I just ordered a pair... Moments before reading dozens of poor reviews, complaining about fit issues. Do any of you guys have any experiences with this? I have pretty big "ear holes" so I'm concerned, does anyone know of any replacement pads I could use?

Thanks!

They have short and thin tips. Something like Head-direct bi-flanges or Shure clear flex(E2C size) tips give them more oomph in the sound and since they are longer cure the fit issues. I don't think the cost of foams are worth it for $30-$35 phones but I did use the T400 on them while I had them with good results.

Sound-wise they are very nicely balanced but fall short in the detail/refinement department to the J2, CX95, PL30 etc. A fun little phone and no real flaws to speak of but they just do not do anything really well. I bought them for a cheaper UE sounding phone but the difference to my SF 5 was too large for them to be usable.

Down below in my sig you won't see them which pretty much says what I thought of them.
