I have the hf2s and I actually use the silicone 3 phalanged tips (in the picture) which fit my ears very nicely. I don't understand how anyone uses the foam ones, they just won't fit in my ears!

I actually bought my hf2s for £70 so these hf3s seem way overpriced. Not sure the added volume control is worth the premium.

@WestHej I'm actually the other way round: phlanged tips don't fit my ears comfortably at all so foam tips are better, though better again are Etymotic's gliders:

I do have a custom mould as well, but I generally use the gliders if HF2s when out and about as they can be pulled out my ears more quickly when I need to speak to people.

@Hugo - It's interesting how you say that you 'couldn't find any difference between the hf2 and hf3 headsets in terms of sound quality'. Yet the hf2 scored 8/10 in sound quality, and the hf3 got 9/10...

Just saying.

Have a good one!
