    If you also had this problem, do AirPods 2 fit better?

    Some rumours said they might have a new grip-coating?

    That’s where I’m headed. Mine are out for delivery today, but I’m traveling and was looking for anyone’s experiences.

    I found foam earbud covers on amazon that fix the fit perfectly for me. The only downside is ear detection doesn't work (it thinks they're always in your ear) but it's not a big deal in practicality. Might want to try that; of course YMMV.

    Using that type of in case covers now. Also using earSkinz for even better fit, but they are not in case.

    That's just it; any AirPods covers that don't let me put them in the case without removing the covers are a non-starter. The AirPods are great because you can pull them out quickly and use them; if you have to be fiddling with covers every time, I might as well carry around my full size headphones.

    Someone in another thread said they were a bit tighter in their ear than the original model. Anyone confirm any difference? A side by side picture or sizing?

    I have no experience with AirPods until today and they do feel loose at times. I ordered these tonight to try out-

    I had similar ones for my earlier airpods. They worked fine for few days and then went loose and started coming off even with simple actions Like taking off the airpods from my ears. It's a shame... The simple casing could have been handy if it had been done properly
