    A while back with the older set of Apple headphones my wife ran into issues and went to a running store and bought a set of rubber inserts called Yurbuds.   If they made a specific pair to fit the new EarBuds, it would be smart.  While my set I got from my wife isn't a perfect fit, it really works well, and sound isn't compromised.

    Not exactly an elegant fix, but I cut thin strips from band-aid type adhesive bandages (look for the webby matte kind as they are more flexible) and stuck them around the rim of the earpods.  They move around a lot less now and I am a lot happier with the fit.

    I just received them as a gift. Great sound but they don't even go into my ears very well. They hang on my ears tho and generally don't fall out completely. I was hoping to work out with them in but can only work at my desk! Bah! Anyhoo, they do sound good. If they were half the size, they'd fit.

    I've been using some for a while now but my ears must be too small because they ache after a 15 minute stint...  Are the Apple Earbuds any better for small eared people?  I'd love to try some but they're so **** expensive...

    I have small ear canals and the new earbuds do not fit. I have to put them in with the main output sideways. They sound great, but I won't be able to wear them this way. I'll go back to using my super cheap but good Panasonic earbuds I think I paid $7 for on Amazon.

    I agree with Firebay!

    These earbuds fall out of my ear regularly.
