Don't rip the ear tip off using the end. Make sure you gently, but firmly pull the AirPod Pro ear tip from the earbud close to where it connects.

It takes a little force, so don't be afraid to pull it out.

  • Align the new ear tip so that either the "L" or the "R" align with the black stripe on the AirPods Pro earbuds.
  • Snap in the new ear tip. (You should hear it snap.)
  • Fold back the silicon ear tip to the normal position.

Don't misplace the AirPods Pro ear tips you just took out. You never know when you'll need them in a pinch.
