I made this product for airport users, (like my mom) because one of the biggest problems she had was that the AirPods always fell out when she was in her dance class. but were not comfortable enough that is why I developed this product with all of these characteristics. first, they had to be comfortable, second, they had to not fall out and be used for different purposes. and third, they had to look nice and discreet.
