Uncomfortable ear buds

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have used this for a long time. Samsung in ear headphones. This makes my ear hurt after a while. Can't use any more. I had another one, JVC which is also the same. Any solution?

Well it might be possible that you are using the wrong tips. You can purchase a set of tips and change them to see if any of them is comfortable. Another option can be going for custom iems but it is a pretty expensive solution.

I tried all the sizes.

Then you can order a set from ebay with different tips as I suggested. Make sure they are compatible with your iems and with many choices, not only soundwise but also materialwise.

Sorry that one is out of my league. I never had any fit problem with my iems.

Custom molded tips? what are them?

I hate to state the obvious, but I assume going for over ear headphones instead is not an option? I suffer with a similar problem to you, I dislike earbud headphones because I can't seem to find any that are comfy.

I already have a good in ear headphone. Other good over ear headphones are expensive. The one I currently have doesn't have a good bass(over ear).

well as the name stated, they are shaped specifically to the shape of your inner ear, so when you put them on they bring the ultimate comfort, as if there is nothing in your ear. But they are quite expensive, just google to get some references
