If you decide to go this route you may want to check the Shure-Earphone How To Use page. There's a demo on that page I found very useful when I first started using IEMs. TBH it may not be the same one but I just watched it and the basic info is the same. I had a heck of a time getting a good fit and seal before I saw that.

The tips like holding your ear to open the canal and inserting at 90 degrees to the final insertion and twisting them to the final spot made getting a good seal a lot easier. One of the most helpful was showing how to wear them over the ear. Since I started doing that I can put them in and do just about anything and they don't move and the seal rarely breaks.

It felt really awkward and took a long time when I first started. Now it's natural and only takes a few seconds per ear.
