trying to track down some specific triple-flange spares

post #1 of 3

hi

 

been trying to use a waterproof mp3 player recently to relieve boredom of lap swimming

 

got a pretty cool little grundig player which has sturdy over-ear hooked iem's

 

the problem is that i can't get a decent seal with any of the included attachments, or any of those that i have accumulated over the years

 

the seal has nothing to do with sound quality, as it's not so important for it's intended use...the main problem is that water also gets into the ear after a couple of laps, at which point nothing but a dull rumble can be heard...i then have to stop, remove and then rearrange

 

so, i'm thinking of trying to find some triple flange tips to put on the beds to get a real deep seal hoping to keep the water out

 

i would like to get some help in identifying some that might fit

 

if anyone 'bites' i'll try to upload some photos to show the relative size

 

all i do know is the part that connects to the speaker extension is considerable wider than that of the old shure iem's that i used to use with triple-flanges

 

any help would be greatly appreciated

Meelectronics Triple Flanges are the best triple flanges I've used,(used shure tf, some other triple flanges) and these provide the best isolation with great comfort and bass is a significant boost due to the perfect seal that these generate, I highly recommend them. You can buy from the official MEELEC.com website or buy comparitively cheaper from its official ebay retailer from here:
