Silicone sleeve for Shures question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

 

I have a question regarding alternative sleeves for Shure earphones, specifically in this case the SE530. It's something that's been mildly bugging me since the E5 days, but long-term use of triple flanges particularly in my Ety days left my ears really irritated, and my lugholes have a mild to extreme dislike of:

 

- Comply tips

- The Shure black foams

- The new-style Ety gliders

- The Shure yellow foams

- The Ety black foams

- Any silicone flanged tips

 

 

The problem is that the Shures, as my commute phones, get pulled out far more often than e.g. my UE11's, and my ear canals end up feeling pretty raw with anything but the Shure olives. But the olives are lacking in one of the key points of the IEM's, isolation. I have however found the material used in the sleeves of the Nokia WH-205 more tolerable, as well as potentially offering better isolation due to the high overlap of the sleeve, and I was wondering if any variants on this theme existed for the Shures.

Try making your own with earplugs. Shame that Monster SuperTips don't fit.
