Re: QC Earbuds falling out of ear
So glad to find I'm not the only person with an issue.
I had the QC20 and SoundSport Frees for probably six years combined and loved both of them. They were the only earbuds I've ever tried that were both comfortable and stayed in my ear with almost no problem. The SoundSports sometimes had to be adjusted after a couple miles of running, but that's no reason to complain. I used the medium for both models with no problems at all.
On the QC Earbuds, the medium is too big - if I push the tip to sit under the top of the concha like it's supposed to, it just pops right back out within a few moments, particularly if I move my head at all. The small is too small - it doesn't feel like it's grabbing on to my ear at all and constantly feels like it's falling out, and the tip is too small to stay in the concha. I don't know if the actual sizes are different, or the friction of the different materials makes it a problem, or some combination of the two, but man I wish Bose would simply go back to the old design. It was great.
I just don't get it. Both the QC20s and the Soundsport Frees were widely regarded by so many as the most comfortable earbuds on the market. Why try to fix what wasn't broken, Bose?
