Yeah, those are the foams we're talking about. They're foam, but shaped more like a silicone tip, and they have a smooth outside surface so they're like a cross between a silicone tip and a foam.

Initially putting the triflanges can be difficult. In time you will learn to pull your ear in the right place and straighten the ear canal. You should have no problem sliding them in then.
I prefer their sound to that of the foams, but I haven't yet heard the olives of Comply.
I just got my er6i's yesterday, and so far I really like the tips. I too work in a plant that requires hearing protection, so maybe that is why I have no problem with these things.
They don't fit nearly as deep enough to be uncomfortable, and seal really well. I swear I can't hear anything with these babies in, it's almost unsettling.
The only thing I am noticing, is that there really isn't much bass, and everything sounds "bright" I guess. Some songs are almost irritating to listen to, if they have a lot of treble. Would switching tips help bring out the bass a little bit, and maybe smooth out the highs (not too much though)
