Complys or Shure Olives might work for most ears, judging from their shapes. I, too, get a fiddly fit with their tips, and I learned it's mostly the tips' fault as they are a lot stouter than I'd like. I haven't tried Shure Olives with them, but I have with Complys, and they fit me particularly well. Complys do wear out fast, though. tongue.gif

I have been forced to use the medium sized eartips for the past few days as one of my small tips dropped off and bounced to gosh knows where when I plucked the right side piston out of my ear canal  :rolleyes:

 

To my surprise, although the overall sound is a tad thicker (especially a more pronounced mid bass) with the medium tips, I found the mid range, especially the vocals, to come to the fore! Unbelievable! 

 

For those who still don't think much of the pistons:

 

1) You got a probable fake

 

2) Your pistons are not burned in yet

 

3) This is to me THE most important factor - you MUST get a good seal with the tips. Clean out any wax, oil or water residue from your ears (use your fingers if necessary, it's worth being scorned at  :p) then take some time to maneuver them into place. They should feel comfy and isolate some environmental noise.

piston 2 back down to $19.99 on ibuyjou.  not sure if they are 2.0 or 2.1.   for the price, it really shouldn't matter.  they should be authentic as that is where i got mine and many others here have gotten them.

Looked at their full Pistons product list, and man, these guys really don't know official pricing very well. I wouldn't go into the details, but that is some confusing pricing.

Anyways, I'm writing up a new OP in case anyone is interested in making a new Pistons Thread, as some of you have taken notice of the lack of info on this thread's OP. Again, if enough people want to start one, I'll gladly start one for the pplz.

I'd love that. I also want to know how these sound compared to TTPOD T1-E's. Many people on the forum love the T1-E's.
