It's a Marshmallow World

I have rather miniature ears to go along with my miniature head and miniature everything else.  Back in the day, I was rather distraught about highly uncomfortable earbuds and always ended up with the kind of headphones that hook over your ear and cause bouncy troubles while running. 
Upon complaining to my friend in a random gym encounter, he said, "I love Marshmallows, you should give 'em a try!"  Naturally, my first thought was of someone stuffing actual marshmallows in their ears and I knew that couldn't be right.  He told me where to find some and on my shopping list they went. 

I've been in love with their "form to your ear" foam from the get-go.  In fact, I snatch some up whenever I see them on sale.  I'm not quite a germaphobe, but something that resides in your ear can only last so long.

I know this is entirely new information (yeah, right), but I go to the gym every day.  Do you know the kind of nastiness this brings upon unsuspecting earbuds?  (Please say this like Chandler from Friends and it sounds much cooler) Frequent replacement is a requirement in my book.

Recently, I gleefully opened up my most recent shipment of a 1/2 off pair and went to stash them in the waiting area.  But wait...what was this?  The waiting area was already occupied by three other pairs.  Oops!

I'm so glad you posted about this! I have the exact same problem with earbuds and I need a new pair since I lost the ones that go with my iPod. THANKS!

I'm considering getting a pair of these, since my current earbuds are driving me craaaaazy! They just won't stay in. I'll have to take a look the next time I'm at a store that might sell these...

I'm going to have to try these!! Unfortunately, the earpiece I'm referring to is one that our IT department gave us to go with our desk phones. I wonder if I can jimmy rig it...
