    Hi everyone.

    I bought the new AirPods and they fit perfectly when biking and walking. But today I took them out for a run, and at first I found I had to push them back in every 3 minutes or so due to the velocity of each footstep rocking them slightly loose. Later when I started to sweat it became worse. I had to take out the right one and hold it in my hand, while the left one sat somewhat decently but just needed a push every few minutes.

    I was thinking I need to get some silicone buds that I can put on when running to make them stay put. I won’t be using them for daily use - just for running. Any good recommendations?

    Unfortunately no. But I got used to putting them on and taking them off pretty quickly. I use an old Oakley sunglass bag to keep the AirPods case and the Earkinz in. The AirPods would fall out of my ears if I didn't use some kind of covering.

    I just ordered a set of the new Airpods so I may try some DIY modding on the old case to see if I can get them to fit in with the Earskinz on.

    Thanks guys. Since I’ll only use them when running, I don’t mind having to take them on and off. I also switch my Watch band before a run anyway, so I’ll just add this to the routine :)

    Might have to go with these earskinz

    What's the difference between ES2 and ES3?

    ES3 are for the AirPods. ES2 are for the EarPods/EarBuds.
