Yup, even my local headphone shop sales person tried to put them on for me but it keeps popping out. For the couple of times I managed to get it in, the tips of the tri-flange hits somewhere in my ear canal wall or something like that. For now, I'm using a very small foam tip that I order from eBay and it seems to work well for now with some of my iems.
I guess my local store will frown to see me walk into their shop looking for something as I'll always comes out empty handed mostly due to fitting issues.
But, over the course of all this frustration, I realized that I could still enjoy this hobby by sticking with shallow fit iems or something with a small sound bore like the SE535 (with small size olives) I have. With my FXT90, I use medium comply foam whereby the tightness is bearable due to the shallow fit.
An idea of small foam tips that'll fits me is something like what's in the pic on the CKN70.
