my ears are sore

January 25, 2009


i love earbuds for several reasons:

  • they woun’t mess up my hair
  • i can shove them in my purse or a pocket
  • they work fine for bedtime listening (i am a side-sleeper)
  • they are fairly unobtrusive
  • i can wear them under a hat

there is one thing i really hate about earbuds: they are too big for my teeny-tiny ears and they hurt.

liz’s solution was a pair of phillips earclips:


they feel nice, but i cannot wear them to bed, and they are a bit too bulky for my needs.

if i had my way i would get a pair of “shure” earbuds . . . but at close to $500, forget that.

any suggestions?

    You can get wee little earbuds here that don’t cost the earth.


    They come with different sized ear caps to for maximum fitting.

    I am sure you can get them over there! The above are about $15 x
