Can you wear earbuds with piercings?


Yes! There are a few ways to wear earbuds with piercings.

  • Place the earbud in your right ear before inserting the piercing into your left ear.
  • Place the earbud in your left (non-pierced) ear before inserting the piercing into your right (pierced) ear.
  • Insert both piercings and then insert both gauges of a single pair of standard sized gauges into each hole, one at a time.


You need to be aware that longer earphones such as the Jaybird Freedom may not fit with the daith piercing. If you have a short earphone, or have an extra long daith piercing, you should be able to comfortably wear your earbuds.

Can you wear earbuds with a double helix piercing?


If you decide to use this method, you should get gauges which are a tad smaller than your standard size and find an earbud that will fit snugly into each hole..

  • Place the earbud in your left (non-pierced) ear before inserting your double helix piercing.

Should I rotate my ear piercing?


Rotate the piercing to change the angle of the hole in your ear from straight up to down and back again. This uniform rotation will help minimize any irritation you may experience. Also, you should practice a few times when nobody is looking.
If you have a slight angle towards the back of your piercing that you feel is uncomfortable, then rotate it into a slightly more angled position.
