Default Super Fi 5 quality problems?

Hello all!

First of all Happy new year to all!
I'm more of a "passive member" here, but I think with my little knowledge in the audio department, it is not a big loss for you guys!
But thanks to all the members here for their reviews and comments, it really is a great community for the "audio geeks"!

Anyway, I finally decided to buy my first pair of relatively expensive earbuds a few months ago: the UE Super Fi 5 (the mono driver ones).
They sound great, a lot more balanced than my EP630.
But I could not find a great fit with these: I kind of have an oily skin, the silicon eartips tend to fall off all the time, no matter which one I select. I finally tried the foam tips provided: they fit more or less, but they seem a little too big...
But the most important problem appeared a few weeks back: the sound on one the buds became less loud than the other one...please note that I use them most of the time at home (computer, in bed, but also sometimes in the metro etc).

I sent them back for repair (as they are under 2 years warranty), I suppose they'll send me back a new boxed pair, in a few weeks.

So my question is the following: are there any "known" quality problems with these earbuds? Should I sell these when I receive the new ones, and buy something else? If yes , which one, considering my fit problem as well?

Or maybe it was just bad luck with the first pair, and should simply try to buy S foam tips on it to resolve the fit issue?

I thank you in advance for your help!
