Default Lost a tip - now what?

Yesterday when I took my headphones (JVC HA-FX55) out of my pocket I realised that one IEM tip was missing. I still have the smaller/bigger ones supplied but the medium ones are the ones that fit best. What can I do? Is there a place where I can find such a tip?

If you run a price bot, you'll find new JVC HA-FX55 for $6.31, do you think that new tips & shipping will beat that

...I hate you all Americans...$6.31...

Seriously, you can't get them cheaper than 35$ here in Switzerland so I guess that I'll have to buy new phones. Maybe some CX300s...

You can maybe make some like I did, or use the memory foam tips.

I don't have this earphone, so take this with a grain of salt, but those look like pretty standard tips. From my experience, a lot of ear-canal phones use pretty similar tips to those, and are basically interchangeable. If you happen to have another set of earphones with the same tips, you could try those on, or if you can find a cheap set you could try those. Other than that, you could try to get replacement tips, such as for the CX300 straight from Sennheiser, since I would imagine those fit as well.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
