After seeing early rumors, I was skeptical of the AirPods Pro. I have always had discomfort problems with silicone tips. The vacuum seal they create and the pressure on my ear canals causes my ears to hurt after as little as 15 minutes. What’s more, I’m on the skinny end of the bell curve when it comes to fit for the non-Pro AirPods. Not only do they not cause any discomfort, they never fall out.
That being said, the early reviews on the AirPods Pro have given me reason to think that they may avoid the problems that have kept me away from similar offerings in the past.
