Plunge Away! Curiosity and lack of sleep overcame rational thought. Picked up a pair and another splitter to burn them and my 9927
Some more. I'll have initial impressions up by Friday or Saturday at the latest.

I got the new black Monoprice, and the stock tips are so wack. I'm not even going to bother reviewing until I can get some foams.

Another video. The sound with these Shure foams are surprisingly good, but not better than with the tip of my first video. The removing of the tube is not easy.

 

 

Info:

1. part: Shure foam + Monoprice = good sound
2. part: another alternative usage of Shure foam; foam+silicone
3. part: just for fun; Monoprice + Silicone + Monster Supertips foams - foam; the sound is ok

Talk about "pimp-my-monoprice". Those $7 iems are getting some love. L3000.gif All you need now is a re-cable and that's monoprice endgame.

+1 that looks great! All you need is to re-cable it with a Twag cable. It's too bad you can't paint those molds.

i havent tried painting it yet,,  i think im going to do one more set of molds. but i have enough molds already done to experiment with a paint that will work..

i just found this from youtube but at its price i think i will pass,,,  my molds cost me less than a dollar to in material and eventhough they dont look that great i thik i would use that money on a set of actual custom earphones..

Or you can buy those earpieces and use monoprice 8323s for the rest of your life. Although you'd have to go through quite a few pairs and not lose the tips along the way for it to be worth it

how about open the housing and close the entire housing with silicone, you can also cut the fin too so it became smaller.

i thought about that,,  but didnt give it much thought..  i would have to take a look at the pics already posted of the housing open...  i have a spare that i can destroy  so i might give it a try..  

 

 

 

ok after looking at the opened earphones this is definately my next step... looks easy enough..

 i'm using these with my klipsch s4i right now! their fantastic! a lot of people were debating between the shure foam (olive tips) and the complys personally here is a quick review on them

 

shure olive

fantastic isolation

good durability ( not as good as silicons which last basically forever unless their tear) a pair lasts me about i think 5-6 months now ( i insert my klipsch maybe 3-4 time a day) on my commute and from school and inbetween classes sometimes

 

a bit gross when you take them out of your ear ( even if you clean your ears a lot) some ear wax comes out and it shows easily cause the sleeve is black

 

comfort is good ( not as comfortable as the complys ( which basically disappear when they are inserted)

 

takes longer to mold into the shape your ear than the complys ( when you squeeze the foam tips when inserting you have to shove it deep in your ear and hold it in that position for about 7 seconds) for it to mold into shape

 

sound its a bit more bassy compare to the complies because of of hard plastic tubing inside

 

a slightly more closed sound stage

 

price vs value i think shure >comply ( i get 5 pairs of sleeves of shure for the price of 3 complys)

 

 

 

 

comply

superb comfort ( nothing in the market is as comfortable as the complys ( once inserted inside your ear) their presence basically disappears and it literally forget you have them on

 

durability- they last me a about 1.5 months, 2 months max (they tear very easily after use)---> deal breaker for me ( i still have 1 pair from my original 3 pairs left)

 

as with the shure its a bit nasty when you take them out of your ear, you always have some earwax even when you think you've cleaned your ears

 

they mold to your ears a lot faster than the shures ( its heat activated, i read from somewhere) once inserted they take 2-3 seconds and they acheive a perfect seal

 

isolation i would say is fair ( i got the comply t100 with the ear wax shield) not as good as the shures but on par with silicons i would say but they are far more comfortable

 

price vs value--> their very expensive and they don't last long... i would not recommend them unless comfort is a very high priority.. 

 

 

bottom line the shures last long, cheaper but not as comfortable ( not uncomfortable, but comply takes comfort to a whole new level)
