They snaped apart...I think some cellotape and glue can fix it...
I have tried the stock tips, Shure yellow foamies, and the tips mod you suggested just now, and I like your tips mod.
- I think I am spoiled by the stock tips...I am ready to sacrifice details and treble just for the dynamics, liquid smooth and very natural sound. Stock tips don't offer good clarity, midrange is veiled, but I like how the drums hit the most with stock tips. Stock tips give me the warmest sound.
- Shure yellow foamies do give good clarity and treble quantity, however, the sound is like all messed up. Instrument separation and 3D presentation is bad compared to stock tips. No dynamics, or big sound. Everything seem to become thin compared to stock tips.
- Your tips mod: I am hoping that custom sleeves can give me the best from world (stock tips and Shure yellow foamies). It seems that your tips mod is able to give me dynamics and and treble quantity, as well as clarity, compared to the stock tips, but not suffering much from sounding thin or 'small'. This is kind of a premature conclusion, as I have only tested them for less than 5 minutes...
EDIT: @average_joe, you should try @dfkt's tips mod :)
