    Is it just me? I have tried wireless bluetooth - decent make and on a 4 mile walk linked to apple watch they kept on falling out my ear!.

    I remember a few years ago there was a highly regarded company that made not only tailor made ear phones but also ear protection for musicians.

    This required a simple mould of your ear drum from memory - but dont quote me on that as its 10 years ago.

    Anyhow am I the only one that WONT be spending £150+ due to the major possibility of EarBuds just dropping out of my ear(s)!while listening.

    well I guess you havethe 'No Quibble' apple 14 returns so you cant fo wrong hope they fit your ear.
    I think these manufacturers think we all have the same size ear drum.
    The company I couldn't remember in OP is https://www.etymotic.com

    Has anyone on here actually tried the Air Pods and verified that they will fall out with use? It's going to have to be a risk you take if you dedcide to buy them. Decide if the risk is worth the reward. There are lots of other choices out there.

    They haven't been released yet.

    But I do think it's going to be an issue for active people. They're pretty ugly looking too. Only Apple could sell something this stupid.

    Looks like the wired ones are the same so if they fall out then the wireless ones will.

    Absent those rubber "wings" you see on Bose earphones, these will no doubt fall out of my ears.

    This is a great idea. I currently wear a pair of bluetooth buds all day around my neck. They magnetically stick to each other and I wear them like a necklace. Two things about the eyeglass holder though - 1) they might not hold on to the Airpods well and 2) they might interfere with the fit of the Airpods
