These are my "custom tips" i made myself. Just a tip on them, if you dont bother to cut the tips to reveal a hole, UM2's tend to send the high frequencies to the foam while you only get low frequency. BASS FREAKS BEWARE, this time you might be overwhelmed. (; My tips however work perfectly. I personalyl love the colors too.

Nice man! Yes, I think half shorter could be better for nice sounding.
Would be great if everybody will post their customs here.

these will do:
Safe Sound Original Soft Foam Earplugs | Mack's | Walgreens

Similar stuff everywhere in drug stores. Just go and check any local one around your place.

Great thread shrisha, thank you for the guide.

I went to Walgreens and bought the purple Flents Quiet Time earplugs. I managed to construct some reasonable tips for my E3c. I tried 1/2 length and 2/3 length plugs and managed to get something that mostly fits. The problem is that as soon as I move the least little bit they start pulling out.

Then I looked at the Walgreens web site and found all sorts of negative reviews of these particular earplugs Quiet Time Soft Comfort Ear Plugs | Flents | Walgreens
I tried them out as just plain earplugs and the negative reviewers are right, they don't stay in place.

I will try again with a different brand. At lest I think I've got the technique down now.
