Until (approx) 2005, I HAD to wear over ear headphones, I couldn't out earphones in my ears, no matter what size or style... Nope
Then I had my ears pinned back. I still have (in comparison) small sized ears, cos they're no longer flapping forward, I can wear earphones
I live my spirit sport, the sound is great, but it's still the cable. I have strange skin (sort of.goes with everything else!) and every single neck cable sticks to it, and pulls on the cable as i move about. I currently wear them with the cable at the front.
