What would you guys recomend for the HF5? Complys, Shure's olives, or the new etymotic gliders? i already own the olives, but was thinking of getting either the gliders or Complys.

If you PM your address I'll send you an unused set of gliders. I don't care for them so there just going to waste sitting here. As for Comply I have no experience.

the comply's will likely be worse than the olives, so i wouldn't bother there. from personal experience with the two.

The supplied triple flanges.

I use the gliders...they isolate better and are way more comfortable than the stock tips...YMMV though

Thanks, will do. Just got the HF5 and I'm trying different tips. The clarity is amazing but they do not provide the most comfortable tips.

well, i did not find that true. i bought hf5 because i liked (but lost) my ER-4Ps with triflanges. I love those grey triples, the seal instantly and are quite comfortable to my ears, even for longer periods of time.

i can't stand the supplied black foam things, they are annoying as hell for me.

though, shure olives (i went with size M) are good as well, somehow nicer than the grey  glider tips. I received a pack today and they are more comfortable than the sturdier triflanges, but don't seal instantly and need a little bit more adjusting.

there is a mod described for etymotic standard triflanges with shure olives, which i use at the moment and its the best of both worlds for me. sealing comes faster and i feel like i lost my hearing until music kicks in.

baby blue triflange. somehow i feel that using a triflange is the only way to justify a etymotic purchase (as well as get good fit and isolation)!

For me everything it came with was not usable including gliders. I never tried olives. I was actually thinking of selling this headphone cause it was so uncomfortable with any of them. Until I tried the Comply foam. Isolation and comfort is superior to the stock ones. I still feel them in my ears, but they don't bother me much. They are much softer and more comfortable.
