I see the T-400 recommended alot here, but it's 3x the price and I hear they don't last long. I have the 8320 Monoprice earbuds, and they sound good, but the silicone is kinda uncomfortable in my ears, was wondering if memory foam would work better...
 
Thoughts? 5x VS 15$.

I have never cared for the shiny black foam tips like that (Shure Olives excluded) I think some came with my IE8s - A version came with my 1964 Ears Universal V8 - and they have come with other IEMs over the years. They don't hold on to the nozzle real well and I don't think I have seen a pair that had a diameter as large as Westones, Shures & Complys. So I never could get a decent seal.
 
(I still have a bunch of them in my tip box)

I like Comply and many other high quality foam ear tips - I use them all the time. My point was that you may not be pleased with these foam ear tips. They are cheaper, and will save $$ - but I believe their performance (IMO) is sub par.
