I assume your asking about equivelant silicone tips. Its hard to say without actually trying the tips for size. I typically use the Comply p foam in a medium size but can also fit the large size of the same style. I found that the Westone star silicone blacks fit well with UM3X and UM2 and i also use the reds which are the same diameter as the black but a little taller, with the W3's shorter nozzle. I started with the largest size silicone at first just because i have always been acustomed to that being the size for me and it felt good but the seal wasent working so well. Once i sized down it really made a world of difference.
I live in Hawaii and while its not international as far as shipping, it can get rather pricey when the only options provided by retailers is 2nd day air. Westone CS told me when i ordered as well as in the past that they use FedEx for delivery and so i expected the cost to be more than the product ordered. Considering the savings over using disposable Complys, i was willing to pay whatever since these tips will far outlast any foam tips on the market and probably be the last purchase of eartips i will have to make. I requested that if at all possible to please send via USPS mail, she stated that she would leave a message and that it was dependent on the shipping department. Three days later i was pleasently surprised to find waiting in the mail box a small package sent from Westone. Yea!! I think it was $4.00 shipped or something. My suggestion would be to call in your order and ask to speak to the shipping department before concluding your order and see if something can be worked out. Usually for small items retailers will make exceptions to shipping policies, hopefully they will for you.
