Soft material firmly lodged into one's ear canal doesn't really vibrate or resonate. The housings of IEMs do to a certain extent (especially dynamic driver designs), but not the tips. The only parameters here that affect the sound are the nozzle inner diameter, nozzle length, and the refractive/dampening properties of the material (dense silicon vs porous foam) - since the foam stuffed behind the silicon tip doesn't alter either of those parameters, it doesn't change the sound you get with that specific silicon tip.

Alon93 - are those Sony Hybrid tips stuffed with foam?
