The majority of user reports suggest Apple's AirPods fare pretty well at sitting securely in the average lug hole, but at least one owner has had issues with them falling out of his ears. Fortunately he found an effective, albeit unusual, solution.

Figured out how I'm gonna keep these AirPods from falling out of my ears pic.twitter.com/5AKmzVIX5b - Andrew Cornett 🌚🏡? (@amotion) December 21, 2016

Andrew Cornett recruited a pair of stretched ear piercings to accommodate the stems, allowing his modified lobes to act as little holders that ensure his AirPods always stay in place.

As with individual pain thresholds, prices vary at piercing studios for opening holes in flesh, but all Apple Stores across the U.S. charge a consistent $69 to replace a lost AirPod, regardless of whether or not they're still under warranty.

Yeah, this is just a silly picture of a guy putting an AirPod through his flesh tunnel. Having worn these for a few days and having them be very secure without any help at all, this would probably make them a worse fit!
