" ...  You really have to spend some time on the fit, but once you do, you'll be rewarded. ... Getting the exact fit with the "wings" is a bit of a tedious chore, but once you dial in it, they will stay in place and won't fall out.  ...  "
comment
" ...  These headphones fit beautifully around my neck, and after a bit of trial and error with the wide selection of earbud fittings, they sit comfortably in my ears and they stay put. ... They've got a nice range so my phone can be in my pocket, or in a bag on my back or even off in a corner of the room.  ...  "

comment
" ...  But the ability to obtain a solid fit is defeated by the headphone's design. ... The microphone is too big and heavy, and you can't loop the headphone over the ear for a more secure fit because it prevents the earbud from reaching the ear canal.  ...  "
