I thought Clear's earphones were comfortable, so when the company sent me their Ally ($ 149) earbuds, I expected the same. Fortunately, in addition to three sizes of silicone ear tips, they also include three ear wing tips, called Freebit wings, to heep the earplugs in place, regardless of ear size and type, and they do a great job. The solid fit, combined with noise cancellation, also helps block sound. They also look good and are sold in black or red.

Ally also does a good job in terms of battery life, with ten hours for allied earbuds and another twenty hours via the charging case. Still, I was hoping they would keep up with the latest from Apple and Qi-based wireless charging or at least use USB-C or Lightning instead of microUSB. The earbuds support IPX5 water and offer sweat resistance, making them good for exercise, including running in the rain. And you can easily access Siri with a two second push of the button.
