    Greetings:)
    I wonder if anyone can recommend replacement headset for desire.I am not looking for "in ear bud"variety but "headphone" variety.
    My ear holes must be a funny shape:rolleyes: and most of the in ear buds don't stay in.I will be using them for listening to Radio and music primarily,so sterio sound will be essential and obviously will need the ?aerial in the wire.....is that right.Sorry sounds noobish,which I am I guess:D
    Many thanks for your advice.
    Kind regards.

    For some reason, every other Swedish person seems to be using these (I live in Sweden). It's kind of freaky - they really like this brand and I ask why and they say it's because of the sound.

    Can't be for sure, but see if you can find a pair to try out. Good luck.

    Have you tried the different size of buds when using the in-ear headphones? That's the most important thing to getting a good fit. I use in-ear headphones and could never go back to the traditional type now.

    Yes I have......yes I do have funny ear holes:eek:,the other point is they need to have built in aerial so that I can listed to the radio as well.
    Tall order?
    thanks for your replies and suggestions though.

    I've never been able to use in ear ones either...
    I use Sennheiser PX200-II, because of the sound and the fact they're foldable so I can actually carry them around without wearing them:

    I don't think you need to worry about the aerial, AFAIK, the cable of any heaphone acts as one....

    Thank you gentlemen for all the advice:)

    @Ghashul......and what about radio through them?
    I had a look and like them but I want to be sure that they pick up radio signal.
    Thanks
    No offence Banziban :)

    In-ear headphones have never fitted for me either. I just wrap the wire over my ear and use the headphone 'upside down' - much the same effect as these ones. Stays in okay when sitting at a desk, not sure about out running etc..


    That's how I understand the setup too :)

    Just to re-iterate. Besides traditional headphones, you could try in-canal earphones. My wife also has funny shaped ears, and most earphones just fall out. However, I have bought her some in-canal earphones which sit in the ear canal like ear plugs. There are many manufacturers who make them (eg, Sony, Sennheisser, Skull Candy, V-Moda etc.) They all usually come with at least 3 different-sized ear buds to fit most ear canal sizes. They are very light, tend to be able to give you more bass, and as a bonus, do block out some external noise like ear plugs do (be careful on the road!). Most of the manufacturers also make a model with a built-in mike so that you can use it as a hand-free kit.
