I have a pair of silicone UM56's coupled with my UM3X IEMs. I love them but they do not fit very tight. Sometimes the the tips stay in my ear when I pull the IEMs, which is no big deal because of the swizzle stick, but twice one has fallen off as I was putting them in. Luckily I found the dropped tip both times but I fear that my luck will run out someday. Any ideas on how I can tighten them? I was thinking a tiny drop of bathroom silicone at the base where the earpiece hits the IEM might be enough to hold them on yet still allow them to be removed when needed.
At last,I received my UM56s from Variphone Belgium, and tried to fit them,but I think they are too big for my ears,especially the left one,and I can't put them in my ears,fitted on the UM3X ,but I have to put them in alone, first,and then to put the UM56 on them.
Also,when I try to pull the UM56 off,the force which I have to put,is so big,that I am afraid that the little string which helps to unplug them,will be cut.
The same with the putting them off.I have first pull the earphones,and then to take the UM56 off.
I think that it is not the ususal way to wear this UM3X-UM56 combo.
While mine slides off, it should not be loose like that. You need to send it back. It should fit snuggly and should cut out most of the noise around you. Actually, silicon makes it so it is just north of being so you can't hear anything unless if they yell or something crazy. Silicon will provide the best isolation out of any tips going into your ear, especially custom such as the UM56.
