I do not like earbuds in my ears. They are ALWAYS uncomfortable and start to hurt and/or fall out after a while. Until now. These Snugphpnes are SO comfortable. They stay in and don't hurt at all. And the sound! Big smooth bass, nice mids, and treble. I bought these for motorcycle trips and, even with a half helmet and no windscreen, I don't even need to turn up the sound to max. Yesterday I realized there are also perfect on an airplane - they put me in my own little world. Pairing is easy and flawless. Highly recommend.
