Excerpt: My Weird Ears I’ve always had weird ears. And because of this I’ve never been particularly happy with headphones. The moment I’ve inserted them as firmly as I can into my lugs then they pop out again of their own accord. This makes listening to music on the go particularly difficult. It looks odd walking along with your hands over your ears. I’ve even taken to wearing a hat to keep them in which is fine in winter but a little uncomfortable in summer.
