I've owned and used these headphones for the past 5 months but it's only been in the last several weeks that they're becoming unbearable with really bad sores in both of my ears. I'm not sure what's changed or why it's only been in past several weeks but I keep trying to re-arrange the wire but nothing seems to ease. I wear them up to 40 hours per week so probably doesn't help but nothings changed in the past 5 months and I've always used in-ear headphones for up to 40 hours per week for the past 6 to 8 years without issues like this. I never had any issues in first 3.5 months I've been using them no sores nothing till now and they irritate and hurt like a bi*tch that I really feel I have to discontinue use to give my ears chance to heal.
I think it's due to the housing like others have mentioned. Affected areas of my ear are Antitragus & tragus.. Look at ear diagram below to see
I'm using the small black caps not extra small but small and my right ear tragus seems much sorer then left ear Any advise ?
