I have a weird ear canal and most IEM do not fit well, on most cases they will fall from my ears while moving my head or walking. so after years of fighting with that and looping cords around my ears so the earphones would not fall(I still had to push them back into the canal every few minutes) I found the bose IE2 with their nifty stabilizers.
alright, the bose buds fit very nicely and secure on my ears but there are certain problems, they're bose phones, I absolutely hate the sound quality and the V-curve. but that's not all, I usually run on a noisy beachside avenue and these IE2s have no isolation at all.
I have tried about 12 diferent earphones and they all fall from my ears so some sort of hook/stabilizer is needed.
now that you know my story maybe you can help me. my priorities with these phones are:
1st. secure fit
3rd. sound quality
money is not really a problem, within reason obviously, I'm not going to drop 250 bucks on a workout IEM but up to 180 is ok with me as long as they stay in my ears.
PS: I hate those around the head earphones like the senn/adidas ones.
