With their active noise cancellation and customizable fit, these have been designed to deliver an exceptional experience that's tailored to your individual needs. But with so many features, it can be hard to know if they're working correctly. That's why it's important to test your AirPods Pro audio quality.

First and foremost, it's important to make sure your AirPods Pro are fitted properly. To ensure a comfortable fit with a good seal, go to Settings > Bluetooth and tap the More Info button next to your AirPods in the list of devices. Then select Ear Tip Fit Test and tap Continue before pressing the Play button. This will help you determine the best ear tip size for a snug fit.

Once your AirPods are securely in place, check the Active Microphone Settings by going to Settings > Bluetooth and tapping on the i icon next to your AirPods. Then select Microphone and make sure that Automatically Switch AirPods is enabled so that they determine which microphone is most suitable for use on the fly.

To make sure that sound is playing through both of your AirPods at once, go to Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual on iOS devices or Settings > Accessibility on Apple Watch and enable Mono Audio mode. You can also enable Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio if you want a more immersive experience – this can be done by going into Settings> and selecting Automatic, Always On, or Off under Dolby Atmos settings.

Finally, listening to some music is an easy way to check if everything is working as expected – make sure that any music you listen to supports Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio as this will provide you with a more immersive sound experience when using AirPods Pro or Beats Fit Pro with Spatial Audio turned on.

Testing the audio quality of your AirPods Pro might take a few minutes but it's well worth it in order to get the best sound possible from them!
