I've had these for a couple months and recently they started falling out of my ears often and when I put them back into my ears during a recording its very noticeable in the sound of course... kind of spoiled my last trip and I don't wish to repeat that.. Basically I'm always outside and moving when I'm recording accompanied by videoing


I've been trying to think of ways to set them up with ear clips to clip them onto my ears along with sticking them into my ears. Does anyone have any other ideas how I could set them up so I don't just have to rely on sticking them into my ears to have them stay in place? I've never recorded audio until I got these

Have you experimented with the different silicone ear plugs enclosed with the mics?
Also securing the cord to your clothes will relieve the downward pulling strain as well as reducing potential friction noise.
Olympus LS-10 Roland R-07 SONY PCM-A10 -> FEL Communications Clippy EM172 or Roland CS-10EM
iPhone 8 -> Shure MV88 or Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset

I'll look into some silicone ear plugs that might fit with the ear buds. The ones that came from Roland just seem too soft, and I'll invest into some clips, thanks. That seems like something obvious I should have done a long time ago, since I've seen so many others use them.

Taping them literally to my ears does sound appealing because of how seriously annoying they are


Over-ear clips for ear buds.

Ear clips made to attach to earbuds literally sounds like the perfect solution. Did a search on Amazon and they are a thing.

Let us know the result!

Side note: union member here, we get bused to a job site from an off-site office/freight yard on my current job.  A couple of months ago, there was a laborer/"rapper" on one of the crews.  One morning out of nowhere, the dude just starts spitting lyrics and the bus goes silent to hear him rap.  He was sitting a few seats over from me.  I took one look at his earbuds... and as everyone was getting out at the job site... I asked him how he thought his recording would turn out.  He tried to play coy for a second, they I gave him a look and told him I knew his headphones were mics as well.  We had a good laugh and he told me I was the first person to know that they mics and headphones-in-one.  Hashtag: bonding.
