You are doing something wrong.  Westone IEMs are the easiest to fit.  Read the manual on how to insert a tip.  Use foam complys tips with W3.  Best fit and sound.

Some people find they seal with a shallow insertion but if pushed in too deep then the seal is lost.  So, I say to start inserting them 1mm at a time, until you find a spot where the tips grab the walls of the ear canal without falling out, with a concurrent drop in ambient sound coming in (so do it with music off maybe).

I'd imagine it'll either be comply, or the star/tru fit tips.  Either that or got them reshelled.

Nothing the matter with longevity - I thoroughly enjoyed my W3 during its stay in my collection - raw, rough and rowdy little IEM
