Recommended tips for smaller ears

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
With the help of people in this forum, I bought some Astrotec AM800s, which are actually pretty great.
The only bad thing is that I think even the smallest tips are a bit big for my ears (they often slide out and even if they don't, if i push them in a bit I can hear more of the bass)
I've also tried the supplied foam tips which didn't fall out, but it seemed to reduce the bass compared to the other tip.

Are there any recommend replacement tips for someone like me?

Shure olives?

I've asked a few friends and I've been told Shure are pretty good, but I think they said the ovals? Any better than the olives?

I haven't tried the ovals but the olives are very durable unlike comply foams.

One more question - say the fit is pretty much the same as my stock tips, would that smaller hole in the bud on the shures affect the sound in any way (positively or negatively)

Smaller holes in the bud? Do you mean the bore?

I would assume no, The SQ is affected more by the seal you get.
