    These sound fantastic - Try foam tips!

    The ear tips that ship with these headphones detract from what is otherwise, a really great sounding product.(I should have knocked off one star...Apple should ship these with optional foam tips for those that can't get along with the silicone ones!)
    Initially, I could not get the silicone tips to seal properly and the phones sounded truly awful! Fortunately I had a pair of memory foam tips laying around from a previous set of headphones that fitted and the difference was stunning.
    'Comply Whoomp' foam tips are advertised for use these headphones. The foam tips sound so much better than the silicone ones, I am sure there are other makes that will also fit. Buying new tips is adds to the initial cost but the difference in the sound is well worth it.
    To sum up, if you can get the seal right on these phones they sound 1000% better. (Better than headphones that have cost me twice the price and have had 5 star reviews!)
    Twin drivers; 5Hz to 21kHz, great balanced sound...bargain! (and I never thought I'd ever say that about a bit of Apple kit!)
