Oh wow, that's pretty neat. I've never been able to keep earbuds in my ear either, or enjoy the feel of "in ear" earphones. Interesting solution.

How do you stick that goop in your ears without hurting them? That sounds rather painful, actually.

What would you consider way too much? I am just getting sleeves, but I found them to be an entirely reasonable price.

yea, I can not stand ear buds because they always fall out. I love my in-ear headphones, but they start to have irritating pressure points if I wear them for more than an 1.5-2 hours. so I decided to get some custom tips for mine so that they will not have any pressure points.

I went to an audiologist and had them do it. it is not painful at all, the pink stuff is a soft two-part silicon that they mix and inject into your ears with a syringe type thing. it is cold for a few seconds, and you can't hear well while the molds are setting, but they only have to be in your ears for about 5 minutes before they are set up. The process was not unpleasant at all.

for almost two years I have had the Etymotic Research hf2's:



I love them, but like I said, they can start to be uncomfortable sometimes after prolonged use. So i decided to get some of the custom soft sleeves that ACS offers for them:



I should get them some time in the next month.

Just sleeves? Oh ok, that isn't bad then. The full on custom ones like from sleek audio are 700.

I did consider getting some full customs. they can be had for as low as $300 which seems pretty reasonable to me.

the sleeves were only $100 though, and I am happy with the sound quality of what I have, so I went with that option.
