These tips are comfortable. They fit my Westones well. The main reason I bought them was that they have built in screens which makes having to clean the phones themselves practically unnecessary.

These tips provide a great, comfortable seal with my Westone UM Pro 10. They're more durable than Comply, and seal much better than the Westone foam tips, resulting in significantly better bass response. I sometimes wear them while sleeping, and unlike the longer tips from other manufacturers, they do not collapse and block the sound if I end up laying on my side. They perfectly complement the UM Pro 10 negative profile. Earphone Solutions is absolutely right to rank these as number one. I did find that I needed the large size - medium didn't provide an adequate seal.

I use these every weekday with my Etymotic ER4P's. I originally ordered the mediums, but I recently ordered the large. These are comfortable and isolate well, but it's entirely up to what size works best for you. Most people don't even know, or notice, but several people have different ear canal sizes, so you may need one size in one ear and a completely different size in another.

I use these with my Shure SE215s. They're like foam earbuds - can you squeeze/twist the foam before you insert them in your ears, so they fit more snuggly. They're not perfectly sound isolating, but still allow me to hear clearly at a safe volume even when playing next to drums. I personally struggled a bit to remove them when I want to clean the inside of my earphones (earwas build up), but I understand the tightness is necessary to stay on normally.

Essential foam tips for Klipsch X10 and PFE012

Yes

I bought the shure olives (small) for my W4 and UM3x, but was disappointed that not only it was tough to put them in, they caused discomfort after some period of time. Somehow, it felt like a bullet inside my ear canal, but I was pleased with the excellent isolation it gives. Probably, W4 and UM3x are heavy and bulky IEMs, so putting them in would cause discomfort. But the good news, they're great that they don't muffle the sound like comply does (except the T-400 due to the larger bore) and when you rolled 'em up, the foam will not expand until you insert them into your ears. More importantly, you would not have to crank the volume up when you're at noisy area; shure olives block noise into whisper. I even tested it when I drive in freeway (don't try this) and I barely hear the sound of engine and car passing by, except the bumps in freeway. Therefore, Shure olives offer excellent isolation and they're perfect for BA iems because they need good isolation to give its best tight bass. BA IEMs are known for providing inadequate bass; one may be disappointed by the bass-heavy BA like X10 and PFE012 Again, I was disappointed that the shure olives were unusable. I prefer the Westone's star tips over the shure olives for my W4 and UM3x because of the comfort problem (yet, the star tips don't isolate that great either). But, I discovered that they shine when used on my X10 and PFE012 because their stock tips are mediocre, uncomfortable, and again not isolating. I doubted before until I tried; X10 and PFE012 actually can be fitted with the shure olives easier than I thought. As the result, combination of comfort and isolation they give to the X10 and PFE put W4 and UM3x to shame; they sound much fuller, better sound stage and perceivable bass than before because of the isolation that the olives give. In my opinion, what's good of an IEM if it sounds good but don't give the comfort / isolation needed for portable use? So, for those who have purchased Klipsch X10 and PFE012, having Shure olives is essential. But take home lesson: Try something new. don't doubt until you see the result as long as it's not risky. I thought the olives were impossible to be put on x10 and PFE but they actually fit and can be removed far easier than the W4./UM3x. Note: Struggling to fit shure olives into my UM3x/W4 left me frustrated so I drilled the shure olive's core with screwdriver in order to expand the hole size. As the result, the olives easily insert into the UM3x / W4 easily, but I realized that the drilled olives encourage sibilance and piercing treble of the hi-hat crash/cymbals ( I had compared it with the non-drilled one which sound smoother). Pros: 1. Will not expand until you put them inside the ears, giving your time to position the earphone to your ear correctly 2. Does not muffle the sound 3. Killer isolation. No joke Cons: 1. expensive 2. may be uncomfortable for some, could be comfortable for lighter IEMs

These are probably the best in ear type of bud's for my really nice sounding Shure SE-535's. They seem to stay in the ear after the foam expands. They're comfortable. However, if you work out and your ears end up sweating a lot, they'll slowly come out or loosen up and need to be readjusted. I like this style headset over the clumsy big Bose ear muff style headsets better, I see travelers with on commercial flights. Pros: Generally quite comfortable and a good fit. Cons: Not cheap though. Need to use new pair more often, depending on use and activities.

