First of all you could try to piggyback the medium stock tips on the small ones. I haven't tried this with the Ortofon tips, but the method has been helpful on several occasions when I thought I had a good fit but could maybe use a little more support.

 

Second, if that doesn't work I recommend Sony Hybrids. These are my preferred tips for the e-Q5 (and several other IEMs). They come in four sizes instead of the usual three and you can cut their stem to any length you like. By default their openings are smaller than the stock ones, therefore bass will be slightly enhanced. The more you shorten their stem their openings will widen as they stretch over the nozzle. I ended up with about half trimmed stems and am very pleased with both sound and fit.

i've used the meelec tips from the R1 for the e-Q7s and they work pretty well. though i still don't mind the stock ones so i just use those.

This sounds interesting! So how would that work? Put the small tips on... and then try stretch the medium ones over it?

^ First reverse both caps, then try stretching the smaller tip's stem over the larger one's. If that works, mount the double-stem onto the nozzle and finally flip the caps back over again.

I have finished the burn-in for a few days now and I have spent some time listening to e-Q5. The more I listened, the more I am agree with James that e-Q5 is indeed an upgrade SQ wise over the e-Q7. No a big jump, but enough to tell the difference if one has the time to sit down and A/B them side by side.

The only seller in Europe I know of are www.iheadphones.co.uk. AFAIK they get their Ortofons from Musica Acoustics.

Not surprising as Musica Acoustics is the sole distributor for Ortofon's IEM.

Just tried it myself and it's doable. Of course there's no guarantee that the result will fit you, but it's worth a try:
