Your AirPods Pro will stop playing music when at least one of the earbuds leaves your ear — a great feature that makes them one of the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. If you're using your AirPods Pro, you'd likely notice right away if one of the buds fell out. Of course, if you get the best ear hooks for AirPods Pro, you won't ever have to worry about that.

If I wanted a set of these for myself, I'd grab the AhaStyle AirPods Pro Ear Hooks. Soft and flexible, these hooks fit securely in your ear and come with a silicone pouch — but similar to most of these hooks — they won't fit in the AirPods Pro case.

If you do want something that'll fit in your AirPods Pro case, check out the DamonLight AirPods Pro cover. Unlike the others on this list, you won't need to take them off and put them on every time you put your AirPods in and take them out of the charging case. They come in two colors; choose black for contrast or white if you want them to blend in with your AirPods Pro.

Of course, if you're looking for something more secure yet don't like the in-ear hook design, give the Elago AirPods Pro Ear Hooks a chance. They hook around your ear, making your AirPods more like the Powerbeats Pro. For many, including myself, this is often more comfortable than in-ear hooks and proves to be more secure.
