All my life i only wear open ears until i decided to get earphones with tips because i thought they cancel noice better so i bought cheap 1 dollar iems and so far so good it does block some noise and its comfier than i thought. then i decided to get an actual good iem so i bought the tangzu wan er's i wore them and their eartips are like bricks they are so uncomfortable and harsh on my ears. I decided to be a man and stick wearing it for a week hoping my ears would get used to it and no it dint its much worse now and i had them off for a whole day and it still hurts. do i go back to open earphones is the apple earpods good?

OP, why?

I read somewhere its normal with new iems so i gave it a week for my ears to get used to it

Stop wearing them, and let your ears rest until you feel like they've essentially fully recovered.
You could try other eartips such as the Spinfits or Springtips, but make sure to not "man it out" because that's just how you hurt yourself for no reason

Maybe try foam or smaller size tips? I find Wan'er stock eartips are fine, but you can get something more comfortable like Radius deep mount or revised version of Final type E.

On day 4 i bought springtips small size and its much more comfier but i dont know if it works for the irritation because my ears are still hurting from the stock tips. i had the springtips on for 2 days but my ears are still sore although i think its because of the stock tips

Maybe try Azla SednaEarfit Xelastec, those get soft when getting warm and deform to fit the shape of your earcanal better. With these I can even wear the bigger ones.

I use them on all my IEMs

You need to try different eartips. Eartips play a big role I comfort.

Make sure you aren't putting them in too deep. Get them to where you have a decent seal in your ears but don't go crazy shoving them in. Also twist them when taking them during insertion and taking them out.

same issue for me i can do about hour before i need to take iems off its just impossible for me to have in ears with tips.
i currently have nothing ear stick, not outstanding audio wise but dam they are the only iem i had so far that i can use for long time

i can do well with my old cheap iems its just the driver size where u put the tips in is much bigger on the wan er than my old cheap iem i think thats the cause

If ur not used to wearing iems, ur ears will hurt a little bit from the tips. It took a few days to get used to them but now I don't feel pain from tips anymore

The iems you bought probably doesn't fit you. Try something smaller? The moondrop chu is small. People say the moondrop aria is also comfy. There's a cheap "clone" of the aria called the truthear hola. The hola is tuned similarly to the tangzu wan er i think. So you could try that.
