Easy Earphone Hack!- Wear 'em the Right Way!




Are you the kind of person who cant keep earbuds in your ears? Do you have to adjust them every 10 seconds? Or maybe you want to go for a run but they keep falling out. 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. Now you can finally achieve world domination while listening to some sweet music!

Step 1: Take It Back

Bring the ear bud behind your ears as shown in the photo.

Step 2: Loop It Around

Step 3: Wear It As Usual

Once you have taken a considerable length of the wire around your ear, just wear it normally. The loop should prevent it from moving or tugging out.

    I use them this way. I move my head alot and further more I hate having wires hanging IN FRONT of me! This way I can have the wires out of my way and phone protected in the back pocket.

    I think that you dance after wearing earphones...That's why you are saying about to loop it around ear....Bro!this is useful only for you because others don't dance like you after wearing ear phones.
    That's why their ear phones remain in ear.
    But this phenomenon is useful for you...So enjoy it yourself!
