    Newbie here!

    I read that the Juliet Temple Shocks and Nosebombs have sizes like 15 or 25 or small or large respectively. What does these sizes do to the fit. I know it depends on head sizes, nose features and all.

    I have 15 Temple shocks and looks like a large nosebomb. My question is, will these sizes help in a more tightened fit? My couplers are tight and are OK.

    And lastly, can I adjust the stems? I am afraid I might break them. I have a wiretap and crosslink sweep, and I can bend these to tighten the fit. Will it work the same with the Juliets or any other X-Metal frames?

    Thanks!!!

    Size 25 create a tighter fit than size 15.

    The earstems can be bent but I really, really, really wouldn't do it... Just get bigger t-shox...

    Bending the ear stems would really be a tragedy. If needed, you can even find size 50 T-Shox and mount those suckers in there. That should make them "skull crusher" tight.

    don't bend the stems unless you want to risk snapping them. Unlike other metals, they need a fair bit of force to bend and won't give clues as to when they'll break - they can snap without warning
