Musician needs help locating tiny earbuds for IEM's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am a guitarist/singer who just started using wired In-Ear Monitors. Many of the places I play have a high noise floor and the IEM's have been a huge improvement over my old loudspeaker monitor except for one thing: the earbuds are too big. I must have extra small openings to my ear canals or something, because the outer edges of my ear canals are in pain after about 15 minutes of using these buds.

I must admit (gulp!) that I have only purchased the cheap buds: the Aiwa HP-V163, the Koss P3, and the Philips SBC-HS300. A friend of mine uses these inexpensive earbuds with no problem, and he is the reason behind why I purchased the Wal-Mart variety.

Can anyone recommend A) a store or site where I can find a wide selection of earbuds and/or B) a decent smaller-than-the-standard-sized earbud for under $50? Many Thanks!

Even the Sony EX70 would be a big improvement over the earbuds you're using. Those open-air earbuds you're using provide no isolation at all!
