I started over the ear style but after 8 months and cable broke I use only straight down

Shigzeo View Post  i have tried to wear behind my back, but not in normal walk-about times. when im bicycling or other active stuff, i tuck the cable behind me through my shirt and down my back, but usually, it is in front below my chin. im sure that is the norm. whenever i see someone on the train with a shure or ue, they always have the cable in front of them!

Somewhat on topic, is there anyway that I can loosen the cable on my earphones? They seem really stiff and have all sorts of kinks so I was hoping I could do something to them to make them more flexible. Thanks

I like to shove them down my pants and turn the bass up.

 Dobber65 View Post  This may be an obvious question, but how do you wear them?
I usually wear all my IEMs looped with the wire going behind my ear, but with my IE8s I found wearing them with the wire straight down was as comfortable as looped, and the body rests differently in my ear. My IE8 now sits a bit behind and facing rearward, which is OK for me. Wearing straight down, if you haven't tried it, may work for you also.

depends. wore my S4i's straight down, but it depends which set I wear really. Tend to wear my panasonics over the ear and down the back.

over the ear and in front. I don't like something on my back. :D can better control the cable

 

since I am using that kind of IEM, I hate the straight down with cheap In-ears

I wear mine over the ears with the cables running down my chest

Over-the-ears with my Super.fi 5.. It's impossible to get a good fit wearing them straight down.

post #60 of 81

I generelly would prefer straight down, since I never had much of a problem with microphonics. But with some phones it simply won't work because they are designed to be worn over the ears (such as super.fi 3), in this case I wear them over the ears and the cable down my front. I don't like it on my back and because of my long hair they take too long to put on that way.
