I’ve been relying on Gen 1 AirPods for some time now and upgraded to the Pros. I’ve noticed that with jaw movement, whether while talking or chewing, the AirPod Pros loosen up to the point of falling out of my ear. I can literally feel the initial snug grip as it seems to be slowly letting go. Anyone else?

I am just the opposite. My original AirPods were constantly coming (or at least feeling) loose. Ended up getting some very thin silicone covers which did help a bit. But with the Pros - granted using the large buds - I have not had any feeling of them coming loose. Perhaps you should try a bigger bud?

I am having the same issue also. All I have to do is make a smile and either the left or the right will fall out just from smiling point. I have the medium tips on so I am going to try the other two to see if that fixes it. If I push them in my ear hole initially they will stay but like I said if I smile or move my ears they will literally fall out and I can catch them with my hand.

I am using the largest ear piece.

You are not alone, I'm having the same problem, and Ive tried all 3 tips (No to mention the only way for me to pass the seal test is if I'm pushing them into my ears while running the test)

this is the EXACT reason why I returned mine. When I was running on a treadmill, it would loosen up and the music would sound funny until I readjusted it tightly in my ear. I tried the different ear tips and they wouldn’t fit.

thank god I have my old AirPods still and didn’t sell them/give them away. The regular AirPods stayed in my ears just fine
