I have tiny ears and have never been able to find a pair of earbuds that fit comfortably and stay put.

Anyone else have itty-bitty ears and, if so, have you ever found any earbuds that work for you?

TIA!

Following cause my Dh has the tiniest inner ear and can NEVER find buds that fit. He wears the kind that sit in your ear but are held in place by over the ear wires.

I have spent a lot of $$$$ trying to find earbuds for my delicate little ears. Even posted a thread on here and bought many of the suggestions. Seriously--I could have bought a pair of Dr. Dre Beats with all the money I've wasted trying to find ear buds that don't feel like someone is shoving a rock into my ear...

Don't waste your $$...

I've tried those kind, too. They are just as uncomfortable and fall off of my ears, as well as out. So frustrating.

I used to use the Sony ones with the three sizes of squeezey earbuds, but I've now gone to the new iPhone buds. The first time I saw them and even tried them, I thought no way, but once I figured out how they go in, they are by far the most comfortable I've had. They look massive though.

I have a pair of Skullcandy earbuds - the only kind I've ever been able to wear. I am pretty sure I bought them at Target. They are much smaller than any others I've tried.

I also use Skullcandy earbuds. They come with 3 sizes of earbuds in the package and the smallest size fits perfectly in my ears. They are the first earphones to fit in my ears.

I had the earphones that came with my ipod but those kept falling out of my ears.

Yurbuds. $29.99 at Target. I have never been able to wear earbuds until I got these. Love them.

Yep, the Yurbuds for women are great! Got mine at Best Buy. I have smaller ears as well. The new apple iphones work for mine too, I love that they have a mic control/track because when I'm running, I don't have to get my ipod out to change the songs.

Brookstone also carries a great pair that goes around and inside your ear. They are $30 as well and are awesome! I've had mine for several years.

I have small ears and the only buds I have found that are comfortable are Skull Candy.

I have VERY small ears and never find earbuds that fit...until these: Audeo Perfect Fit Earphones. They're pricy, but honestly...they're AWESOME! They come w/3 sizes of the rubber buds...order extra SMALL ones.

I can't wear the Apple ones for very long...they hurt my ears. They stay in when sitting still, but fall out if I'm exercising.

So I was in the Verizon store of all places (getting contacts transferred to dd's iPhone) and while waiting (almost an hour) I was browsing the accessories.

I ended up buying DH the Bose MIe2 earbuds which come with stayHear ear tips in three different sizes. He LOVES them. Went for a 17 mile run and said they didn't budge. He is thrilled.

The MIe2 are not meant for sports so Bose is kindly exchanging them for us for the Sports version SIE2i.

They are expensive but DH says well worth it.

Thanks for all the suggestions, ladies. I've got a few pairs of Skullcandy earbuds and they fit better than most, but are still just a smidge too big to fit comfortably.

Yurbuds are what comes up the most when I do a Google search. I may give those a try. At that price point, it won't be a huge loss if they don't work out.

The Audeos and Bose look very promising, but at those price points, I'd like to try before I buy, lol. There's a Bose store within driving distance, but I've yet to find a dealer that carries Audeos.

Again, thanks for all the help!
