The Audeo 022 are in-ear headphones, but offer over-the-ear cable routing as favoured by the likes of Shure. This helps to reduce the amount of cable swing you get when moving around (e.g. walking) which can transmit a great deal of noise through to your ears. There is also a cable slider in place so you can get a good secure fit, if that's your preference.
The design of the ear buds themselves sit comfortably in the ear. Although the bodies are rather large, the cable routing solution means they don't stick out, instead sitting neatly in the outer ear. A choice of three different sizes of silicone tip are supplied to get the perfect fit to help you get the best isolation of external noise so you can enjoy your music unfettered.
