Welcome to BB Forums!

Have you tried the different earpiece adapters? I tried three before I found one that was comfortable and snug.

Also the Jawbone goes (for the most part) straight across and does not angle down like the Motorola BT earpieces (that took a bit of getting used to).

Ewww.... ewwww! I have your answer!!! Use a jabra ear gel. They just slip rather tightly over the post. I use the long one so that it channels the audio deeper into your ear canal. It's twice as loud and comfortable. I still use the ear loop (others just leave it off). If it's hard to get on, bend it a little toward your head (if you hold it up to your ear bend in the direction of your head). Then I start with the end of the ear rotated and twist down as I put it on.

Enjoy! Great headset!

E-

I did the same thing with my Jawbone. I had two sets of Jabra ear gels from old headsets. They worked perfectly. Could wear it for hours without any issues. First headset I have ever owned where NO ONE has ever complained about noise.

Now I have a Jawbone2. Just got it. The fit with the OEM ear gels is infinitely better than the original and the loop, while optional, goes over the ear in a flash. I tried using it without, but the small gel was a touch too small and the medium one was a little too snug, so I chose the small one with the clip for now. I will play with it for another week or more deciding which combination I like better.
