always wear them over the ear in the front, much more comfortable and less tangled.

besides i think most IEM are supposed to wear over the ear for comfort reason.

Over the ear in front.

 

I did option 1 for a while... but found it too difficult to take them on/off.

Hanging from the ears it should have been easier to take them off.

i usually wear my CX300 under my shirt to reduce the microphonics on that horrid cable and i wear them so that one bud goes in my left ear and then i go around the back of my neck for the right bud cuz that is how they are designed(asymmetric).

When I have them over the ears and down the back, I can feel a slight tug when I turn my head. Normally, down my chin doesn't really bother me anyways.

Is that hanging down, or over your ear, before it goes around the neck?

Seems like a lot of people wear them that way.

Depends on the IEM. Tbh, even my superfi4's which are supposed to be worn normally down the chin, i put them around the ear, and down towards my chin. Increases comfort, and less noise fromt he wire moving around. Also isolated better. So i voted for over the ear, down the chin.

 

Iv'e tried behind my back with my W2's, i don't find it comfortable at all. More tugging on the ears than anything.

I voted for hanging from the ears which is the way I prefer, but with the Westone UM2 and UE TF10 I have to wear them over the ears, under the chin.

Over the ear, behind the head, strain relief collar clip.

I have mine over my ears and under my chin. Easier to work with.

Easier to work with, is that a portable device or a long cord?

-Over the ear and in the front in most cases

If i'm sitting at a desk studying, then over the ear and in the back since whenever I lean forward, it tends to hit the thing that stops the music... (I don't know what it is called...)

If I know I have to take them out real quick then I put them in my ears without going over them, but the right one in my left ear and the left one in my right ear... (maybe I'm weird, but it seems to fit better?)

Jasper994 View Post As far as I know, any of the IEMs that does not have a memory wire can be worn either over the ear or like a pair of earbuds...

Do a lot of IEM's still use memory wire?
