Wonder if anyone else has this problem. When I'm walking my earrings are always hitting the mic part of the AirPod (or the little metal ring on the bottom). It's kind of annoying. Is there any solution to make them stop?

Sorry. Someone has to say it. Take out your earrings. I usually pick one or the other.

Will be interesting to see if any creative solutions are posted here

Well, that’s disappointing. ☹️ I’m unwilling to make another accommodation for an Apple product so I will be returning them. I’ll give the new powbeats pro a try when they come out.

While I was laughing, because it’s not the first time I’ve heard this, it brought back a memory of helping a customer one day.
A customer came in and bought the AirPods because her company was buying them for her in a beta test for teleconferencing. She was excited she didn’t have to pay for them.

A couple days later she came back in and returned them for the same reason, earring were interfering with the AirPods.she loved the ease of use, the quality of sound and clarity.

She returned them for the Powerbeats.
A couple days later she came back in and wanted to return them as well. The PB were awful when she opted to wear glasses.

We talked and I mentioned that the one reason why there are so many options to earphones is because not one is perfect in every situation, like shoes.

You may find Powerbeats annoying if you wear glasses or sunglasses.

For me, I use power beats, AirPods and Bose qc35s.
$700+to listen to music. It’s crazy

Thanks for the feedback. I hate returning them but it is annoying when the earrings hit. I,do wear sunglasses so that is good to know. Maybe I can wake up my fairy godmother to have a different pair for every occasion. I do have Beats Solo 3 which I love but not in the summer.

I have Ganges and had this problem mostly when wearing a face mask so I tired putting them in opposite ears with the stem facing up and now they work just fine. I'm sure this effects the sound quality and might look kind of silly but not enough to make me return them. Hope this helps!

I have changed to low profile earrings, to keep them from hitting the stems of my AirPods and if I have dangling earrings I either tuck them under the Bose earcup (waiting for my APM) or remove.

I'm relieved. Was really worried for a while back there. But your earrings pulled through. Congrats.

AND I managed to solve the issue all by my own self.... on the other hand I’m old enough to remember taking off the earring to talk on the phone that was attached to a wall (gasp!)
