Default Standard Earbuds Don't Fit

Hi all,

After getting my SGP 4.0, I tried on the in-ear earbuds, but no size works for me. It's the first time I use in-ears, and I watched multiple tutorials, but they always fall out within 30 seconds. I got some Sennheiser OMX 60s on sale for around $20 to solve the problem, but does anyone else experience this?

Thats because the earbuds suck lol

I'm just saying IMHO

Not sound quality wise but comfort,they can't fit all the way inside my ear canal like my other headphones can,they barely get far inside my ear. I've been thinking of breaking some of the plastic off the bottom end of the phones so they could fit in my ear,that might work

The large and medium simply slide out. The smallest are okay if I come dangerously close to touching brain matter by shoving them as far in as they can go. The design of the speaker cover is okay but the plastic itself is just way too soft and gives during any jostling thereby slipping right out of your ear.

No, it's not you. Fabulous device. Useless earbuds.

Did the 4.0 come with different buds? My 5.0 only came with one size, and they fit better than any I've found. They're the spherical type. I have some Comply ts-100's on order to fit my s4.

To this day, I NEVER used stock earbuds that came with any of my players. They are kept in a drawer or in the original box, just in case I want to sell any of them. For the most part, they all suck, and it's best to purchase separates.

they fit me fine (don't fall out), once i put the large piece on my left ear and a medium on the right, but my right ear starts to hurt if I keep it in mire then 30 minutes, not the ear pieces fault I just have a sensitive ear canal and can't wear that style headphones.

But the sound is sub par anyway so like the other guy I only keep the stock headphones around for when I damage or lose my regular headphones (I go thru headphones about every 3 years just from wear and tear from plugging and unplugging eventually 1 channel always goes)
