If you have ever listened to music wearing earphones, whether it be on a casual walk or during an intense workout, more than likely you have had the frustrating experience of your headphones falling out of your ears when they weren’t supposed to. Ranging from a minor annoyance when your music session is cut short to a serious hazard with the cords tangling into your legs during a run, having your headphones slip out is completely avoidable with our 3 tips on how to keep your headphones intact, so read on!

1. Earphones that wrap around your ear

An easy and highly successful way to prevent your headphones from falling out, especially during a strenuous workout, is to buy earphones that are specially structured to wrap around your ear for a secure and snug fit. What’s great about these specialized headphones is that they can adjust to any ear size and shape with inner core of the plastic cord being a flexible wire which can contort into any shape you desire. With the bendable cords hugging your ear tightly, rest assured that your headphones won’t be going anywhere whether you are doing your morning run or simply jamming out.

2. A snug hat or hairband

A tightly fitted hat is a great trick to keep your headphones in place and prevent slippage. We suggest opting for a beanie or a  hat made with a more breathable fabric so you will not want to remove it after a long period of time if it gets too hot, on top of the fact with a hat like a beanie, it will be easy to adjust the headphones through the material without having to completely remove it in order to adjust.

If you want to avoid a hat that may ruin your entire look, or the unnecessary heat brought on by a hat,  you have the option of wearing a snug thick hairband. Found at almost any local drug store and coming in a variety of colors, you can just slip one on and slide it down so that it is covering your eardrum keeping your earphones in place – this is a great option for exercising or other strenuous activity.


3. Medical Tape

It may sound a bit odd, but a small strip of medical tape could do just the trick for keeping your earphones in place. Coming in beige-y colors , they manage to blend a lot easier with your skin compared to other methods and it is significantly more inconspicuous, especially if you have hair long enough to cover your ears. Although the tape is constructed with a built-in adhesive side, we suggest against using this method if you will be doing exercise or moving around for a long period of time – it’s more likely that the adhesive will wear out from perspiration resulting in the earphone falling out of your ear.
