For a little over 3 weeks, I was an in-ear bud person, and although the headset I used (the H/K SOHO II) was utterly fantastic in terms or sound quality, ultimately in-ear or not in-ear comes down to preference.
Rating these in-ear buds against other ones that I have used, the comfort level was higher than the rest, but perhaps my ears are just too small, or just not built for in-ear buds. I have a headset on for sometimes 5-8 hours a day, and I will not lie, my ears hurt having something in them for that long (I however, used to only be able to go about 2 hours before). I really was impressed with the sound quality on this headset though - and the noise canceling feature. Often, to give an ear a rest, I would take out one ear bud and leave the other in. I was amazed at how well I still heard the call I was on, even with the background noise of the other ear.
I did, per my last blog, wear the headphones while I worked out. And again, I think I am just not an in-ear bud kind of person. The sound was great, but I couldn't keep them in my ears.
It is the best headset for in-ear buds I have ever tried, and if you have someone where crystal clear sound is important (conference calls, or music) and they like in-ear buds, this is the headset you should get them. If you haven't tried in-ear buds, and want to, I would say try these out first before others.
In the meantime, I am going to go back to my ear-muff sized headphones. I'll give my ears a rest, and maybe try again in a month or so.
