Well, I think you probably want to consider of getting Silicone cover for your ear tips and the case. There are plenty of choices in Lazada.

https://www.lazada.sg/catalog/?q=air...6335481aJs1f22
Nah, I saw those same silicon covers on aliexpress for 80 cents. Not paying 15 bucks for it.

Anyway, the tolerance is soooo tight between the case and airpods, i doubt it will close once you put the silicon on.

I'll just have to live with the dents.

Thanks. Managed to get in touch via chat. Have ordered for a mail exchange for my Airpods. Understood that you have prior experience exchanging Airpods via mail.

Is the return done via courier such as DHL at your own expense?

Apple also got corporate discount? Devices included?
just went in to the online portal to take a look at the EPP price for my company. it did indicate that purchase of applecare+ can enjoy EPP discounts as well.

price cut wise nothing much to shout about. rather similar to education price.

I hate that it's so smooth though, my fingers are slightly oily and I dropped it soooo many times it has dents on the buds already, there is no good way to extract the buds from the case, so annoying.
Haha. True. Iíve got no long nails and fat fingers. Always have problems taking out the ear buds from the case. Design nice but not exactly perfect for me personally.

Itís only been like a week and less than 10 hours of actual use and I kenna the rattlegate issue with the right side of the AirPod pro. Going to take em back to Apple for one to one exchange since itís still within the 14 days of purchase. What luck. If happens the next time Iím going for refund. This issue shouldnít exist in such an expensive earphones.

If it havenít happened to your AirPods, please get AppleCare+ if possible. The hardware seems to have problem, you donít wanna be stuck with an expensive paperweight.

Check with the staff before buying if your coy can enjoy corporate discounts, showed my staff ID and got AC+ for $43.87
you did it at the apple store? or via the hotline?

I bought my airpods pro from qoo10, but it seems like it says my serial number is not eligible for extended coverge ??