Best sound but bad fit on earphone stems
Location
Monmouth, New Jersey
Posted on
10/15/2012
Recommended?
Yes

On the Westone 3 and 4, these provide the best sound. The Comply tend to attenuate the highs and very low end, possibly due to having a narrower diameter channel through the foam. Problem with the "olives"; is that that they fit very tightly on the stems; they are made for Shures with a slightly narrower stem. You must very carefully pry them off and push them on. Don't twist as you would with less tight-fitting tips or you'll eventually break a stem and then your earphone is irreparable junk. You can reduce this risk by using progressively large twist drill bits to ream the socket on the tips. Finish with a 9/64s bit and only turn the bits by hand; don't use a drill. The surface of the Olives will wear for a very long time but I find that with daily use, the olives in about a month or so, lose their ability to slowly expand after compressing. They still work in that case but are harder to insert. Pros: Provide the best sound on Westone 3 and 4s. Cons: Fit too tightly on earphone stems; risking breakage. Quickly lose ability to slowly rebound. I'd only recommend them with caveats.

I own the westone 4's and was disappointed with the stock eartips. I read rave reviews about the olive tips so i ordered the mediums which ended up not fitting. I then tried the large ones and although they were snug, the tips are too shallow and don't form a proper seal. This resulted in poor bass response and higher than normal sibilance. I ended up getting the comply tips and couldn't be happier. I have found for eartips that YMMV so you'll have to throw down some cash and order a few to see which ones are best. Don't give up hope!

The shure olive tips are great. I can hear details and highs that the comply tips seem to absorb. They do decompress with a bit force and can be painful for sleeping. They also dont decompress very well in the first place. for westone earphones, they are a bit difficult to put on and remove. Here are some tips that made it easy for me. When i put on the tips, they twist in 3/4 of the way and seem to get stuck there, i put my finger on the hole and push the tip directly into the earpiece, do not use too much force as it isnt needed, but you should hear a click, the earphone sorta pops al the way down the nozzle and in on perfectly. (the pop sound is not the nozzle breaking) To remove them, in my experience, twisting will get you nowhere. i put my nails in between the earpiece and the tip, and gently pry it. it will come ou7t like 1/3 of the way and then you can twist it off easily. the nozzle is very strong and you can use a little bit of force if needed. Overall, the olives sound better than the comply tips but are not as comfortable. Isolation i think is good on both olives and comply tips. The olives are definitely worth buying if you dont have them. Pros: -good enough comfort -sound -last a long time and washable Cons: -decompress with force and rather quickly -some dont compress well

Yes

Used these with my UM3x and the sound is much improved (I was using the Standard size Complys). The sizing was a problem for me though. I originally went with the mediums but sound was leaking out. The large size is wider than the mediums (same depth though) but also has more give (squishy) so it fills the ear canal much better. Earphone Solutions was nice enough to send me the large free of charge since the mediums didn't fit me well. For some reason though the tip in my left ear still feels like it is going to fall out (it never does) and I keep on trying to jam the thing in further. If you have that problem be careful not to push it in too far because I found it compresses the tip at the end against the ear canal and closes off the nozzle (need to pull it back some). Pros: Better sound than the stock Complys with Westone Monitors Cons: Hard to find the right size at first

I bought a pack of the medium olives to use on my Westone UM3x. I was using the larger complys and read alot on the forums that these olives would sound nicer. After speaking to the customer service rep at Earphone Solutions decided that the mediums should be a good fit. After receiving it though, they don't squish down as far as the complys and they ended up not fitting my ear as well as the larger Complys. I find myself fiddling with them alot when I have them on trying to get a good seal. In truth it is hard for me to rate since they don't fit me well. I may have to order a set of small ones, but they aint cheap. Pros: Cons: Difficult to determine the right size for those coming from Complys

1st of all, these foam olives arrived in a plain unmarked baggie with zero identification, so I don't even know if they are genuine Shure Foams. I've used the yellow foamies for a couple of years with excellent results, but these olives offer absolutely minimum isolation, and very poor audio fidelity from my E3's. I've gone back to the modded triple flanges, and haven't even opened the bag these came in since!! Not a good buy, for sure. Pros: Nothing Cons: No isolation. Poor audio quality. Were not delivered in genuine Shure packaging! Who makes these?

