if they are the same white ones that come with the e-q5s, then my opinion is that they are terrible at isolation.

i cant comment too much on sound tho. i only use iems on the subway and bus, so i simply dont use tips that dont isolate ^^

Hmm, that's interesting. I have heard opinions opposite to your experience. That they improved the sound drastically. Don't remember if they said anything about isolation, but it was positive. Oh well, ill have to try it out to know for sure. They are quite expensive too.

well, we all hear things differently. ^^

hmm, i imagine that getting them is both expensive and difficult

I have to go with the Klipsch gels. Great sound quality, great isolation and you barely feel them. I use them with all my IEMs.

I have two of those on the way to me, one medium and one large to test.

I recently picked up the Comply ts-400 for my brainwavz m5. So far i am loving them. They retarded the highs which i was finding to be way to much but now the sound is perfect. The bass has increased also in a good way. I don't even feel them now where as before with the stock tips it came with made my ears kinda itch i guess and i had to take them out a lot. The isolation is great. I don't even hear myself typing on my mechanical keyboard. Another thing i will have to say is i switched the way i wear them. I use to wear them normally but i now have them flipped upside-down and wrapped the wire around my ear that also changed the tone.

My favorite tips are Sony Hybrids, followed by UE Single flange tips (these) and then Shure Olives. I love the durability and comfort of Shure Olives but I hate the limited compatibility (unless I'm willing to de-core a pair or two, which I haven't done so far).

decoring the olive is actually not that hard. just takes time and care not to rip the foam.

Any tips that will fit my oversize ear holes. Haven't yet found any that give a tight seal for me.

AB why not try the Large comply one the rounded ones,

 

I have the same issue, only the massive things do me,

post #73 of 106

shure christmas tree ( triflange i guess they could also be called ) for isolation and drummers as they dont fall out . Comply for most others would be my vote

post #74 of 106

Thanks AD. I tried the comply but still too small. I'll hunt down the Shure's

I love the Etymotic tri-flange tips. I think they give the best treble out of all the tips I've tried. But when they go deep, it's very difficult to remove em. I often take more than 10 seconds to remove just one of them, which is really impractical especially when I'm not at home.
