    Hi,
    I am looking to buy the Apple headphones with remote and mic, and while reading reviews I was astonished as to how many people were giving bad reviews because the standard shape earbuds do not fit in their ears.

    So, my question to you is, do the standard shape Apple earbuds fit into or fall out of your ears. Also your opinions of the Apple headphones with remote and mic would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    whonut

    Depends how big your ears are. As with all designs (and Apple, as we know, pay particular emphasis to design and the design process) they will have been made to fit the standardised average ear size of the population (though this standardisation was made based on a large sample of US GI's in the 50's/60's I believe...)

    I will say that I don't like them. They're not comfortable and sound quality is not great so I would advise you invest in a better pair.

    I bought the Apple headphone's with remote/mic a couple days ago. Pretty pleased with it so far, sound quality is better then the normal headphones and i love the mic! Now i can use SKype on my ipod!! Amazing, i had no problem with the ear bud. I say buy it!

    Acctualy i never touched both of my iPod buds (from my shuffle and touch). They mostly lie arround until some of my friends needed some buds - I was kind enough to offer them those - free ofcourse. And they were like "OMG are you kiddin? Those cost xy€".... Well who cares how much they cost it's about sound quality

    Thanks for all the replies, personally they fit well in my ears and I'm 13 so subsequently have below average ear size (never thought I say that!) I find the sound quality good though I have no point of real comparison.

    Those things fit fine here, but feel weird to me.
