Rating 4.5 outta 5
Excellent sound isolation
Improve sound quality greatly (especially on new apple in-ears)
Each set lasts about 1-2 months
A little on the expensive side
Can get a little funky with yellow ear wax stains
If your having trouble getting a good seal or comfort issues with the ear plugs that came with your headphones, then the Comply Foam Tips should be at the top of your shopping list.
They took my apple in-ears which I couldn’t get a good fit at all with, from a poor set of headphones, to one of the best sounding cans I have had. Quite a feat.
A must buy !
UPDATE July 2009
The headphone Jack on these broke about 2 or 3 months ago, thus these didn’t last even a year. While some blame must go to apple for requiring a smaller plug to fit the 1st gen iPhone, its still disappointing. Since then I have upgraded to the new Apple In-Ear’s (4 outta 5) which have a much more balance sound, which I prefer. Also there is a lot more competition in the iphone headphone market now, so I would suggest people look at the ultimate ears, or apples offerings etc before the mm50IPs, unless you can pick these up at a hugely reduced price. So in summary I think that 3 outta 5 is a much more realistic rating now. Read More…
