I always buy Comply Foam Tips for my earphones. According to Comply they haven’t received a pair of Powerbeats Pro to test. Does anyone have some old ones and know which size will fit? Are there any other brands out there? I usually buy the Comfort line as they keep the earphones clean.

Sorry for the stupid question, they fit properly? Thanks!

Oh and the Pro’s still fit properly in the charging case?
I haven’t gotten them yet. I bought them because someone else recommended them in another thread and started using them on their Powerbeats Pro. He said the tips fit inside the case as well.

I ordered and received them for my Powerbeats Pro. The certainly improve the fit inside my ear and work fine in my case.

The Comply Sport Pro's for the Beats X, Powerbeats 3, etc. work perfectly...

Just in case anyone is interested, I ordered the Sport Pro’s and I think I ordered the wrong size but I didn’t really like the shape. I ordered the Comfort Tips TSX-400 and they also fit. They’re about the same shape as the stock Beats tips but much more comfortable and have the wax guard. I got the medium size, basically similar in size to the tips that are on the Powerbeats Pro’s in the box.

I use these on my BeatsX

Comply Isolation Noise Cancelling Memory Foam Earphone Tips for Anker Soundbuds, KZ ZST, SoundPEATS Q30, Symphonized NRG 3.0 & More, Premium Replacement Noise Reducing Earbud Tips T-500(Large, 3 Pair) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HKIAHE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_YTa7CbHN5QZHC

They work awesome on the BeatsX providing complete isolation. They do nothing for the Powerbeats Pro unfortunately. I found the large size silicone tips provide the best seal. I’m hoping Comply will make tips specific to the Powerbeats because the standard ones don’t work well for me at least.

I think if you were to buy size 400, they would be perfect for the Powerbeats Pro. The 500 series has never fit any Powerbeats.

it's interesting that you bring this up because I just noticed that Comply recommends the T-400's for the BeatsX, but the T-500's fit them perfect as well as the Powerbeats Pro. I Just can't get the foam tip to sit in my ear canal as far with the Powerbeats Pro as I can with the BeatsX. The stock large silicone tips plug my ear from further away so they work better with the Powerbeats Pro design and my ear geometry. I don't think the core size will make a difference in this case.

You're right, they now recommend the 400 series for the BeatsX. But I'm 100% sure that they used to recommend the 500 series for the BeatsX. I have a pair and also some PB3 and I would buy two different series. All I can say is the stock medium tips are great sounding but my ears start to hurt after a while and I bought the Comply comfort tips 400-medium and the sound is great and I find them more comfortable.

Ya but how are they after a while? Foam seems to me it would just soak up sweat and become nasty... lol

Truth be told, they only last say a month and have to be replaced. I keep buying them because they are comfortable and have the wax guard so the PBs stay clean.

Gotcha, so the sweat does become a problem with foam.
