How often do you replace comply tips (if at all)?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Just got the Tx500 and was wondering if I should use one pair until it falls apart, or replace it every week.

I replace mine every 2 weeks. I am using P-tip packed by Westone (11USD for 3 Pair) c

Honestly, my next tips will be home-made mods based on a pack of foam earplugs from Walmart. You can't beat the cost and I get to make it the way I like it.

replace? never

used the fist set i had for about 3 days and they started going yellow even with cleaning my ears at least once a day so i stopped using them. im not going to be constantly replacing them at the rate of one a week, so i never use them

and thats exactly what I don't like about complys. Why on earth make them light grey? They are so incredibly comfortable but I put some on my JVC FX-66's and they were grubby in a few days even with taking care such as washing my hands before rolling the foam etc.

use until they start to fall apart--usually one/.two months but I'm listening only about two hours' nightly

Well I could think of 2 reasons

1. Easier to know that they are getting dirty and time for it to get replaced
2. Easier to get them dirty so we'd buy more

when i use to use them with my Triple.fi, 10-12 days, and i would replace them becuase they ripped, not becuase they were dirty,

i´ve allready shown my dislike of comply on several threads, its basicly like paying rent on your IEM´s, if they were 5 bucks for 3-5 pairs, ok, but at 3-4 bucks a pair shipped, and a 10 day lifespan, no thanks,
