    Having trouble using my stock Apple EarPods while working out. They slip out frequently.

    I remember seeing some yurbuds enhancers for the new EarPods, but I can't seem to find them anywhere online. Any idea where I can find these? I'd rather not have to purchase new headphones.

    Thanks.

    Never heard of those, but I have a set of Earskinz for my EarPods. They stay in and sound great.

    I saw some on Amazon for $10 plus shipping. It said for EarPods. Size 6. I can't wear the EarPods that came with my phone. They fall out if I'm sitting still. I need to try the enhancers. I'm using some cheap earbuds. Works good for most stuff. Not great for music.

    I'm gonna order those. Dang EarPods just won't stay in. Even when they're in, they're not snug enough for good sound. Odd the Earskinz don't come in white to match the EarPods. But I like black and smoke. Thanks for posting about them.

    I had heard of these some months ago but never ordered a pair. I think @Europa mentioned them IIRC. Just ordered a pair of the black ones for my EarPods, thanks for the reminder. :)

    I was thinking about trying them out on a whim, but $11 is a little much for two little pieces of plastic. I'll stick to my etymotics.

    The Etymotics are great quality. They've done much research in the hearing aid field. They know their stuff. But, not having those or anything else but cheap earbuds with no mic, $11 is not that much for me to be able to use the EarPods that not only have a mic and volume controls, but also the photo snap feature. That's really come in handy for scenery and pano shots. It also helps me keep the phone steady while snapping a pic. Thanks for bringing up Etymotics. Maybe one of these days....

    yeah, if I didn't already have quality third party earphones, I'd check these out.
