Comfortable Earbud Recommendations Please

Hi everyone! I'm looking for your recommendation on comfortable ear buds. I'm willing to to spend, not a lot, but I guess more than normal for earbuds if they are super comfortable. I find they are always too large for me and after a day my ear starts to hurt. Thanks!!

I recently made my own using custom ear plug molds that I bought on amazon. There are videos on YouTube on how to do it, just google diy custom earbuds. I have trouble with earbuds fitting, and I wanted some that were noise cancelling. They work great and are very comfortable. You just need the ear plug molds, ear buds with a stem (not the apple kind), a drill and bit, and an exacto knife.

I normally don't like earbuds. But I have a pair of Bose noise cancelling ones similar to the ones mentioned above. I keep them in for hours without discomfort.

Be careful shopping for earbuds. My husband bought me a nice, moderately priced pair of noise canceling earbuds thinking I could use them to watch in-flight movies. Unfortunately they were bluetooth and had no way to connect a standard single earphone plug to the plane's system. The ones others have recommended here aren't bluetooth so you should be fine.

None of the ones mentioned are noise cancelling. If you want Bose noise cancelling earbuds be prepared to pay much, much more.

I don't need noise cancelling, just something comfortable. Thanks so much all!
