For those who have problems getting Universal IEMs to fit, I recommend the Comply foam tips. They are much more comfortable than any "stock" silicon ear pieces. (www.complyfoam.com
I use UE Triple.fi 10's and before that Super.fi 5 Pros and never could stand them for more than a couple of hours. Now, with the Complys, I can listen for several hours at a time without discomfort.
