......so far in the last year or so, I've found.......2 left, 3 right [ that makes 2 pairs ] of the original AirPods on the floor/left on train seats......


.....I just found a left AirPods Pro on the street........Apple must be making a lot of money from people who loose one and have to replace it.....

I kind of like the strap idea. I only wear mine working in the yard. Maybe if I ever flew somewhere again...

Hmm, I'll have to check the infamous Unclaimed Baggage Store in Alabama on my way to visit the relatives this year. Wouldn't shock me if they have a huge bin of the things...

If you assemble a mismatched pair from found items, can you do anything with them, or are they locked?

I am on record here as reporting that within a week I dropped one in the toilet. Medium-size tips. Going down to the Small size usually keeps them in but they are less comfortable now.

I went to Comply's site --- because I am a premium guy --- they say go UP a size if they won't stay in. I have no idea what to buy. I could buy Comply's assorted set, which would mean two are then wasted.

Is there a secondary market for slightly used AirPod Pro tips? Don't answer that.

We find them in the school halls all the time.

Those straps sound like the perfect stocking stuffer for Christmas

Had mine for over a year and they get used every day and somehow I've managed not to lose one.

I don't see any logic in denying myself a beneficial item just because the general public is too incompetent to manage its use.

Acckkk!

it would be bad enough to lose one a regular AirPod, but an AirPod Pro?!

The pain, the pain!

I couldn't wear them because they hurt my ears and wouldn't stay in, so they were returned.

I got some Comply Memory Foam tips for some headphones I had, and I wasn't crazy about them, don't remember why.

But with memory foam, I'd be tempted to go a size larger than whatever Apple recommends for the Pro tips. (lol).

I really, really like the standard AirPods as they fit well.

Even if I lost one, I'd be happy for the enjoyment they've given me, and buying a replacement wouldn't bother me.

I have one that's dying, now.

2yrs, and apparently the battery is about done.

Charged to 100%, it stops reproducing audio, but the battery shows >90% when it stops.

One day I might try the Pro again, but with Comply memory foam tips.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

This and I agree. I've had them for some time (bought them when the headphone jack on my last iPhone went out) and they're great. Love them; great sound, great battery life; all that.

This is a legit problem unfortunately. They happen to fit my ears pretty well and the only time one popped out was passing under an overpass in a very windy rain with a lot of wind shear. At least 35MPH winds and I felt one start to slip out and grabbed the pair (you know which pair, Newt) and decided to finish my walk in relative windy quiet.

They're pretty useless unless they fit at least decently.
