Is it just me or do these things need to be replaced every 2 weeks or so with moderate use?

try getting one of the earwax removal kits, which should extend the longevity of the foamies. you can also try washing the foams using warm water and a mild detergent.

Exactly. Wash them with warm water and F.i. mild washing up stuff shortly, let them dry and they are as new.
Good thing too, for after extensive comparisonss I definately prefer the beter isolation and SQ of the fomies above that of the softtips, while comfort is on par, once you get used to them.

Okay, let me ask a rookie question. Is there anything about these foamies that make them more sonically conductive (yeah, I made that up, but you know what I mean
) than regular yellow foam earplugs? I'm assuming I'd have to puch a hole in the standard yellow foamies, but that wouldn't be too hard. Aren't the foamies from Shure about a buck a piece? And the inconvenience of having to order them all the time would get old.
Thanks, Dean
