This is not a quality product worth discussing.

I bought the original set after the standard silicone versions just wouldn’t stay in my ears. After spending $30 and taking three plus weeks to get to me, I was excited to test them out. A month later I had to purchase a cheap $10 set off Amazon since all three sizes of the Comply version broke. They simply will NOT snap on to the AirPod Pros. Cheap Amazon version though? Still going strong with no issues.
Would be curious to see if these are any better but my first experience definitely left a sour taste in my mouth for the brand.

I tried them all. Same as all of you, the Complys v1.0 popped out. No need to try out the 2.0 as I been using CharJenPro AirFoams Pro but their Form Fit 2.0 fits even better.

True. CNet compared AirFoams Pro to Complys and it favored CharJenPro.

Quite a bit of negative feedback from this company regarding the first GEN product. Hopefully they’re (Comply) is reading through this thread, to understand where others were struggling and what needed to be rectified hopefully with version two.

Can you share link to 'cheap amazon' tips?

I would have liked it, but my outer ear canal gets all dry. I'm not sure what's causing it :(

I replaced Apple's silicone tips with a few different foam ones and no change.

I've got what I presume are the new ones (arrived a couple days ago after months of delay) and I'm quite happy with them. I prefer the silicone tips, but at least the sizes that Apple provides don't fit for me. I bought a third party set of triple tiered silicone tips and they worked in one ear, and the Apple tips worked in the other, so it almost worked but the difference in tips did mean there was a difference in background sound.

So far, these are these Comply tips have worked the best for me.

Its some BS for all of us who spent a whopping $30 on the first gen ear tips and now they expect us to spend that again when they finally release a product that (supposidly) works. Everyone who bought the first gen tips should get the non defective ones as an automatic replacement from the company.

Caveat emptor.

When you say "first gen" anything, you should know you're taking a risk and make your decisions accordingly.

I think the audible difference Between 320kbps and 255kbps is negligible given the music is compressed - especially when you’re listening through in-ears.

I like “Comply“ they make quality products at a reasonable price point. These should make a good addition for those who use wireless headphones...

However, I won’t take the plunge, because the audio quality being transmitted to the device is maxed out at 255kbps. There has been zero improvement in actual “bitrate“ since the original AirPods debuted. You can’t even listen to max quality 320 kbps on Pandora or Spotify...it is limited at 255kbps.

“Theyayarealivin“ wants to talk about lawsuits...well here is a lawsuit for you...
Tidal supposedly offers lossless audio for a premium price...however it is impossible to transmit anything above 255kbps to your ears when Tidal says it pushes up to 999kbps. They are committing fraud on the App Store with those practices and any other streaming app that forces the user to pay a subscription premium to unlock HQ lossless audio should be held to account as well... because it is a lie​
Look for Apple to “gloss” over this tiny little fact when they introduce their over-ear headphones this fall. The gullible masses will actually believe they are buying a superior product, when in fact it faces the same 255kbps bottleneck that every Bluetooth capable Apple device has put in place.

Android has some devices with a superior codec that can transmit above 255kbps, but Apple wants to become a 2 trillion dollar company, and giving their customers the best audio experience in 2021 would inhibit that goal.🤠

Listening to 255kbps audio is no way to go through life, live each day like it’s your last and have no regrets. Pushing 999kbps on (2016) iPhone SE🕺

25 bucks for a pair (only one has the right size) of foam tips? Really??
It’s 3 on aliexpress and are able to snap. Plus you can order the size you need only

I personally am not a fan of my AirPods Pro. I’ve tried different aftermarket tips and still can’t get a good seal, nor are they very comfortable. I bought these flanged ones from Amazon that are somewhat adequate, but I found out the hard and expensive way that jamming things in my ear canal is not pleasant. I’m sure your results may vary depending on your ears.

I teach via Zoom and have my Airpod Pros in for extended runs. They begin to hurt and give me a headache after 2-3 hours of use.

People don't seem to be too fond of the Comply ones and say the customer service/refund process is non-existent. Can anyone recommend others they've found useful?

I contacted them when I had trouble with them popping off. They sent me a credit to order these new ones right away. It was super easy, barely an inconvenience. They actually sent the new generation out to customers who were having trouble ahead of them actually selling them to new customers, so I feel like they did the right thing and if these new ones hold up (seem fine so far) then I’ll continue to buy their products. Sometimes things go wrong. This is a first generation product for a first generation device. Early adopters need to get with the program and understand that the bleeding edge can be painful. It’s really NBD. These are way better than the ones Apple ships as far as comfort goes.

Totally agree with you. I purchased two packs of the originals back in late July as part of a BOGOF sale Comply was running, so I am currently stuck with a pack a half of the older model. I contacted Comply when they sent me an email advertising the new 2.0 version, and they sent me a coupon code for 20 percent off a new pack of the 2.0 version ear tip. Better than nothing I suppose, but it would've been nice if they came through and would have just let me exchange my unopened pack for the 2.0 version.

I ordered a pack of these hybrid tips from CharJen. Perhaps the best of both worlds. I'm looking forward to trying them.

I got these for my AirPod Pros, and it completely solved my falling-out-of-the-ear problem.

Guess that means Apple will start making their own tips like this, and take away the business of the little company that solved the problem.
My guess is that white form simply doesn't stay white very long and that Apple wouldn't want to release Airpods with a grey foam. That could easily save this product from direct competition from Apple. Which doesn't mean that Apple might not find a solution that is better. To some degree the Airpods Pro are a competition to those that sold sealing attachments to the original Airpods.

(Comply also offers products for lots of earphones, not just Airpods.)

I've used Comply foam tips for years, but they remind me a bit of Superfeet insoles. Great product generally, but you always feel that they are 2-3X what they should cost. But they work so well that I'm willing to put up with the pricing. I just got a pair of the Comply 2.0 tips for the Airpod Pros; Amazon had a 20% off coupon, and overnight Prime delivery and free returns, so it was worth giving them a shot. They do snap on, but not quite as securely as the OEM silicon tips; it's easier to pull them off. The fit, at least for me, is better. The Comply's sizing instructions were spot on, too. The Airpod Pros definitely feel more secure in my ear with these tips. Although I've only had one once fall out with the silicon tips, they always sort of felt like they could. Not sure how they compare to the CharJen tips; the hybrid tips look very interesting.

The company is also reading the Comments at its website as well as getting feedback comments from people.
It's amazing how they rushed out a v2 when v1 came out a couple of months ago which tells you how v1 did not do so well.
Some people also posted their comments at other online forums/websites talking about their dissatisfaction of the v1 APP foam tips.

$9.99. They have a silicone outer shell and memory foam interior. They also fit better in the case versus the Comply version.


For $10, I gave these a shot and initial impressions are great! The medium tips fit just like the stock Apple medium tips, they appear to stay attached to the APP, and isolate noise well. The bigger test will be long term comfort and durability, but the first few listens I'm glad I didn't spend 2-3x the price of these
