I have a few questions.

I'm going to order the hybrid cable from Forza AudioWorks for the SD-2. Which connector do I choose, the L or Straight?

As for ear tips, which is better? Comply or Sony Hybrid.

If the Sony, are there any authorized US dealers on eBay?

I think you should buy the straight connector (I have the same problem actually) as the stock cable.

Just making sure we both were talking about the 2-pin. I have no problem with the stock cable in terms of fit. I only want to upgrade it to a better cable for sound quality.

Yes, me too. I suggest you to buy the copper one if you need slightly more bass and the hybrid if you need more extended highs. I have a problem of harshness but I think it's to do with my ear canal. I'll buy the copper one. If you feel the highs should be more open, forward and clear/clean, the hybrid should be good. I would buy it myself if I hadn't this issue.

Where do I select straight connectors? I only see options for L shaped. I like the highs as is, bass I could use a little more. Wouldn't the hybrid clean up the highs and add a little more bass?

Just email them and ask any question, as I did. The hybrid, according to Matt from FAW, doesn't boost the bass at all, perhaps making it cleaner but not boosted. The highs will be more present overall, due to the quicker stream of highs provided by the silver of the cable. If you need a flatter and airier response I would go for the hybrid. More bass and slightly less highs --> copper. But anyway.. ask Matt for any doubt you have.
