Wow, I had no idea. I just took my pfe112 comply tips (t-130) and I didn't realize they could go so deep. They are really tight on the earphones, so hopefully I can get them out ;) haha, but they squished down tight and went in deeper than I expected. So far I'd say the sound is ironically very similar to the pfe112. I'll have to listen more, but it has excellent isolation and bass so far, but things sound just a tad "swishy". But then they do that with the pfe112 compared to the silicon as well. Even though they flatten things out there's something swishy about them to me in the highest treble. maybe I'm just not used to hearing drums at certain frequencies. No other areas seem hurt by it, but drums just sound swishy in a weird way. Not compressed, even with lossless files, more the frequencies. Like I'm hearing a boost in the 10khz or something...
EDIT: Another thing I'm noticing is that they absolutely sound more coherent in soundscape with the foam. The separation from left to right seems smoother and wider... THAT, I like.
