The Shure earphones are the first earphones I've tried we're the earpieces fit in the concha. Unfortunately I experienced horrible pain, turns out I have relatively small ears. So I am trying to avoid styles that are similar, I am thinking getting the etymotic hf5 but I've heard there are better in that price range but many of those have a similar shape to the Shures which I am trying to avoid.

So I brought the B2 but it doesn't seem to be working out for me, I am not a fan of the sound. Would anyone be interested in purchasing a pair of slightly used month old B2s with all accessories (bar the included comply tips) as well as three packs of additional comply tips. All at a reduced price. I am located in Australia, message me if you are interested

Anybody using Etymotic Triple-Flange tips?

 

Today I received 2 pairs of Etymotic tips, but they do not seem to hold on the B2's nozzle well. They are supposed to be the same size and Etymotic triple-flange should fit, but they are loose on B2, and they stay in my ear when I want to take them out. Sound and isolation is good though. Also I noticed the tip hole seem to be larger than on the pictures. I ordered from amazon.co.uk black sea international seller. Anybody having same issues?

There's a simple explanation for that - you didn't get actual etymotic tri-flanges. It happens often - sellers label certain tips as ety, ultimate ears or whatever brand one is searching for and people think they are buying the original tips while in reality they are getting generic replacement tips that might or might not fit and might or might not be close to the real thing. Real ety tips aren't loose on the B2's stem and it's absolutely impossible for them to come off on their own. And the tip hole is in fact pretty small. Here are a couple of pics I just snapped - kinda low quality and blurry but I'm too lazy to redo them and should give you a general idea.

^ I don't have good camera right now, but my tip-holes are definitely larger than yours! ..

 

That's quite outrageous considering that I ordered these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DVVE7AE/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

States: "By Etymotic Research"

I cannot be really sure unless I order directly from Etymotic right?

 

Thanks Kova4a for help.
