I find that wearing the earphones over the ear is more comfortable and has a better, more snug fit. You can get this same effect while wearing them straight down by just switching the ear buds to the opposite ear (left ear bud goes on right ear, right ear bud goes on left ear). This should have been the default labeling of L and R since the angled shape of the ear buds complements this fit. I guess since it's also meant to be used over the ear, labeling it as so could cause confusion.
you should just buy the comply t-100 tips because the ones that come with it just keep falling out(for me atleast) the comply ones are amazing it even sounds better however they are kinda of pricey 15 bucks for 3 pair It was definately worth it thought they make the s4's so much better highly recommended
Definitely agree with OP.. The annoying part about reversing up the ears is that it seems you lose a lot of base doing it this way. Then again if you wear them properly with L-R then they are sagging halfway out and youre losing your sound anyway. LOSE.... LOSE.... (Good headphones nevertheless)
