I'm making good progress in the move to Columi+ gear - all gear is 50 purples, except the earpiece.

What should the 50 recruit earpiece be replaced with?

Recruit Earpiece (Mk-2)
+73 willpower
+39 crit
+45 alacrity

Tionese Earpiece
+68 willpower
+40 crit
+40 alacrity

Columi Earpiece
+97 willpower
+41 power
+48 alacrity

Rakata Earpirece
+103 willpower
+44 crit
+51 alacrity

So the Tionese is worse than the recruit. You can get Columi from drops. Rakata from daily comms. The Black Hole earpieces for sages (that you can buy with comms) are terrible. Two are endurance heavy, and the third has accuracy.

If you have plenty of crit already, I'd go for the Columi earpiece. Otherwise, the Rakata isn't that hard to get by doing dailies.

I just purchased the "Black Hole Force-lord's MK-1 Relay," which solves the blue earpiece problem.

lol, you got the one piece he said not to get. of all the black hole gear to get while gearing, the only piece you don't want at all is the earpiece. it is a downgrade from the rakata earpiece, and only a different mk number piece or a high willpower hazmat earpiece are upgrades.
