Apple says the issue impacts just a little number of AirPods Pro units that were manufactured before October 2020. If among your buds is faulty, you may observe one or more of the following habits:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone
Active Noise Cancellation not working as anticipated, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background noises, such as street or aircraft sound

The program originally covered AirPods Pro for two years after their preliminary purchase. It has actually now been extended to three years, however it does not extend the standard guarantee coverage of the earphones.
Just for AirPods Pro
Apple will only replace the problematic bud (left or right, or both if essential); it will not offer you a new set of AirPods if just one is exhibiting the fault. This program uses only to AirPods Pro– not AirPods or AirPods Max.
