The Earbud Blues

October 21, 2010

EarbudsColumnist David Pogue published a funny (and useful) column yesterday in the New York Times, where he describes various problems that people have wearing earbuds (see Battling the Earbud-Wearing Blues).

Like me, you might have been born without an antitragus. That’s the little lower-edge wall of cartilage that would hold earbuds in place. (I never knew of my hideous deformity until the invention of the iPod.)

If you’ve ever been off in your own world listening to your media player and experienced discomfort, then this article may help you. Pogue describes a myriad of devices designed to accommodate just about any set of ears. Beware, though! You may not like the price tag. Some of these little beauties cost more $300!
