The winged rubber cover helps keep them in place and comfortable. ... They come with three sizes of rubber tips that seem to be the same fit as the standard earbud tip sizes out there. ... The large mostly fits for me, I need an XL sized earbud tip though.  ...  "

These come with small, medium, and large ear tips. ... As well as large and small rubber wing tips that you can attach to the earbuds. ... This really depends on what ear tip you choose. ...

" ...  Pros: These connect to my iPhone 8 SUPER fast.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you want to use the earbuds one at a time, the airpods are better with connecting to devices. ... With the airpods you only need to select "Airpods" and the earbud you're using will connect whereas the KY02 earbuds have separate connections for left and right earbud if using one at a time. ... So you'll have two KY02 devices to connect to and not be sure which is which.  ...  "
