Hi,
Thanks for sharing.
Can you please link me to to that specific Comply tips?


Here they are on the Comply site - you may find them cheaper on places like Amazon or eBay if you are lucky:

I bought a pair from a headfier and love them. 
 
in a word "NATURAL"
 
they sound like life, listen to a movie and all the surrounding noises sound spot on.
 
a little dark (which i prefer)  it makes them less fatiguing.
 
with music you never feel like you are missing anything and even poor recording, put a smile on your face.
it gives you the details but doesn't take the song apart like all the more expensive IEM i have heard.
you forget you are listening to earphones and listen to the music.
 
Comply does make the weight unnoticeable.
 
32 ohms no amp needed, perfect for work/out and about.

Perfect description - they sound like life. Massively underrated set of IEMs for anyone who likes their music thick, natural and punchy.

I like mine, people just need to get it and spread the love.


I agree! I had the opportunity to audition and review the A8's and I found them to be supremely musical.

mine has a couple, i wipe em with a damp cloth only, haven't tried any chemicals to clean, and probably won't.
 
i bought mine 2nd hand and the seller sent me pics so i wasn't surprised by it, i'm sure its just a contact point, body heat/oil
 
email cardas tech support, might have a cleaning recommendation. 
 
But how do you like the sound?

Mine have the same discoloration - I thought I had done this by wearing them beneath my helmet. An explanation from Cardas would be appropriate.
