Received the ear buddy yesterday and mounted them on a golf cap and it makes a great difference in wearing my cannulas, I wear hearing aids and if I need to wear sunglasses when I am out the area around the top of my ears are under pretty stressful pressure. The Ear Buddy relieved some of the pressure. experienced some difficulty in mounting them on the cap, once mounted they are very secure

I ordered these for my dad, based on advice from my RN daughter. He loves them as they keep the tubing off his face. His skin is quite fragile and appreciates the relief from the constant dragging of the O2 tubing.
Excellent for hearing aid wearers.

Looked all over for something to keep my husband from losing his behind-the-ear hearing aids when adjusting his cannulas. These clips are absolutely perfect for this situation. Surprised they aren't marketed for this purpose.

the idea is great, the design limits me placing them on anything but the thinnest fabric. and in bed, rolling onto one of these clips reminds me of sleeping in hair curlers when i was a teen. thin it down, add a simple hinge so it would attach to larger pieces of fabric, and consider something to hold the tubing in place so it won't slip out over night. personally i'd consider making a headband of something light weight and adding the clips to the bottom.
Good but waaaay too expensive at $10

Work well but much too expensive. They probably pay about $1 for these or less.

Excellent Product, But seems expensive for bits of plastic. Keeps the tubing well away from my ears
Does what it say, but could be better optimized.

These helped to get the nasal cannula tubing off of my mother's ears, which gave her relief. However, they worked best with a hat, which meant that she wasn't comfortable wearing them for a very long period of time. I believe that the clips could be made such that they could be worn in longer hair (like barrettes or butterfly clips) instead of being attached to a larger hat/headband. We did attach them to alligator clips, in the end, and have been using them that way on and off.
Ear Buddies are Life Saver

Due to surgery for melanoma of his ear my husband has very little of his ear left and it was difficult and painful to hold the cannula in place. The ear buddies work GREAT. They relieve the pressure on the ear and holdmthe tubing in place. Even at night when attached to a headband or hat.

Picture shows clip onto ball cap but did not get message from ad that hat/cap required. Does not clip onto glasses. Not pleased at all ! ! !
Kind of works

The clips are a good idea but they are slick and come off too easily. Maybe need some ridges?
Ear pain avoidance

This is a fabulous product for anyone who suffers from ear pain from using a cannula. Most especially, if you also wear hearing aids. I used to get sores where the upper ear joins the head.
O2 Ear Buddies Miracle
Written By: Dr. M Speights, Jacksonville 1/11/2016
This device really solved the problem. My husband had sores behind both ears. My only concern is the wear of headbands 24-7 and whether it will cause poor circulation. The verdict is out on this one. Excellent device and will purchase more just in case they are missed placed in the skilled nursing facility.
Ear Buddies really work

Once I attached them to a cap (which wasn't that easy) they worked great. I wear glasses, hearing aids and an oxygen cannula. Together, they put a lot of stress on my ears. These really help.

Quick fix to the cannula rubbing on your ear. Love them!
Written By: Ed C, Kentucky 7/20/2014
a Top-shelf product here that really, really works... and works great! I have been on Oxygen therapy for 7 years, and not a lot in life hurts more aggravatingly than ear chafe caused by your cannula tubing. Ear Buddies solve this problem by taking the cannula off the ear entirely. They are very comfortable to wear to the extent that I don't even notice them. I intend to buy a couple more sets for spares. I most highly recommend Ear Buddies to anyone on oxygen.

My mother bought these for me. They gave me instant relief! No more sore ears!!
Written By: Joe S, Colorado 6/5/2014
I bought these at a medical trade show 2 years ago. I love them. They move on my headband when my cannula catches on something. And if they didnt move it would choke me!! They give you instant relief and I feel are a easy & cheap solution to using oxygen. And I still have the same pair! Love Them!!!
O2 Ear Buddies Oxygen Cannula Clips
Written By: Ed R, West Islip , NY 4/2/2014
They are good idea but should be better designed to hold the hose from falling out as well as a fastener to the headband I tried using while in bed.
no teeth won't hold
Written By: okie, oklahoma 3/31/2014
the idea is good but the engineering lacks. the part that attaches to clothing needs a spring clip that opens and teeth to hold it on . the part that is suppose to hold the hose is smooth and the hose slips out
