It is probably individual physiology... I even went to doctor, one of those otorhinolaryngology specialists and he didn't find anything but he did flush my ear canals and told me that they were clean but the ear canal is swollen and if I did stick something inside... like earplugs or similar. When I told him about headphones he just told me don't do this again!

Then I sold Etys...

Right now I just use over the ear headphones and problem resolved.

just get customs and your tip problem is solved, plus the sound is superb. if the budget was higher i would actually recommend westone ES5 or UERM, or if you have the coin, i love my JH13; they run rings around my HD600. I have westone UM3X too and use olives on them, the black comply are good too, but you have to clean the wax out regularly or you will compact it, thats probably what you were doing, along with listening too loud, which causes the wax to build up more quickly

for cheap and good headphones though, the fostex T50RP are good with a couple mods
