Any plans to make half-in-ear fairbuds?

As anything in your ear can create an earwax blockage, which you have to go to a doctor to clear out, are there any plans to make fairbuds without any part in your ear canal?

Welcome to the Community Forum. :+1:

I’ve experienced the ear issue you are describing (and have seen the doctor) several times over the last couple of years. For my part, I opted to use a full-sized headphone for a part of my listening – mostly the part at home, as I still use my Fairphone TWS earphones on the road (walking or on the bus) and I find in-ears still give a more immersive listening experience. I just don’t use the TWS 100 % of the time anymore and try to go for the on-ear option more often.

I doubt that Fairphone would present a third option in between the Fairbuds and the full-size Fairbuds XL. By the way, if you want the company (Fairphone) to know, you’d need to write to them directly, as this is a forum mostly run by users for users.

Would be awesome if the front most cap was replaceable to remove the protruding part entirely…

But perhaps if it is not designed for that (including that it seems currently a part that is glued, not intended to be replaceable like other replaceable parts are), it might fall out if it relies on that for grip.

I’d love some airpods-like fairbuds. I don’t like in ears, if it’s noisy outside I grab my over ears.
