Figure I'd pop in and share my setup :)
 
Cowon J3 32gb + Ringke silicone case + Sennheiser IE8 + Sony Hybrid Tips (green stem, medium size?) with Comply Foam under the silicon of each tip, but you guys probably already knew that

 haha.  I'm kinda particular on the fit of my IEM's (had quite the battle when I had my TripleFi's haha) and I've found the foam underneath the Hybrid Tips seems to work the best for me right now.  Anyway, enough of me blabbering, here are the pics:

Question: when u use comply underneath silicone tips, do they degrade? And if so, how long it's their life span?

I'm not sure, I don't think so.  They should last quite a while since they aren't touching my ear directly.  I had to cut out the inner barrel of the comply foam and the rest of the foam just lays on the barrel of the sony hybrid tip.  With this setup I'm the most happiest so far, but I could see myself switching down the road.  I'm always experimenting haha.

That is a very cool idea.  It is hard to find silicon tips that are stiff enough to form just the right seal.

this thing looks lil scary, i don't think your rig can pass through airport security... it kinda looks like a BOMB.


Many of the rigs here look like bombs....

I can see it now.  The airport interrogation room being filled with head-fiers trying to explain away their suspicious looking portable rigs.
