Anyone use them without the rubber tips? I just got mine and can’t stand the feel

I am sure you can but then it defeats the purpose of noise cancellation since there is no longer any seal.
I’ve always used my Gen1 left air pod only lol
Very rare I use em both at the same time

Should just stick to the regular Airpods then. I don't see a benefit to the pros without the seal.
That’s my thought. My wife bought em for me but I changed the tip to the smallest size and still not liking the feel

Just return them. Get AirPods 2 and give OG To son. Seems the best choice if you don’t like the feel of the Pros

I love the pros, but they keep falling out of my ear, even with the smallest ear tip.

This is the hack that a lot of us with wonky ears are using. Buy a set of small memory foam earbuds. Take out the middle plastic ring. Then roll the memory foam over the airpod earbuds and they fit like a charm. You can even cut some of the bottom off the memory foam so they don't stick out as much. They fit perfectly in the case as long as you take the plastic center piece out as outlined here.

You'd never know mine were altered by looking at them.

Thank you. There was also a link in that page to some eBay tips too. Maybe I’ll give them a try.
