What are the best mobile headphones for sensitive ears?

I have tried the in ear buds as well as the over the ear headphones. I've tried Apple's new redesigned ear buds but all of them make my ears sore after a short time. Are there any headphones out there that are more comfortable for sensitive ears?

Evening LoLo! know it's been a while since you asked.. but have the same problem and so far found the higher priced Brookstone Store Brand ones actually are not bad, and they sound great! If you have found any others or do, please let me know? I have quite narrow ear canal openings and most really bother me. Thanks!:-).

Thank you, wittepier! I ended up purchasing some Bose over the ear, noise cancelling headphones, which are very nice. They aren't as portable as the in-ear headphones, but they aren't huge either - nice and compact. They'll do for now and they are comfortable. I'll check out the ones you mention the next time I'm near Brookstone. Thanks for your recommendation :o)

So far, I love them. Even my husband loves them and he keeps stealing them from me :o) I purchased them for around $129 at Costco. They are small, outside the ear headphones and are very comfortable.

Here are the ones I got at Costco. I found them on Amazon, but Costco was cheaper. Anyway, you can read the reviews here on Amazon:

Cool! Will foreward this to Dad in Law, maybe between the two of them?? ha!
Is truly funny sometimes how mixed up they can get things! But since they're always trying to find something I really need and like, figure this will be perfect, and this way they can just order and have it shipped directly.
Thanks again, will let you know if I end up with the right pair. :-).

btw, you did get a good deal aye? Does Costco carry certain items like this on a regular basis, or is it like many of the Box stores? hit and miss?
Report as
Yes, at Costco, they were $129.00, which is excellent for Bose. Costco usually has different items at different times of the year. I had never seen these there before, but they are still there now - a few weeks after I purchased them, so it might have just been their seasonal item for this year.

The best mobile headphones for sensitive ears is Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones. It features luxurious ear pads that protect the ear and allow you to listen for long session without feeling pain. It has also been designed using Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement technology making it have an outstanding performance.

Thank you, sarahngoche. Those look great, but they are way too big to be mobile. I'm looking for something more portable.

Look at your local GameStop for some head phones.

Mr. Wayne emailed Eric about that kid. He couldn't come up with anymore comebacks to my logic so just kept repeating himself. Report it, he'll be on a 3 hour comment break sooner or later.
