Default Double flange IEM Tips JLab J2

I have a pair of JLabs J2 that I use for work. My problem is I have one ear canel just slightly larger than the other so I don't get the outside sound blocking on both ears. I saw on Amazon that they have doble flange pads for the JLabs so I figured I would try a set. I ordered the large size since that is what I use with the regular pads, that was a mistake they are too big. I have noticed an improvement in the detail and the bass in the music reproduction. I am going to order a set of the medium sized and see how those work. Has anyone here had any experiences with double flange ear pads for in ear buds???

I used to use double flange tips on my Fischer Audio Eterna before I got some foam tips. They do isolate better and have better bass to my ears, as well.

I like double flange but unfortunately the insertion depth can irritate my ears. You can get a multipack from the meelec store for a good price.

They're not bad and have a reasonable price. I used their double flange but switched back to foam as the one's I have are one size and eventually I had a problem keeping one in while active sports. I still have them and throw them one once in a while ...

I've used double-flange buds during flights, to block engine noise. Great, but at times they very briefly can "tickle" my inner ear.

I recieved the medium double flange tips and tried them out but they are too small and don't block much of the surrounding sounds, I guess I will stick with the large single flange tips that came with the JLabs J2's.

If you can't return them, you could try out the silicon tip foam mod, I've done it with mine and it does help. http://www.ahkang.org/audio/IEM_foam_mod.html
