Ohhhh black tip.....
and that's weird, because my L plugs came with dozens of tips :O (but I did buy them directly in china.....could differ from retailer to retailer, I guess)
I thought you meant the colored tip....
Those IMO are a pain in the a** to put on, but once they are on, they're incredibly sturdy (I'm using the light blue colored tup w/ foam hybrid tips...IMO they bring the best warmth so I just use them...)
And speaking of tips (if anyone finds this useful...) I came home and tried a bunch of tips today and I'm just posting my results:
Stock double flange: OK isolation and mostly warm SQ with bass, highs and mids pretty equal.
Black "open" tips: No isolation (in all sizes): mediocre quality compared to others, and don't stay in my ears (all sizes )
Black Olive Silicon tips (non hybrid): OK isolation, incredibly warm SQ (mostly balanced with slight emphasis on bass)
Black Olive Silicon tips (Hybrid w/ foam sony copy ): Almost the same as non foam, except slightly tangier and tighter bass (works best for all genres IMO ) [[Recommended]]
Meelec single flange tips: Ok isolation, Ok SQ compared to the others
Meelec double flange: Pretty much the same as stock double flange except they are more comfortable in my ears and offer better isolation [[Recommended]]
Meelec triple flange: Amazing isolation (it feels like the music is playing in my head :O), but at the cost of a somewhat neutral sound (no emphasis on anything, but music does not sound flat either...
It Could Be Sweet - Portishead (for bass)
Angel - Massive Attack (for bass)
Paranoid Android - Radiohead (for balance)
Doomsday Afternoon - Phideaux (for balance)
Heroes - David Bowie (for mids)
Space Oddity - David Bowie (for testing uncompressed/non-remasterd classics)
Echoes - Pink Floyd (....for being....echoes)
