If you’ve picked up a pair of Apple’s new EarPods, you’ve probably read that Apple designed them to fit all types of ears. That hasn’t stopped many reviewers from pointing out they’re a little loose and prone to falling out. The fix? A little sugru, that moldable silicone we love so much.
Instructables user juniortan picked up a pair and says they’re a little loose in his ears, but all it took was a touch of sugru around the outside of the EarPods to fix the problem. He explained you only need a little bit — maybe 1/5 of the pack — to customise both earpieces, and once the sugru has dried nicely, they’ll fit like a glove. Plus, you can always press down the sugru or add more to get a perfect fit. We’ve shown you how to repair damaged earbuds before with Sugru — it makes sense that it can also be used to improve the fit of the ones you have. Check out the link below for a full step-by-step, complete with photos of the finished product.
