take one arm over your head and pull up on the top of your ear. with the other hand, put it tightly in your ear canal. let go with the arm over your head. this might work.

with my personal experiences with the ex70 i found that too far wasnt possible... just put it in until you feel that it will stay.

Take your finger and wet them then just put then in. They only go so far. I think that wetting them will help a lot. I use mine every night on a radio show.

Since the VX100's are a "one size fits all" arrangement, the gasket may not go too far into the ear canal. After I got used to the way they sort of stay in place, I was reasonably happy.

Some users with smaller ear opening might actually be ablee to get them in, a bit. I think the EX70's can go deeper into the ear, and they do have a choice of gaskets, but do not sound nearly as good.

The VX100's are great buds, but, are not the answer to isolation. I'm almost ready to take the plunge and order a set of ER-4P's, if I can get them in Canada; I'm having difficulty making this work.
