To check your earphone compatibility please refer to the chart below. However, if your earphone is not listed below, and the speaker stem's diameter is between 4.5mm to 6.5mm, they will also fit.
 

I saw a very interesting video clip as to why the Complys possibly limit the treble and muffle the bass. You can view it here:

It makes some very interesting points.

 

I found these on Amazon, which are memory foam tips, listed as "by mobeast" and they list the S4 as compatible. On the other hand, while the S4 uses Comply TX-100s, the mobeast list on Amazon also includes some Senns that Comply says fit TX-400s, so maybe they are making stuff up. The S4 stem is TINY-more like 2 mm.

 

Thanks for that video, the technique they show really helped! Probably will try out some Mobeasts anyway, they are only 8 bucks for all 3 sizes to try.

I am using the Comply foam tips on my UM3X IEMs. The ones I am using do not have the filters in them. I have found that they work very well. They are excellent in establishing a good seal which is essential for good bass response on the IEMs. This is my first experience with the tips. I ordered them from the Comply website. The only issue I encountered was that the shipment did take a week longer than posted by USPS. Likely not Comply's fault considering it was close to
Christmas and everything slows down.

I would highly recommend the tips and that you order the evaluation package for the tips which comes in the three different sizes for the tips. Try the tips progressing from the smallest to the large until you find those that provide the best seal for you. Once you have the size you can order just that size from Comply. I can not enforce strongly enough that a good seal is essential for good response so work with the tips and try the multiple sizes. You will be amazed once you get the correct fit on how good the monitors will sound and the comfort that you have while wearing them.

Thanks for your post. Based on what you've said I've decided to give the Comply's another go and there are two reasons for this:

 

1 I ordered my first set from a supplier in Singapore - maybe they weren't genuine. This time I've ordered directly from Comply, the postage is steep but WTF

 

2 Maybe I got the wrong size so I've ordered a mixed set.

 

I've also gone for the TsX500s (I got Tx last time). They've got a different shape and make less contact with the ear canal which might solve the itching problem. I'll know in a couple of weeks and will report back.

IME, the foam tips will reduce treble by a small margin and also reduce bass. The silicon tip acts as the surround on a speaker and increases bass output vs the foam tips which absorb the energy. It's not a huge difference, but is there.

This hasn't been my experience.    Due to the superior isolation, the Complys will typically enhance the bass, not reduce it.    With the T and TX series, they do have a tendency to reduce treble a bit, but with the TS series, this issue is mitigated to a large extent.
