Custom ear gels
English

Has anyone had some custom ear gels made by ACS for their earbuds? I'm not quite getting the right fit from my new Klipsch all the time and as it's my birthday coming up I thought this might be a nice indulgent treat for me.

RE: Custom ear gels

Haven't had any custom tips made myself but I just did a search for them out of interest and the ACS ones did pop up with a very good review. I think a massive appeal of them for me (on top of any sound quality improvements) would be that they would stay nice and still in the ear when moving about.

Yep. They should help with the isolation too.

Yup. Got them done for my Shure 530s.

 

They improved the sound and comfort loads for me as even with the large olives, I wasn't getting a 100% seal all of the time.

 

Take some getting used to when first inserting them, but after a while you get used to the routine. (It's a insert, turn, and lock method)

 

You just need to ensure you get really good impressions done.

 

Treacherous path you're walking though as after I got these, I ended up getting a pair of JH Audio full customs followed by a portable amp for my ipod...... Foot in mouth

Just had a look at the JH site. Very nice stuff.
