is this because of the very thin wire after the split or another reason?
and if it happens with all the sennheisers, which headphones do not do this?
i need something comfortable, preferably black, and wont fall out when i run
does anyone have a suggestion?
For same reason I was unable to use Creative EP-630!

Now I have Sony MDR-ED 21 LP and they are great (especially the lowest bass)!

This is microphonic transfer, what you have is the modern equivelent of a Tin-can telephone.

Either run the wires under your vest or tape the wire to your skin with a bit of micropore or bandaid. This will stop the vibrations travelling straight into your ears.

This will happen with every IEM, and the better the seal in in your ear canal, the more prominent it wll be.
