Stop Your Earbuds From Falling Out

Sick of your in-ear headphones always falling out when you're out jogging, but don't really want to spend the extra cash on a specialised set of headphones? Redditor wtp points out the easiest method to keep earbuds in is to simply wrap them over your ear.

This is one of those dead simple ideas that might make you feel a little silly if you haven't thought of it yourself, but it works great and costs zero dollars. If you'd prefer a more hacked together approach you can always make your own hooks from twist ties. Have some tips of your own for keeping headphones from falling out?

    Is this a common problem? I've never had any fall out myself.

    I've tried this in the past. The bud still falls out of my ear.

    Sure they wont fall out, but at what cost?

    You will look like a douchebag.

      Actually i tried this method and it works. Now if you think about other's opinions, I feel more like a douchebag if my earphones fell off when I am having a brisk run.

    Those look like the kind of headphones that are suppose to go in sideways (so the flappy bit on your ear holds them in and so they point directly down your ear canal, like the Sennheiser CX300s), a lot of people however try and push them straight in (like normal bud ones) and they fall out and sound terrible. I think if you're having problems with headphones like that staying in, you're putting them in wrong.

      This. +1.
