So, I think I'd got it, but, it sure does feel like I practically need to embed those things into my brain. I like that they don't fall out like the standard earbuds, but man, I dunno. :o

It doesn't work, but moving up to the next size tip, and not being afraid to ensure that they're firmly inserted, seemed to do the trick. They sound great, and I suspect, they'll become more...
