I've lost one of the rubber tips for my in-ear Anker earphones.  I called in to JB Hifi to see if they have replacement tips for sale, but apparently not.  A quick search of trademe found a few options, but in most cases the shipping cost is almost 10 times the item cost.  If I've got no other choice I will go down that route, but I figured I would ask in case someone here has some spare earphone tips lying around.

 

I think the ones that I've been using are x-large, though they might just be large.  If anyone has spare tips that they don't need and would be happy to pop them in an envelope, I'd be eternally grateful and more than happy to reimburse the postage costs.

Yeah, I bought a bunch from Ali Express for less than $1. I think I still have some that match your description, will check when I'm home

also those two dollar type shops have cheap earphones  that come with sets for next to nothing.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Thanks for the suggestions.  By some unbelievable fluke I found the missing tip on my return journey home.  Nearly a kilometre of footpath on a windy day, and the errant tip was just lying there on the footpath where it must have fallen off.  Maybe I should buy a lotto ticket? :)

Lizard1977: I've lost one of the rubber tips for my in-ear Anker earphones.  I called in to JB Hifi to see if they have replacement tips for sale, but apparently not.

 

Whilst I see you've found it again (congratulations!); FYI, when I lost a silicon "ear bud" 3 or 4 years ago from a really nice pair of Philips-made earbuds, I wrote to the manufacturers support address asking if it was possible to buy spares, and they just sent me a couple in an envelope...

 

If you lose one again, you may wish to give that a try!
