Sony EPEX10A Eartip EPEX10A/BLK Ear Cushions

Customer Reviews

These fit tight and the ear seal is excellent.
I noticed an immediate improvement in seal, comfort, and sound quality from the 8320s after fitting them with these.
My one gripe - There seems to be large difference in size between the medium and large size tips.

A package of these represents close to what Sony provides with its ultra-expensive, top-of-the-line, audiophile earphones, the MDR-EX700s, which come with 7 different-sized tips. The EX-300 and EX500 earphones come with three. They're called "hybrid" by Sony because of a double-layered hard and soft-shell construction to ensure a bubble-like seal around the ear canal. And to take some of the guess work out of the selection process, Sony tips--providing they're official, Sony-made tips--are color-coded on the inside (you can match them up with a color-graded chart on the back of the package).

The other primary route taken by audiophiles using IEM phones (in ear monitors) is Comply Foam Tips. Sony, however, explicitly recommends using their silicone hybrid tips, at least with Sony phones, rather than foam. Although I have found foam preferable in a few instances (Altec Titanium earphones, for instances), I'm convinced Sony tips work best with Sony phones, which moreover deliver the most pleasing, natural, open and full-spectrum sound over the long haul.

As for price, Comply Foam tips come to approximately 5 bucks per pair; Sony tips, just a little over 2. Moreover, Comply foam can wear out, get kind of ratty, torn and dirty, and in as little as 2 weeks. I have yet to wear out a pair of Sony tips.

The question of size is not as easily answered as some users, and even manufacturers, suggest. I've found that it's not simply a matter of "getting fitted" and then forgetting about it. There are times that the larger size seems more effective (remember that the Sony tips are soft on the outside and hard on the inside, allowing for a large surface area to cover the ear canal and providing full sound without completely sealing out environmental sound).

Excellent, excellent earbuds. I recently purchased a pair of Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10s, and was having issues with the earbuds - no matter which tips I tried, my ears hurt (the 'rim' of the ear canal) after 30 minutes to an hour of listening.

On recommendation from a friend (he recently bought these to go on his Sennheiser IE8s), and after verifying they fit the Triple.Fis, I ordered a pack. My initial impressions were very good - the inner core of the buds are considerably stronger than the Ultimate Ears, and the outside (the 'flange'?) are considerably thinner and more pliable, without seeming cheap. They fit like a dream - I went from being conscious of having canalphones in with the old tips (fiddling with them every couple of minutes) to not noticing them *at all* with the Sony tips.

Sound quality is very similar, although (for some reason) there is noticeably more bass with these tips. Not an unpleasant amount - it just seems to bring it up in the mix slightly, for whatever reason. The isolation seems very similar to the Ultimate Ears tips - not best in class, but good enough for me.

Fit-wise, I previously found the Ultimate Ears medium earbuds to be the best fit in my ears, but with these I get a much better fit with the XLs.

I purchased these because the tips on the Monoprice ear buds are horrible and only come in one pair. That pair does not my ears properly so the sound coming off the earbuds were not as great as it should be.

Once I opened the package, to my disappointment, these tips do no fit the monoprice earbuds. I'm not going to complain why these don't fit them because they were obviously made for Sony's ear buds. This merely a warning for those like myself who saw these Sony ear buds under "What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?" and figured they would fit.

They don't fit but I made them fit because I did not want to send this back. You can make them fit by:
1. Take a paperclip, place it in the ear buds hole.
2. Squeeze in the monoprice ear bud.
3. Push the paperclip out slowly.
4. Shift around the ear tip to properly fit the monoprice ear bud.

and done ! it fits now but It would be best for any of you monoprice owners to move on to something that would actually fit the ear bud.

As for sound quality .. it sounds great ! the bass is clearer, the highs are less annoying. It sounds great, amazing ? no but it sounds enough to satisfy.

Like I said, if you own the Monoprice earbuds, do not buy these Sony earbuds. Find ones that fit regularly.

I've had my Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 earphones for over 2 years now. I've always had to readjust the tips because they would either come loose or not provide the perfect seal. It was a nuisance to say the least. I just couldn't get the right fit from any of the tips that those earphones shipped with.

Thanks to these tips by Sony, the sound experience with my earphones has improved a lot. The seal I got was perfect (I used the largest size ear tips) and the earphones stay snug in my ear for the duration I wear them (and I've worn them for over 3 hours straight multiple times). Before, I couldn't go 10 minutes without having to readjust them.

The trick I think to these are that the tips are made of a rubber-type material that is much more pliable and slimmer than the one that shipped with the ultimate ears. This lets the tips really form to your ears and create a solid seal. Furthermore, I noticed that the sound isolation was much improved with these over the ones that shipped with the ultimate ears--I can't hear my family yelling from across the room anymore ;-)

Also, the part of the tips that slide onto the earphones (the actual attachment mechanism) is much better than the ultimate ears tips. It is thicker and sturdier.

But that's not it. Another great aspect to these tips are that they actually do improve the sound quality of the earphones in that the bass sounds a bit richer and tighter (in a good way).

If you are having fit, seal, or isolation issues with your Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Earphones, these are for you. Many people bash the ultimate ears earphones because they don't get a good fit or seal, so I think this might be the perfect solution for most people that have these problems. For ~$6, it's definitely worth a try in my opinion.

Hope this helps.
