Wear Ear Buds the RIGHT Way!!!





Introduction: Wear Ear Buds the RIGHT Way!!!

Tired of ear buds that keep falling? Have to adjust them every 10 seconds? Then this instructable is just for you!

Ear phones don't fit everyone. Especially the ones without Silicone tips. Some people have ears that just don't let them go in properly. I just bought a new pair for running, but they just won't stay in my ears! The only solution online was to buy another pair, which was simply not acceptable.

This awesome way of wearing ear buds keeps them from falling easily, even while running. Never feel bad for buying the wrong ear phones again!

Step 1: Get a Pair of Ear Buds

Any type of ear buds will do.

Step 2: Take 'em Back

Hold the ear buds and take them BEHIND your ears.

Step 3: Loop the Loop

Bring them up and around your ears like in the photo.

Step 4: Voilà!

Once you have taken a considerable length of the wires around your ears, just wear them normally. Sometimes you don't even need to push them in much!

Please feel free to comment and tell me if this works, or suggest any changes.

    Many, many, many thanks for this easy solution to a long-lived and enormously irritating problem!!!!!!!

    Thanks. It has helped.

    Seriously, I've watched a ridiculous amount of videos and none of them worked - none of them had loop the loop!!!! GENIUS!!! THANK YOU!!!

    Dude , you are awesome. It works perfect.

    Yeah, well here's the thing.... I'm an old guy by most standards and I've come to rely on my I'm-the-only-one-in-the-universe 400.00 OTE noise-cancelling monster cups. A friend gave me a set of ear buds and after 30 minutes of frustration, I tossed them in my top drawer with old watches and concert ticket stubs and made it a point to give them back to him. How could these things work, always falling out like this?

    Thanks for this instructable. You saved me from looking like an idiot to an old buddy, although he's probably suspected it for a long time, Great bit of insight.

    Hi KenS164!

    I'm glad that this trick worked for you. Making people look less like idiots- isn't that the dream? :)

    I find that if you wear the headphones with the wires facing up, it feels almost natural. Might just be me but i'm not sure.

    Me also, no tugging which would normally make them fall out. Great tip but I rarely see people wearing them that way!

    Sofar sogood, alot more stable.
