That's an INGENIOUS idea for the tips , reversing it like that for better fit. Seems better than cutting out the center from a perfectly good tip at least you can reuse it later. Thought I would post that up if it's ok with you , not sure if the picture was externally linked or not. When folks in the future come back here to see where the world dominating T-peos IEM phenomenon began they will see it still this way.
Can you check back in later ( whenever ) with some impressions compared to the stock tips?

Haha sorry I dont know how to put pictures like that so I just added an attachment haha. My apologies everyone. I know it seems weird downloading it when I could have of posted it like that.
For me, its so much better than using stock tips. I'm very fussy about comfort and usually use foams as they give me the best fit and isolation but I just ran out of foamies and they are quite pricey and figured I should stop buying more haha. So I pulled out my bag of ear tips and found my good ol' Klipsch oval tips which at first I thought were never practical as they are shaped to your ear which is oval and would fall out easily but I was completely wrong. They are one of my favourite tips along with the Sony Hybrids. So I tried to put them on but the bore was way to small to fit on the H-100 so I was going to buy one more pair of foamies so I can decore them and use the cores to go on the H-100 and put the oval tips inside them but I remember seeing somewhere on a thread something about "megatips"? (If anyone happens to know what I'm talking about please tell me about them as I lost that thread lol) So then I took a silicone tip and folded it inside out and inserted the oval tips inside and VOILA! It worked like a charm. Was quite shocked and impressed. I'm such a sucker for quality bass and finally, I've found what I was looking for!
I dont know what to call this so I will just refer to it as the "eartip mod".
When you use the eartip mod for the H-100 (although I'm sure it will work for other IEMs) you wont tell much difference unless you listen to a bass heavy track as I, myself can only notice a difference in the lower bass regions and maybe slightly in the mid bass area too unless I am imagining this. I'm no audiophile BTW.
You can feel the bass a lot more than using single flanged tips or "stock" tips. It has more strength and power and you can even make out the difference in texture if you listen really carefully. I I I do feel the isolation is where the eartip mods strongest point is but the bass difference is also great compared to the stock tips, if that makes sense hah.
Everyone should try it, I guess its one of those things you either hate or love, its worth a try because its completely reversible.
Oh and, if you do experience driver flex like me with your H-100 then this will reduce it substantially or completely remove it.
