Sorry if the question has been asked before... but googling it.... I can't find a proper answer...
My Monster Turbines came with Triple Flange Tips and I've had them for a quite a long time... About 2 years now... but I've never used these tips before.
Honestly looking at them... they look intimidating... like they are going to rape your ear. Bit I've tried them out today///
it doesn't seem like you can get them in and fitted properly without actually pushing them all the way in until they seem to be touching the wall inside your ear.
They sound good, are very secure, and the bass response is definitely better. But I have to wonder if I'm doing it right and if they could potentially damage my ears.
I did as RapidPulse Recommended and cut off the last tip. That prevents the triple Flange from hitting the ear drum and it still gives just as good of a seal for my ears. Big improvement.... but I still felt these tips were starting to bother my ears after a couple days of constant use.
I decided to give these a try... http://www.head-fi.org/t/383917/how-to-best-custom-tips-for-iems-ever-imho-with-pics
I got the tips from Target for a few dollars for a box of them. And they have a nice good seal and work really well for the Monster Turbines... and don't put as much pressure along the inside of the canal.
