I badly need a better pair of headphones. I currently use Bose IE2's, and while I think they sound great, they constantly fall out of my ear whenever I do any athletic activity. I really only wear them when I'm running or at the gym, and I have to constantly adjust them or put them back in my ear after they fall out, which happens way too much. I have tried all of the various silicone sizes, and nothing helps. Not to mention how annoying it is that the silicone pieces are constantly falling off. So basically, I don't mind the speakers, the sound is exactly what I like, but they are just not compatible with athletic activity. It could be that my ears are just not compatible with this product, and so I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem, and what they have to done to remedy the situation. I would really prefer to have IEMs because they easily fit in my pocket, which is very important to me.
The first thing I thought of doing was dropping an insane amount of money on a pair of Ultimate Ears after having an audiologist look at my ear for measurements or however it's done. I'd rather not spend hundreds, or even a thousand on a pair of headphones, but I would really like to have a pair of headphones that stays in my ear no matter what so I haven't ruled out this possibility. They have a pair for $400 (UE 4 Pro Custom) plus whatever it costs to have my ear measured by an audiologist. Is this worth it? Would I have a pair of amazing headphones that fit perfectly, or are they overpriced?
After doing some reading on this forum, I noticed there was some support for the SoundMagic E30's, as well as the MEElectronics M6, which seem to have an interesting over-ear part that looks like it would solve my problem, but would I be sacrificing quality? I know most people say that Bose quality is overrated, so maybe what I have now isn't all that great anyway. I would much rather buy a cheaper pair of headphones than the UEs, but I'm curious what the opinions of this forum are.
Has anyone else had a problem with Bose IE2 constantly falling out of their ear when running or working out, and what did you do to fix this problem? Thanks in advance.
