Even the best in-ear Earphones can sound awful and feel uncomfortable if they’re not seated properly in your ear. Here’s how to get a proper fit:
? Size Matters: The key to a proper earphone fit is using the right size ear tips. So try the various sizes of foam and silicon ear tips that come with your earphones. One ear may be slightly larger than the other, so you may need to use a different size for each ear.
? Seat the ear-tips firmly: To get the best sound, you need to seal your ear canal with the ear tip. So simply pushing an ear tip into your ear often isn’t enough to create a proper seal. Try gently pulling on the outer rim of your ear to ease the tip into a comfortable position. You should notice a drop in ambient noise when the tip is seated correctly. And when you’re listening to music, you’ll notice more range, especially bass.
? Secure the tip for sports: If you find that your earphones fall out while exercising, try looping the cable that connects them behind your head and around the top of each ear. For ear tips that are angled to fit in the ear canal, place the side marked “L” in your right ear and the side marked “R” in your left ear. Some headphones are designed to be worn this way opposite, so check before swapping sides.
