soundsport wireless fit questions ...

currently trying these out to figure out whether they are worth getting.

as i expected, not getting a good fit with the included tips and i am using the smallest ones which feel like they are too large to work correctly in my ears.

they go in and stay but after a while will loosen. i am twisting them in correctly. the horn on the tip will not nestle itself in and slightly pops out at the very top.

i also have a pair of eytmotic er-4p earphones and use the silicon tree shaped tips which form a complete seal and dont hurt as much.

wanted wireless and easy on/off without moistening the silicone to get them on snugly.

wondering, are there eartips out there that are smaller than the stayhear+ smalls - and will work with these earphones ?

not willing to do custom molded

Re: soundsport wireless fit questions ...

We all have different shaped ears don't we and for some the StayHears just don't seem seem to work well. My wife is one of them. What works best for her are the original Bose IE headphones tips that don't have the wings. Have you tried sacrificing a small pair of StayHears by cutting off the wings? Maybe its the wing that's tipping them outward. Just a thought.

Re: soundsport wireless fit questions ...

not quite to that point yet (changing the stock tips).

just wondering if there are smaller eartips that will fit on the soundsport wireless.

they sound good enough that they may be worth it, along with good play time ...

some other brands i’ve seen have 1/2 moon shaped wings - looks like they would work, but again if the small is too big, then ill have issues.

By the description they don't appear to be, just a replacement for what came with the set.

Re: soundsport wireless fit questions ...

thats not much help.

was looking for alternative ideas before exploring another route (ditching the soundsports for something else or expensive custom ear tips).

Hi zero7404, 

 

I do apologize for the troubles you have had using the StayHear+ tips. As I am sure you know, we offer three different sizes of tips and we recommend users to try each size to see what fits them best. At this time, there are no options available for tips smaller than the size 'small' included with the headphones, and again I do sincerely apologize for this.

 

You are more than welcome to try 3rd party tips, although we do not usually recommend this. However, I understand that every user will have different shaped ears, so it may be worth following up on this idea, and to let us know if you are able to find a tip that fits perfect for you. I do hope you are able to continue using your sound sport wireless headphones and experiencing the true Bose sound.

 

Warm regards,

 

Sam F
