    You don't have to, you can just let them fall out of your ears.

    Apparently the size of your ears don't match up with earbuds (and most are that size) so I would switch to either earbuds with a hook on them to fit over your ears or some in-ear headphones, along with an adapter from either Griffin or Schosche. Your ears will thank you for it as the sound will be greatly improved.

    Do you think that Apple is going to make a custom set of headphones with two different size earbuds for the Shuffle? The headphones probably cost about 2 bucks.

    I received my Scosche IRM35 last week which allowed me to quit using the Apple earbuds (which is the first time in 6 years that I ever used Apple headphones) and go back to my Ultimate Ears headphones, which makes a huge difference in sound. What do you expect Apple to do about this problem?

    Does anyone know if the Apple radio remote will work with the new shuffle?

    Sorry... The radio remote works ONLY with iPods that have screens. It ONLY connects to iPods with an iPod connector...
