I have pretty much given up on ever finding a pair of earphones that I’m entirely happy with. It’s not that I’m so obsessive over sound quality that I’m never satisfied. I really just don’t think they’re that comfortable. They’re either falling out due to being too small or just slowly work their way out over a few minutes. Either way I really don’t think anyone should have to settle and deal with that. Thankfully the designer Yong Lee agrees. They’ve designed some earphones that may actually stay in your ears.
These earphones took a design cue from an ocarina, they work by pressing into your ears, but at the same time they get a little support from the other side as well. They have a T-shape design, so it sits snugly within your ear and hopefully takes away from the slipping problem. Now of course these are still a design right now, so you can’t actually purchase them. However, I’m glad to see someone thinking these things through a little more.
