If your big toe goes through the hole in the sock, you have it on correctly.

Cool They kill my ears

I find the headphones to be very uncomfortable after about 5 minutes of wearing them. They feel like they are digging into my ears and actually cause pain. If Bose or someone else comes up with a better design, I would definately buy them!

I agree. I never understood all of the complaints. The headphones aren't that bad! However, I live near a repeater, so I rarely use them...

I think the people that don't mind the headphones have big giant ear canals.

For me they start to "pinch" in my ear and make my ear go all red. It's my body telling me about the pain not me complaining just because they are uncomfortable(hence the red).

As the late great Dr. Zachary Smith once said "Ohhhh the Pain!"

I run with them alot, and havent had that bad a time.

I wonder if the new deal with Altec Lansing will allow new headphones or maybe a nice running hat to be made? I bet they could make something with evern better reception on the top of a baseball cap.

Unhappy

Today is the first time I've had to wear these headphones for an extended period of time, and I can tell you, they're horrible...

I decided to stay at a motel south of Indianapolis, on the edge of a repeater, and if I want to listen to my Sirius, I have to use the headphones. I can't wait to get on the road again tomorrow. Back to listening in the car dock...
