The foam tips from that seller are all the same type, they just differ in size and quantity, so you'll just need to pick the pack option that suits you better! I bought a pack with the 3 sizes (S,M,L), to see which size would fit me better, and the S is just too small, as I just can use the M  and L sizes. With the EPH-100, I'm currently using the M size, and I'm pretty sure it's the equivalent size to the medium stock bi-flanges (the ones that came pre-fitted) I was using before. The comfort now is just on another new level...  wink.gif

Edit: I could be seeing things, but it looks like your flash caught a glimpse of the driver through the mesh?!

Well, I wasn't using flash, and the pictures where taken with my HTC One X phone! But that's easily visible with if you grab them and angle them in the right way... wink.gif

 

About the tips, they're indeed a great deal! And they tightly fit the EPH-100's nozzle, so they're not going anywhere... About the tip quality, they're better (more comfortable and adaptable to the ear canal) than the stock grey foam tips that come with the GR07, for example! They don't have a rubber core, but this makes them really adaptable and that's why they fit such a wide variety of nozzle sizes!

 

Right now I'm trying the larger ones on my RE-262, and they're also very confortable! Female vocals are just awesome out of RE-262+foam! I was about to order some Comply T-400 for them, but right now I'm having second thoughts. I believe the Comply's are better, for for the price of a 3 pack I can buy I bunch of these cheap foam tips from eBay! biggrin.gif

I was actually given a pair of free foam tips with my recent TF10 cable purchase. After further inspection they're indeed the same medium sized tip which fitted straight onto EPH-100. they were a little awkward to place on but it's them. Unfortunately the medium won't seal in my right ear. I would need large.

Good find mate, there will be no more tip problems.

Have you tried them both straight down and over the ear? The EPH-100 work better for me over the ear...

 

About the tips, they're just too large for the GR07 nozzle size and easily fall off. I think they're also more comfortable than my current top choise for the GR07, the Jays Foams, but to be really sure I needed them to hold on to the GR07 nozzle and do a comparison between them, and they don't! Well, I'll have to keep using the Jays Foams on those... These little gems are great, cheap and comfortable! Isn't that what we all want? beerchug.gif

I tried both way's they won't seal unfortunately, I use large tips on everything, even large hybrids I have problems with. mad.gif. I know how to make those foamies stay on GRO7's nozzle. I have one done right infront of me. What you do is.....take two tips from the GRO7 pack you don't use (say SS) then cut the inner core off the tip placing onto the GRO7 nozzel first. Then the foams slide right on there. wink.gif

P.S Make sure you cut the inner core short enough so it's below the mesh, past the nozzel as to not effect the sound.

I never used the Shure Olives (I'd sure like to try them), but these foam tips from Lostearbuds at eBay are great for comfort and sound quality, and they're pretty cheap! A great option, and I'm currently using the medium size with my EPH-100 and GR07 (many many thanks to H20Fidelity for the tip on how to use them with these) and the large size with my RE-262... wink.gif

 

 

**EDIT**: I googled for some pictures of the Olives, and from I can tell, the Olives have the hard rubber inner-core. Apart from that, they look pretty much the same...

Muchas gracias for your answer, putente!

 

What tip size of the stock silicone tips (S, M, L) of other IEMs has given you the best fit?

None, as I just use foams! They provide the comfort and the type of sound I enjoy! I'm a foam tip believer... biggrin.gif

 

 

Ok, I can say I was using the EPH-100 with the prefitted stock medium bi-flange tips, but I never found them confortable! Now that I have the foams for them, never again... wink.gif

The Olives will never fit on the EPH-100. You have to stretch them with a hot iron just to get them to fit on the GR07. Imagine the EPH-100
