Default Looking for Sony Hybrids shipped to or sold in Canada

My MEE M6's are really uncomfortable with the stock triple-flanges, and a review I read recommended the Hybrids. I couldn't find them on amazon.ca, and amazon.com wouldn't ship it outside the US. Does anyone have any suggestions? It would be much appreciated.

Turn down the volume when playing music. Your ears will thank you.

You can find them on eBay for cheap.

You have a point there but how could I tell whether they're genuine?

Have you tried a Sony Store? They were selling the Sony tips at the one in Niagara Falls last fall. There's one in Hillcrest Mall (according to the SonyStyle web-site).

I'm on the sony style website, and I can't find the tips. It's not under Accessories or Earbuds so I don't know where else to look...

Try the actual brick&mortar store. That's where I saw them. I seem to recall both black and white were in stock.

Here's the Canadian version of sYlt's eBay link.

Thanks. I'll be sure to check out the Sony Style at Hillcrest.

Sorry, can't help you on where to buy them, but it looks like you may already have a solution.

Good luck with them, they helped out a ton for me !

I can sell you mine for a few bucks. I only used the XL size once. Not sure what shipping would be though.

Thanks for the offer but I doubt I'll be able to get a good deal from outside of Canada, reason being high tariffs (imposed by the federal government, most likely to discourage us from not buying local) and shipping costs.

But wait, since you aren't a registered seller, maybe I wouldn't have to deal with these pesky tariffs...

Yeah I'm not familiar with shipping to Canada but I could certainly write that it's a gift or something along those lines. Let me know.

I've apparently misplaced the XL size tips, which size tips do you usually use? I can probably hunt them down though.

^ Heya Machiventa: Actually, I think for the Sony Hybrids, the sizing scheme is as follows for their retail packaging:

SS, S, M, L If you look closely at retail pack product photos you can make out the sizing breakdown on the cardboard.

No XL to be found, at least in none of the packages I have bought. If you actually do have XL Hybrids and can find 'em, I would buy em from you The large is quite OK for me, but I suspect an XL Hybrid would be ideal.
