I am looking to replace the rather ancient foam eartips of my ER-6is. As Etymotic don't seem to supply replacements in the UK or China, I am looking for an equivalent (I can't get on with the flanges). I have heard that Comply T-100s work well, although they are not listed as compatible with the ER-6i by Comply. Does anyone have specific recommendations?

Yes - Shure black olive tips fit ER-6i perfectly, seal better than the original foamies and IMO warm up the sound a bit.

Comply T100 size and Shure black foam Olive sleeves both fit the ER6.  The Shure foam are bit more durable, and when cleaned and washed regularly can last for months -- I use mine everyday, wash them about once a week with warm soapy water, press them dry and pop them back on.  The Comply foam doesn't have as thick a coating on the outside and are a bit more spongy.
