Suspect of Crackling sound in my AirPods Pro

 

I got my AirPods Pro during the first year of the launch and was fortunate enough to experience the sound quality during the initial days. However, post few months of my purchase there was an unexpected announcement from Apple that the initial batch of AirPods Pro had manufacturing defect and the product would be replaced for FREE. Post this announcement, I become suspicious on my product as well, however I convinced that my product was working fine, and the disturbances was due to external factors. The initial suspicious activities and the convincing factors are as follows
  • Right Side AirPods Pro Ear tips had issues in seal: So, when I was trying out Apple’s in-built Ear Tips test, the outcome was often error and it had suggested that to change the ear tip size or align the AirPods pro properly in the ear. Initially, I had searched about this concern in internet and often found that the suggestions were to slightly re-align the AirPods pro or tryout the memory foam tips due to ear size differences among users. Since these were convincing reasons, I had ruled out possible manufacturing defects and continued to use the product with its flaw.
  • Occasional crackling sound while hearing music: The other annoying issue that I had encountered while using my AirPods Pro was that I used to hear some annoying hustling sound while listening to music and during while I was at my work room. Since, my work room either had a slow-moving fan or air conditioner running, I assumed that the hustling sound may be due to its background noise.
The above concerns and convincing factors made me to use the AirPods pro without thinking about the manufacturing defect. To read more about how I identified my AirPods Pro manufacturing defect, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”
