When I put a UE IEM on it takes like 1-2 minutes because of the THICK wire and and the dumb over ear thing... any tips?
I have done moistening the silicone tip. Maybe I should just shove it back in the box as a gift for someone, it's pissing me off really. Good lord I didn't get the dual drivers.

Quite simply, I just make sure the memory wire isn't curled around the same part of the ear my glasses rest on. This makes it just as if I'm not wearing glasses when putting my IEMs on, and I can get them on in about 5 seconds or so, mostly from getting the right initial orientation.

For the record, I probably have the most (or second most) clunky UE IEM to put on, being the Super.fi 5 EB. I think the Triple.fi 10's might be more difficult, but I haven't tried them so I can't really offer an opinion.

1) Pull top of ear up and out.
2) Insert with twisting motion.
3) Do whatever else you need to do.

you could try the flip flop mod, so you can wear them the "normal" style..

Really, now.. I don't have the same IEM's that you have, but with the shure e3c, I just put the cable over the ear, and shoves it into my earcanal, with glasses on.
You remove your glasses often?
The bars on mine aren't that much in the way, you have very thick bars?

1) straighten the stiff part of the cable (near the earpiece)
2) plug the earpiece into the ear, also make sure it has properly sealed
3) bend the (stiff part of the cable) over and around the ear
4) done!

oh, and I've always done it with my glasses on
