Please tell me what tips those are? Can you PM Me please

Those are the Shure grey Flex Tips. I have owned my ER-4Ps for literally 15 years and have tried many tips over that time. For me, the Flex Tips are the most comfortable, and sound about the same as the Ety triple flanges.

Thanks for the recommendation. Have you ever had problems where the Shure tips have started to come off as you've removed the ER4 barrel from your ear? I had that happen with some other tips in the past and keep going back to the somewhat-uncomfortable Ety gray triple flanges.

my life saver when in doubt is http://www.complyfoam.com/  you use the comply tip finder menu and just check that whatever tips you were planning to use come from IEM where comply recommends size 100. that's the size for Ety tips and the smaller size they have.

here for example, if you're have no experience with shure tips, you can go and see that indeed most shure products you can try, go with size 100 comply foam tips. so you can get them with little fear that they'll come off.

I have not had that problem. The Flex Tips are soft rubber, and stay on the Ety stems quite well.

Hi guys, nowadays I'm looking for budget source(s) for my new ER4S. Any suggestion? (It can be clip+/pa2v2 or just fiio x3 etc.) Actually it should be best-for-price, hope you will share your ideas.
