Sennheiser MX90VC Earbuds
A key reason why many prefer over-the-ear headphones to earbuds is the problem of obtaining a stable fit. Unless the earbuds match a listener's ear canal very well, they can slip out or affect sound quality. Sennheiser just recently introduced a novel solution to the problem: its new MX90VC earbuds have a Twist-to-Fit function that uses a second bud to press against your earlobe and keep the main speakers directly in front of the ear canal. The MX90VC set also focuses on a greater sense of style through the rectangular shape of the casing. You can find them in stores right now for $80.
