    Apple airpods

    Anyone have them? I have never been able to keep earbuds in, but I?ve heard from many that the airpods stay in well. As a quad I?d be nervous about them falling out somewhere.

    I don't have any, but maybe it would be better to look for some earbuds that are connected together (the kind tethered with a wire that runs behind your neck), that way if one does fall out, hopefully it will just hang around your neck and not go bouncing places.

      I like the old style headphones with a cable and a plug. They keep your ears warm, keep the dust out and the wax warm; and if you drop them they're easy to find AND pick up.
      They are not fashionable but that's because they are out of fashion. I could give a rats bum about fashion, if you know what I mean
      And then there is all that discussion about radio waves....

        I actually have resorted to over-ear headphones for music, as other earbud options all have failed me. I was looking for something less obtrusive for work calls.

          I’ve had a pair since Christmas, and so has my son. I use mine regularly, and they are yet to fall out, whereas I’ve tried other “unique” earbuds, designed for runners, that wouldn’t even stay in my ears when I was standing still! However my son doesn’t like them at all...he says they are uncomfortable so he doesn’t use them. Different ears, different shapes, one size doesn’t fit all....

            I did see you could buy a strap for the airpods.

              I use them everyday. No problems of falling out. I'm a C4 and have my girl friend put them in and take out. Love them.

                Shame to spend all that money only to have them fall out while rolling and then to roll over them and crush them!!

                Powerbeats 3 work better for me and they sound better too.

                More easy to color match to your chair too!

                But if you are Apple lover then its a tough sell.

                    It's for work phone calls, not to blast music.

                      Just wondering, don't you end up sharing your music with everyone around you with this type of speaker vs some type of in ear device?

                        Landrover it works for calls too

                        I have 2 pair of airpods that fell out while rolling and both broke once they hit the ground.

                        Testing this now works great on calls and option for TV viewing too!

                        glnl: No when you use a quality speaker you dont need to be loud as the 4 speakers are very close to your ear area!

                        Not everyone can wear ear buds to to small ears.

                          But the idea is privacy, not to have those around me hear too. Otherwise I'd just use the speakerphone.

                            Many dont know that the speaker phone in a smart phone may be good for the listener but terrible for the person calling.

                            It causes major ear pain and discomfort because it plays back and amplified all the sounds in your background!

                            Having had a job on the phone dealing with the public cant tell you how many times we asked callers to take the call of speaker phone!

                            Just go to a Apple store or order on line try the Airpods you have 2 weeks to try them and you return them and get 100% refund!

                              Amazon sells a "leash" for the airpods. You're right, won't know unless you try.
