if I remember right the shure stuff has smaller nozzles than most. I know the shure olive foam tips I had were a bear to get onto most sets. Maybe try the triple flanges from meelectronics?

According to the Comply site, the Shure E3C takes their T-100 tips, and the Sennheiser CX500 takes their T-400 tips.

My GUESS is that those Shure tips won't fit your CX500.

these are shaped almost just like the shure. three gradually larger flanges

oh, gotcha. they have it but it is flush instead of extended. just means that the shures have like 1/8" deeper insertion potential.

thats what she said.

jeez, I dont think I have said that in like 10 years, but it just seemed right.

for the shure tips, you can possibly stretch them if you are dead set on those. I fit shure tips on plenty of other headphones with some fine tip needle nose and extra effort.
