    Hello,

    I checked google for posts on this and quite a few exist, but they're all pretty old so I apologize for reposting. At any rate, does anyone know where to get genuine Apple replacement tips for the In-Ear Headphones? If not, do you have any recommendations for good third-party tips?

    Lastly, would anyone like to trade? I'm looking for medium tips, and I have both small and large tips.

    Thanks!

    I walked into an apple store looking for replacement tips and the sales guy told me they don't sell them but that if I'd hang on he'd ask a genius if they had any in the back. They did and he gave them to me for free.

    I'd go into a store and ask for help.

    I purchased some on amazon. They are fine, and don't come off the earpiece as easily. Just search for them. I purchased 3 pairs small sized for $5.99 from Listen UP on Amazon.

    ComplyFoam.com makes replacement tips for a variety of in-ear headphones. They are foam so they create an excellent seal in the ear cannal.

    Yeah, they make replacement tips for both the Apple in-ears and the regular earbuds that come with every iPod. They call the Apple line of stuff Whoomp. I have the Whoomp tips for the regular earbuds (I like them), but I've never used the ones for the in-ears... the whomp foam tips. Here's a link to their page
