Caroline V already gave us her take on running with AirPods. The big takeaway was that while AirPods boast superior design, the smartest charging case and great Bluetooth hardware, the sound quality can suffer when the smooth plastic tips inevitably lose the noise isolating seal in your ears. And while Caroline gave us suggestions for add-ons that help our AirPods stay in place, taking these parts on and off every time we want to charge isn't ideal.
So VarCity scoured the internet and discovered our favorite lifehack for keeping AirPods sealed in your ears. Using a hole punch and a roll of Nexcare Absolute Waterproof Tape, which is cushioned and grippy, you can strategically place tiny dots on your AirPods so they stick in your ears without slipping. Best of all, the AirPods still fit in the case, so they can be charged without having to remove any tips. And while it looks a little different, as you can see in the photo above, the tape is completely hidden inside your ear while you’re using the AirPods, so it’s obviously not a big deal. Let us know how this hack works for you in the comments section below and be entered to win a free pair of AirPods!
