I still have the R1, but showing you how the ear guides fit around my ears would be a bit misleading. Sezai explained that they are normally made to fit exactly around the customer's ears (ie. a type of custom fit) and the R1 I have is a demo unit where the ear guides stick up way too much. That would not give a good impression of what the fit would be like. The image below should give an idea of what the ear guides look like. It is quite a thick heat shrink and very stiff so that it can be shaped to a curve matching the customer's ears. I will be honest and say that I personally do not like it at all, even if the fit were perfect. But then again, I don't like things such as memory wire either. Friends of mine don't seem to have any issues with it (one even happily uses the R4 and R5 for portable), so it will depend on your personal tolerance to the stiffness and whether or not you wear glasses. The sound is incredibly good and I would love to have a cable like this one day, but for me personally that would require a different solution. So it really depends. It might or might not work for you. Sorry I can't be any clearer than this.
