For the last few months I've moved to the E2C Orange Foams. Soundstage is not quite as wide but there is much better distinction in location, it also cleans up the sound quite abit. They don't last as long and are more temperature sensitive but they make the UE SF5Pros sound much better than with any other tips.

The other thing to mention is that they are much easier to put on and are cheaper than the Olives
Shure Orange Foams


i've been using shure orange foams for years now either my UEs, that's include super fi pro and eb, triple fi as well. very clear sounding tips. comply is very comfortable but it does make it sound very muddy.

Finally, got the guts to fit the tiny olive into my TF10.

 

Got a long nose (round) pilers. Stretch for 2-5 mins. 

 

When taking out from the pilers, use my thumbs and quickly "squeeze" into my TF10.

 

Not sure will I be able to take it out from my TF10. Read that it is quite tough and might damage the TF10.

 

Maybe when the tips get physically "spoilt" then I'll worry.

 

Enjoying the comfort fit of the shure olive tips now.

 

I must say, the isolation is definitely better. (I was using the comply TX-500)

I even fit a pair of Olives on my VModa Vibe IIs. Took some work but they are on there now.

 

Used the tip first onto large-ish needlenose method and jammed the tip on. Trying these over Comply T-400s. Less background noise at the gym I am sure. Good seal.
