    Please help save my marriage

    .
    My music drives my husband up a wall, but I must have it blaring to houseclean! So I bought an mp3 player, which should have solved everything.

    However, I have gone through a million pairs of earbuds, both cheap and expensive, and just cannot find any to fit in my ears! If they even go in at all, they only stay for a few seconds. It's so annoying! I'm getting big biceps from the hand-to-ear action twenty times a minute.

    So what's up with this??? Do I have freakishly small canals? Should I get them surgically enlarged?

    Do the manufacturers realize the ladies like music too?

    Is this a misogynistic conspiracy? Can I bring a discrimination class action lawsuit and make millions?

    I tried the earphones (vs. buds) for a while, but really want the buds! Love the design of the earhook buds, that's ingenious, but they are too big too.

    Does anyone else have this problem? How do little kids keep them in?

    (If there is an obvious solution I am missing, I apologize in advance for my technorance.)

    Thanks.

    Heidi

    ( & speaking of conspiracies, what's up with those 20 truly obnoxious screechy tunes pre-planted on the player, that just cannot be removed?? Whose bright marketing idea was that?!?!?!)

    What about something like THESE? The small ones might fit you.

    Another option is to get hubby some noise cancelling headphones. ;)

    BTW there has to be a way to remove, if not at least move the pre-loaded music. You didn't mention the brand player you have, but mention it here and someone can probably help or I'm sure there's a forum out there that can help you with that. (e.g., this forum).

    You could try these.

    They’re made with a special cushion material that forms in the ear for a comfortable custom fit and maximum noise reduction

    Perhaps you should get headphones instead of earbuds. You know, the kind that sit on your ear, or around your ear... a decent pair of cans for $20 no problem.

    The sony earbuds come with a couple of different sized cushions. I assume theyre for people with freakishly small canals.

    I have small ear canals also. The ear buds that came with my little Creative Zen Nano won't stay in. I need to remain perfectly still or they fall out.

    Wait a minute, earbuds aren't supposed to be crammed into your ear canal like the old transistor radio ear plugs. They're supposed to sit in that little notch in the bottom of your ear, you know, the little notch where rainwater runs out.