Merchant Response:

Dear Customer, Yes, they are genuine. We buy the Shure eartips in bulk from Shure in packs of 1,000 and then we bread them down allowing us to offer a lower price than you would get for the small retail package. Eartips are very personal as you are trying to match your anatomy with one of the sets. Size, shape and material will determine your preference but it's a process that requires trying due to its nature. I get great sound with the PA910-M and my Westone 3. Although I find myself using more the ComplyTips Short. Again, it's a personal choice. Thanks for your feedback and feel free to contact us at 1-321-939-0228 or 1-888-473-9661.

These are definitely too large for me--I thought they would be the same, or very similar, size to the Complytips but these are definitely bigger. I also think the Complytips are softer than these and less prone to make your ears hurt if you get larger Complytips than the one you need. Otherwise isolation is good and these seem quite durable. Pros: Cons:

Merchant Response:

The PA910-Large are ideal for those that have tried the other sleeves and still can't get good bass because that would be an indication that the seal is not good in which case the low frequency is what leaks. To correct that a wider sleeve such as the PA910-Large should help most people with this issue without adding length to the eartips since the PA910 are all the same length but different diameters. Also keep in mind that you can squeeze them really hard before inserting them but they are definitely not for everyone. Mostly for people with wider and shallow ear canals. Thanks for the review!

A failed experiment with a happy ending...

Yes

I originally purchased the Shure Olives for use on my Sennheiser IE8's. Experiment #1: After removing the core I fit the Olives to my IE8's and had a listen. Unfortunately, the results weren't what I was looking for. The Olives did help with isolation, however they reduced the soundstage and had an unwanted dampening effect on the highs. A waste of time and money?? Not exactly... At the time, I also owned a pair of Klipsch S4's. I happened to notice that the core diameter of the Olives looked like a match to the nozzle of the S4's. Experiment #2: test them on the Klipsch. I pulled out my faithful pair, removed the stock silicone tips and fit the Shures with minimal effort. I plugged them into my iPod Touch, rolled the tips and fit them in my ear canals. I could tell instantly that they sealed as well, and possibly better than my favorite oval tips. I flicked through my song list and started playing a number of my favorite songs. I immediately noticed a difference. The highs weren't as aggressive, the mids seemed more defined and the bass was still thumping as hard as ever. Some owners of the S4's have had issues with the highs being sibilant or overly aggressive, I didn't hear them that way. For me they were just a little bright with the stock tips. Now, with the Shure olives the highs seem to have balanced out nicely. The mid range is more noticeable as well, perhaps because the highs aren't as prevalent. Whatever it is, they work. They isolate well, they fit comfortably and they have really balanced the sound of my S4's. Win #1 The following week I received a pair of Etymotic ER-4P's which have a nozzle size similar to the Klipsch. I tested them on my 4P's as well.. Same great results. Win #2 All in all, I'm very satisfied with the Shure olives. They offer great comfort, superior isolation and when used properly (with the core intact), can have a minimal, but sometimes welcome, influence on the sound of your IEM's. Give them a try. Pros: Comfort and isolation. Cons: Overpriced

I purchased these based on another review saying these were better than the comply shorts. Unfortunately, these are a little smaller than the comply shorts and don't fit snuggly in my ears. I do like that the foam doesn't seem as porous, so they last a bit longer. Next time, I will go with the mediums. Pros: Foam is very comfortable. Seems to last longer than comply shorts. Cons: I thought smalls would be comparable to the comply shorts, but they are even smaller.

Best fitting foam sleeves by any manufacturer! Compatible with Shure and Westone earphones and also some others. Wipe with moist towel to clean. Must try on the size for best fit - so far, the Medium size sleeves will fit the best for Shure products but if some earpieces have "short" ear stems, like the Shure SE530 or Westone UM3(X), then it's best to use the Large size sleeves to insure proper fit. Pros: - Offers the best fit amongst various foam sleeve types! - Easy to clean!

