Why Do My Earphones Hurt So Much And Why Don't They Stay In?

Frequently earphone users find that their earphones hurt their ears and that they won't stay in their ears. You might be wondering Why Do My Earphones Hurt So Much And Why Don't They Stay In?

Earphones are one-size-fits-none.  This is because they are a standardised shape and size but ear canals are all different. The earphone is often hard and round whereas the canal is sensitive and oval, creating pressure points and pain.

The ear canal is made of bone lined with a thin layer of skin.  Because earphones don't stay in well users often jam them in hard, causing more pain and discomfort.

During exercise MP3 players often bounces about in a pocket.  This pulls on the cord and causing discomfort as well as pulling your earphones from the ears.

The smooth surface of many phones leads to lower friction with the lining of the ears, not keeping them in.

So what can you do about it?

Molded earphones are individually shaped to your ears so to like the proverbial key in a lock.  ZenPlugs are even antibacterial, helping prevent ear infections from wearing earphones a lot.  They are contoured to each and every gentle curve of your ears in only minutes at home.  This makes them far less expensive and far more convenient than visiting the audiologist.
