Hybrids are known for smoothing the highs and enhancing low end of freq spectrum.

Haven`t tried Sony Hybrids yet but by this description I wouldn`t recommend them for ATE.
With ED9 they should be great though.

  They are easily available on eBay. Sony Hybrids are medium-small bore tips made of high quality soft silicone material and would fit to a wide range of earphones thanks to their flexibility. 
Hybrids are known for smoothing the highs and enhancing low end of freq spectrum. They are really comfortable in ear.
 
I am using Sony Hybrids (Small size) on ED9 and from my eartips collection I find these most suitable with ED9. YMMV.

 
I bought two sets from different sellers and I found a difference on the material used on both. One I can say that is not a fake, the other hmmm not so much, they were really hard and uncomfortable. 
 
This is the seller where I got my good ones from http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Pairs-Silicone-Hybrid-Replacement-Earbuds-Eartips-for-Sony-XBA-MDR-DR-Series-/281687360464?

Surely those aren't the original ones, just colored to match appearance. Sony Hybrids can't be so cheap. Even in Japan they cost above $10 for 3 pairs.
In fact, the cheapest I've ever seen online for original Sony Hybrids was from eBay seller 'AkibaShipping' and that was about $16 for 3 pairs. 
 
I got my tips with my XB90EX.

I could be wrong with those, though at least for me they worked well with a pair of Monoprice 9927. On those I tried so many different types of tips and finally found a something that worked. I'll buy a pair from the AkibaShipping store and see how they compare.

Imho I wouldn't be able to tell you. All the sellers of hybrid Sony tips on ebay that come from China/Hong Kong use the same stock picture to show the product.

  Has anyone bought and received from TomBuy yet?
 
I got a pair while it was around $10 (in transit), but at this price I might even get a few more and distribute them as gifts.

 
Well, from the 98.1% positive feedback score, it looks not too bad n seems legit.
 
Note: Using mobile phone to order costs even lesser
