Looking for IEM for mainly ambient/electronic music: single-flange, (preferably) shallow fit, non-fatiguing, comfortable, and easy-to-purchase (Amazon) replacement tips

My price limit is $125. Shallow fit isn't necessary, but I do find shallow fit IEMs much more comfortable over the course of eight hours than deep insertion IEMs. Because I'd be using these IEMs for all-day listening, I would prefer a non-fatiguing sound signature and a high degree of sustained comfort (hence single-flange, silicone tips).

 

I mostly listen to electronic/ambient music. Randomly I'll listen to some J-rock, indie/punk/brit rock, or hip hop, but mainly it's instrumental electronic stuff like Solar Fields or Blackmill.

 

I also tend to lose tips a lot, so I need replacement silicone tips to be available on Amazon. I have the Brainwavz B2 right now and I got screwed because the only replacement tips are Comply memory foam (I hate them).

 

Right now I'm considering the Phonak Perfect Bass, or the Hifiman RE-400. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The key to tips is to use the Comply fitting tool to find out which comply tips fit your 'phones. Then look at other headphones that use the same Comply tips. From that you will know what other brands of tips might fit your 'phones. For example, the Brainwavz B2 take the Comply T100. The Comply T100 fits a HUGE number of IEMS, including IEMS from Etymotic, Shure, Westone & Klipsch. That means that any tips from Etymotic, Shure, Westone & Klipsch will fit your B2's. What I'm trying to say to you is that your B2s are actually one of the MOST flexible IEMs on the market for choosing tips.

Oh, good point. I'll look into that.
