WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. An eartip, comprising:

an eartip body having an attachment end and an interfacing end opposite from the attachment end, the eartip body comprising:

an inner eartip body having a sidewall extending between the interfacing end and the attachment end, the inner eartip body including a groove formed in an outer surface of the sidewall; and

an outer eartip body sized and shaped to be inserted into an ear canal and extending from the interfacing end toward the attachment end of the eartip.

2. The eartip of claim 1, wherein the groove is defined by a base wall extending between two sidewalls.

3. The eartip of claim 2, wherein the base wall and at least one sidewall of the two sidewalls are arranged perpendicular to one another.

4. The eartip of claim 1, wherein the groove is a first groove and the inner eartip body includes a second groove spaced apart from the first groove along a length of the inner eartip body.

5. The eartip of claim 4, wherein the first groove and the second groove are positioned closer to the attachment end than the interfacing end.

6. The eartip of claim 1 , wherein the inner eartip body further comprises a boundary positioned between the interfacing end and the attachment end, and wherein the sidewall gradually changes in thickness from the first thickness to the second thickness from the boundary to the interfacing end.

7. The eartip of claim 6, wherein the groove is defined by a base wall extending between two sidewalls having different lengths.

8. The eartip of claim 1 , wherein the groove extends around a circumference of the inner eartip body.

9. The eartip of claim 1 , further comprising an internal sound sealing structure extending from the inner eartip body and positioned between the groove and the attachment end.

10. The eartip of claim 9, wherein the internal sound sealing structure is a flange that extends toward the outer eartip body.

11. The eartip of claim 1, further comprising a support structure extending from the inner eartip body toward the outer eartip body

12. The eartip of claim 11, wherein the support structure comprises a plurality of flanges, each extending around the circumference of the inner eartip body and positioned across a majority of the length of the inner eartip body.

13. The eartip of claim 1 1 , wherein the support structure comprises a shell and an inner region filled with air.

14. The eartip of claim 1 , further comprising an attachment structure coupled to the inner eartip body at the attachment end of the eartip body.

15. An eartip, comprising:

an eartip body ha ving an atachment end and an interfacing end opposite from the attachment end, the eartip body comprising an inner eartip body that defines a channel that extends between the interfacing end and the attachment end, the inner eartip body including a groove formed in an outer surface of the sidewall; and

an attachment structure coupled to the inner eartip body at the attachment end, the attachment structure defining a plurality of recesses and including a mesh extending across the channel.

16. The eartip of claim 15, wherein the eartip body further comprises an outer eartip body sized and shaped to be inserted into an ear canal and extending from the interfacing end toward the attachment end of the eartip.

17. The eartip of claim 15, wherein the groove is defined by a base wall extending between two sidewalls.

18. An in-ear listening device, comprising:

a housing defining a cavity and an acoustic opening;

a driver positioned within the housing and operatively coupled to emit sound through the acoustic opening; and

an eartip removably atached to the housing and aligned with the acoustic opening, the eartip comprising:

an eartip body having an attachment end and an interfacing end opposite from the attachment end, the eartip body comprising:

an inner eartip body having a sidewall extending between the interfacing end and the attachment end, the inner eartip body including a groove formed in an outer surface of the sidewall; and

an outer eartip body sized and shaped to be inserted into an ear canal and extending from the interfacing end toward the attachment end of the eartip.

19. The in-ear listening device of claim 18, wherein the eartip body further comprises an attachment structure coupled to the inner eartip body at the attachment end, the attachment structure defining a plurality of recesses and including a mesh extending across the channel.

20. The in-ear listening device of claim 18, wherein the groove is defined by a base wall extending between two sidewalls.
