 If you have really sweaty ears, alcohol-based hydrogen peroxide is the best choice for killing bacteria.

If your memory foam tips feel flat, don't worry – memory foam is a good thing! Here's how memory foam memory works, according to Comply:

"…memory effect – or memory – is a phenomenon in which materials tend to recover from distortions induced by external forces after the removal of said force. 

In other words, memory foam ear tips will return to their normal shape once you let go after inserting them in your ear. This memory effect makes memory foam tips very comfortable because they adapt to the shape of your ear canal.”

Are memory foam earbud tips noise cancelling? 

Memory foam's memory effect provides comfort but memory foam earbud tips do not totally block out all ambient sounds or noise. 

So what are the best tips for blocking out noise? The answer is simple: "Earplugs."

Are memory foam earbud tips good? 

Answer: Yes, memory foam earbud tips are good for a lot of reasons. First, they help to reduce noise and create a more immersive experience when you're listening to music or watching a movie. 

They also help to improve sound quality by providing a tighter seal against your ear canal. And finally, they're more comfortable than traditional silicone ear tips because they contour to the shape of your ear canal and provide a snugger fit.

What is the best way to keep ear earbuds from falling out?

Answer: There are a few things you can do to help keep your earbuds from falling out:

- Make sure the ear tips are correctly inserted into your ears. If they're not in far enough, they might not stay in place.

- Try a different size of ear tip. Not all ear tips will be the same size, and you might need to try a few different sizes until you find one that fits well and stays in place.

- Use a cord wrap or clip to keep the cords together, so they don't dangle down and get caught on things. This will also help keep the cords from getting twisted or kinked.

- You can wear an athletic headband or bandana to keep the cords out of your face and to help hold the ear tips in place.

- Choose memory foam ear tips, which are designed for a better fit and more comfortable listening experience.

Is memory foam good for reducing discomfort?

Yes, memory foam is good for reducing discomfort because memory foam has great ergonomic properties that create a custom fit for each individual. 

Memory foam ear tips are especially good for reducing discomfort because memory foam's memory effect allows the memory foam to contour to the shape of your ear canal for a comfortable fit.

Are memory foam earbuds better than other types of earbuds?

Yes, memory foam earbuds are often better than other types of earbuds. Memory foam ear tips provide a better fit than silicone ear tips, so memory foam provides a more comfortable listening experience and also helps to reduce outside noise. 

Memory foam is also very durable, so memory foam earbuds last longer than other types of earbuds.

How do memory foam earbud tips work?

Silicone memory foam earbuds are an open-cell memory foam design that uses a memory effect to create a better listening experience. 

We all know memory foam by its distinctive slow recovery properties, which help memory foam to contour to the shape of your ears for a comfortable fit. 

Memory foam ear tips are specially designed with memory effect in mind, so memory foam earbuds adapt to the shape of your ear canal and provide a more comfortable listening experience.

How long does Comply foam tips last?

Answer: The lifespan of Comply foam tips really depends on how often you use them and how well you take care of them. 

If you use them every day and clean them regularly, they should last for about 3-4 months. But if you only use them once a week or less, they may last up to 6 months or more.

How do you choose ear tips?

The shape and size of your ear canal can be different from one person to another. For example, some people have a deep ear canal while others have a shallower one. 

That's why it's important to find the right type of tips for you before buying them! Ear Tips come in various shapes and sizes so that they will fit into any individual's ears properly. 

The most common types are silicone, rubber, Comply foam, memory foam and hybrid silicone/hybrid rubber tips.

Are ear tips Universal?

No, ear tips are not universal. They are designed for the particular earphones they come with and will not work with other types of earphones.

An example is the Apple EarPods - these have a rounder, more bulbous end that's meant to fit into someone's ears while using standard in-ear headphones like the ones included with most iPhones.

How far should earbuds go in?

Answer: It really depends on the size of your ear canals. For most people, if the earbuds are inserted too deeply, they can cause discomfort and even pain. 

Generally speaking, you should insert the earbuds until they reach the second bend in your ear canal. If you can't comfortably insert them that far, then you need to find smaller earbuds.

How do you remove Comply foam tips?

Answer: There are a few ways to remove Comply foam tips. You can use your fingers to pull them off, or you can use a fingernail if they're stuck on tight. If that doesn't work, you can try using a pair of tweezers or needle-nose pliers. But be careful not to damage the tips!

Does listening to music produce ear wax?

Answer: No, it does not produce ear wax. However, listening to music can cause the ear wax to become soft and more difficult to remove. This is because the sound vibrations from the music can loosen the ear wax, making it easier for it to travel out of the ear canal.

What are the best replacement ear tips?

The best replacement ear tips are those manufactured by Comply. According to this review of silicone-based ear tips, the memory foam ear tips from Comply may be the best replacement ear tips:

"Comply™ Foam Tips made a big impression on me, and I was excited to try new (even better) materials and designs. 

And let's face it; we all know that the best material that the Comply™ Foam technology had to offer was far from ideal. I mean, open-cell foam is a terrible material when used in a direct audio path. Yeah, it's easy to get a fit with open-cell foam and it provides a warm sound signature, but there are drawbacks. 

The most important drawback of open-cell foam is its high mass, which creates a great amount of air compression – especially when you have seven or more drivers in your ear.

The best material for an audio path is, without a doubt, solid plastic. It's lightweight and provides the absolute lowest possible acoustic impedance (greatest sound quality). 

The downside is that getting a good fit with solid plastic is much more difficult. That's because solid plastic doesn't deform around your ear canal like open-cell foam. 

You have to do everything perfectly when fitting a pair of silicone or vinyl tips for best possible sound quality – and if you don't, the sound will suffer greatly. I've seen manufacturers try to solve this problem by creating flanges or rings of silicone to help lock the tips in place, but I've yet to find any solution that works perfectly.

Even after all these years I still get surprised when I get a great fit with open-cell foam. This is why Comply™ Foam Tips are so amazing! The material is thick enough (and not too soft) to provide an easy path for the sound to travel down, yet at the same time it provides a great amount of grip so that it stays in place. It's really magic.”
