting this: push in the awl/hole maker on the rounded side first. If you pierce the foam from the flat side with the rounded end coming out of the end, the opening when you put on your earpiece won't look as nice. Also, to make the hole bigger, compress the foam to a disc shape while the awl/hole maker is in and then pull to widen hole. If you make a hole that's too small and then try to yank it down, you will tear the foam. 

 

This was an easy mod to do, and if you mess up it's cheap to try again. Highly recommended DIY to try before buying Complys.

Interesting. Does anyone have tips for doing this on the gr07? Every time I try it never works -- the foam tips are always too big. How can I slim them down?

Working pretty nicely on my beater DBA02s, thanks OP. Not much bass but decent otherwise.
