Shure PA758 NEW Soft Flex Sleeve (5 pairs) for Shure, Westone, Klipsch and Etymotic Review by Earphone Solutions
Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews
By far these are the best of the all of the ones that I have tried. The foam ones are not a good choice if you take you earphones in and out frequently, plus they are just uncomfortable to me. The silicone tips are too hard and do not give a good seal, so not good for bass response. The PA758 seal nicely and are very comfortable. Like others have said ears are different, but if you have tried all the others and cannot get the seal and comfort that you want try these. A good fit is critical to get the most out of your earphones. I use the large size.
I use these on my shure se215's very happy with the fit in the ear and helps block out the noise even better.
I've tried about every sleeve available on my Shures and Westones, and these keep rising to the top in terms of sound isolation, comfort and durability. Once seated, they stay there. Most foam sleeves don't, and most other silicone tips simply don't fit my ears. I realize that ears are different creatures, but for me, these are the ones (large size) I use regularly on all my IEMs. Pros: Fit, durability, sound isolation Cons: Nothing
Use these on my Shure SE215's and so far have not had any problems...they fit nicely in my ear and create a good seal... Pros: Soft...doesn't hurt your ears Create a good seal... Cons:
I would personally prefer these over the silicon standard eartips. These are much cheaper, sweat proof, and comfortable. Although they dont provide as secure of a fit for runners, they are very comfortable. They dont provide as good of isolation as with the foam tips, but they dont absorb highs like the foam tips do. I would not recommend these on westone 3 because the highs would be quite piercing. I loved these tips with the westone 2 because they bring out all the clarity i didnt hear with comply tips. These are great for conditions where sweat may ruin foam tips. Pros: -good for exercise -cheaper than standard siliccon tips -comfort Cons:
I wanted to like these tips but just couldn't. They gave me a good seal and were comfortable, plus they are extremely durable. Unfortunately, when compared to the shure Olives it sounds tinny. Now, everyones ears are different so this might just be me, but I noticed a big difference between these and the Shure Olives Pros: Cons:
I too prefer the Shure PA910 but keep in mind that this is very personal. Some customers love the Triple-Flange and I can't stand them :)
Comfortable,noise reduction,durable Pros: Cons:
I'm actually using them with a pair Etymotic hf5 earphones and they fit perfectly. For me they are more comfortable than the triple flange provided. They don't isolate as much, but the difference is minimal. Pros: Comfort Isolation Cons:
What I was looking for: a slightly-less isolating sleeve for my UM-1's. The original foam sleeves are comfortable and awesome fitting/sounding, but can block out TOO much sound for some situations requiring interaction with others, plus insertion/removal is an ordeal for casual listening on errands. Foam also also get kind of unsightly with use and wear out pretty quickly. Unfortunately, these silicone replacements were not the answer - they didn't grip any better than stock iPod buds. and the sound was even worse because of the poor seal. I'm going back to foam. Pros: Easy to clean, durable, cheap per pair. Cons: Poor fit, meaning they fall out easily don't seal properly so yield a poor sound, particularly in the bass.
Keep in mind eartips are just like shoes. What works for some will not work for others as we are basically trying to match our ear canal anatomy with one of the eartips size and material.
Best, most comfortable for me of the sleeves included in a starter pack for the Westone 3. Pros: Very comfortable for me. Sound quality comes through great. Cons: Why not include Westone 3 in the list of earphones these fit?
Thanks for the suggestion. We will do that! ;)
I got these for UM1s. They were exactly what I was looking for. Blocked out noise, comfortable and easy to pop in and out. Perfect for the UM1s. Pros: Cons:
I almost gave up. I tried all the foams, flanges, comply sleeves--all of them. Could not get a comfortable seal, and therefore no bass. These things work, and they're so comfortable you will forget they are there. If you use a device these will fit, they will get out of it everything that is gettable. Pros: Cons:
These are great with the Sure E-3 Pros: Cons:
