After years of using toothpicks, I didn't have one one day and found that the wire clip on the EarPods is the perfect size for removing earwax.

Am I the only one that cleans their ears daily?

I clean my ears daily and sometimes twice a day, but my earpods still get wax in them. I use the tip of my pocket knife to clean them out. The pods, not my ears! :D

What's equally annoying is how they hurt my ears after a little while, especially my right ear for some reason. Can't complain too much though. They are way better than any I've gotten with any other phone as far as sound quality.
