Don't lose your AirPods 2

You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.

Note that all of these options will still fit if you do have the original AirPods because the AirPods 1 and AirPods 2 are the same size and shape. However, the AirPods 3 are a different size and shape, so ear hooks won't be interchangeable between AirPods 2 and AirPods 3.

So which are the best AirPods 2 ear hooks for you? If you find your AirPods 2 have trouble staying in your ears, any of the options listed above will undoubtedly help you out, but we love the EarBuddyz 2.0. They will make sure your AirPods stay in your ears, and they're super budget-friendly. The silicone will provide some ambient noise isolation, and the hooks fit into your ear comfortably. Choose from four different colors: clear, black, pink, and sky blue.

If you're not sure which ear hook style you'll find most comfortable, we recommend the WQNIDE AirPods accessories set. This kit includes every type of ear hook and tip you can think of, so you can rock the ones that suit your ears best. You can keep the whole set and use different hooks for different occasions, or split up the set to share with friends and family.

Note that the AirPods case is designed to fit the AirPods perfectly, so any of these skins will make the AirPods too bulky to place into the charging case. You'll need to remove the skins from your AirPods each time before charging. Looking for the best AirPods and AirPods 2 cases as well? We've got you covered (pun intended) there too!
