You'll want to know how to do an Ear Tip Fit Test for AirPods Pro if you've just bought a pair of Apple's flagship earbuds.
While they're some of the best headphones around, the AirPods Pro won't offer their full performance unless you make sure the earbuds themselves are properly seated and properly fit in your ear. Noise cancellation won't work as it should, sound will be subpar and you may even run the risk of dropping your earphones if they're too loose. On the flip side, earbuds that are too tight will cause you discomfort and stop you wanting to use them.
Thankfully, Apple includes a set of differently-sized ear tips for you to use with the AirPods Pro. All you have to do is figure out which ear tips are right for you.
While that may sound simple, if you're anything like me, you may straddle two different sizes. Or you may be new to earbuds and unsure about how they should feel or sound. In either case, you'll want to turn to the Ear Tip Fit Test to tell you which ones work best.
We're here to show you how to do an Ear Tip Fit Test for AirPods Pro using your iPhone or iPad.
Note: The Ear Tip Fit Test only features as part of iOS and iPadOS. You can't run this test using macOS.
