I did a search on this and thought that it would be a good idea to compile a list of which retail replacement tips work on specific IEMs. Has this been done before and I didn't see it? I have a pair ER6i and Marshmallow which I would like to get replacement tips for. Suggestions?

I feel foolish - that was pretty simple. Thanks for the response.

Have the ER-4P, ER-6, Marshmallows. Replaced the tips on my ER-4Ps with the Shure E1/E3/E5 tips. Replaced the tips on the Marshmallows with Shure E2 tips. The Shure E2 tips have a much bigger "hole" than the E1/E3/E5. I left the ER-6 stock since they are comfortable, but the Shure E2 tips would fit those too. Not sure about the ER-6i though.

danieln, do you like the sure tips more than the stock Marshmallow tips? I really don't like the stock tips on them.

My foam tips on my er6is are getting dirty and want to replace them with something possibly a bit wider in diameter. My left ear canal may be bigger than my right as I can never seem to get a good seal.

Yes the Shure E2 tips are a vast improvement in comfort vs. stock for Marshmallows. I think the exact name was Shure Super (or Extra??) Soft Flex tips. Got them from bhphotovideo.com.

For your different ear scanal size problem, you might want to consider getting 2 pairs in different sizes...
