+1  For me, ANC is literally messing with my mind.  My brain knows those frequencies should be there, but my ears aren't hearing it. 

 

Frankly I don't understand the appeal of cancellation over isolation.  If people are really that ape**** about silence - and they're willing to spend that kind of money - then a pair of customs ought to do the job.  And if they're really fanatical, they should just pick up a pair of Howard Leights and get it over with.

Comply Foam tips for the win...

 

With them, I cannot get enough of my Etys.

Yeah, even with the small triple flanges they were uncomfortable.  I think foam might be the only way to go...

Not at all... Insert them just deep enough to get a seal, they are comfortable as ever.  Also make sure you insert them correctly.  Or get a pair of foam tips.

I always inserted them until I could poke my brain... ;)

That's why you found them uncomfortable.  You don't want to poke your brain, you just want the seal :p
