What Earbuds Size Should You Use?

The pre-installed medium size ear tip on the earphones is an excellent place to start when looking for the best fit for you. Because ear canal sizes can vary, you could discover that utilizing two ear tips of different sizes is the best choice for you. There are a few approaches you can attempt in order to discover the best fit for you.

Method 1: Place the earphone in your ear so that it is firmly in place. To check if you have a good seal, try playing some audio. If not, try again after changing the ear tip size on the headphones.

Method 2: Start with your little finger and softly insert your fingers inside your ears. As soon as you achieve a sound seal and outside noise is muffled, move to the following finger on each hand. Next, try to match that finger's size to one of the available ear tip sizes.

Your first encounter with in-ear earphones/IEMs may not be positive if you are new to them. Earphones require an airtight connection between the ear tip and ear canal, which many individuals find uncomfortable.

The following are the short steps for a newbie to achieve the greatest, safest, and most comfortable fit to go with full sound:

Does the wire of your earphone go over your ear, down your neck, or both? I have observed individuals using over-the-ear headphones with the cord dangling, which is a terrible situation. The appropriate wear style should be displayed on the product website or package. Additionally, be careful to adhere to the left/right markers.

Use ear tips that are the right size. Various sized ear tips are typically included with headphones. You can find the perfect balance of comfort, security, and high-quality sound by trying all the sizes that the earphones came in. Even if you already have an idea of the size of your ear or ear canal, certain ear tips might fit more comfortably than others. 

For instance, a small ear tip will enable the earphone to fit deeper if you have medium-sized ear canals, which may produce better results. Or depending on the size of your ear or the style of over-the-ear use, a larger ear tip may sit further out for more comfort and still stay in place.

Change the direction in which the nozzle enters your ear canal. The nozzle should also be pointed in that direction because ear canals are inclined forward and upward. Try several angles with various ear tips to find what feels the best and offers the best seal and comfort after or while inserting an earphone.

Change the insertion depth. However, the sound quality varies as some earphones sound better with a shallow insertion while others sound better with a deep insertion. Generally speaking, the stronger the seal and isolation, the deeper the insertion, although sound quality varies. Try various insertion depths until you find the one that works best for you and the specific earphone.

Lessen the cable noise. Microphonics is the term for cable noise that results from the cable rubbing against clothing or other items. If your earphone includes micro photonics, there are some techniques to decrease or eradicate them.

  1. Try to wear the cable over the ear if your earphones have a cable-down configuration.
  2. Tighten the cable cinch, a slider that joins the two parts of the cable past the Y-split, where the cable divides into sections for each channel.
  3. Cover the cable with clothing. The cord should be worn behind your back. This might be effective when you're moving around, but it usually won't work when you're engaged in activities like working at a desk.
  4. One pair of headphones may work perfectly with one setup, but another may need a completely different one because of differences in form, design, ear tip style, etc. To get the optimum performance from different earphones, it is advisable to repeat this method for each pair.
