The most popular tips for these seem to be:
JVC Spiral Dot ++
Final Audio Type E
Sony EP-NI1000 Foam
(Moondrop Spring - I also liked them but there are few opinions about them)

I tried all of them and for my ears the EP-NI1000 came out on top
thank u about this, dot++ compared to stock sony hybrid about fit, sound, pressure in ear, soundstage ?

Anyone just use the stock silicone tips? These work better for me than any of the other tips I've tried tbh. Perfect fit every time and they sound great.
Yes. I've tried all the popular tips out there, but ended up coming back to the LL hybrid silicone tips. They fit and sound the best IMO.

Yes. The stock "hybrid" tips work best for me. I even bought some extras for other IEMs.

Yes the stock tips (EP EX11) are excellent. I love them with my WF1000 XM4 (ironically, XM4 comes with the ep ni1000 tips and sounds awful with them). For M9, I prefer Final E types though (brings out a little more warmth) but stock tips are equally good.

Finally I decided to stick to JVC Spiral Dot ++.
The length of Dot ++ is the longest compared to others.
This feature prevent my ear from touching the case of M9, which could be hurtful for long time daily use.

I decided to try the Comply tips finally and surprisingly they are the best fitting for me. The first set that isn't a struggle to get a seal, and they sound great!

This is very interesting, I might have to try those Dot ++ next.

I found the best sound for my liking with Final E but having this same issue with one ear, just my left side. The curvy design of the case on the bottom that’s sticking out is preventing me from pushing in for proper seal. It’s rubbing against my ear notch and the inner part of the case is pushing on my intertragal notch which hurts after a while and loosing out on lower frequencies on left side with my favorite tips final E. Now I’ve switched to Final E clears upped one size as well, it’s better than before but not satisfied with the sound when compared to the deep fit of Final E M size. I need something with longer stem so it won’t rub or press on my ears.
I will look into DOT ++, is there a bud difference with sound btw the E and Dot++, will I be loosing out on that awesome low end with the more open nozzle of Dot++?
I couldn’t find them online, could you please share where you found them?

Sorry, I have not tried final E tips thus I don't know the sound difference between it and and Dot++.

E has more sub bass than Spiral Dot ++

You can hear cymbals more easily with the SD++ than the E

Since E is not working fit wise for my ears, I have to look for some tips with longer stem. Is there any more options to consider other than SD++?

try cp100/cp100+? those have the longest stems. cp145's stems are long too, same length if not longer by a tiny bit (sorry if the photos are not clear, i am not wasting time to arrange them and to take photos again) i think azla sednafit has long stem version too, check those out.

otherwise, try double flange like acoustune aet06.
radius deep mount has a different design than all other eartips should help too, and this is also the best sounding ear tips for me (check the photo below for comparison of design between radius deep mount, spiral dot ++ and final e)

softears clear's stems are long too, same like those spinfit, but they cannot fit m9 snugly.

Thanks for the photos, they definitely help. I have been curious about radius deep mount but it won’t work for my ears with M9 but I am getting them for my other sets. I’ll look more into CP100, have tried CP145 in the past and they were my favorites until I found Azla.
