I like to make custom molds for earphones like these, but I need a pic with the tips removed. A groove around the stem helps hold onto the mold. These have a nice deep groove. Here's a good one if you were wondering.

These look like a great option if I needed another pair.

I used this article, but instead of the Radians kit, I just bought a $20 kit of Easy Mold from my local craft shop. Here in Missouri USA, its sold at Michael's in the cooking section because they make chocolate molds with it. You get enough 2 part silicone putty to make about 50 sets of molds, so you have plenty of material to practice with and make mistakes and adjustments. Its identical to the Radians material, but purple instead of blue. I make a set in 30min and they cure overnight. They last at least a year before they start feeling loose, probably because of changes in my ears. They give you superior comfort and isolation to any factory sleeve and don't fall out if you're hot and sweaty. They don't rely on pressure to fit and hold in your ear canals like the factory sleeves. I started using this because I couldn't find an earphone that would stay in while mountain biking. Enjoy.
