Is it just me or can anyone else not get on with earbuds.

I think the sound quality of Apple's is excellent, but the slightest head movement and they come loose/fall out. The normal type aren't any better either.

I usually have problems with any in-ear buds, Apple, Creative, etc. They easily slip out, even if they have foam or rubber outers. I assume it is my lug'ole shape. I was therefore suspicious of Airpods, but they do stay in well - as long as I'm not overly active with my head.

Me too. I just can't get them to stay in (any make).

AirPods will cure that problem. The weight of the cord is what causes the problem on the wired earbuds and makes them drop out.

I have not had an AirPod drop out in nearly a year of use.

Can't imagine how people run with them. Superglue, perhaps.

There is only one way to find out. Except the running part.

Earwax works too (ew... I made that up).

Never had an AirPod drop out here either... I tell a lie! Happened once when I was pulling my hood up in rain and the music stopped in the remaining pod instantly to warn me... I think they're great!
