Above is my post on page 38. As you can see it wraps all the way around for a secure fit onto the BE5. I have to have these connected in order for them to stay more than 5 minutes on my ear. I love that it redirects the sound especially the bass back into the ear canal. You can still clearly hear things around you, which I like about earbuds.

Right, thank you. I think the soundstage will be diminished quite drastically since the sound is being directed towards your ear canal. You think this is true? And can you wear these for hours without discomfort?

The one downside is that the sound becomes a little more intimate. But the comfort is worth it. Also, without it my right side easily falls off. But with these I have to tug really hard for them to come off. For me, these are a must have accessory if I were to use earbuds.

Is the sound change a big difference? And how long does a pair last?

Its not a big change.
Try this: angle your earbuds towards your ear canal until the sound is louder and the bass is stronger. It's like that but more comfortable and secure.
The silicone material is pretty durable. I've had mine for a couple months now and I wear it 4 nights a week for work for almost 3 hours at a time (12 hour shift) while setting up 15 liter reactors and sampling.

Oh right, thanks so much for the information estee. Going to try these out definitely but still torn apart on which earbuds to buy haha

 

EDIT: Anyone know where I can buy earbud foamies to cover the earbuds? Not comply foams or shure olives but the earbud foams, thanks.

Oh wow thank you. 25 PAIRS? Wow that would last me my whole life time I think. Does the thickness of the earbud foam pads matter? And what size do I choose? 18mm diameter? Will they be too loose?

These are fine, they won't be too loose.

Thickness does matter,foams that are too thick will make the earbud sound more veiled.

Are the thickness of the ones you sent me on eBay a good thickness?
