What about some earbuds that DON'T hurt?

The standard iPod earbuds are too big for my ears and they hurt. When they're not falling out that is. I use some old Sony earphones for the gym, but I'd sure like some earbuds that fit in my small ears.

I have the same issue with the iPod ones. I even tried buying some really nice in-ear Shures, but those didn't work either. I finally gave up and bought some little Phillips over ear ones, and they're quite nice, great bass, etc. $20 from Target. Mine are white, but you get the idea.

I need to keep an eye on this thread. I've always hated ear buds and gave all mine away. I like phones with a head band and I like them to cover my ears (I have Sennheiser HD 205s). However, now that I've developed TMJ, it actually hurts to have those phones touching the area in front of my ears.

I like these, they come in white or black, the ear pads come in sizes to customize even further Plus I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond.

I have small ears and these stay in.

These are the best:



But it depends on your budget - Shure is an expensive, professional brand.

It takes a couple of times to figure out how these will fit best. You have to "twist" them into the ear canal.
When I do cardio, they always stay in.

Did you try the dif sizes?

They have a 99.99 dollar model which is great.
