AirPod Pro offers unparalleled comfort, noise cancellation, and sound quality. These little silicone tips are a vital component of that comfort and fit – they also help minimize outside noises and prevent your earbuds from slipping in your ears. So, from time to time, you may want to change the ear tip size or simply clean them. This is the best way to make sure your AirPods perform their best.

In the past, changing ear tips on AirPod Pro has been a bit tricky. Many people have found it hard to remove the old ones – especially when they don’t want to damage them by pulling too hard. That’s why I’ve created this article – to show you the right way to easily and safely remove airpod pro tips!

To remove an existing ear tip, firmly hold the base of the ear hook with your fingers and then pull. You can even wrap the base in a paper towel for extra grip. This should be easy to do, but remember to use gentle pressure – excessive force could break or damage the ear hook or attachment mechanism.

When you’re ready to insert a new ear tip, simply align the ear hook with the oval-shaped connector on the AirPod and push gently. You should hear it click into place. If the new ear hook doesn’t slide in easily, you can try inverting it first to get a better fit. If that doesn’t work, you can always give the ear hook a good clean before trying again.
