If people still tend to lose wired earphones, imagine how the wireless Apple AirPods fare. But one Twitter user found a rather imaginative way of keeping them in place without using cables.

Andrew Cornett demonstrated on a tweet as to how stretched ear piercings can be used to effectively secure the wireless AirPods to his ears, without the use of extra peripherals, reports The Verge.


The mic end of the AirPods simply slots into a hole made on the earlobe to give it instant security. For those who are curious, it takes around two to three weeks to have a hole on the earlobe be enlarged enough to fit something in, like a pencil. Alfred Bayle
