"Significant" sound quality is debateable, considering ANC is likely the main difference to factor in; you gotta give something up, the regular Airpods already have pretty good sound, and if you don't need or want ANC, then you probably don't need or want the Pro.The APP's have significantly better sound quality than the standard AirPods while also offering noise cancelling. The regular Airpods have essentially zero noise cancelling. I consider them to be completely open.
Will definitely try this. I know I had to take them off to clean them because I let my daughter try them and she has kinda waxy ears that are small since she is little and it forced some wax into the inner part (not on the screen) so i ran water the opposite way to get it out and used a swab for the residue. Unfortunately I forgot them today so I'll have to wait until this evening, but thanks for the tip!I know this sounds crazy, but suck hard on the inner grill. Me and a lot of others are having that issue and discussing it in another thread and many people have seen the issue temporarily fixed by doing that and/or cleaning the grill with loctite or similar wall tack. We initially thought it was software-related too until someone discovered that.
I'm pretty sure I attached them back to the paper when trying the other tips because I didn't want to lose them since there were Christmas presents and wrapping paper clutter all over the room. And actually I'm not even sure if i tried the other tips until the next day, so that could be it. I don't get a good seal with the other sizes so it's nearly impossible to check if the regular sized ones are defective in some way vs. the others. As I mentioned above, I forgot them at home so I can't check right now but I really appreciate the tip.This happened to me the other day- I noticed as I was trying to get the best seal and reduce wind noise a couple weeks ago. After getting off my bike I switched from the large to medium tips and noticed that one ear sounded timy and far. I reset the AirPods and same thing.
Turns out that a small Amount of sweat got on the earbuds paper holder and made a thin layer of paper material get stuck to the mesh. I used a paper clip to remove the stuck paper but damaged the mesh in the process. :/ it’s all good though it sounds normal now.
The update have been pulled from the server. so atm you will not get it.I’m a little late to the party, but my AirPods Pro are currently at firmware level 2B588 and the noise cancellation works great. Anybody know if there’s a way to skip this problematic update?
Yeah I was also confused about the tech site's testing where they said it affected low rumble noises. For me, it's just like you, where the midrange (people talking, etc) just comes right through now, whereas before, people were blessedly muted. 😇I’m also a little confused because what I’m experiencing seems like reduced noise canceling in the mid/treble range. Still seems to block out the hum of the NYC subway, but today I could hear people talking and it really surprised me.
