I have been less than blown over by the x10 since they replaced my Goldring ns1000 and Grado sr60 About 6 months ago. I have been in the mind to swap back to an over ear design but in a last attempt to see if there was anything I could do without hurting the wallet I got some comply tips to try and my god the difference! I was never completely sure about the fit of the bundled buds and switchingto the comply tips has made the x10 sound so much better. More detail, punchy bass and vocals sounding much more natural.
I would urge anyone with a pair of x10 to try the comply tips; sound is better, isolation is better and for me they are much more comfortable. Think I have saved myself some money! Although there is the thought of a portable headphone amp......

Hi Bay 24, with the comply tips its all about getting a tight fit to keep the ear canal sealed. this inturn allows a much higher quality bass and stops more of the outside noise. another tip is to use a slightly bigger comply tip, but open your mouth before you put them into your ears. this allows the ear canal to openup slightly creating an even better seal when your mouths closed and once again some great bass.

They are brilliant! I don't understand why more in ears don't come with them. I find them so much more comfortable than other buds.

I'm having custom gels made next month for mine

Your post about getting some of those was what made me try the folly tips! I do lie the idea of the custom gels but £90 for a pair of headphones I got for £120 a while ago was a bit much for me. Let us know how they are when you get them!

I'm a big fan of Comply tips and would recomend them to anyone who uses any type of IEM earphones. Better sound isolation, better comfort and they never come loose in your ears.

They may seem expensive but they can last for months (maybe even years with care). My tips for using them (no pun intended) is to make sure you clean yor ears every day and when they do eventually get dirty don't throw them away just clean them in some soapy water (fairy liquid) then rinse them out and let them dry and they'll be as good as new.

I am about to decide whether to replace my Shure E2C's and have looked at these but they do seem expensive. Are they really that good and when it says 'foam' does it mean the traditional type 'foam' or the more rubbery stuff that is now described as foam that seems more washable?

I am looking at some Beyerdynamic DTX101'S and also some SoundMagic E10 which I'll probably use as a spare pair or for travelling. I have found the right Comply tips for the SoundMagics but notthe Beyerdynamic. Ws kinda hoping they would be the same ones as for the Shure so I don't have to buy two....

Got them in properly now! Needed a mirror really.

First thoughts... They're comfy. Very comfy. Isoalation isn't a night and day step up from the gels that were included, but is a touch better (Paulq - the included ones are the rubbery gel types). They certainly stay in place better than the included tips too.

Klipsch X10 are pretty crap, and Comply suck.

My 10 pence on the matter.
