How far should I be pushing in my headphones?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have some Klipsch Image S4's II's and I'm confused about getting a proper seal. These are my first "high end" headphones (i.e: spent more than 15 bucks). When I stick them in too deep, the sound distorted. Pulling them back seems to help, but then they're fairly loose. 

 

I also can't seem to tell the difference between the tips. Can anyone give some general advice on how to maximize my listening experience with these? 

 

I'm going to asssume I don't need to push them in so far that I can actually "FEEL" them in my ears, right? I'm not sure how to describe it.. but like fully inserted I have a constant reminder that they're there. 

 

I've tried wrapping it around my ear but they don't seem to stay. I also seem to get a more clear sound when I clench my teeth in some occasions, odd?

For relatively dry ear canals, if you move your mouth with the earphones on, the sound coming out should not change. If you move/jerk your head, the earphones should stay in place. As well, the earphones should be comfortable in your ears. The fit of the ear tip will determine these parameters IME. Once that is done, the insertion depth isn't much of a concern. So definitely find the right fit to get the proper experience.
