Get a new iPhone or iPod for Christmas and don’t like the EarPods?
Ahhhh yes. This can be frustrating. But make no mistake: EarPods are a great set of buds, but they don’t fit everyone perfectly. You can get a set custom gels, but that might really not be required to get a good fit.
Follow these instructions, and don’t scoff until you have actually completed the task, which is listening to something while running or walking.
Rock these instructions:
First, place them in your ears correctly.
Now: Remove them and hold them in front of you, one in each hand.
Next: Switch them so the left earpod is in your right hand and the right earpod is in your left hand.
Then turn both EarPods upside-down.
Place the upside-down EarPods in your ear hole and run the cable from the front, up and over your ear, toward the back of your head, aligning each cable in the crease where your ear cartilage meets your skull, continuing down to just under your chin. Bring both cables together and then pinch and hold both wires with one hand.
With the other hand, slide the cable cincher (the movable square piece above the splitter where one wire splits into 2 wires) upwards until it’s snug under your chin.
Important: DO NOT SKIP
Smile and say, “Right on dude!” out loud, in an over-modulated voice because the upside down music sounds great using EarPods that stay put.
