How do I find out what earbuds don't hurt my ears?

I tend to use 'backphones' (the ones that go around the back of the head), but the problem with those is that if I need to take them off, it's a bit difficult.
I've been looking at getting some earbuds, but I'd like to not go through three or four finding a pair that fits my ears. For information's sake, the Official Apple Earbuds cause me significant pain (enough that I can no longer stand to have them in) after about an hour's use.
I also don't have the money to have custom ones made.
I've googled, and the usual response is 'try them and see how they feel' but I would feel REALLY weird taking them back after an hour and a half.
