I've always had trouble getting a seal in my right ear with IEMs. With stock silicone tips, I have to use the largest size - and even then the right ear will barely ever seal. My left ear seals effortlessly, but I have to pull my right ear away from my head and then mess with it for awhile to get a seal, only to have it pop out every fifteen minutes or so.
I heard that Comply foam tips would be a foolproof solution for my problem, so I bought a three pack of large tips. But I'm still having problems with getting a seal in my right ear. I can get it to seal if I insert the foam deep into my ear and then rotate until it's in really tight - but this gives me a constant uncomfortable feeling of pressure in the ear.
Is it normal to have that feeling constantly while wearing foam tips? This actually causes me pain, which doesn't seem normal. I've worn my silicone tips for 10 hours a day over the last few years and barely ever noticed that I was wearing anything.
Could I be using the wrong size? Weirdly, I think I have two different size ear canals - I can only get the tips to insert halfway in the left side, whereas it goes all the way in to the right. I just assumed that if I wore the largest in silicone tips, the same would apply to foam.
Also, I've noticed a decrease in isolation vs the stock silicone tips. From everything I've read, I thought Comply foam tips were supposed to increase isolation. What gives?
