Good Replacements for Rubber Tips
on December 27, 2012
I have issues with rubber tipped earbuds because my (rather waxy) ears tend to force the rubber ones out after ~10 minutes or so, which makes using noise-isolating buds impossible. I bought these because I use my buds at home and wanted the isolation they provide.
The foam used for these is great - it is dense but comfortable, and fits like standard foam earplugs. I use these with a-Jays Three earbuds, and the sound quality is fantastic. I can't hear people talking directly to me in a quiet room, and can barely hear my keyboard as I type this. If you want complete isolation, these are the tips you have been looking for.
As for sizing, these are very close to standard earbud sizing (Small rubber tip = Small Comply tip, etc). I bought the large thinking these would compress more, but these are slightly too large (I usually use a medium rubber tip). These are fairly uncomfortable if you purchase the wrong size, so the sizing is pretty important.
Overall this is a great product; I made a mistake and bought the wrong size.
EDIT Jan. 2, 2013: The large buds began to soften up but were still somewhat uncomfortable. The medium size is incredibly comfortable and the earbuds sound just the same as before.
