The stock rubber tips that came with my PFEs don't fit too well, and the medium comply tips are loose in my right ear. What other tips fit on the PFEs with minimal modification?

I used UE dual-flange tips when I had Shure E2Cs and they seemed to work the best for me in terms of seal. Would any dual or triple flange tips fit on the PFEs?

Thanks

I've settled on silicone bi-flange tips from my ety ER4. I modified them a bit to shorten the stalk. They fit snug and don't pull off like the stock silicone tips.

try large Comply if medium don't fit well, also Comply P-tip is good too. Shure Olive can be fitted onto PFE, just enlarge the hole on the tip a little before using it. this make make take it off easier.

Would something like this fit the PFEs without too much modification?

Triple Flange Sleeves for Westone 3, UM2, UM1, Shure SE series, SCL4, SCL5 and SCL3 (3 pairs)

Thanks

Where can I buy the dual-flange ER4 tips? I can only seem to find triple-flange for the ER4s.

I don't really like tips that you need to squeeze, since they don't tend to work well in my ears (always expand and then pop out after a while). Do the triple-flange Shure tips fit the PFEs (since they are designed to fit the same earphones as the Shure olives?)

Also, will using the Shure triple-flange tips hurt sound quality of the PFEs since the driver might be located farther from my ears when using the triple-flange tips?

Hmm, I will probably get both the triple flange and the olives then to try them out. So basically any tips that fit the Shure E3C and above series will also fit the PFEs?

I was looking at those and it says on the site that the olives will fit E3, E4, E5, and all SE series, along with some Westone IEMs. I'm assuming the triple flanges will also fit the PFEs since the site says they will fit the same Shure and Westone models?

Thinking of getting these as well to try out:

You can fit just about any tip onto the PFEs. It's just about working it on. The PFEs have wider, stubbier, sound outlets than the norm. This initially led me to the belief that you had to have their tips to make a go of it, but I was wrong. If you work it, you can get virtually any tip onto these guys. You just have to be patient and determined.

Those triple flange from ES will work. I have my Ety and Shure tri-flange tips mixed and I think they are the same. My bi-flange are simply modified tri-flange...just trim off the smallest tip, carefully. I also cut off approx. 3/16" of the stalk.
