Got some Comply (as in fly not plea as in pea, I'm English don'tcha know) T100 slim fitting foam tips for my Shure E3c phones and in my experience, they are much more comfortable than the scratchy yellow lug blockers Shure provide, both for short periods but particularly for longer listening.Not sure but I don't believe Shure offer their yellow foam tips in a range of sizes, as Comply do. My ears must be a little less usual as I can't use any of the silicon tips Shure supply as they won't stay in more than a minute before popping out. Only the foam tips stay in place but they really hurt (they're too big). So the Comply tips, with their extra squishy and smoother far less coarse material are much better in that regard. So, if you're ear canals are narrow they're worth getting.Agree that they pick up dirt (and oily skin grease) along with any lint fibres far easier than the Shures so require more regular cleaning and better care. They seem to respond better to washing than the Shures though but don't appear to be as rugged, and that's probably got a lot to do with why they feel more comfortable since their material construction is kinder to the wearer at the cost of increased physical wear and tear. Not a panacea for those with sensitive lugholes. I prefer to wear a set of cans far more than the in ear type.
