I got my PL50 today. I have trouble with getting them to fit good though. The problem is that I am unable to get a good seal with any of the different sized silicone tips. The sound is really thinny and they aren't that comfortable either. Before these, I used a pair of CX300, and with those there was no problem for me to get a good seal.
Is there any secret trick with the PL50's to get them to fit good? Am I supposed to put the silicone tips all the way down the nozzle, or just half the way?
With the foam tips that was on them they sound decent, but I would prefer to use the silicone tips. I only got one pair of foam tips and some strange bi-flanges that are too big to fit the PL50's nozzle..
I recently purchased a set of Sony Hybrid tips at Best Buy (on Joker's recommendation). The fit/seal far better than any of the stock tips, and seal and sound better than the Shure silicone tips that I tried.
Also, it was absolutely crucial for me to equalize the PL50 on my Fuze. No way around it for me. However, once they are equalized correctly (using a pink noise file), they really do sound fantastic to my ears. Some may think this is not worth it, or even scoff at the thought of using eq-ing, but, IMO, it turns these IEMs into something that's not just tolerable, but (absolutely) well worth the investment.
