The standard AirPods Pro ear tips may not necessarily fit all ears the same way. Some are loose, some are tight while some fit just right. You can choose the desired ones by selecting the right size or let Apple determine it for you via its Ear Tip Fit test.
How to select your best AirPods Pro ear tips?
The Cupertino-giant has added the Ear Tip Fit test as a handy feature to help you find the right tip size. Why? Because your AirPods shouldn’t just sound better than any other wireless devices but also fit right. Apple makes sure that the earbuds are designed to fit right into your ear canal, rather than just sit in space outside your ears.
- on your iPhone, go to Settings.
- Select Bluetooth.
- Hit the Info icon next to your AirPods Pro name.
- Locate Ear Tip Fit Test entry.
- Hit the Continue button.
- Press Play to test.
- Check the results.
Your Apple earphones are shipped with three rubber earbud tips of different sizes including,
- Small silicone ear tips
- Medium silicone ear tips
- Large silicone ear tips
The medium size comes already fitted into AirPods while small and large sizes come bundled inside the box that your AirPods Pro comes with, under the tray, nestled inside the charging cable.
When you select the desired size, make sure it sits comfortably and securely. Also, see to it that the tip makes a good seal with your ear canal to offer rich bass sound, unmatchable sound quality, and superior noise cancellation.
How to do Ear Tip Fit Test?
On your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth.
Under My Devices, tap the info icon next to your AirPods name entry.
Scroll down to Ear Tip Fit test tab.
When directed to a new screen, hit the Continue button at the bottom of the screen.
Place AirPods in both ears so they are comfortable and secure. Then, press Play to test the fit.
Do not remove your AirPods until the test has finished.
Check the Ear Tip Fit results.
Note – If the noise level is too high in your current location, you’ll be prompted to test ear tip fit in a quiet environment. Similarly, if the test suggests making some modifications like adjusting or trying a different AirPod Pro earbud tips, try adjusting your AirPods Pro and test it again. Then try a different size. It’s quite possible that you might also need different sizes for your left and right ears.
AirPods Pro ear tip fit test not working?
Instead of hitting the Play button as described above in the Ear Tip Fit Test, scroll up the page. You should see another Play button to press. Hit the button and your problem should be solved.
How to attach or remove ear tips
To attach an ear tip, align the ear tip with the oval-shaped connector on the individual earbud. With your fingers at the base of the ear tip, push the ear tip onto the connector until you hear it click into place. Similarly, to remove the ear tip pull firmly with your fingers at the base of the ear tip, where the ear tip is attached to the AirPod.
Hope that makes sense!
