- Apple’s AirPods 2 are the most popular true wireless earbuds on the market right now, and they’re also discounted on Amazon.
- People love them, but there’s also a feature of the design that not everyone is a fan of: They don’t have silicone tips, so they don’t isolate sound.
- That means sound quality suffers because certain frequencies, mostly bass, “leak” out of your ear. EarBuddyz Ultra AirPods Covers on Amazon fix the issue, and they only cost $14.

All of Apple’s different AirPods models are discounted right now, from the entry-level AirPods 2 and AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case to the top-of-the-line AirPods Pro noise cancelling earphones that everyone goes crazy over right now. In fact, AirPods Pro are on sale at the same all-time low price that Amazon was charging on Black Friday. Even at a discount though, you’ll still have to pay almost double for the Pro model.
The added cost is fine if you can afford it and if you need active noise cancelling in your earbuds. If you don’t you’ll probably want to go for the regular AirPods instead, but there’s something you may need to address. AirPods are made out of smooth white plastic that looks cool, but they don’t have silicone tips. That means they don’t lock sound into your ear, so a lot of it leaks out — especially bass. If you want to fix the problem though, you don’t need the silicone tips on AirPods Pro earphones. Just pick up a pair of EarBuddyz Ultra Silicone AirPods Covers on Amazon for $14. Pop them on your AirPods anytime you want to lock in the sound and bump up the bass, and you’re good to go!
Here’s a review from Amazon to give you an idea of how well they work:
These came yesterday and I had to immediately try them out.
They are a silicone sleeve that fits over each AirPod with a “tail-like protrusion” that helps secure them to the ear. Very easy to slip on, as they do stretch a bit. I now feel so much less anxious and concerned about losing an AirPod, which would be expensive. This is their intent. Additionally, the sound quality is so much better with the EarBuddyz. The bass is more enhanced and the outside ambient noise is reduced. You get two pair along with a little mesh bag with a hook which can be attached to your belt, pocketbook, etc. The only con that I have about them is that they must be removed when charging the AirPods, as they will not fit in the charging case. This only takes five minutes to remove them, so it’s really not an issue. I strongly recommend these.
