Do Apple earbuds hurt your ears?
I totally agree with you: Apple EarBuds and AirBuds are terrible earphones, they are produced with a slippery hard plastic, so if they don’t perfectly fit your ear they will not stay in place or they will even hurt your ears.

AirPods are marginally smaller. But a more likely factor is that AirPods just rest in your ears, while EarPods have to overcome the pull from the cord. They don’t hurt like the wired ones because there is no tugging, but they are basically the same size.
