Product Care & Use

How long will my Comply ear tips last?

The lifespan for all Comply Foam ear tips tips depends on use and averages 2-3 months per pair. How you use the tips, body chemistry (earwax, oils, etc.), and the environment will affect how long your tips last. Replace when the tips start to flake, tear or lose their memory foam properties such as expanding too quickly. Tips will deteriorate if exposed to alcohol-based cleaners, hand sanitizers or lotions. Colored tips may fade with time, this is normal and does not affect performance.

How do I remove my Comply earbud tips?

While every earbud is unique, generally there is a recommended method to removing your ear tips. 1. Pinch both sides of the tip near the base using your index finger and your thumb. Prevent pealing the foam with your finger nails to avoid the inner core separating and sticking to the soundport. 2. After you have a firm grip, pull the tip straight off the device to remove entirely. 3. If you have questions or concerns regarding your tip removal, please contact our support team customer@complyfoam.com.

How can I clean my Comply ear tips?

If tips are not tearing or deteriorating, you may be able to extend the life of your tips by gently removing ear wax and debris. Do not clean tips when warm and soft just out of your ear. Once at room temperature, either use a Comply™ Tip Wipe or wash the tips in warm water, squish with a soft cloth and air dry before next use. Never use soap, detergent, or alcohol-based cleaners as they will break down the foam. We also recommend that you do not handle immediately after applying lotions or hand sanitizer. The Comply™ Tip Wipe is a dry wipe. Excessively cleaning the tips can decrease the lifespan and cause premature tears. We recommend replacing Comply™ Foam Tips about every 3 months or when they become soiled. Colored tips may fade with time, this is normal and does not affect performance.

How do I install my Comply ear tips?

Ensure tips are firmly installed on the device. Wireless devices may need the tip to be pushed on so the tip is flush with the earbud. After installation, quickly compress and roll the tip with your thumb and forefinger, insert and hold the device in place for a few seconds while the foam comfortably expands to fit your ear canal. Installing tips onto your earphones and inserting tips in your ear canals is easy. Check out this video.

Installation Instructions


Step One

Remove the stock ear tips from your wireless earbuds and install your Comply Foam tip.

Step Two

Firmly press Comply tip onto the soundport. Ensure the tip is secure before use.

Step Three

Once installed, roll the tip between your fingers into a thin, round cylinder.

Step Four

Comply tips don't fit me well. What should I do?

We have designed our tips to fit most customers’ ear canals and be the most comfortable ear tips on the market. There is a small percentage of people we are not able to fit. Here are some options for ensuring the best fit and that our tips work with your ears. Prepping the ear tips for insertions the first step. Quickly compress and roll the tip with your thumb and forefinger, insert and hold the device in place for a few seconds while the foam comfortably expands to fit your ear canal. With our Guaranteed Fit Program, you may need to try a different size. Here is the scale of sizing depending on the issue you are encountering: Pressure or pain – size down Earbuds pushing out – size down Earbuds falling out, especially if happening during exercise or activity – size up Outside noise leaking in or not a great seal – size up. Some earbuds use an APP or software to test for a proper seal. If you find you do not pass a fit test or active noise cancellation is affected, try adjusting the earbuds or you may need a larger size tip. There are times where the all-day comfort and security of the earbuds outweighs passing a fit or seal test. If you are using wired earbuds or IEM’s, you may want to try a different shape. 95% of the population have oval ear canals. Switching to the TOZ model may improve the fit. A purchase on complyfoam.com will always have a guar

Sometimes my Comply foam tips interfere with closing the lid on my charging case. How can I stop this?

Due to the nature of our heat activated memory foam, our foam can expand after being in your ears. A slight squish of the tips as you put them into the charging case should allow the case to close and charging to occur without issue. This may be more prevalent with the size large tips. If the tips have been used often and you experience this issue often, it may be time to change your tips.

Does temperature impact Comply tips?

Our memory foam tips love the heat that your ears provide to create the perfect seal and make them comfortable all day. However, it is recommended that the tips be allowed to return to room temperature if exposed to extreme heat or cold.
