Re: Headphones & in-ear headphones

Ugh.. can you imagine The Clampets using earphones and then trading them in.. Who knows what you'd catch! 

Weird dilemma.. why can't ears all be the same?

Re: Headphones & in-ear headphones

@Anonymous You could replace the ear bud part with a better quality to make it fit especially with the IEM type (the ones you stick in the ear canal). Once you discover that then makes a big difference with sound isolation and comfort to any IEM. I have some Comply tips and found they are relatively long lasting though I did try some Kinden brand from ebay but discovered they tore easily though good value. There's also Spinfits but I found the silicone irritated me so stuck to memory foam. 

 

I would recommend a brand I have but sadly they no longer exist which is a shame as they used swappable filters depending on what type of listening you're into. My personal preference is the over/round the ear type of IEM as in the reverse of the usual type and one you see musicians use on stage. Big plus is that the cables don't get in the way when you move your head.

Thank you all above. Sorry not to reply sooner. I've been 'gadding about' today

I bought JBL T290 ear phones from the O2 shop in Skipton. I just get bamboozled @Cleoriff when looking on Ebay & Amazon. Before, cheap ear phones just fell out ... these, however, have 3 sizes of bud. I tried to fit on the smallest size & couldn't so went  back to the O2 shop where long time manager Stavros fitted them. 

@sheepdog I like the look of the Comply Tips you mention. Memory foam seems a good idea

I wear spectacles & am happy with what I've bought. The Comply Tips site / my laptop have been 'playing up' so will look into buying the comfort type again tomorrow

Oh, did I say the metal ends are pearlised pink yay! *pumps fist in air* LOL
