Choose the best ear tip size
Your ear tips should make a good seal with your ear canal. When the fit is right, you experience better noise cancelling, and music has a rich bass sound.
Your AirPods Pro (2nd generation) come with four sizes of ear tip. The medium size comes already attached. Extra small, small and large sizes are in the box that your AirPods Pro came in, under the tray, nested inside the charging cable.
Your AirPods Pro (1st generation) come with three sizes of ear tip. The medium size comes already attached, and small and large sizes are in the box your AirPods Pro came in, under the tray, nested inside the charging cable.
Ear tips have been designed specifically for their AirPods Pro generation to deliver the highest-fidelity audio experience. Use the ear tips that come with your AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro (1st generation) ear tips have noticeably denser mesh than AirPods Pro (2nd generation) ear tips.
To check the size of an ear tip, unroll its edge and look for XS, S, M or L etched on the inside of the ear tip near the base.
Try inserting the AirPods with the medium-sized ear tips in your ears so that the AirPods are seated comfortably and securely. If you can’t get a good seal, try adjusting the AirPod or switch to a larger ear tip. If the ear tip feels too large in your ear or is uncomfortable, try a smaller ear tip.
You can buy a new set of ear tips from the Apple Online Store for your AirPods Pro (1st generation) or your AirPods Pro (2nd generation). Alternatively, you can buy another set of ear tips from an Apple Store or other authorised retailer.

How to remove and attach ear tips
To remove an ear tip, pull firmly with your fingers at the base of the ear tip, where the ear tip is attached to the AirPod.
To attach an ear tip, align the ear tip with the oval-shaped connector on the AirPod. With your fingers at the base of the ear tip, push the ear tip onto the connector until you hear it click into place.
