Earwings for Fairbuds

Hello,
i’ve got the Fairbuds, but i’ve the problem that the buds are not holding good enough to do some running with it.
Is there a possibility that there will be a earplug with earwings or is there a company selling it?

Best regards

I think these earwings are very specific, I haven’t heard about universal earwings or earwings that by chance also fit these. It’s also unlikely that there will be earwings manufactured by a non-fairphone company since fairphone earbuds aren’t that popular (yet). Hopefully fairphone themselves will make earwings, or someone finds earwings that are by chance compatible.

I’ve seen it sometimes by sport in ear headphones, but yeah i see the problem of missing popularity

This is the only thing keeping me from buying the new Fairbuds! Every pair of in-ear headphones I’ve tried without earwings have always been too loose for my ears. Really hoping this gets added, at least as an option.

Other possible design idea:

'+ 1 for this idea / “request”. :wink:

All the buds I used in the near past had that, what really improved the fit for my ears. (Mentioned that also in my German post about the sound quality 🇩🇪 Wie ist die Klangqualität der Fairbuds? - #7 by Smojo )

I bought memory foam tips (from Bose I think) for both my old and new Fairbuds. They don’t fall from my ears anymore and I run with it without any issue :slightly_smiling_face:

Do they fit well in the charging case with the foam tips?

If yes, can you share a link?
These maybe? Comply™ Foam Ear Tips For Bose QuietComfort Ultra & QuietComfort II – Comply Foam

I tried some older foam tips I still had, but as it was a bit too big so the charging contact was not optimal anymore.

I see the problem, that they are not round like most of the Headphones

Azla SednaEarfit Xelastecs maybe? They’re not earwings but they have a lot of grip.

Here’s a link for what I bought on Amazon FR: Amazon.fr
As you can see, they are made for the Bose QuietConfort II but they fit perfectly on both Fairbuds (contrary to my last memory foam tips from my previous earbuds).

I suspect they prevent the first gen of Fairbuds from making a good contact in the box, as I have issue with the buds regularly connecting and staying on while in the box, but I’m not 100% sure it is related.

However, I have no issue so far with the gen 2, and I’ve been using them for weeks now.

Regarding wings/fins/hooks I remember, that I had some buds, quite a long time ago, where the wings were separate (not connected to the tip).

Eventually some of them would fit for the fairbuds as well. :thinking: (around the silicone gasket which has to be removed to replace the battery)
