That is exactly the problem these were designed to fix. While no one can guarantee they will fit you specifically, the design has been perfected over the last three years in order to fit properly in a very large spectrum of human ear shapes.

the new ear pods are designed from over 3 years of testing. Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the new Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.

Rather than 'plugging' your ear, as most ear bud type earphones do, the Earpods have more of a funnel shape which allows them to rest inside your ear canal. The graduated slope of the Earpods means that they are more likely to fit a greater number of people's ear canals and, importanly, they are more likely to stay inside. You should find these to be a much more 'tailored' fit.

The oblong shape is designed to fit the shape of your ear canal, where as the ear buds are circular and must be pushed into your ear.

Apple hasn't designed an ear bud this different for the past 10 years. The new EarPods are truly unique, as explained in the official EarPod video.
