    It's not so much that there's a standard size, rather that the flexy nature of the tips means a bog standard set can be stretched over most headphones. You get some headphones which have tiny "barrels" and others which are pretty massive, my current set of IEMs are really wide for example. That's why more expensive aftermarket tips like Comply Foam come in various sizes, to ensure a decent fit [=

    Comply Foam, great comfort and isolation. They can make your headphone's highs feel toned down somewhat, but they're excellent otherwise. They're somewhat expensive, starting at £15 for three pairs, but they're well worth the investment in my opinion. However if you check Comply's website and find that you need the T-100 tips, if you post me a stamp I can post you back two completely unused pairs that I don't need anymore [=
