    ....for designing another set of earphones that DON'T fit in my ears! They fall right out. Off to find something else I guess. END RANT.

    Just like all earphone companies, they try hard to please everyone but you need to remember not all humans are created equally. Sorry for you. Maybe go buy a earphone with clips or something.

    No complaints for me. These are definitely better than the older ones.

    Well they were technically "free" and whilist it sucks that they don't fit, I'm sure you have a pair that do, right?
    Provide feedback to Apple though. Apple doesn't come here.

    You do realize that every single human ear is different, right? So you want them to make earbuds specifically for you? They don't fit me either, but then again, I hate earbuds and prefer the quality of over the head, studio quality headphones.

    I have the same problem... Seems like the sound is good, but my ears are too small for them and they don't sit securely. Not quite as bad as the old ones, which actually hurt my ears, but still not great.

    Imo, though, that's always going to be a problem unless you have adjustable sizes like earbuds. What's too big for me is going to be too small for some.

    I don't think this means what you think it means.

    Haha...Yeah, I think I was born without those little nubs that hold in earbuds. I'm a freak. I just wanted to look "cool" with white earbuds this time. It's a shame cause they sound real good when I hold them in. Oh well, what do you guys recommend?

    How much are you willing to spend? I love the sound of Beats Solo but they're far too expensive for what I use them for.

    Lots of options on Amazon with remote capabilities. Check for highly rated ones.

    Tthey fit perfectly in mine... I like the earpods better than the set they used to include with the iPhones.

    If you ask me money is no object, if you ask my wife $0. I already have a pair of Bose QC15s I use at work but they are bulky for moving around in. What about powerbeats?

    Didn't mean this to turn into an accessories thread (would have posted in accessories) but I'm looking for something with rich mid to low levels without distortion at volume in either a foam earbud form factor or a clip over ear style. Thanks.

    Tip from a DJ: Stay away from beats headphones their quality is much less then headphones at similar price points.

    I only really use large over ear headphones however so won't be able able to help you out with choosing some headphones that much unfortunately. I've heard good things about the "Ultimate Ears UE350" however. I think they only cost $40 and have pretty good bass, they are in ear headphones. I've never actually tried them though just through word of mouth.

    It's a shame the new Apple headphones don't fit you because they are very good headphones for that price point IMO and they do look pretty cool, kind of like a spaceship or something.
