Will these work for people with a Tragus piercing?

I can't wear most earbuds regardless of brand because of Tragus piercings. I don't like old school headphones, and I'd like to find something similar to earbud type headphones that will work with my tragus piercings. I have a shallow, small ear as well.

  • It really depends on what jewellery you're planning to wear. If you just put sleepers in, you should be fine, because the side of the earbud will just bend around it, although it might be a bit tricky to take the headphones out again...

    If you wear an large enough ring (say, bigger than 1/2-inch diameter, it would get in the way of the earbud, thus not allowing a good seal to form around your ear canal (which is essential to good sound quality with in-ear designs).

    Of course, every ear is different, so I would certainly suggest taking a pair of sleepers, and your favourite pair of rings along to the Rockingham Park Apple Store, and try them out :-)
