How To Get Earbuds To Stay In

If you’re a runner, swimmer, or just an avid exerciser you know that nothing comes with more benefits than a good pair of earbuds. They allow us to enjoy our favorite music while keeping track of our heartbeat and other important stats. However, there’s one small problem most people face when using earbuds… How do you keep them from falling out? It’s the most common problem people face when trying to find the best earbuds for their needs. With some methods, it feels like they will fall any moment now. Keeping them in is actually not that difficult once you know the secret tricks. Here are a few tips on how to get your earbuds to stay in so you can focus on your workout again:

How To Get Earbuds To Stay In?

  • Use a hair slide to keep the earbuds in your ears.
  • Use a rubber band to keep the earbuds in your ears.
  • Keep your earbuds in a bag to prevent them from falling out of your ears.
  • Tie around the outside of your earbud with a rubber band or something similar, and fasten with a small piece of tape at the end of the cord that you can pull out easily if you need to take it out or put it back into your case or bag.
  • Use a pair of socks that have holes for the ears and smooth fabric on both sides, then slide them over each earbud individually so that they fit into each ear canal perfectly, but are not too tight-they should be comfortable enough for you to wear them for long periods of time without discomfort-or you can use two pairs: one for each side and one pair for each ear (so there’s one pair per ear).
  • Cut a small hole in the side of each earbud, just large enough so that your ear can breathe through it. This will help prevent them from getting too warm.
  • Tie the cord in a knot around your neck or collarbone to keep them in place and out of the way when you’re running or exercising (the cord won’t get tangled). If you use one earbud, tie it around your neck with a knot at the end of the cord that you can pull out easily if you need to take it out or put it back into your case or bag. Or, if you use two earbuds, tie one around your neck with a knot at the end of the cord that you can pull out easily if you need to take it out or put it back into your case or bag, and then tie an overhand knot in one end of the second cord and then slide this second end of the cord through both loops on each side of the first cord and tie it off, then tie the second cord overhand at the end of that to keep them in place and out of the way when you’re running or exercising.
  • Put one earbud in your left ear, and one in your right ear, so that you can hear both sides of a conversation, but not feel trapped by only having one side to listen to.
  • Put them into an Altoids tin or other small container to keep them from getting tangled up with each other and falling out of your ears, or losing them altogether.
  • Use a pair of small earplugs connected by a piece of rubbery tubing (like for headphones) to create an airtight seal around your ears so that they won’t fall out as easily when you’re working out or running.
  • Use two pairs of headphones with different-sized tips: one pair for each ear canal (so there’s one pair per ear). You can use different brands, but be sure to buy the same size tip for each pair. If you use two pairs, one for each ear, tie the two cords together at the tips so that you can use one cord to connect them.
  • Use a pair of small earplugs connected by a piece of rubber tubing (like for headphones) to create an airtight seal around your ears so that they won’t fall out as easily when you’re working out or running.

How To Stop Earbuds From Falling Out?

  1. Make sure the earbuds are completely inserted into your ears.
  2. Make sure that the earbuds are not too tight.
  3. Try to insert them in a different position, i.e., try inserting them with some pressure in one ear, then in the other, and so on until you get used to it and can insert them comfortably in both ears at once.
  4. If you find that the buds fall out easily, try inserting them more firmly, or give yourself a little slack by pulling the cord out of your shirt or pants pocket a little before you insert it into your ears.
  5. If you find that they do not fall out easily, but they still move around while running or exercising, try using an athletic tape to hold them tighter against your head and increase their stability.
  6. If you find that they fall out easily, but are still comfortable and stable, see if you can adjust the size of the hole in the earbud by turning it around.
  7. If you cannot find any way to get the buds to stay in for more than a few minutes, try using an audio-Technica ear hook (available at most music stores). This is a small device that can be attached to the cord of your earbuds. It has a small hook on one end that fits into your outer ear and holds them securely in place. The other end of the hook has a single prong that hooks into your shirt collar or pants pocket when not in use.
  8. If none of these methods work, consider getting new earbuds or wearing different-sized earplugs since there may be some problem with your ears or with your new earbuds themselves.
  9. In case you have an old pair of headphones and they do not stay in your ears, you can try putting them in the freezer for a few minutes or submerging them in some hot water.
  10. If you are not sure whether you have an old pair of earbuds or not and they still fall out easily, consider getting new ones.
  11. If none of the above works, then consider buying a pair of earplugs or another type of ear muff that can be worn over your ears while exercising to keep your ears warm and prevent them from getting too cold.
  12. If none of these work and you want to get a new pair, try going to a store that sells music equipment like JBL, Sennheiser, or audio Technica and ask for help finding earbuds that fit comfortably in your ears (without falling out) with decent sound quality and stability.
