I’ve been experiencing something strange with my IEMs and have been wondering if I’m alone.
Here’s the thing… If I use foam tips on an IEM in my ears for a while, when I go back to a silicone tip IEM that I know fits me perfectly, I’m shocked when I try to seat it in my ear and it’s loose and doesn’t fit properly. I’ve needed to move up a tip size to get a proper fit.
I don’t experience this going from silicon to silicone, but I do moving from foam. I’m wondering if the foam is pushing against my ear canal hard enough to enlarge the opening for a while. IT’s worth adding that it appears my ear canal size returns to the proper size over time.
I’m really interested if anyone has experienced anything like this or if I am alone. Would enjoy hearing any of your fit stories (like this topic) you’d be willing to share.
