Which model of Comply tips do you like best?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I want to get some Comply tips for my SE-215s because of the rave reviews on here. I like the shure olives, and I use the largest one for the best fit.

Could someone enlighten me as to the differences between the various Comply tip models? There is comfort, isolation, super isolation, etc. Any major differences?

Also, what size would I need from Comply if I am using the largest Shire olive tips?

Thanks!

Well, I tend to have ear wax factories, so I use the TXs for the filters on them.

What's the difference between the P isolation and the TX "super isolation" models? Comply doesn't do a very good job of explaining it on their site.

I think the P are intended to value comfort over TX. The TX also has an earwax filter, I don't think the P does.

Perfect, thanks! I ordered a set of the Ps in large.

Hmm, do tell me how you like them when they arrive.

The Comply tips I got were supposedly medium in size yet they are significantly bigger than either the Senn stock foamies or the Mobeast foamies. Does this sound right? Also, I didn't find them very comfortable (possibly because they were too large) and they made my ear canals itch.

I sure hope these larges fit! I use the largest Shure olive, so I assumed that I may need the large comply tips. I will certainly post my impressions once they come in.

I just heard a technique that improves the treble end with Complys. Basically push the end down, and then roll them as you push it back to keep the end open. Like this:

Hi CirrusPilot,

 

Our Active S-series of tips are our most affordable option.  The foam is more porous, so you’re not going to achieve the same level of sound isolation as you would with our other series of tips.  However, the foam is more durable.  This makes it a good choice for active users or for those using inexpensive IEMs during workouts, high mileage users, etc.

The Isolation T-series and Isolation Plus Tx-series are ideal for maximum isolation and sound quality. Since our tips are compressible and then expand in the ear canal to create a custom fit, you are competing less with outside noises.  This allows you to turn down the volume and give your full attention to the music. (Or podcast or audiobook -  much harder to crank up!)

Our Comfort Ts-series and Comfort Plus Tsx-series is where things get a little more subjective.  Some users prefer the spherical shape of these tips – particularly if they have a shorter bend to their ear canal.  In some cases, customers find they receive better sound isolation when using the Ts or Tsx tips.  Of course, tip experience is always going to be subjective due to the individual shape of the ear canal.

The Professional P series of tips has a threaded core, so you’ve probably noticed that it is not compatible with most earphones.  The length and tapered design allows for deep insertion, providing maximum noise reduction and ear retention.

In regards to the Comfort Plus (Tsx-series) and the Isolation Plus (Tx-series) this is simply referring to the addition of the integrated Wax-Guard.  The size of and the material of the foam is exactly the same.  The integrated Wax-Guard is acoustically transparent while protecting your device from wax, sweat and other debris.  These things can enter the sound port of your device, diminishing the quality of sound over time.

 

I hope this information helps answers your questions!  Also, please send me a message if you are in need of a coupon code.

 

Thanks,

 

Mary

I'm still not sure if I should try the Isolation Plus or the Comfort Plus on my new RHA 750i IEM. They're even more expensive in my country due to resellers involved and that's why it isn't an easy decision to buy them anyway.
