comment
" ...  I find that they are so comfortable that I almost forget that I am wearing them except for the fact that I have music playing or I am listening to an Audible book. ... I had to change out the ear adapters to get the best fit for me to ensure the best fit. ... These come with 4 additional pairs of earbuds.  ...  "

" ...  I've been using the Otium Soar earbuds for the past few weeks and I've been very impressed by the product. ... The design is sleek, the earbuds are comfortable, and the audio quality is clear and crisp. ... They come with a variety of ear tips and once I found the right size, the earbuds felt comfortable and secure. ... My first pair of wired Otium earbuds are capable of producing a slightly louder and richer sound, but otherwise I don't have any complaints. ... All in all, these buds are well designed, comfortable, and can take a beating.  ...  "

" ...  affordability makes them able to easily to get your hands on regardless economic class great for everyone ... The one thing that I do Love about the earbuds is that they fit so nice in your ears when you take them and give them a little twist up when you put them in your ears they lock into place and you can run, jump or exercise any way you want to. ... You tend to get surprised with the headphones blasting into your ear. ... The “cons” I listed out are minor inconveniences compared to the comfort, functionality, and easy-to-use properties of these headphones.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Not sure how this is possible when I wear and use them at the same time but it worked in my favor. ... I’m amazed at how comfortable the ear buds are and secure that they are that there is no need for any kind of fear of them falling out.  ...  "
