Bought a set of Comply Foam Tips T100 from Amazon for my headphones. I had wanted to try something like that as it is supposedly to be soft and yet will fit snugly for a good hearing experience. I dun know why but my current headphones (Klipsch Image S4i earphones) are really good value for money but it is a bit painful to use. The right ear seemed to be painful when I used the medium size ear plugs. This is despite trying the 3 different sizes. (the rest are too small or too big). I am guessing my ears are a bit abnormal….
So I ordered these based on the reviews in several forums and on the Amazon web site:
Received them today. In a nice packaging and easy to hold the foam tips into 3 separate compartments of the holder.
To use them, you squeeze them into a thin roll and then pop them into your ears and hold for about 30 seconds to 45 seconds. The foam tips will then expand and fill up the ear hole for a snug fit…
So far I tried the smallest size and the medium size and the medium size seemed the best fit. I not tried these on the subway to see if the noise will really be reduced by the “good” fitting ear plugs and hence improve the sound quality.
I bought the “3 different size pack” so that I can see which size I eventually used. Then I will order the actual size (in pack of 3) if I really liked it and found the right size. Also, I bought the Comply T-100 tips but there is an more “advanced” (read: expensive) version known as T-400 which supposedly helped to avoid ear wax dirtying your earphones.. yucks..
I am liking it but I know myself. I need time to try out and patience as I lose interest very fast :) :) :)
