Memory foam for Hippos?
 
I like my Hippo VBs but don't care for the rubber tips for of the three available sizes, none keep the right phone in place. I'm wanting to switch to memory foam. In checking Comply's website, however, Hippo isn't a listed manufacturer.

Any suggestions?

According to this post by dfkt http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...0&postcount=37 a standard 5mm tip should work. There's quite a bit more in that thread about how to get VBs to fit properly so opening out to the full thread should give you more information.

You could also try your hand at making your own custom memory foam/silicone tips. http://www.ahkang.org/audio/IEM_foam_mod.html

I use these about 60% of the time and really like the isolation, comfort and low cost. It took a little to find the right length to trim the earplugs and which size to punch the hole but the materials are inexpensive and the experiments only cost a few dollars.

I'd like to try this Comply set, but have no idea as their size. AMZ does offer a compatibility chart, but Hippos aren't listed. What to do?

On comply's site I found hippo vb under "crossroads" the only ones listed are the S-400, T-400, Ts400 and Tx-400 http://www.complyfoam.com/ Just go to their site, click "Comply™ Tip Finder" (upper left side in orange/red color drop down), then click crossroads, scroll down to the vb's.

Edit: Edit: BTW you can buy 3 pairs from comply direct for the same price and have them all the size you need VS the amazon link you provided states 3 Pairs, S/M/L
