Anyone else notice how tight the earpods are in the headphone jack?

    You have to be really careful putting them in or out. I feel like they are going to break every time I do.

    Other than that, the sound in them is amazing and they are so comfortable in the ear.

    Nowhere near as sticky as the USB end on that lighting cable!

    It's because they are new. Give it time it will loosen up.

    Yeah, lightning cable is fine, but earpods are REALLY tight. Very hard to pull out.

    Yeah. I've had numerous iPods & iPads over the years, but I've never recalled them being so tight and difficult to get out before.

    Not really a complaint; more of an observation.

    Mine stuck in a PC. Apple told me known issue and sent me a new cable. Google it, it is a known issue. There are quite a few threads on lightening cables with poorly made USB ends permanently sticking in UPB ports. something in the USB end isn't quite up to USB standards
