Ok fantastic, that's how I've been doing it thus far, I've found the comply and small tips to have the best fit, I was just unsure as I saw a post and someone said not to roll the foam tips, which is strange as I thought, that's the whole point!
I should really be careful with my ears, I wear earplugs at night and IEMs throughout a lot of the day, my ears are almost always full.
I had an extremely nasty ear infection for almost a full year just a few months back in my right ear, resulting in plenty of drops and a lot of doctor appointments, I ended up having to have an operation to remove a polyp from my eardrum, two months and one check-up later, a very small part of the polyp is still on my eardrum, however the chances of the infection coming back is slim but still apparent, I'm set for a second check-up in November to confirm the infection has completely gone. Luckily I had a hearing test shortly after the check-up and my hearing is "beyond perfect" as they said, 20/20 ears persay, which was both surprising to me and my doctor but I'm glad to have had no hearing lost after having an infection for a full year, it's also quite nice not to wake up with puss coming out of my ear.
Not sure where I was going with that, but there you go, ear infections are no good, rolling foam tips is all good.
