One thought on “Apple Research App Supports AirPods Pro in Hearing Study

  • For what it’s worth, the Apple Hearing Study does not support EarPods with a stereo mini connector, even though the Research app claims to support iPhone 6s and later. The Hearing Study only works with Lightning EarPods and AirPods.
