Frequently Asked Questions

Do AirPods Pro Hurt Your Ears?

AirPods Pro ear tips can sometimes hurt your ears.

This could be because you’re using an ear tip that is bigger than your ears or that you have a silicone allergy.

If the silicon ear tip is causing your ear to hurt, you should check for a silicone allergy and maybe switch to memory foam tips instead.

Do AirPods Pro Fall Out?

Yes, the AirPods Pro falls out sometimes, but this is mostly because of wrong ear tip sizes. The AirPods Pro comes with three different sizes of ear tips, small, medium,
and large.

If none of them fit you, you can go to an Apple store for a fitting or use memory foam tips. If none of these work for you, you can just send them back to Apple and they will send you a replacement.
