Do great quality earbuds (that don't go into the ear canal) exist?

    Hi there,

    After trying many pairs of 'ear canal' earphones I've accepted that I just can't get comfortable with them; they hurt and feel insecure - I'm guessing my ears are too small or something, I've even tried ones that stated they were for small ears.

    Anyway, I usually use cheapy Sennheiser MX170s which are fine, but I'd now like some with a remote for listening to music on my Samsung phone, and if I'm buying a new pair anyway I thought it would be nice to increase the budget to get something better as well.

    It seems though that pretty much all of the higher end earphones are the canal ones, so I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a great pair of regular earphones?

    Yuin makes several, and while I haven't heard them, Massdrop has been selling them with no complaints.
