dude...I have like 30 tips. I have tiny baggies that I use to try and keep the sizes in. Some of them dont have mates. some of them are so cheap that they get warped and I cant tell which size they are. The hybrids have that color coded kneck that is nice for mating. My R02s came with similar tips. of course the R02s had a barrel separate before I had 2 weeks use on them so they aren't int he rotation right now...but the tips are . I glued the barrel but dont trust it.

lol...I personally find these to be the most comfortable tips I have tried. They are condom thin and I can wear them in my ears for many hours without fatigue. The also seal quite nicely for me with the 2 IEMs I used them with - the Hippo VBs and the Panasonic HJE900.

Still, just my own opinion, so YMMV...only thing I can say is try em yourself if you are curious...

cheers,

Agreed, very comfortable also they most likely will tighten up the bass/tame highs of whatever IEM it's used on.

They're comfortable, but they don't seal well ime which leads to weakened bass response and poor isolation compared to other silicon tips

No no, lestatar is very much right. You want a thin condom.

The VB have the same ~5mm nozzle as most other dynamic driver IEMs out there - most tips will fit (Sennheiser, Head-Direct, Panasonic, etc). But yeah, the Sony Hybrids and the UE Super.Fi tips are the best, IMO.
