I have the UE Superfi 5Pro's and whenever I grin, laugh, etc. they pop out and become unsealed and I have to push them back in. I think this is because they're more "seal" earphones than true canalphones. Maybe my ears are just too slippery/lubricated? Anyway, my question is, which IEMs go in deep enough that I won't have this problem?

Apologies for the double entendres.

My ears are crazy supercalifragilistic clean though! My Doctor told me I had the cleanest ears she ever saw. I clean them everyday, so there!

Can someone please answer if the E4C's or UM2's et al. go in a lot deeper than the UE's? Thanks!

Did you have the problem with the soft sleeves?

I do listen to Margaret Cho stand-up sometimes. She induces lots of IEM popping fun!

I guess The Streets can make me laugh sometimes. I must be too serious.

She's trying to contain a crazy grin in that picture. It must be her.

HOW COULD YOU GET RID OF YOUR AKG K271S'S!!!!!

Just kidding, as I am looking into a new home can myself, but I need to do some research before I actually get rid of these babies....the lack of bass has finally gotten to me.

Oh and back to the subject... I haven't had much problems with IEM's popping out of my ears when I smile or laugh, although they popped out once when I held in a sneeze.
