If you’re reading this, it probably means you own a pair of AirPods. And if that’s the case, you’ve probably had your share of anxious moments when using them. Perhaps they fell out while jogging, or maybe they kept falling out of your ears while taking a walk. Whatever the case may be, we all have our fair share of struggles when it comes to properly keep our AirPods in place at all times. Thankfully though, there are several ways to prevent your AirPods from falling out and keep them in place. This article will cover various methods for keeping your AirPods secure so that this issue doesn’t continue to plague you.
How To Not Lose Airpods
Check Your Ear Hooks
The first step you can take when trying to keep your AirPods from falling out is to make sure that your ear hooks are in place. The AirPods come with a pair of silicone ear hooks that are meant to stick onto the ridges of your ear so that they don’t fall off. If you’ve been using your AirPods for a while, it’s likely that your ear hooks may have lost their stickiness. In that case, you can either clean your ear hooks with alcohol so that they regain their stickiness, or replace them altogether with new ones. New ear hooks are easily available online through sites like Amazon and eBay. Alternatively, you can also get them from the Apple store if you’re nearby.
Use The Breathe-e Comfort Tips
In addition to using the ear hooks, you can also try using the Breathe-e Comfort Tips. These are special tips that come with a few holes in them to allow airflow so that your AirPods don’t become too hot while you’re using them. The Breathe-e Comfort Tips can be easily attached to your AirPods by sliding them over the earbuds. They’re recommended for use in warmer weather when your AirPods are more likely to become too hot from constant use. The Breathe-e Comfort Tips are especially handy when you’re outdoors in hotter temperatures and constantly using your AirPods like while jogging, swimming, or hiking. The Breathe-e Comfort Tips are available in several different colors so you can pick your favorite.
Double Check The Fit of Your Ear Holes
Another common mistake people make is assuming that their ear holes are too small when they’re actually just fine. If you’re using AirPods with default Ear Holes, it’s important to make sure that they fit tightly into your ear holes. If they feel loose or they fall out too easily, they’re probably not fitted tightly enough. In that case, you can try adjusting the size of your Ear Holes by cutting them a little shorter. To do that, you’ll want to take a pair of scissors and cut the Ear Hole at an angle so that it’s a little shorter. Then, use the Silicone Ear Loop that comes with your AirPods to hold the Ear Hole in place and let it dry overnight so that the cut edge doesn’t fray. Once the cut edge has dried, you can use the Ear Loop to affix the adjusted Ear Hole onto your AirPods.
Adjust The Length of the Ear Hooks
Next, you can also try adjusting the length of your ear hooks. The default length is medium, so if your AirPods still have issues staying in your ears even after adjusting the size of the Ear Holes, try adjusting the length of your ear hooks as well. To do that, use a pair of scissors to cut the ear hooks shorter or longer accordingly. It’s important to remember to leave enough room at the end of the ear hooks so that they don’t interfere with the charging port. Once you’ve cut the length of both ear hooks, use sandpaper to smooth out the cut edges so that they don’t fray.
Tighten the AirPods’ Grip Using a Finger
Sometimes, your AirPods may just be too loose and fall out from just the slightest touch. In that case, you can try tightening their grip by using a finger to press them in place. Simply use your thumb and index finger to press the AirPods against your ears while they’re in use. This will make them stay put when you need them to and still be comfortable when you don’t. This trick may not be as effective for those who prefer to wear their AirPods in their ears for long periods of time. It’s best used if you’re just trying to keep your AirPods from falling out while jogging, swimming, or exercising.
What’s The Best Way To Keep Track Of Your Airpods?
Use the AirPods app
The AirPods app is a great way to keep track of your AirPods, check battery life, and more. You can even use them to manage your Apple Pay transactions. The only problem is that you need to download the app on a Mac or PC first before you can use it on an iPhone or iPad. However, if you’re an Android user, there’s an easy workaround for this.
