So I have done some light google searching and yeah there are some results on replacement tips for marshmellows but nothing specific to my concern. I have always had problems with inner ear headphones popping out. Even just sitting around. I don't think I have large ears, they seem like they go securely in but they just don't want to stay.

Any one with similar issues with iems?
I like the jvcs but are there tips out there that provide a more secure fit?

Thanks.

Marshmallow tips go stale after a while and don't compress too well, resulting a less secure fit. If I were you I'd try to wear them over-the-ear rather than cable down if you don't already.

If you don't mind moving away from the JVCs I would recommend trying something with slightly deeper insertion (e.g. Meelec M11) or a native over-the-ear fit (e.g. Meelec M6, Soundmagic PL30/PL50, etc.). I don't think I ever tried replacing the tips on my marshmallows since all nice tips are worth more than the marshmallows themselves.
