So you want the part that's between the silicon/foam/rubber tip and the wire to be marshmallow shaped?

Yeah, if that means IEMs thats similar to the JVC Marshmallow tip.









The encircled part is what Im talking about. (I have no idea whats its called, sorry ><) I needed IEMs with that kind of tip since I have small ear holes

Most decent iem's come with at least 3 size tips and small is definately one of the sizes. If the JVC HAFX34B marshmallow fit so well, why not get another pair, they're certainly priced right.

Marshmallow Shaped? Not sure what that means. To me marshmallows are square & blocky. Hven't seem any IEMS with that shape.

Have you looked at the JVC FX-34 Marshmallows? That's what budum pictured above.

@FreeZ5
The OP is budum...

@budum
I agree with walkgood just get another pair of Marshmallows. Their a great value.

btw I don't know of any other headphones shaped like the Marshmallows.

Take a look at the SoundMAGIC earphone line like the PL50 and PL21, they are famed for their sound quality at a very low price. I'm pretty sure they're a lot better than my yucky yellow/gray foam tipped marshmallow. PL21 is about $23 and the PL50 is about $55 and they do have foam tips supplied. Click here to look more into PL50 and click here to see a review on the PL21

Guess the JVC Marshmallow is one of a kind

The PLs has the same tip as a Sennheiser

I had a Sennheiser CX 300 before. The small tip kept falling. The big tip wont fit. The medium tip fit though it was a little uncomfortable.


@WalkGood

Cant...I might just eat them xD



Thanks for the replies....Im still accepting answer though

budum, yes the first picture is a joke, but does show the shape you asked for and the second picture are real iem yellow sponge tips. I have read threads on headfi where people use the same tips on their JVC HAFX34B marshmallows and swear by them.

Oh xD

Anyway, where can I buy those tips? Are they available in common gadget stores or are sold in specific shops? Are they being sold in Singapore?

Some gadget stores may have them, I haven't seen them around me, the ones I have were given to me at an audio show. I'm sure you can find better pricing, but a quick search I did shows: http://www.amazon.com/Shure-EA120-Re...656191&sr=1-48 Although I find the memory foam like comply tips uses better for seal & comfort:

Will both of the above fit in a Sennheiser CX 300? Would be nice if it did so I wont have to buy a new headphone

The T-400 looks perfect


Does anyone know the specific name of that kind of tip?

On Comply's website you can check which model foamie is compatible with which IEM.

If you are in the US, most Radio Shack stores carry the Comply Medium Size tips. That way, if you don't like them, you have 30 days to return them to the store. These fit perfect on the CX300.
Radio Shack also carries the small and large Comply tips, but these seem to not be stocked in most of the stores.

You are incorrect, the PL21 and 50s have foam tips exactly like marshmallow tips. I've owned a PL30 and I received a pair too. The soundmagic earphones are made to be comfortable at all times.
