You've dashed my high hopes from Hungaria...
I know what you mean and I'm sorry for that...
I have to say I was surprised from the first minute I unpacked them: they are so stiff, and other than I remember to have read, they don't have any foam characteristic.
Strange, because the guy introducing them here (don't remember who) should have told us. At least somebody made sort of a recommendation, otherwise I wouldn't have bought them.

You're right, the stock ones can be made to work as long as you don't move a muscle.
I have to say that I wasn't immediately happy with the fit (but also not really unhappy). But after carefully and extensively experimenting (I ended with oval M left and round M right) I did find the fit quite well. To give an impression: left fits the millisecond I plug them in, right needs 5..10 seconds of "optimizing" on the high level achieved with the very first plug.
But then they sit like specially made for me, they isolate quite well (a good measure of the quality of the fit), and they are reasonably insensitive to jaw movements. I tried to imagine whether I could eat with them. Probably even that, if it wouldn't be just a giant sized hamburger...
The more I think about it, the more I want to highlight the importance of selecting the right ear tips, and I believe, that even very subtle manufacturing tolerances can have an influence. So it might have helped for me, that I tried from a wealth of clone tips and some Sennheiser's. Anecdotal remark: the two tips I use now are both clones. I cannot really argue why, maybe it's my somewhat "Scottish" mentality
