So I've been looking for a decent pair of sound-isolating headphones and have been torn between going down the circumaural or IEM route. After weighing up my options, I decided on IEMs and was all set to splash out on a pair of these: http://www.amazon.com/Shure-SE210-Sound-Isolating-Earphone/dp/B0013JT3XC/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1304419014&sr=1-3
However, I suddenly realized that, since the foam earplugs I use to sleep at night are consistently making my inner ear itchy, this might be a potential problem with the IEMs as well.
Has anyone found that IEMs give them itchy ears? If so, is it dependent on the tip, etc. used?
