How to use Ear Tip Fit Test with AirPods Pro for the Best Fit
Apple has created a cool new feature in AirPods Pro called Ear Tip Fit Test, which helps users identify the best ear tips size for them. This feature uses microphones inside the AirPods, and sound output from the drivers, and uses algorithms to suggest if the fit is right or whether you need to change the tip.
Why do you need to use this the ear tip fit test? A better fit will provide better sound quality, deeper bass and rich lows for your music, along with the best noise cancellation, because the feature helps to create the best seal with the right ear tip size.
Unlike features like active noise cancellation and transparency mode, which can be enabled from any platform that the AirPods Pro are connected to, Ear Tip Fit Test only works from iOS or iPadOS devices. Here is how you can use it to get the best experience out of your AirPods Pro (or AirPod Pros?).
Use Ear Tip Fit Test to Select The Best AirPods Pro Ear Tips Size
AirPods Pro ship with three different in-ear tip sizes. This helps in customizing them for the right fit for each ear shape. Apple has also considered that some people might require different ear tip sizes for each ear, and the app also helps to identify such situations.
Make sure that the AirPods Pro are already connected to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch before proceeding.
- Go to Settings > Bluetooth and tap on the ‘i’ icon next to your AirPods Pro.
- Tap on Ear Tip Fit Test.
- Tap Continue on the first screen.
- Place the AirPods in your ears and press the play button. The test will start and check each AirPod.Once the test is complete, the app will tell you if both AirPods are using the right ear tips and create a good fit. It will say ‘Good seal’ in such a case. If it does not, try a different size, until you get the right one. The app will also recognize and notify you if it sees that you need different ear tip sizes for both ears, for the best fit.
Even though the test app, and the small size of AirPods Pro, make this process seem very simple, it is far from it. Using complex algorithms and internal microphones, Apple provides a quick and easy way to help you get the best out of your AirPods.
