About

Bite Installation
Bite Installation

How many times have you had to replace your Apple EarPods? Lost or broken? Definitely more than the number of Apple devices you have had so far.

Just another funeral of EarPods
Just another funeral of EarPods

After conducting an extensive, multidisciplinary behavioral research, we found out that users tend to remove their earphone by pulling on the cord rather than grasping the plug, which eventually results in a broken earphone. And the main driver for such behavior is the unergonomic design of the earpod plug, making it extremely hard to grasp.

Once we realized a lot of our friends (nearly 87% according to our survey) were having the same issue, we decided to solve this problem by creating the Bite.

Product Details

Bite is engineered to enhance the user experience of Apple EarPods by adding an extra grip to the plug so that users can safely plug-in and remove their earphones. It is made out of 100 percent silicone material, which is allergy-proof, and provides a nice friction fit grip based on the human finger profile.

In addition to its functional design, Bite also helps to identify your earphone from the others, while adding a touch of color for personality. It comes in 9 different colors options and will match your outfit perfectly.
