Why not just get fitted ear-phones like professional musicians?
They last longer, sound better, and are more comfortable. Ok, you need to get an ear mold done but it’s been the best decision I ever made.
@Evansdoor because not everybody is capable of using them, There are some people like myself who wear hearing aids and hearing aids + over head/ear headphones don’t get along very well.
So having the option to have earbuds that I can put into my ears tend to work like hearing aids do but for music, gaming etc.
I’ve tried over-ear headphones but the sound quality makes it sound as if i have the volume turned all the way down when it’s at 100% with earbuds the sound is much better without needing to have the volume at 100%.
Apple AirPod Pros was probably the best investment I made as I can use them for both my phone and gaming and one awesome feature with the AirPods is they have a feature that basically allows me to turn my AirPods into hearings aids by turning on the LiveListen feature or more commonly known as the eavesdrop feature and hear what people are saying to me without having to take out my earbuds then put in my hearing aids.
As I have said in other discussions here, every earbud I have used falls out, unless they have a headband holding them in. It is possible that evansdoor, the OP, has a solution that would work, but I don’t use them often enough to justify them.
