Why Are My AirPods So Quiet? (Read this first)

If your AirPods are too quiet, there are several possible causes. First, your iPhone may be in Low Power Mode, which can reduce the volume of your phone.

To turn off Low Power Mode, simply swipe to the right on the screen to toggle off the feature. 

Secondly, you should charge your AirPods as soon as possible. If all else fails, contact Apple Support to get a replacement pair.

If this doesn’t work, you may be using your iPhone in Low Power Mode.

This will make your AirPods extremely quiet, as they will not be able to process the volume.

This issue may also be due to the volume limit of your iPhone. 

You can disable this feature by sliding the volume slider to the right and pressing the “button” in the middle of the screen. 

In either case, you’ll need to make some tweaks to the settings of your iPhone before your AirPods become completely silent.

Cleaning Your AirPods

If your AirPods are a bit too quiet, you should clean them regularly. Sweat and earwax can collect on the speakers of the AirPods. 

You can do this by removing any dirt or sweat from them. Then, reinstalling the app, resetting your iPhone’s Bluetooth connection profile, and adjusting the volume. 

If all this doesn’t fix the issue, you should take your AirPods to a local Apple service center or authorized Apple service center. If the device is still not functioning correctly, you can have it checked by an Apple-certified technician.

The most common cause for low volume is the music app on your iPhone. If your AirPods are too loud in one ear, check the volume slider in the middle of the screen. It should be in the middle. 

Sometimes, even the slightest movement can cause sound imbalance. If you can’t locate the slider, you’ll have to restart the music app on your iPhone. If this doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to use the Equalizer option on your iOS device.

AirPods Software Issue

The first possible reason why your AirPods are playing at low volume is due to a software problem. 

The app can be overloaded with background apps. Close these to prevent interference with your listening experience. 

Try refreshing the Bluetooth connection on your iPhone. You can then reconnect your AirPods. This should fix your problem. If all else fails, you can try the other steps below to fix your AirPods.

Usually, your AirPods are very loud when turned on. However, if you’re using them while in low power mode, you’ll find that they’re too quiet to hear any music.

In the event of a battery failure, you should not worry about these issues, because they’re not harmful to your hearing. You should be able to adjust the volume level with the AirPods manually.

How to Make AirPods Louder

Your AirPods may be too quiet and aren’t working right. Try restarting them. This will clear the software and give your device a chance to recover from the bug. 

You can also try holding the volume up/down buttons for a few seconds until you hear the desired volume. 

You may need to do this a few times to get it right. If that doesn’t work, try turning off your device and restarting it.

Next, try adjusting the volume level in the app. You can also use the calibration feature to adjust the volume. 

While the volume of AirPods will decrease once they are below 20%, you can raise the volume by 12% or even higher. Then, you can disable the EQ completely if you don’t want to hear any echoes. 

If this doesn’t work for you, try lowering the volume to make them quieter.

If this still doesn’t work, try turning off the Low Power Mode. If you do, your AirPods won’t be as loud as they should be. 

When you use Low Power Mode, you’ll notice notifications that the volume of your AirPods is lower than it should be. To save battery life, you should always charge your AirPods. To turn them off, press the “Off” switch again.

The volume of AirPods can be adjusted in the settings. The volume of your AirPods will change accordingly. If the headphones are too loud, turn the Volume Up button. 

If the volume is too low, you can try removing the Low Power Mode and increasing the volume. If you’re working at home, however, you shouldn’t raise the volume too high. You’ll be able to hear the sound more clearly.

Depending on what source device you use, you can adjust the volume of your AirPods. If you’re using a Mac, turn off Low Power Mode to increase the volume. If you’re using the AirPlay feature, set the volume to “Louder” and you should be able to hear your audio more clearly. This will help you hear the music in a louder way.

The next step to make your AirPods louder is to turn off Low Power Mode. To turn this off, turn the slider to the left or right to increase the volume of your AirPods. 

You can also adjust the volume in mono by turning the toggle bar to the left and right. After you’ve set the minimum and maximum volumes, you can use the slider to make them louder. You can turn the volume up again.

First, tap the volume control button on the left ear. If you’re using iOS 14, tap the volume down and up buttons. You should now see a Bluetooth volume control. 

Toggle this to increase the volume. This will enable Bluetooth volume. Once this has been turned off, you can now adjust the volume of the AirPods. If this doesn’t work for you, try resetting the AirPods.

How to Set AirPods Volume Properly

First, you’ll need to make sure the volume on your AirPods is set to high. You can turn the volume up and down by summoning Siri on your Apple device.

Then, make sure the audio/visual balance slider is in the middle. This will ensure that the volume on both ears is equal. To do this, hold the volume slider down while talking to Siri. Once you’ve completed these steps, you can go ahead and adjust the volume.

To do this, first, turn off your iPhone. Then, connect your AirPods to your iPhone. If the headphones are plugged in, you’ll see a menu displaying the volume levels on both devices.

Tap on the volume level icon, and then tap on the device’s settings menu. If your volume level is high, tap the slider, and then press the “Calibrate” button.

Now that you have your iPhone and AirPods connected, go to the iPhone’s volume settings. In iOS, go to the Settings menu. Scroll down to “Lower Volume”. If you find that the volume level is low, you can use the “Raise Volume Limit” option to adjust it.

In the same way, tap the button in the middle to turn off the balance feature. If you still have trouble setting the volume, try turning off Bluetooth and restarting your iOS device. If this doesn’t work, try calibrating your iPhone or AirPods.

To make sure your AirPods volume is high enough for your listening pleasure, turn them up using the calibration feature. Then, connect your iPhone to AirPods and tap the Bluetooth symbol in the iOS Control Center.

Then, click on the microphone icon on the device to disable Bluetooth. If the volume is too low, try raising the volume by 12% or 20%, depending on the situation. If you need more volume, just press the Volume Up or Down buttons on your iPhone.

After adjusting the volume, you may have to turn the AirPods to the mute position and connect them to your iPhone. Then, you should press the Volume down button to turn them off. Then, connect your iPhone to the AirPods and tap the Bluetooth icon again.

This will enable the Bluetooth connection. Lastly, the volume should be set to a higher level.


To adjust the volume of your AirPods, you’ll need to double-tap the Siri button on your iPhone. 

Then, you’ll need to tap the microphone on your iPhone and the Volume Up button on your iPad. 

Then, you’ll need to hit the toggle button on your iPhone to enable the Siri function on your iPhone. Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll have a perfect volume on your AirPods.
