They have a serial number for one, and you’d never be able to use them around the owner as they’d automatically connect to their device. These two things aside it’s probably pretty easy to just grab them and start using them once you’re in a safe location. Why not steal some good headphones though?

Also if you steal them don’t forget to clean out the previous owner’s ear wax, it gets stuck in Apple earbuds.

I've had packages from a few places either not arrive, or get stolen (I don't know what happened) and I was... minorly inconvenienced until a new one came. This is how I learned you can just lie.

Medications are usually left in my mailbox but I've had one not arrive before so I learned to have an extra bottle on hand (that's just decent emergency prep too.)

A lot of self-checkouts have an "in cart" or "skip bagging" option (button) or something like that, I can't remember how it's worded. Basically you're telling the machine you put the item in the cart so it won't look for a change in scale weight.

Anyway my method has been to pretend to scan an item while covering the barcode in some way, and put it in a reuseable bag in the cart. Two things though, make sure the employee working self check-out is away or if you're lucky, busy with another customer, and the other thing is make sure you've already scanned some actual items and put them in the bag. This way, that way there's a number of things in the bag and I've noticed most employees don't bother to look long enough if they come by. If you get caught you can say "oh whoops" and then at the end of scanning things you can just tell them you changed your mind and don't want it.

One time I wasn't even intending to steal and the scanner didn't work, I didn't notice, and the scale said to put the item back. I grabbed the item but the employee was nearby and heard it and came by to help. However she was also working so quickly she took the item from me and had assumed it had been scanned because she then put it in the bag and did her thing to override the machine, basically helping me shoplift.

Feel like it should be noted for US people, ITS has now claimed two killings in California of tech CEOs. Think what you want about tech CEOs, this is just to let you know ITS now "operates" in the US.
