Fit

Fit:
"One complaint is the end doesn't *quite* fit through the hole of the Thule case for the iPhone 6."
_
"For me I have to constantly keep adjusting the bud in my ear to hear more fully but I have small ears and most, if not all buds never fit in my ear so this is my own personal problem and does not affect the rating."
_
"The quality of the music is just fine but the fit is horrible."
_
"They are not comfortable, and could barely fit over my ears (and yes, I extended the crummy rubber loop bit the whole 1 cm it could afford).Sweat resistant might as well have a huge asterisk for, we lightly misted the room they were in for 0.01 seconds."
_
"The fit is terrible for anyone without large ears."
_
"Great fit, great sound, I have a little problem with the sweat but still works great."
_
"Perfect fit for athletic workouts."
_
"The fit is fantastic."
_
"They fit comfortably while on but if you wear earrings constantly, it hurts a little when you put them on and take them off because of the little tug when putting them on or taking them off."
_
"They fit good , sound great .would like volume control on wire lead or would b 5 star."
_
"Great fit!"
