    Reviving this old thread rather than starting a new one. I have a set of Ultimate Ears 5 pro that I like and I don't see a need for an upgrade, they are really for walking around or for travel where the source is usually playing MP3s (still have not found the energy to rip my 1000+ CDs into FLAC...). However, I tried all kinds of tips/ sleeves and my left ear is just a trouble maker, they all either don't seal or just fall out. I was looking for options to customize ear plugs and came across a few DIY attempts to make them with silicone earplug material. That will cost a fraction of the professional deal and seems to be about the same thing. Has anybody tried that? I am trying to keep my IEMs as well as my ears intact....

    Otherwise, you could always try comply.

    I used to roll with the UE TF10's which are known to be - big - and that worked out kinda good with the comply's.

    But i have since then stopped using IEM's completely andn ow only use Circum and supra's.
    And sold off most of my gear to finance other hobbies, like this. I found my perfect matches (for the time) and i'm very happy with the phones i chose. So.. now i'm spending the money on something more usefull for work.. or so i tell myself.

    Have you tried running the UE5s through a decent portable amp? If not, you should give it a try. May breath some new life into those IEMs.

    I have Bowers and Wilkins C5 and I am very happy with them. I use them for music,movies,and gaming on my iPad. Ok let's be honest almost exclusively gaming. Like infinity blade When I originally got them I used them for music and heard things I never heard and felt like I was right there. Really awesome!

    The jack plugs into the device you are using to listen to your music.

    That is my level of knowledge. I know the jack and that's about it. Good luck.
