Can't you use the little braille dots on the back of the strain reliefs?

I like the redundancy of doing both.

Is $99 worth it for these?

If your coming from ZA Basso?

I just picked up four (4) pairs of Auvio (RadioShack) silicone replacement tips for my Yamaha EPH-100s.  They are perfect for this IEM.  I don't have to set and reset them in my ears.  They feel a lot like the Klipsh ovals.  Very simple insertion. Perfect seal.  This benefits me because, despite having large ear opening, my right side is ever so slightly larger than the left.  So with the stock Yamaha flanges, my left ear seats easily and I have to play around with the right to get proper and equal seal.  No more.  The Auvio tips are well made and worth the $10 I paid for four pairs.

 

Great recommendation for these. And getting them on was a breeze.  Quite impressed.  Going to buy up a few more sets and order a backup pair of EPH-100s.

i actually have the same ear fit issue (right side is slightly bigger), tried the auvios, then went back to the stock tips but use the medium-large bi-flange. i found this fit better for isolation. did you try using different sized stock bi-flange tips?.. like a medium on the left and a medium-large on right?

My right ear is also slightly bigger, I used to use both small tips, but lost one down the sink(long story) and I found that with the next size up, the right one started to hurt after a while. I now use the foam tips from lostearbuds. They require a bit of force to insert, but fit more securely, and isolation is about the same.

No.  My pride wouldn't let me adopt the asymmetrical approach.

 I did the Lost Ear Buds thing but didn't like their fit on the earphones, and the largest ones he had were still too small for me.

What's that? Can you (anyone) enlighten me please? Thanks!

Before anybody buys these foam tips from lostearbuds, you ought to know that their real size is at least one size smaller than their nominal (stated) size.  So, if medium stock tips have always been too small for you, forget about trying lostearbuds' tips.  Even the large ones will not be big enough for your ears.  See here Alberto's and other reviews on them from Amazon.com:

Those issues are discussed in this thread also.  You can search for "lostearbuds" and you will find.  "putente" is the person who introduced everyone else to those tips, in this thread.
