AirPods Pro 2: Apple explains why the ear tips are not compatible with the original AirPods Pro

H Apple gave an explanation today as to why the new silicone ear tips for the AirPods Pro second generation are not officially compatible with the original AirPods Pro.

In an updated support document, Apple said the ear tips of the original AirPods Pro have a “noticeably denser mesh” than those of the second generation. The company didn’t say more, but the mesh density could lead to acoustic differences.

“The ear tips are designed specifically for their own generation of AirPods Pro, to deliver the highest fidelity audio experience,” the support document states. “As a result, use the ear tips that come with AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro (1st generation) ear tips have a noticeably denser mesh than the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) ear tips.”

Despite the mesh differences, the second-generation ear tips match the original AirPods Pro, so they’re still physically compatible.

The second-generation ear tips are available in a new XS option, while the original ones remain available only in S, M, and L. Both generations are available on Apple’s online store in sets of two for $7.99 in the US.
