Have a pair of Etymotic HF3s and have the following observations regarding the tips:
- The triple flange eartips don't work for me at all, even the smaller ones. The left ear is fine, the right won't go in far enough to get a seal.
- The foam tips work well but aren't very comfortable.
- The "glider" tips work well and provide excellent isolation but seem to come apart after a few insertion/removal cycles. I don't want to be leaving a piece behind in my ear at some point.
Comply foam tips seem to be working well but, like most of the tips are "fussy" to get right. If they aren't totally in (and I mean ONE HUNDRED PERCENT), isolation suffers significantly. Just wondering if anyone here had had custom tips made and what the results were. Hoping they might solve the "fussiness" problem. Thanks!
