Huh, yeah. Maybe we're in the same boat then. I've never really found a pair of in-ears that sounded even close to good. It's always like my canal makes the tips close or something and it just mutes everything. I know they make those custom ones where you can mold them and all of that shit, but I don't feel like spending 100s of dollars on a maybe. Plus I guess I'm not in many situations where I'd prefer music that would necessitate headphones whenever I'm working out. Don't like running with music and if I'm lifting I'm at home so I just play whatever I want through a speaker.
