I don’t know about you, but Apple’s new wireless Airpods don’t seem all that secure to me. Apple didn’t seem to bother trying to making them ergonomic, or adding any form of support to keep them in place like most wireless earbuds. Of course, they’ve already started falling out.

The solution? Why, earring baskets, of course.

That’s what the inventive folks over at M3D (a 3D printer company) have come up with, at least. The fancifully named M3D Twisty Earbud Catchers are like little trash cans for your $160 purchase – that you can wear!

Unfortunately, you can’t buy them, but if you have a 3D printer lying around, you can make a pair yourself. Though If you don’t already have your ears pierced, I wouldn’t recommend you get them poked just for this.

But hey, it’s your choice.
