Are you sure you picked the right size plugs? They come with different sizes. I love mine.

What type do you like?

They are really good

It's you, not the er6's.They take some getting used to, and have a variety of tips to fit different ears. I used them for many years in comfort. Maybe you should get some custom tips.

You should stop putting pieces of shit in your ears.

It's just plain unsanitary.

And while we're on the topic, what were the more comfortable pieces of shit you've put in your ears?

Same here.

I loved mine. Especially since they combined decent audio and actual rated hearing protection. Something you won't get with a pair of cheapies from Wal*Mart.

I really liked that last set of triple flanged clear-ish tips they made for them.

I like them still. when I'm Strolling to work they sound great.
When I am Trolling for fish, I use them.
I am using then right now, while I am feeding a Troll, and they sound great!

Waffles provides some extra baffling when I stuff them in my ears,, much quieter when riding.

I loved the 2 pairs I have owned over the years but since they are discontinued I had to go with the HF 5 which aren't nearly as comfortable. My only issue was that the wires became brittle.
