As of April 16, Best Buy will become one of the first major retail partners to offer the latest line of audio accessories from the technology-leading Comply™ brand. The new Comply SmartCore™ line of foam ear tips features superior sound, fit, and comfort making the buying of premium quality ear tips a “grab-and-go” convenience for audio enthusiasts, athletes and casual consumers alike.

Made with patent-pending SmartCore technology and featuring specially designed shapes, the Comply SmartCore line securely fits most earphones on the market. That means Best Buy and other retailers can save coveted customer service resources and peg space, while satisfying customers in search of superior audio accessories.

“We are thrilled that Best Buy customers can now upgrade their music experience with the new SmartCore line of Comply Foam Tips,” said Thad Olson, president of Comply. “The audio quality and technology available in today’s earphones is astounding and now music fans, athletes, and road-warriors can unlock the full potential of their earphones by upgrading to Comply Foam Tips, which offer enhanced acoustic performance, stay-in-place fit, and super-soft comfort.”

Just like all Comply tips, SmartCore tips use proprietary memory foam technology that is body-heat activated to conform to the unique shape of an individual’s ear canals. This dynamic, custom fit ensures earphones stay put, while sealing in all frequencies for a fuller sound.

Plus, the breathable memory foam provides all-day comfort by eliminating the irritation and fatigue often associated with traditional rubber ear tips.

Comply SmartCore Foam Tips come in three easy-to-choose-from styles:

  • Comply Audio Pro with WaxGuard™ blocks noise from the external world, without raising the volume, and the integrated WaxGuard prevents earwax and debris from getting into the earphones’ sound port.
  • Comply Sport Pro with SweatGuard™ features a stay-in-ear grip designed to hold on and not let go until your workout is done—no matter how much sweat you work up along the way. Integrated SweatGuard protects the earphone by keeping sweat & debris out and maintains a clear path for enhanced sound.
  • Comply Truly Wireless Pro with SweatGuard™ offer the same patented technology and quality in a game-changing design for “truly wireless” earphones and devices.

As a value-add for consumers, the new line also features Sport Pro editions designed for Beats by Dr. Dre earphone models including the recently launched BeatsX and Powerbeats3 Wireless, and Jaybird earphone models including the Freedom, X3, X2, and BlueBuds X. Best Buy will carry these online for the convenience of Beats and Jaybird customers looking to replenish their earphone tips with a high quality foam upgrade.
