Just a heads up to any of you who joined this drop and picked the Standard size:
IT'S WAY TOO SMALL. Get the Large instead.
Yes I've been using these for years. Get the large for sure.
I dunno, standard fit me. But I know from different earbuds that my ear canals are relatively small.
sure, Standard size might fit you just fine. it is possible, however, that you're not getting the best SEAL.
I always recommend the Large, because you can easily cut one of the flanges if it's too large. seal is still good even without the third flange of the tips.
can't do nothing if the Small size is too small though...
FWIW, I wound up getting the Standard/Small size and find them a VERY tight fit, can barely even get them in, so I can't fathom how cutting the largest flange off a Large would help if even the smallest flange on the tip of those is already too big.
I'd say as a rule of thumb, consider how a Q-Tip fits the entrance to your ear canal; if it's at all snug, go with the Standard/Small size, but if it can rattle around really loosely in there, go Large. (Yes, it's a bad idea to stick Q-Tips or anything else into your ear canal, but I'm talking only about as deep as these plugs would go anyway.)
