One of my ears is very slightly "misformed" or something along those lines. Not really noticeably visible, but when i try to put earbuds in it, they usually don't fit, and if they do, I have to really force it in and it gets uncomfortable after about 10 minutes. the stock ones that come with ipods do not fit that ear. So i was wondering if somebody could recommend a set of earbuds that comes with the best "fit kit" -- this way, maybe i can find something that fits it well without getting anything custom made.

ideas? Thanks!

Without ordering custom-made, the Shures have a number of foam and rubber inserts.

A cheap alternative is the ear buds for the standard iPod headphones, caps that fit in the ear.

I would say the Shure E3c ear buds. They have many versions but the E3c is probally the most common to find at a guitar shop or such. They are a bit pricy though. I think they have a cheaper version that is E2c.
