I have narrow ear holes so these inner ear jobbies never fit. The block out so much of the ambient sound that I am not sure that I would want to wear them anyway. Any recommendations for non-inner ear sport headphones (that means a hook like this and a shorter lead. Sometimes they are "sport look" and don't come with a shorter lead.

Might give these a go because headphones don't survive my Bear Grylls-style exercise pursuits for long. The price is also not so high as to cause distress if I discover they're no good.

For me, the problem with such earphones with "oval rubber ring clip" as well as those heavy headphones is that they cause outer ear pain if I wear them for more than one hour.
