I got the w4r and they seems quite good!

We will see!

 

(I haven't yet remove the tips! It seems hard and Im afraid to break it!)

Happened to me with the olives and comply, you just have to learn how to remove them... I don't know how to explain it sorry, but it's true that at the first time took me ages!

take a zip lock bag. put the iems in the freezer for 10 minutes and then try to remove the tips. this works well with the olives on the se535.....i dont even bother to use the olives or the likes on my iem's they can cause huge issues...

 

i just recently bought a pair of se535 and the previous owner had the olives on them and they were scary to get off. luckily i was able to get the tips off without issue.

 

i ONLY use silicone for this reason alone. not trying to snap a nozzle off

when I put a new set of olives on my 4R I apply a SMALL AMOUNT of hand lotion to the outter part of the tips, being careful to not put any inside the tip.  This makes it very easy to put the olives on but the olives stay where I set them without any issues as the lotion dries out fairly quickly.  when the time comes for removal of olives, there is just enough lubricating property of lotion left that they come off without any problems..   still a bit of resistance there but not enough to break the tips   YMMV

Simply use a gentle pull-twist motion! Am using mostly silicone tips. When i feel using foam tips (mostly Shure-yellow) ...

... one drop of "INSERpro" lubrificating gel (or oto-ease Lubricant, from Westone) rub on fingers, and apply around the nozzle surface B4 insert any foam tips!.

voilà mon ami!
