Earbuds & Tragus Piercing

I have my tragus pierced on my left ear. The tragus is that little piece of cartiladge in front of the ear canal.

The Apple earbuds won't fit right in that ear. I can flip the ring up and it'll fit but won't stay in place. I've never found basic earbuds to be comfortable anyway.

Anyone find a good headphone solution for tragus piercings? I do have the "around the back of the head" headphones, but I don't think they'd be comfortable running with my shuffle.

Depending on the position of the piercing, in-ear earbuds will probably do nicely for you. Specifically the Sony MDR-EX51's/EX71's, because they are pretty small and shouldn't interfere with your piercing. If you're concerned about them falling out while you're running, then the Sony MDR-EX81's will work. They are basically the same design, but with a behind the ear clip attached.

If you don't like in-ear types, then your only other option with running as a factor would be clip-on types (like the Koss KSC75's or something similar) or the behind the head style which you already own.
