As far as Iam concerned they do stick out a lot from the ears. It really is an odd shape just like JVC FXZ200, resulting somehow in an awkward fitting. Its not bad but far from ideal.Thats one of the reasons I sold mine some time ago. Too ugly and almost ridiculous in a way, but the sound is very good. For me, UE900, Westone 4r and PFE 232 are the best in comfort fitting, very light yet powerful giving the feeling theres nothing in your ears together with excellent isolation.
Of course this is my humble opinion.
My search continues...
I would be inclined to disagree with this, I have just received mine and although they stick out a little ways, they are not awkward or uncomfortable in the slightest, and fit very well, better then most previous IEMs I have had. That said, it all comes down to the shape of your ear really.
