If you haven’t already, read Jim’s excellent, hands-on review of the AirPods, Apple’s wireless earpods.
Seems to me, the AirPods should stay in your ears just fine. As Jim says:
The AirPods actually fit my ears better than the wired EarPods. One explanation for this could be that the wires create a tension point using the EarPods to be pulled out of your ear a little bit.
This statement really resonated for me. When my Apple EarPods come out of my ears, it is always because of tension on the wires, caused by an unintentional tug from shirt, jacket, or some outside force.
I walked, jumped, ran, shook my head around, bent down, tipped over, and did every other move I could think of to make the AirPods fall out of my ears—they never did.
That said, if you are in an environment where you need a bit of safety, Amazon sells something called the AirPods strap. I actually think this would be useful in certain environments. For example, if you are moving around and find you need to take one or both AirPods out of your ear periodically. You could drape one AirPod over your shoulder and use the other as a counterbalance. You could even clip the strap to your shirt if you are in an environment where dropping one meant a drop from great height or into water.
Or you could just wear the wired EarPods.
