In the meantime, I've been using the black foam tips (see picture below - I don't know if they're from Comply, but they're similar in form to the "Isolation" T-100 Comply tips). They're nice but because of their shape (larger at the base, narrower at the tip), I feel like the medium size is a tad too small, and the large size feels like it's slowly coming out of my ear canal, which causes some discomfort.
So I've had this idea of wearing the tips in reverse, i.e. with the narrower tip against the IEM and the larger base inside the ear canal. I've been wearing them that way only for half an hour but I feel like the seal is better, and I don't get the impression that they're slowly coming out. I find that configuration to be reasonably comfortable so far, but I reserve my judgement for later, when I've worn them that way for a whole day.
I'd just like to know if there's any reason I shouldn't do it? Could it mess with the original shape of the tips, or otherwise damage them?
