Best ear hooks for your AirPods 2 in 2023

Why do you need the best ear hooks for your AirPods 2? While AirPods 2 are fantastic accessories for your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you may find them slipping out of your ears. The last thing you want is to lose one of your AirPods — it's the worst! These are the best ear hooks and covers for AirPods 2, so you can rest assured they'll stay firmly in place. 

Don't lose your AirPods 2

Why you can trust iMore Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. 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're a super simple way to 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, Pretty in 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!
