With all the millions of Earpods that Apple gives away with their products, it would be a shame if people left them neatly stored in their package because of poor fit. So, at OHM industrial designers, we decided to make this small annoyance a Kickstarter project to help our fellow Earpod users. We designed and manufactured an inexpensive accessory that wouldn't distract from the clean look of the Earpods and would create a custom fit that would help keep them in your ears.

The Sprng clip snaps on to the Earpod stem and allows the user to adjust the fit by sliding it up and down. The elastomer tipped clip fits into the concha under the antihelix of the ear and holds the Earpod comfortably in place with very little pressure.
There are other Earpod attachments on the market but the Sprng clip design is unique in the following ways:
- It does not increase the head size of the Earpod—this is especially important for users with small ear canals
- The sliding adjustment allows for custom fitting for different sized ears
