AirPods Pro ear tips

If your AirPods Pro ear tips have an issue that’s covered by the Apple Limited Warranty, they can be replaced for no charge. Contact Apple Support.

If you lose them or you want extra ear tips, you can buy two new pairs of ear tips through the Apple Online Store. If you order them through the Apple Online Store, there’s no shipping fee.

Get ready for service

When you return your AirPods for service, you'll need to take some additional steps, such as:

  • Returning your Charging Case with your AirPods or AirPods Pro. We need the case as part of your service. You don't need to include the Smart Case that comes with AirPods Pro Max.
  • Removing the ear tips from your AirPods Pro. Keep them, because we won’t be able to return them to you.
