    Awesome, I lost the medium ear tips which are the only ones that fit my ear. Please post back with detailed info about them.

    I bought a set a while ago and they're pretty good quality. I wouldn't say they're uncomfortable, but they're a little thicker than the original. You don't really notice the difference after a while.

    I use monster foamies with the red adapter they're awesome and the stay on in my ear and on the metal tips.

    Yup! I bought these actually a couple months ago and I'm still on my first set, surprisingly.

    Got the tips yesterday. Here are some pictures of the original and the DealiShop side by side. It's clear that the DealiShop tips are NOT the same. It's not bad, but it's not as nicely made. There more transparent than the Apple tips. The fit is a bit tighter than the Apple tips. Over all I am happy because it fits fine and it's CHEAP. Enjoy the pics.

    I lost the earbuds to mine a while back. Went to the Apple Store and asked a guy really nicely. He reached into a cupboard and gave me two sets of mediums and two sets of large replacement buds free. No questions asked. :D

    I'm going to give them a try too. Even though I just got free replacement from apple, I've never been real happy with their hold in my ears. In other words, they often come lose and I have to shove them back in for a tight fit.

    I have the foam stuff. I don't really like it because it get nasty with use and you can't wash it.
