[FYI] Various IEM's tips pictorial comparison (updated Sept 29th, 2011) - Page 23

You can make a DIY hybrid silicon tips by just filling some foam into your silicon tips. I've done it for my Superlux and RE-0, it feels good though I never had any real Sony Hybrids to compare with my DIY tips.

However, unless you are totally sure the stock eartips just don't fit you and the Sony Hybrid just doesn't grab onto the R50 tight enough, I won't recommend you try out any of the above.

 

thanks, i´ll try that. 

i already tried the sony hybrids , and they just get the whole way down on the nozzle, so the nozzle it´s at the border of the eartip. it doesnt happen with a new eartip, but the one i need has been used with a wider nozzle iem so it got a bit wider.

but, why wouldnt you recommend it ?

Just to be safe. You won't want to cut open an eartip for core then realize your Hybrid can fit without it.

well, i tried it, but once put on the nozzle, the core it's much wider, and the hybrids get off.

i also tried it with the complys but i dont get a proper seal. any suggestions? for other tips?

I'm pretty sure that R-50 uses small Shure-like nozzle size, so why don't you try the olives? Some people find them to be quite irritating though, and I had been irritated by it too a few times, but not like everytime I use it, I got irritated. If you're still not happy with it, try making some DIY foam tips using foam earplugs. http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/4062/569976.html?1275656496

 

If you still prefer silicon tips, the only ones that I found to be good sealing so far are bi-flanges of my Atrios and my TDK BA200, so maybe you can look for some aftermarket bi-flanges or tri-flanges, but to me, they aren't the most comfortable but seal really nice and give me good bass, sometimes even better than foam tips.

What about the Klipsch gels, like the ones from the S4? I know they have a small inner diameter, so they might fit R50's. 

 

The tips from the Sleek Audio SA6 might fit as well, and I know that they are very comfortable and soft, but so are the Klipsch tips as well.

You wil have to actually buy a pair of Klipsch to get their ear gel, or try your luck in the for sale forum with a WTB thread.

Actually I think you can buy them off of the Klipsch website.
