It is a frequent complaint that earbud earphones are painful and fall out during exercise. This is particularly whilst running and jogging. So why does this happen?
There are several reasons for this. The first is that earbuds are one-size-fits-all. Unfortunately due to the large variation in ear shape and size, this ends up being one-size fits none.
Earphones are usually round and hard whereas ear canals tend to oval and sensitive. This results in them being uncomfortable due to the formation of pressure points within the ear.
Because the earphone is usually smooth there is low friction with the ear itself, resulting in it slipping out easily. This is worsened by exercise such as jogging which raises your body temperature. It makes you sweat, lubricating the earphones and helping them fall out.
So what can you do about it?
Molded earphones are a great solution as they are individually fitted to your ears like a key in lock. This makes them more comfortable and less likely to fall out.
ZenPlugs Molded Earphones Kit is a revolution in earphone design. It allows you to make your own molded earphones at home in a few minutes, saving time and money and giving excellent results. They are made using a revolutionary thermoplastic which allows a one-stage molding process at home. This is in comparison to visiting the audiologist which may take several visits and is a multistage process.
