After a bit of delays, Apple's new AirPods are finally on sale. The initial feedback has been good considering the audio quality, although there is the issue of them falling out. The design is shoddy, like Apple just cut the cords on the wired earphones. There is no cushioning or any sort of rubber tips to secure them in your ears.
We also heard that iFixit did a proper analysis of the wireless earbuds and called them a not cost-effective solution and also added that they are difficult to recycle.
If you are planning to buy or have already invested in a pair, chances are that you will need something to secure them in your ears. A crazy solution suggests that you get a needle, an ear lobe plug and of course tolerance to high levels of pain. This method suggested by an AirPods user uses stretched ear piercings to hold the AirPods in place. Sounds insane like having small cup-holders only for your earphones.
Of course there are more sane methods to keep your AirPods from falling. One is the $10 Spigen wire holder for the AirPods. The AirPods Strap latches onto the Apple AirPods, relieving you of all the misery that come with wireless earphones. It is an accessory for an accessory, but hey at least you don't have to pierce your ears for this one.
