Klipsch oval ear tip compatibility or other similar tips?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

How I can tell what other earphones the Klipsch oval ear tips would be compatible with?

 

Are there any other ear tips that are similar to the oval ear design?

 

I love the oval ear tips, in fact it’s really the only in ear design that I can bare.  However I have gone through both a set of s4i and s5i and both broke.  I really would prefer to try something else if the tips are compatible. 

 

Thanks for any help!!

The Klipsch oval gels work great with any of the Etymotic IEMs, as well as most Shure IEMs.  In fact, they're stretchy enough to work with a surprising number of IEMs out there.

I'm thinking about getting some Klipsch tips.  If you don't mind my asking, how did you break them?  I thought silicon tips were pretty durable.

I think the IEMs broke, not the ear tips.... :)

I just bought the Klipsch ProMedia from a friend and they seem to be great so far. 

I haven't tried fitting them on other IEMs, but it would make sense for them to fit Etymotic, Shure, Westone and others with small sound ports. 

The tips are nice — very unique to Klipsch. You could also check out Comply. THey have a round tip, but I have not tried it yet.

Thank you very much.  I am not a Audiophile.  I mainly listen to podcasts.  I am more concerened with reliability and having the mic and volume up / down buttons. The s4i is not sturdy at all.  The cord easily pulls out of the headphone jack with daily use.  The s5i is sturdy but rediculously bulky. So it drives me to look else where.  The s4i reference looks to be perfect however its not out yet :( I wish I knew when it would be out...
