Were you buying earbuds with noise cancelling? Because that's sort of the whole point... if they don't seal right then the noise cancelling isn't as effective.This whole 'fit test' baffles me. When I need earbuds, I buy them, put the size that fits right on, and then go listen to music.
This whole it must fit right to sound good? Never heard of it until PBP came out.
Not sure what you mean. After you press the play button, it runs the test and displays the results and you can then press the play button again if you wish. No scrolling required🤷🏻♂️The screen shot I took is the first and after that I thought there was a malfunction but you scroll up and then another play button will appear.
On my Xs Max you need to scroll up after hitting the play button, then hit the lower play button on the screen. Apple store was not aware of this this as well.Not sure what you mean.

Yes, the seals don't hold at all for me, and then once they fail, the bass and noise cancelling is gone.I tried all size caps on each ear pod and cannot get an air seal. They work - air seal - if I press hard on each one and hold them in so the problem is not a mechanism failure. I made one ear pod work and seal after an hour of struggle. How? By angle adjustment and twisting the pod hither and thither and fiddling about. I left the one I made work in and changed the other one’s cap size, leaving the working one in and tested again - both then showed a seal failure.
It is quite obvious that the ear cap seals are not designed for all ears! Also they work and fail once one moves ones head or moves one’s jaw which, given the poor fit, releases the tenuous air seal.
Went back to Apple genius and he gave me a demo of his .... shock horror - his failed to seal and work either.
THEY GAVE ME A TOTAL REFUND.
It seems to me that they need to get better ear cap fittings. Unless you get a total seal the whole purpose of them is defeated.
I suggest we are at the Guineas pig testing stage. WAIT before buying is my advice.
How hot do those make your ears? I've always found over ears to burn up after about an hour.Unless one gets a 100% air seal they are useless for sound cancelling. My large Bose Quiet Comforts really do work - but they really are LARGE. Hence the initial attraction of the Air Pod Pro.
Apple must urgently work on a better design of ear cup Attachment. Perhaps a funnel shape one can wedge in? Not all ear canals are at the same angle - DUH!
It was embarrassing to see the Genius bloke demonstrate that his own Air Pod Pros didn’t work either.
