How to take the moulds of your ears.

Some Suggestions for Optimal Listening
If you buy a basic one size fits all car, you can probably get in it and drive off with no problems. If, on the other hand, you buy a Ferrari, you will probably stall it on your first attempt at driving it and even after that you may crash and burn. Ferrari’s are not for everyone and they are not for the everyday commute. But when you know how to drive a Ferrari, you enjoy an extraordinary experience every time you get behind the wheel.
Similarly, huskies are beautiful dogs, but they are special and not for everyone. In fact they are not normal domesticated dogs as we know them (in my humble opinion). You need to really love dogs to make a go of it with a husky. And even then they will challenge you from time-to-time. But when you get it right with them, the rewards are enormous and you’ll be glad you didn’t buy a Labrador. Lovely as they are, Labradors occupy a different place in the universe to huskies. Give me a husky any day over a normal dog.
“What the hell is this guy going on about” I hear you saying. “Get to the point!”.
My point is, it may take you a while to get the hang of your DEEPSOUND earpods, but I encourage you to persevere until you have that “OK now I hear what all the fuss is about”.
For some people they don’t work well on the first attempt. There are several things you can do to try and get them to “sing” for you.
There is a sweet spot where the earbuds are in the right position in your ears. When you hit the sweet spot you can hear the difference. And when this happens, you are locked-and-loaded (apologies for the mixed metaphors, but we are breaking some rules and norms here).
They need more “juice” than normal earphones because they are pumping sound energy into a larger surface area in your ear and ear canal – this is why the sound so full. So you may need to play music at a higher volume to appreciate what your earpods have to offer (caveats regarding what loud music does to your hearing – i.e. it can make you deaf, so please use common sense). Having said that, a pre-amp may make you smile like a crazy person – however, I just use my phone normally and it is fine.
What a Faff
Sometimes it is a “faff” to get them to connect with your ears in the sweet spot. Don’t lose patience, with practice you will get the sweet spot every time.
They Get Better with Use
I have found, and people have backed me up on this, they get better with use. I’m still trying to figure out why, but they seem to sit in your ears better with use. And it is true the more you use them, the better you get at inserting them. And also the sound drivers can sound better as they “bed in”.
Inserting the Earbuds – More Art than Science
I put my index finger or thumb where the speaker is and use this as a constant reference point. Normally my index finger (or thumb) is at the back of the earbud. I then twist the earbud into my ear, rather then just push it in. I think you will probably figure out your preferred way of inserting them. There is no one best way.
Playing with Your EQ
You may find you get a much better sound if you play around with the EQ settings on your device. I have found my Samsung phone and iPhone sound quite different with the same pair of earpods. And, as an aside, while I prefer my iPhone for most things, my Samsung is much better for playing music (IMHO).
After a While They Become Uncomfortable
Sometimes after 30 minutes or so one or both earbuds becomes a little uncomfortable. I find simply pulling them out ever so slightly or giving a slight twist solves this problem. I also find that sometimes, after a while, I don’t need the headband anymore – I don’t need that extra bit of pressure to get the full sound and so I take off the headband and just listen with the earbuds in my ears.
