What to do if one of your AirPods breaks or is lost?

When buying a gadget, many people think of its future first. That is, if you paid 100,000 rubles for an iPhone, you will think about how it will work there in a year, what will happen if you drop it and whether you need to worry that it will not come through a case is protected. I’m sure there are more such thoughts about headphones that are easier to lose or break. I wasn’t worried about my AirPods Pro before, until I ran into an issue that wasn’t easily predictable. I’m sure many of you have experienced something similar, but just one detail changed everything and now I’m thinking about a safety net. Turns out she is.

Advantages of TWS headphones

The main advantage of AirPods and other TWS headphones is that they are small. They do not take up space in your pocket or ears and are therefore easy to use. But this is their main disadvantage. If you drop them, the headphones are easy to lose. And if it comes at that moment (sometimes it does) then they immediately become something that can be thrown away or handed over to processing like a conscious human.

What happens if the headphones fall out of your ears?

But if you can still find a gleaming white handset on the sidewalk or even in the grass, that becomes even more of a problem at times like these. Not long ago I dropped the phone into a small but snowdrift for the first time. It was a pile of snow, still white, piling up near the footpath. It’s good that I had a video of the flight path the headphones flew on and I was able to find it relatively quickly.

Usually AirPods (especially the Pro version) bounce off the ground very well and very unpredictably and fly away who knows where. This is due to the extended leg, rubberized ear pads and the low weight of the earpiece. Therefore, you do not have to look for it at the point of contact with the ground, but in a radius of one meter around it.

These headphones are too small and easily lost.

At the same time, losing an earbud renders all the headphones and a headset you can only use for phone calls useless, and buying a new pair proves expensive and undesirable. So, for example, in chain stores such as M.Video, a pair of AirPods Pro of the first generation cost about 17,500 rubles. It’s cheaper than it was a few months ago, but still expensive to pay that much for losing an earbud.

The problem with AirPods isn’t just that they’re easy to lose, but when they break, it’s problematic to fix. In fact, headphones are beyond repair at all, and the disassembly and assembly procedures found on the internet are very complicated, expensive, and risky. Therefore, when the headphones are broken, it is easier to replace them with new ones than to do anything with them. The same applies to the charging case.
