    Well, I'm looking for some new headphones. Probably something sound isolating, but doesn't have to be. I have small ears and the earbuds I've tried (Apples old style) don't fit me well at all, so I'm mainly looking for out of the ears. Say I was to splurge and get some Shures or something from Best Buy. Would I be able to return them if they do not fit well?


    Suggestions?

    I loovvvvvve my Bang & Olufsen A8 headphones! Although they technically have earbuds on them, they're really comfortable and stay put.

    I was at Best Buy and decided to splurge on the Shure E2C's... Will they be fine on small ears? If not I'll not open them and take them back when I return from my trip.

    The Shures come with a whole bunch of adapters. I used the foam ones (small ears as well) and they work very nicely for me. The other ones I just couldn't get in the right spot and they sounded terribly.

    I've been reading a lot of positive reviews off amazon, so I think I'll go ahead and open them. I am taking a trip tomorrow, so hopefully they will be nice!

    too large!

    Well in my initial experimenting, all three kinds of the smallest caps would not seal in my ears. The foam produced the best fit, but not tight enough to produce a nice sound. I am very disappointed. I have this trip to test them to see if they will work, but right now I'm thinking I may have to return them - I was looking at the Best Buy receipt and didn't see any exclusions... They would accept them, right?

    While searching Shure's support page I came up with this...
    If the E2c's don't work I would consider upgrading to the E3c, but only if I know for sure that they would work. I wouldn't want to spend the money and tear up the packaging just to find out they are also too small.
