Apple is going ahead with its plan to release wireless headphones – and people are already worrying about how they’ll stay in your ear. Called ‘AirPods’, Apple showcased the technology on Wednesday night as part of what the company envisages as a “wireless future”.
Apple wants to see a “wireless future” with its new AirPods . But fans are wondering how they’ll stay in your ear
Apple believes the headphones will “reinvent how we listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV and movies, play games, and interact with Siri”.
But Twitter users are scratching their heads about how the state-of-the-art tech, based on the classic earpiece design, will stay in, especially if you’re running for the bus or suchlike.
One Twitter user commented:
“My guess: the wireless AirPods won’t stay in some ears. Fortunately, 2 new Beats earbuds have ear hooks for people like me.”

.@AppleSupport these new airpods, are they the shape of the old earphones that always fall out my ears? What stops them falling out?
AirPods charge in a custom case and connect to the iPhone and Apple Watch. They can, Apple says, switch “seamlessly” between entertainment and calls.
Sensors know when you’re listening to music and play automatically, while a ‘double-tap’ lets you adjust volume and soundtracks.
AirPods come out in October and are priced at $159.
“AirPods are the first headphones to deliver a breakthrough wireless audio experience, and with the new Apple W1 chip they deliver innovative features including high quality sound, great battery life and automatic setup,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said following the launch.
“AirPods are simple and magical to use, with no switches or buttons, automatically connecting to all your Apple devices simply and seamlessly.
The technology is great…but what if the headphones fall out on your evening run? But not every one is convinced. While Schiller described the technology, the jokes just kept on coming.
