Whichever one works best for you. Why don't you try and see for yourself? I use biflanges myself.

I modded my triple flanges: cut off the stem and the smallest flange. They're great now.

Don't think you can get those. Why not do the same thing I did?

The included/available tri-flange from Shure is oversized and is made that way so you can customize it to your needs. I personally like to trim off the back (largest) flange such that the remaining stem is even with the bottom of the medium flange. This works best for me when using the E4. With the E5 I have to trim the stem even with the largest flange and then trim off the smallest flange.

The most accurate tip according to Sugarfried is the foam. As such, I generally use the foam myself. There are more durable foam tips currently in the R&D process.

This is very personal, but I got the best seal with Comply tips.

I find modded Shure biflange gives best compromise of comfort, performance and durability. I used it on my E4C, then ER4s, and now UM2.

It all depends on what you need. I use the black rubber tips from the E2 which work best for me, I've never really understood the fuss with the foamies. To me the sound like crap, especially the Westone foamies which make me hate my E4's.

Ditto. Complies muffle the sound...IMHO

Only the long ones. The short ones are great.

Normal foamies sound the best for me. Probably won't try the comply tips anytime soon, since they look too much like the ER-6i foamies, and they were beyond painful.

Comply tips are extremely soft, feels like cottons, and I don't see why they would hurt, you can really give them a try
