    No, I would still just buy the solid color pack.

    Maybe but a colored dot or more subtle marking on one side would be nicer.

Hey Yall,

I recently tried an idea that I am recommending to Comply (i'm positive im not the only one to do this i know) but I got tired of trying to read the "L" and "R" on some of my iems and even my TripleFi 10s with their v shape and hook cable I STILL manage to have to pause a sec to figure out which side goes on which ear.

So I simply took my recently ordered RED comply tips and put the RED on the RIGHT and put one of the GREY ones that came with the TF10 on the Left. I did this with my other IEMs and I din't realize how annoying it was before until now that I just put them in without even thinking.

Some universal fit IEM owners (like some ETY models for example) won't have a need for this because they are more clearly marked but my question is this for the rest of us:

DO YOU THINK IF THEY CAME PACKAGED IN 2 (or more) COLORS IT WOULD BE USEFUL?
OR would you just buy solid color ones if multi color was available?

Obviously you could just buy two colors but the advantage here is only having to spend money on one package and I think most people wont even both buying a 2nd pack for this purpose.. Plus the round tips only come in black.

Feel free to post alternate recommendations but PLEASE make sure you vote.

I cannot speak for myself... I am in no position to purchase anymore Comply Foam Tips.

 

I just recently bought a 180 pair.

 

But, If Comply would make them. I am sure it would be helpful to some.

 

Jim

 

PS When I don my Etys, I take my time, and enjoy it.

 

Edit... spelin and I voted, as though I would need more tips.

Howdy Doc,

 

I just had a look at Complyfoam.com.

 

They do sell for my IEM, a Blue and Red Foam Tip separately.

 

So... My thought is.

 

Contact Comply and ask for a 25% discount at time of purchase for buying 2 packs. I.E. 1 red, 1 blue.

 

Just a thought, Jim

I prefer homemade foam tips. They're 10 times cheaper than Complys, and work just as well.

I actually do think this is a good idea. It's kind of like creating a needs which isn't previously known.

 

It's like before Starbucks Americans didn't really "need" to drink espresso based beverage. But Starbucks created this demand. 

 

I also like the idea if u buy two packs in different colors then you receive a discount. This way it safes Comply with assortment packaging and customers still have the ability to choose.

Thats a good idea TC but:

1. "20offcomply" - bam.. there u go 20pct off and you don't even have to ask.

2. If they were already mixed colors in the package, then you will only have to buy one pack AND save the %20 😃

What are you making them out of? I.e. what's your source of foam and what type of foam?

post #10 of 26

Yeah... Been there done that.

 

20 off comply only works one time.

I got the foam from CVS drug store. It was on sale, close out I think. Most any foam plug ear will work.

I believe this is what I bought. At least the same as I use.

 

CVS Protective Foam Earplugs $7.99
