The thing is with foams, is that you crush them so they are very small, put them in your ear, and they expand. This leads to a much better seal. This increases isolation and comfort, as there is no plastic/rubber/silicone pressing into you ear. They stay in better as well.

But how much extra would it isolate?

Please, stop asking the same thing over and over. You wont find great differences between earplugs and foam IEMs. Listening music could make external noise less disturbing, but again: nothing, no earplug, no IEM, noise cancelling device, security headphones will stop external noise.  

 

If the noise disturbs you during the night, there are white noise machines (look online).

Whoa. squa only tried to point out that there's no need for you to ask the same question over and over again. If no one answers your question, it's either that no one knows or no one cares, but no need to spew some expletives. Being rude won't really help you.

 

And no one really knows how much custom IEM sleeve(tips) isolates aside from the manufacturers since they're all made differently.

What's the point of using IEM if you're not playing music to block noise then? Just get earplugs or something.

Custom IEM tips are not foam-they are plastic. There are universal fit foam tips, then there are custom molded plastic tips.

It depends on how good of a seal you have right now. You may have a really good seal with normal silicones, in which case you will not get a ton of extra isolation. I never got a good seal with silicones, so I got foams. Never tried customs myself though. They go deep, and take some getting used to (uncomfortable at first) from what I hear.

I could explain myself better, so I assume some responsibility for the misunderstanding.

 

ender323 explained well enough

Isolation for IEMs is necessary to improve bass response (leakage) and it helps blocking external noise, but its not the main purpose. I mentioned earplugs because you didn't want to listen to music with them (good earplugs are cheaper than good IEMs)

So, you want isolation with music playing and without?

With my Comply tips, I can't hear outside noise at all with music on. Without music, isolation is good, but no where near perfect. Also, having cables to get tugged on is annoying, and microphonics become intolerable.

I would advise you to simply get some IEMs with Comply tips, and buy yourself a pair of earplugs for when you aren't listening to music.

I mean ETY doesn't seem very positive, they don't use any comply tips

Nor cosmic ears

 

And there weren't much suggestions in here either

Not many suggestions. You have 5 pages. FIVE. Just buy something. Put complys on if you want. If you don't like it, sell it/return it, and buy something else.

With my current IEM, would you recommend me to just get the custom foam tips? Or get more expensive IEMs?
