IEMS that dont fall out?

hey everyone. im new to the forum and wanted to get some advice on some headphones that are comfortable, sound good and dont fall out. ive gone threw the other headphone threads but they didnt really seem relevant to what im looking for.

my ears must be abnormal as every earbud ive ever used falls out in seconds even when im sitting at my desk. unless i push them as deep into my ears as possible, when they become super uncomfortable. ive tried everything from cheap ones, sony, skullcandy, beats, klipsch, bose and most recently some monster ones. none have fit, none have been comfortable and none suit my needs.

from the research ive done ive came across a few different models that i think could work, and wanted peoples opinions on them before i commit to buy. if anyone has any other suggestions id love to hear them. id prefer ones that sit in my ear, rather then dig into my ear canal...

bose ie2's
yurbuds focus limited editions (i think there new as i cant find any reviews on the sound quality)
monster isport

I wear these while riding and they never fall out. Sound great (good bass response) and dirt cheap, too:

i ended up grabbing some monster isports on boxing day for $80. i was hesitant to grab them as they looked like traditional earbuds with a weird hook, but they are actually extremely comfortable. its actually hard to tell there in my ear sometimes. the silicon part rests against your ear canal rather then being wedged inside and the sound quality is great. there not bass heavy like some people prefer, more of a balanced accurate reproduction. im very happy with them so far. my only negative would be the cord, its flat which is nice but they feel like a cheap plastic and are a bit too flexible which doesnt help with tangles. i tried some puma 360 around ear headphones that also had a flat cable. it had a rubbery feeling and was almost impossible to get tied into a not, however they had almost no bass so i returned them.

Well, my JVCs broke, so I ended up snagging a pair of Skull Candy "Fix" model that stay secure as hell in my ears while deliver HUGE bass:

95% of an iems fit arent the individual iems but the tips.

I personally have VSonic GR02 , and at first they hurt my ears, but then i went through the 20 different tip options that came with them and found one that fit perfect.

Personally, I use Skullcandy Titans, have for years, thinking of upgrading to Icon 2's though.

Etymotics (pick one) or Yamaha EPH 100's. Etymotics typically lack bass for most, but sound great and unmolested regardless. The EPH-100 are a bargain for what they are, bass is right on and they sound very nice, I take them over my $450 tributes any day of the week. Don't let the single driver fool you.

The Yamaha's are very comfortable, but Etymotics are not a problem either with the right tips - the Etymotics also go deeper and do an amazing job at keeping ambient noise out. I'd be surprised if you have an issue with either of those falling out.

edit: Damn, just noticed how old this thread was and that you already bought a pair.

Yeah the only thing i dont like about them is if you have them in both ears its a pain in the ass to take them in/out to talk to people. Other than that great headphones.
