    Default conch! :]

    ive decided to finally pierce my conch. :]
    one question though before i do it..
    does a conch piercing get in the way of ear bud headphones,
    kinda like the ones used for an ipod?

    It shouldn't do at all. The earphones pretty much fit into the ear canal. The ball of your barbell shouldn't reach out of your ear so far as to be near the opening of your ear-canal. Take into account the placement you want to go for...

    it depends on the placement but i have both of mine done and i wear my earphones with no problems!!!! put your earphones in and see where they sit and then you can have a rough idea of where to get your conch done!!!

    I guess i'll find this out in a couple of days considering I had my conch pierced today. I have had mine placed very high though so I can fit another underneath.

    If you get if positioned in just the right location, the jewellery can actually help hold the earphone in place... if you happen to have earphones that easily fall out that is. Don't laugh, they do fall out sometimes, like when doing exercise and stuff ! :roll:

    I've never had any problems with my conch and earbud headphones either with a barbell or a BCR.
    Infact I agree with Chumley that it even helps hold them in place.
    Especially when I do exercise (pah!)
