Another One Bites the Dust

The wire/plug of my in-ear headphones has started flaking out, so I switched to the iPod stock earbuds. I had forgotten how annoying earbuds are.

On the short walk from home to the metro, they fell out of my ear twice, and they keep moving around, needing to adjust them all the time, with sound levels varying all the time. On the upside, I can hear my surroundings better, but right now, in the metro, it turned into a negative. Forget hearing any subtleties, too...

To be clear, I'm not taking aim at the Apple earbuds, but at earbuds in general. Of note, Apple will soon offers in-ear headphones as an upgrade.
