What are some of the most comfortable IEMs in your collection or you have previously owned regarless of price? IEMs that you can comfortably wear lying in bed or provide all day comfort without frequent repositioning?

For me, in no particular order...

Sony IER-M9
Sennheiser IE300/IE900
Shure SE846

They look comfortable. I find Single DD IEMs generally fit better.

I'm guessing the Xelento is just as comfortable.

All phonak iems. They are very comfortable and small that you will probably forget it there

I know they make hearing aids. Do they still make IEMs?

The Hörluchs HL-4210. They fit almost perfectly and feel like custom IEMs. Could wear them all-day without any pain or trouble. Sadly, they don't sound as good as comparable IEMs

FitEar MH334SR >>>

Sony EX800ST / Final E500 / Periodic Audio Be

Sony IER-M9 / FiiO FD5 / UERR

Roughly in that order, with FitEar massively ahead, M9 would be up to the EX800ST tier if it doesn't give me tip selection issues with the air pressure build up

IMR EDP and Moondrop Starfield. Once you put them in, you forget they are there.

I agree. It took a while to get a good seal with the M9. None of the triple comfort tips fit, and it wasn't until i tried the LL hybrid silicone where it fit like a glove. I'm usually between M and L. Never had pressure builup issue though.

Interesting. Never heard of this IEM.
