suggest, well id try large shure olives if i was you.
(foam tips from shure, look like black olives)
Had my PL50 for over a year now. Bought them for $25 used here in the forums. Probably the best money I've spent in audio.
These have been my main IEM for the past 6 months or so. In the past, I've owned exactly 50 different IEMs and finally settled on the RE-400. I eventually came back around to the PL50 and soon ditched my lovely RE-400, mainly due to me liking the ergonomics/comfort more (prefer over-ear). Although as of late, I've been very determined to find an upgrade, but am worried nothing will match it's fit and comfort. As of now, I'm looking in the direction of Shure's SE lineup, but am seeing mixed reviews regarding the comfort and bulky cable connector. Westone can be an option too, but was very disappointed by the W3 and W4. So now I'm a bit lost. If anyone has suggestions of an IEM that keeps this type of mid-centric sound, while having a comfortable, over-ear fit... please let me know! Until then, may the PL50 rain supreme in my IEM collection.
Also, has anyone attempted to paint IEMs? I think the sparkly blue with red stress relief is horribly ugly.
Hi! Still fighting with PL50s! And Im not give up! Had Vsonic sds, good sound, but suddenly left channel stoped working!?! So pulled out PL50s!! Bought Shure olives big tips, but sounded baaad, but good fit and comfort. Best sound comes from PLs supplied big sillicone tips, and make PLs shine, but while walking, they slightly droping out of my ears. Very enoying. So every 20 seconds i have to push them back to my ears. Is there any cheap silicone tips to use with my only headphones left?!?! Sorry on my bad, bad English!!!
Wow, I really liked the olives when I had them. Maybe you're pinching them as the large are pretty big. In any case, try taking out a few db around 2.3kHZ if you can do that on your player.
gosh, im surprised at having problems with the olives, maybe the big ones are much too big for you and so the open nozzle is getting pushed closed. that might explain why they are sounding bad. for other tips id be inclined to say, try the other tips form shure but if the olives are giving you problems, maybe try some comply's?
