    Hey,

    I need help finding a pair of earphones that dont just fall out of my ears, i have owned loads of pairs of in ear headphones and they never fit, they all fall out, even with the thickest buds. I have checked google many times on how to put them in but have come to the conclusion they will never fit.

    On the other hand the apple standard headphones fit me perfectly and i find them extremely comfortable, obviously these are rubbish, so i need help finding a pair of decent earphones shaped like the apple ones.

    Price isn't important so just link me with whatever you can find,

    Cheers

    Foam eartips will make most earbuds fit tighter than Apple earbuds.

    A company called Comply makes foam ear tips that fit on most earbuds. A lot of people swear by them and I just ordered some late last week, should be here soon. I am the same way, earbuds just don't stay in place and i've tried a few.

    This is a huge problem for me. I have looked through most of the earphone threads here and have found nothing regarding a pair that stay in your ears. Sound quality is important, but when I'm running, it doesn't matter much if the buds keep falling out. I have tried several buds (even a few wrap arounds) and cannot find a pair that does not need constant adjustment. I am almost thinking that the only option is to go with a pair that is custom made from an ear mold. If there is anyone out there that can reccomend a pair that stays put no matter what, it would be greatly appreciated

    I have the PK-3 version of these (I believe they are $40 a pair, their cheapest ones) and they are excellent. They come with a few foam inserts and they stay in my ears even when I'm running. I'm a fan. I only wish they made a set that had a microphone/iPhone controls!

    Yep. I put foam earbud covers on my Apple earbuds and it helps hold them in the sweet spot.

    Check out these Sony earbuds. These are my go to earbuds. The sound is amazing for a $8 earbud. They fit similar to Apple's.

    Honestly I would just go with a pair of bose. If you're going to spend $300 on a music device, $8 to listen to it doesn't seem very logical.

    I have the bose AE2i, and they're incredible. My brother and dad own the in ear ones, and those are awesome as well.

    What's not logical is saying a product is not worthy simply based on price. This theory is illogical.

    And not everybody cares so much about sq like an audiophile. Some people may just want a cheapy set to listen to the tunes from their device in private.

    You can always get some custom Westone earpieces.

    You need to be very clear regarding what you consider to be "decent". Don't assume that your notion of decent is universal. If you don't consider the Apple earphones decent then what do you consider decent as far as sound quality is concerned? There's a wide range of options.

    No one that says that means that. Are you willing to spend $100? $300? $1,000? Everyone has a budget.

    My logic consists of:

    OP wants a decent pair of headphones, in my opinion (and general consensus), $8 probably is not going to be decent. In my experience selling headphones while working at Radioshack in high school, you get what you pay for. The $8 may sound okay, but you're getting $8 worth of product quality. The bose headphones are guaranteed to work for a long time through their manufacturers warranty. You can spend $8 on headphones and use them for a month, and have to spend eight more dollars to replace the broken pair. Or spend $160 and have the pair for years, and have a very high quality pair of headphone.

    If you still think my logic is illogical, please let me know what confuses you and I may be able to clear up some confusion for you.
    ;)

    You can't clear up yourself. You would be good at selling Monster Cable. $49 digital audio cables.

    You can't clear up yourself. This makes sense, proper english as well.

    I'm glad you can recite some of the overpriced products at Raidoshack.
    I'm also not sure where you're going by citing the $49 digital auto cable, are you implying that Bose are overpriced?

    You still seem to be confused, however, I'm still willing to help you sort out some of your confused thoughts.

    Bose headphones > $8 pair of sony headphones.
