Default Shure olives to Hippo VB; are these what I'm looking for?

Hi,
I'm hunting for sleeves for my Hippos. I hear a lot great about the Shure olives, i.e. PA910 / EABKF1, but all the threads are old and outdated.
Are these sleeves legit, and from a good reseller? http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-MEDIUM-Fo...item2ea6cc0e50

Or does someone know a better way of buying these when living in Sweden?

Or is there an even better alternative than the olives that I have overlooked?

Thanks!

those look right to me. you have to stretch them pretty good to get them on the VB. the comply foam tips are a better fit but dont last quite as long. Some people swear by the foam/silicone combo that monster makes. Sony also has some hybrid tips with foam inside. They come with the ba IEMs but not sure if you can buy them seperately. the foam/silcone combo is kind of nice because it gives you an extra seal but the silicone protects the foam and makes them last a little longer. for my money, I use the comply. they are like Tabasco sauce for me. I put that shit on everything.

Ok, thanks. I'll look into those other options aswell.

By the way, do you (or anyone else) know if there is any difference between the Shure EABKF1 and PA910 or if it's just new and old model name but identical product?
