My Never-Ending Search for Comfortable In-Ear Headphones

I'm a headphone junkie. I have headphones in all shapes and sizes, but there's one small problem: I don't like things that dig deep into my ears, which most traditional in-ear headphones do. So I've embarked on a search for more comfortable options...and it's been more complicated than I expected.
Some people have no problem with in-ear headphones, but there seems to be a group of us that absolutely hate them. It must be the size or shape of our ears, because I have numerous problems with in-ear headphones that otherwise come well reviewed—they hurt, they don't stay in my ears, and none of the sizes seem to fit me. So what's a headphone junkie to do?
I've spent the past few months trying out different tricks, products, and DIY solutions for more comfortable in-ear headphones. After a lot of trial and error, I found a few things that worked—some better than others—and gave me the beautiful mix of comfort and portability I've been looking for. Which method you use depends on the headphone, how much you're willing to spend, and—most of all—your preferences (both when it comes to sound and comfort).
