Recommended Posts

Hello LTT,


I was looking around for some foam eartips like these:


The problem is, i find them quiet expensive... can somebody please link or mention a product that's similar but cheaper.


Thanks in advance

Problem is they really aren't THAT similar, I personally do not like using the type linked above all that much, but I adore using the Comply type foam. I can't really find something that's gonna give a really good idea of how they are.

Grab any cheapo ear plugs, i.e. the yellow ones that you can buy at concerts. Soak them wet, or freeze them, then it will be a lot easier to create a hole in them. Make a hole that will fit your In-Ear canals. Tada... you've got yourself your own comply-like foam tips.

Aside from DIY solutions, there isn't really a good competing product. I found them to be a bit pricey too but I got lucky and found some on the head-fi forums for $12 because he ordered the wrong size.
