Okay, I promise this is my last question - and I'm sorry for being so anal ..
This is really more than I wanted to admit, and I hope no one thinks I'm crazy henceforth, but I actually suffer from OCD (or obsessive-compulsive disorder). It's insidious and effects every part of my life .. even simple decisions like buying a pair of ear phones.
So basically, when I have an unreasonable phobia, I'll enact a compulsion to try and reassure myself that it won't come true. For example, I find myself pressing my earbuds against my ear to make sure that they couldn't touch my ear drum. Normally that isn't a problem because the body of the earbud on the cheap pair i'm using is too big to actually enter the ear.
But the body on the HF3 and MC5 actually looks pretty skinny, so I thought that it might be possible for it to enter the ear and for me to (accidentally) hurt myself if I pushed hard enough.
a) is that possible? and b) if the decision is causing me enough anxiety, is the sound-isolation on the ER6s (which appear to have bigger bodies) or even one of the other more shallow-fitting pairs you mentioned still significant enough that I'd be okay settling for one of those?
ugh, I hate having to reveal what a nutjob I really am, but I thought it would be better to just be honest than make an expensive decision I regret
