Not a piece of string? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


More privacy invading bullshit. And don’t forget, this company will eventually go out of business, at which point what you paid for becomes useless.

Been using AirPods since the first gen. Never lost one. And I lose things all the time.

I found an ear bud (not Apple, but just as expensive) on the road, likely lost by a cyclist. So I pulled it apart, as it was now useless. The amount of tech in there is amazing; five PCBs, two microphones… https://photos.app.goo.gl/HYpRsqXsvkguWXULA The speaker is miniscule.

Maybe, and I’m just spitballing here, some kind of conductive string to hold them in place? Then you could transmit the signal and power to the headphones? I think we could be onto something here you know…