Use the Find My iPhone feature
If you have to Find My iPhone enabled on your iOS device, you can use it to locate your lost AirPods by simply using their Bluetooth signal as a trigger for the feature. If this happens, just open up the AirPods app and tap “Find my AirPod.” Your phone will then begin scanning for Bluetooth signals from nearby devices and display a map with all of them marked in red if it detects any nearby devices using Bluetooth 4.0 or higher that are broadcasting their signal in order to find them (be sure to enable Bluetooth in Settings > General > Bluetooth). Once they’re located, tap on their name and they’ll be displayed with a message like “Your AirPod has been found!” You can also see what other people are saying about finding your missing pair of ear pods here too!
Use the “Lost Mode” feature of iOS 8/9/10
iOS 8 introduced the “Find My iPhone” feature which allows you to locate any iOS device by simply using its Wi-Fi, cellular, or satellite network connection as a trigger for the feature. This means that if you were to lose your AirPods (and didn’t have to Find My iPhone enabled), all you need to do is open up the AirPods app and tap on “Lost Mode.” You’ll then be able to see where they are located in relation to you via a map and get directions back home if needed.
5 AirPods Features:
Remote Volume Control
While you can control the volume of your AirPods with the “Play/Pause” button on the right earbud, it’s not very convenient. The only other option is to use the volume buttons on your iPhone or iPad, which can get a little annoying when you’re trying to multitask while listening to music or watching a movie. Thankfully, there’s an app that lets you control your AirPods’ volume remotely.
This feature comes in handy if someone calls you while you’re listening to music or watching a movie. You’ll be able to see who called and accept or reject their call with just one tap by swiping up from the bottom edge of your screen (the same gesture used for opening the Control Center). This feature is also available on Android devices via this app.
Find My AirPod (iOS 8)
If you lose your AirPods, all you need to do is open up the “Find My iPhone” app (from Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone) and select “Lost Mode.” Then, just try placing them back in their charging case for about 30 seconds before opening them up again so that they’ll send out a signal in search mode again! If they’re still nowhere in sight after 30 seconds, tap “Report Lost” and it will be added to Apple’s database of lost devices so that they can be recovered later! If they are found again, Apple will send you text messages to notify you that they have been found and if you’re nearby, it will notify you of the exact location.
AirPod Battery Life
The AirPods’ battery life varies depending on what type of use they’re subjected to. If you’re constantly listening to music, watching videos, or playing games on your iPhone or iPad, their battery life will last for about 3-4 hours before needing a recharge. If you’re listening to music for about an hour each day and then playing games for an hour each day, the battery life could last up to 10 hours before needing a recharge. If you’re constantly using them like this and don’t use them too often (like at all), the battery life could last up to 20 hours before needing a recharge!
If your AirPods are running out of battery or aren’t connected properly (like if they fall out while charging), just pull out one of the earbuds and hold down on it until the light in the earbud turns green again (this should help with connectivity issues). Then just plug it back in!
AirPods were designed to be a convenient and easy-to-use pair of earbuds. However, it’s important to remember that nothing is perfect. AirPods are no exception to that rule and can sometimes have issues staying in place. Fortunately, there are many ways to keep them from falling out. You can check your ear hooks, use the Breathe-e Comfort Tips, double-check the fit of your ear holes, or adjust the length of the ear hooks. If you follow these tips, you’ll find that your AirPods stay put like they should and are much easier to keep in place without hassle.
Q: Can I use the AirPods in my ears?
A: Yes! The AirPods are designed to be used in your ears and will fit perfectly. If they don’t fit in your ears, you can use the tips to help make them fit. Just place them in your ear, push them down, then pull them out and try again.
Q: How do I take off the AirPods?
A: There are two ways to take off the AirPods; with one quick tug or by pulling them up at a slight angle with your fingers.
Q: How long do the batteries last?
A: Battery life varies depending on what you’re doing while using the AirPods and how often you’re using them. For best results, we recommend turning off Bluetooth once you’ve finished listening to music or taking a call. If you’re not connected to anything for about 20 minutes, then turn it back on and it should jump right back into receiving a signal from your device again!
