What is it?
We love the unorthodox gadget, and we love a simple one. SprngClip, with the i missing, is one of such products. It solves the problem of your Apple EarPods falling out of your ears in times of movement (walking, running, etc.) by giving them extra grip in your ear. They do so in the gentlest and cleanest way possible, making them quite a cool device.
Look and Feel
It is hard to describe what they look like, apart from showing you the picture.
A couple of gentle rubbery bits of plastic that wrap around the wire of your earpod, with a curvy bit on the top that fits in your ear. Make any sense? Well I hope it did, and I hope the picture spoke the thousand words it needed to.
As far as feel goes, these are almost non-existent as far as weight goes, and the material itself is very flexible and soft. This is good because you obviously don’t want something hard and rigid going into your ear.
How to use them
While there is a video available on the website (link below), it is quite simple. You clip your EarPod wire in them, and adjust the height if required. Insert the EarPod in your ear as if you are inserting any inner ear headphones, and the soft curled bit should make itself at home in your ear. Once in, it should be fairly stable.
From there on, there is not much to worry about.
So, are they really that stable?
Yes. They are. We gave it a good head rocking test, and a bit of stair climbing while jogging test too. They passed both, and we were pleased with the results.
But are they comfortable?
As I said before, they are extremely soft, which makes them very adaptable. This means that ears of most shapes and sizes should find them comfortable and adaptable. I found my ear got tired more from the EarPod than from this, as is normally the case.
The SprngClip set can be bought in the UK from iLoveApple.com at the following link:
It retails at £8.99, and is available in blue, green, white and red.
If you have EarPods, you probably are aware of the problem that they fall out. And if you use them, then you probably want to get rid of the problem. The SprngClip gives you a simple, cheap and good looking solution. No brainer really!
