Exclamation Help! Uncomfortable ear buds!

I love the Sanyo mp3 player I got for Christmas and am happily putting music on it. One problem - the darned ear buds that come with it are very uncomfortable and fall out of my ears. I prefer the fidelity and size of the ear buds over conventional headphones - no one else seems to have this problem (maybe I have small ears, who knows?).

Any recommendations?

The ear buds fall out of my ears too. Its a pain in the butt. I've had the most success with headphones like this:

I have been using these for years and years:

The foam enables you to squish the bud into YOUR ear. Once you get used to fitting them in your ear, they rarely fall out. And good sound and excellent price, too.

I also switched to the same design as mandalinn. Since them I haven't had any problems.

I could never use ear buds because they felt too weird in my ears. Then I got these from Amazon.com and they worked really well for me.

Yea, I hate ear buds too because they fall out too easily and my ears actually hurt when they're jammed in -- so I use ear clips instead (they feel a little weird at first but are very easy to get used to)

The below brand is my fave - and only a lil over $10 (now, I'm not a stickler for sound quality so I can't be sure that these are the top-of-the-line, but for casual mp3 player listening during my walks & strolls, these work great & are a comfortable fit)
