Definitely appreciate the compliments from everyone. Indeed, lipless nozzles are infuriating. I think we should be more vocal about it here or via KZ's new "qq" email thingy. I think it started with ED7 (maybe earlier, I forget) but it's purely poor design choice. I use 3.5mm - 4.0mm eartip collars on the nozzles. My whirlwind tips slide past the the mesh like they've got somewhere to go, somewhere to be. I thought about using Teflon tape. It doesn't help that the nozzles are like telephone poles either. Folks with small ears might experience discomfort, but it depends on how small the aperture of their ear is. I'll have to check the specs for the nozzle width and insert that info into the review.
