    I have a set. I don't use them as often as I'd like though, simply because they fall out of my head. Anyone have remedies for this? I have thought of taping them. I don't have the best headphones, the unit I have is the Shure PSM400...seems to work great, other than I lose the phones 30seconds into a song and usually just give up.

    That would be so metal if you duct taped them on your head.

    Same problem here. People tell me that getting fitted earpieces is the way to go (I am currently using a Sennheiser System with Shure Earphones) ...

    fitted earpieces definitely are teh shit but i recon it's not so uncommen to use some gaffa to kind of "glue" them to your ears.

    I use a headphone clip to clip it to my shirt. It helps to remove any kind of pull from my ears.

    Are you using the single flange sleeves, because those are horrible, they never stay in. With my Shure E1's I've been using the triple flange sleeves for years with no slippage at all, my brother uses the E3's with the foam sleeves which aren't as good as the triple flange, but they are better than the single sleeve.

    agreed the triple flange sleeves kick ass..alot cheaper than fitted. I've had no problems with the triple nipple's..

    I'm using Shure E2Cs and they've never fallen out.

    Maybe it's because I rarely have a wash :OMG:

    Ok, I'm willing to try the triple flanged sleeves. Do they give as good of bass response as the other style?
