    Just have to be patient, or if you can get one on the top and one on the bottom, you'll be alright.

    It's the same with the Juliet. Just gotta keep working at it.

    What I normally try to do is put the bottom spacer in, slide the ear stem in, slide the top one in then slip the screw in and tighten without moving the entire assemblage too much.

    do you really need to take the stems off to change earsocks?

    That's my initial thought but figured there must've been a reason. LOL

    All you need is a few drops of water and a dab of soap at the tips of the ear stems. Then it's just a matter slipping them on and off.

    Although to be honest I dunno if water and soap reacts to the X-Metal texture. I only have plasma and titanium framed X-Metals.

    They just use purell at the O Stores. It's alcohol based so it'll evaporate within seconds.
