I had to buy some headphones to replace my pink Low Riders. At first the buds would irritate the ear after extended use, but they have either been broken in or my ears are used to them. The sound quality has always been great and the fit around the ear, which can be adjusted, is excellent. Other ear buds fall out of my ear but these have yet to disobedient. They are great for running, snowboarding, and just casual listening.
