Apple wasn't the first consumer electronics company to release cord-free Bluetooth earbuds. In fact, rivals had similar offerings years before Apple joined the party. Apple might not have been first but the company certainly did it best, as is often the case when Apple enters a new market — just look at the iPad and iPhone for perfect examples. They have a better design, a smarter case, and more advanced wireless technology than anything else on the market. They even have better sound quality than most cord-free earbuds, but they're not perfect.
While Apple's AirPods do deliver surprisingly good sound quality, users don't always get to hear it. Because the earbud tips are made out of smooth plastic instead of silicone, they never stay in one's ears securely. A loose fit means there's no noise isolation, so sound leaks and audio quality suffers. There are a few ways to address the issue, but a new "hack" offers the best solution we've seen so far.
