The Wrong Kind of Ears

The year hasn't got off to the best of starts so far. I seem to have stirred up a dust allergy for Mrs Q; I've broken (another) teapot; and this morning the heating was roasting, until I discovered one of those charity bags helpfully wedged part-way through the letterbox to ensure a continuous supply of cold air to the thermostat.

In other news, I've finally got an iPod and am currently discovering how little iTunes knows about my CD collection. The sound quality from the earphones is great, when they are placed in just the right spot. However, I'm finding it very difficult to keep them there. A little research on Teh Interweb suggests this is not an uncommon problem, though no-one seems to have guaranteed solutions. Whoever would have thought Apple would come up with something so irritatingly unergonomic? As far as I can tell, all they would need is a bit of flexibility to keep them perched correctly - it appears my ears are on the small side. Do any of you Young People have suggestions on how to solve this?
