In an updated support document, Apple said the original AirPods Pro ear tips have “noticeably denser mesh” than the second-generation ear tips. Apple did not provide any additional details, but the mesh density could result in acoustical differences.
“Ear tips have been designed specifically for their AirPods Pro generation, to deliver the highest-fidelity audio experience,” the support document says. “As a result, use the ear tips that come with your AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro (1st generation) ear tips have noticeably denser mesh than AirPods Pro (2nd generation) ear tips.”
Despite the mesh differences, the second-generation ear tips do fit the original AirPods Pro, so they are still physically compatible.

The second-generation ear tips are available in a new XS option, while the original ear tips remain available in small, medium, and large only. Both generations of ear tips are available on Apple’s online store in sets of two for $7.99 in the United States.
