I just cut the cord from the top, making a near identical of the look and feel of the AirPods being in my ear. First off, before cutting, these same EarPods always fell out of my ear. They are unstable as hell. After cutting they stick in my ear like glue, I even forgot I had them in my ear. Can't wait for mine to come even more now. I HATED the way my EarPods felt and now I LOVE the way these feel in my ear. Such night and day.
