Unsound Design

I'm not a fan of earbuds. The darn things never fit snuggly inside my ears, even when I'm sitting perfectly still. Maybe my ear holes are grotesquely misshapen. I don't know. But what I do know is that Shure Inc.'s new SE530PTH earphones, in some ways, give earbuds a good name.

Not only do the company's sleek, reflective metallic buds look stylish, but they also stay inside your ears, even with a moderate range of movement. This has to do with the -rubber-tipped earphones that wedge inside the ear canal, rather than resting on the outer ear like Apple's signature -white earbuds.
