I'm thinking of buying the shure se215 because of their apparently wonderful sound cancellation. This might sound like an idiotic question but does sound cancellation depend on the eartips or the actual headphones? Because I'm looking for something a little less expensive than the se215's

Does sound cancellation depend on the eartips or the actual headphone?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
It only depends on how much density and mass is put in your ears, period. Now, this could mean a metal housing will isolate better than a plastic one, or a vented housing will isolate poorer than a closed one, or a tighter seal is achieved with expanding foam tips compared to thin rubber ones, or that an IEM will isolate more when inserted deeper into your ear than normal, or that an IEM with a larger driver will isolate more than one with a small driver; and so on.