I've been using the same pair of Shure black foams for almost 3 months now, so you can definitely do about a year with 5 pairs. The seal is very good with these, resulting in quite a few jumps when people appeared right in front of me without me hearing it! Pros: superb seal great durability very comfortable quite cheap Cons: just a tad bit less comfortable than the ones that come with the UM1

I couldn't fit these black foam mediums in my ears so I can't evaluate the sound quality. I'm just glad I ordered the yellow foam ones as back-ups. Maybe the small size would fit but the black foam is denser than the yellow foam so I couldn't compress them enough to go into my ear canal. Pros: Cons:

These are excellent for bass "blackness" with my Audeo PFE, and nice with my Sleek Audio SA-6 thought they fill the ear a bit too much with those... I may have to get the small tips for them. Pros: Cons:

The fit is shallow so its great for people who do not want a deep fit. The isolation is ok and not as good as other tips. They are very comfortable. They sound signature of my UM3X is darker with these tips. Pros: Shallow fit, very comfortable. Cons:

I love these eartips. They don't hurt, fit well, create a good seal, feel stylish and help make great sound. They rock! I wish I had got these replacements earlier instead of putting up with eartips that didn't fit well, didn't seal the sound in and even hurt after awhile. Pros: Cons:

These foam sleeves are a great fit on the Shure SCL4. Trick is to roll them and then insert it into your ear canal and hold for about 10 seconds before letting them settle in. Makes perfect sound isolation. Pros: Cons:

Better than CompyTips
Location

Yes

These are better than the ComplyTips I have been using for 2 years now. The opening is wider and the finish is smoother. Plus the large size is way wider than all the other foam eartips so if you have wide ear canal the large ones are for you. Regardless of size the medium is better than the standard ComplyTips and the small size is better than the short ComplyTips. Pros: Cons:

Questions on PA910

15 Questions  |  15 Answers

Q.

I was wondering if these will fit the nozzle on the Klipsch Image S4 earphones. I know the Comply Tx-100 do, but they don't seem to last as long. I'd rather not have to do surgery on the ear tips to make them fit though.

asked by Geordie

A.
Tech Support answered:
No. The S4 nozzle is quite wider.

Q.

I am unable to remove the tip from my Shure earbuds. They won't twist and I can't roll them off. I'm afraid of puling too hard and damaging the earbuds. Is there a trick to removing them?

asked by Tony

A.
Tech Support answered:
Shure's recommendation in these cases is to place the earphones inside a ziploc bag and place the bag in the freezer for 5 minutes or so. Then remove the sleeves with an "unscrewing" motion without squeezing the eartip too much.
Q.

Do these fit the Klipsch S4i models?

asked by josh

A.
Tech Support answered:
Yes :)
Q.

Do these cut the higher frequencies? i have tried the comply tips and they seem to cut the higher frequencies more than a silicon tip does. Are these going to have the same effect?

asked by josh

A.
Tech Support answered:
These are made of foam, just like the Comply Tips. When compared to the Comply Tips, the PA910 offers a wider diameter.
Q.

Hello,
I wanted to ask, if you could tell me what the length and diameter of the small, medium and large sizes of these eartips are? Or you could maybe recommend which size to get? I own the Westone 4R's. The tips that best fit me are the large soft flex sleeves (not sure if that's how they are called) and the one of the comply foam tips. I have attached an image, so you can see which one I mean (the ones I have circled in red).
I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

asked by Svetoslav

A.
Tech Support answered:
No exact size match because the LARGE PA910 is actually wider but as short as the SHORT Comply. And the MEDIUM PA910 is very similar to the SHORT Comply in diameter and length. If you have a wide ear canal and shallow, get the LARGE. If not, get the MEDIUM.
Q.

do these fit the Klipsch X7i? Thanks!

asked by Chlegend

A.
Tech Support answered:
Yes, they will fit.
Q.

Will these fit the Shure SE112 (they only come with comply, not foam, so I'm not sure of compatibility)? Also, is it possible to order a pair of each size so I can figure out the correct size?

asked by Claudia

A.
Tech Support answered:
Hi Claudia,
The foam sleeves are compatible with the SE112 because all Shure models now share the same nozzle size.
Unfortunately each bag of sleeves only comes with one size.
