I may have mentioned this before, but in case you forgot, I have very active sweat glands. More precisely, I am the Old Faithful of sweating. One time at the gym I had a concerned elderly woman run up to warn me that I should be careful because it looked like I was standing underneath a leak in the ceiling. Anyway, I hate--hate--when I am busting ass working out, and the sweat is pouring down my face and into my ears, and it's making my headphones all sweaty, and then I'm spending half my time trying to shove back in the earbuds that keep falling out. I hate suffering just because my body is inordinately efficient at expelling heat and toxins!

EarSkinz, thin plastic covers for Apple earbuds and EarPods, aim to prevent my electrical listening-device related meltdowns. They also add comfort, enhance sound, and look pretty sweet fitted over the otherwise boring white nubs of iDevice earphones.

EarSkinz are made of an almost shaved layer of soft plastic to help give earbuds a more malleable shape that fits more ergonomically to individuals' inner ears. The Skinz's design also stabilizes them against the skin so they don't shift around or fall out while you're walking, working out, or rocking out. In addition, EarSkinz serve as a sort of sound funnel for the earbuds or EarPods they cover. They direct the listener's music or daily affirmation stream directly down the ear canal for improved acoustic clarity and bass. This allows for listening to audio at lower volumes without compromising quality.

Finally, EarSkinz have a fourth highly desirable benefit that their creators seem to be too civil to point out. Good thing I'm not. The bud covers stop grody ear wax from accumulating on your earphones. Ear wax that cannot be washed off properly due to the phones' not being approved for submersion in water or Windex. But EarSkinz are. Feel free to slather your pair of colorful covers with the excrement of your inner ears, and then when someone points out how disgusting that is, just pop them off for a rinse. Good as new. You're welcome.
