My tips just arrived in the mail, today. I ended up paying $12.99 +2.75 for shipping to Pennsylvania in the United States for the 3-pack of Dekoni Bullets Mercury tips, which is slightly more than the $15 that I usually spend for COMPLY T-400s through Amazon. The Mercury tips have a 4.9mm inner diameter. To figure out which size is compatible with your IEMs, check their sizing chart: http://dekoniaudio.com/bulletzfitchart (all it took was a quick google search to find that). INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: These seem like decent quality tips, though I haven’t had much time to wear them yet. The shape is almost identical to the COMPLY T-400s. I would say that they are as comfortable as my COMPLY T-400s with some minor differences in composition. The foam for these tips is denser and slightly rubberier than the T-400s. This could be a sign that the foam is more durable that the Comply T-400s, but I won’t know until I wear them for a few months.
The foam does not compress quite as much as the COMPLY tip when I squeeze them between my fingers, and they form a slightly stronger seal with my inner ear when I wear them. They don’t have the same waxy exterior as the T-400s, but the exterior is much smoother. I can see myself wearing either the Dekoni Bulltetz or the COMPLY T-400s comfortably all day.
Again, I think my preference will come down to which tip lasts longer for me, which I won’t know for several months. If you’re looking for some foam tips with a slightly stronger seal than the COMPLY T-series, or you just need some foam tips, right now, I would give them a try. I’ll report back in a few months to let you know if I still think they were worth it.

These have lasted much longer than my Comply tips usually do. They are much stiffer than my Comply tips, so I ended up preferring one size small than I would have used if they were comply tips. After a few months, the memory foam on my Comply tips starts to tear. With these, the only reason I have swapped pairs, after 6+ months, was because they were getting too dirty.
