Investigating the Causes of Low Volume on AirPods

It’s possible that the volume settings of your phone or music app are not set correctly, resulting in lower volume from your AirPods. To fix this, double check that the equalizer is turned off, no volume limits are enabled, and low-power mode is disabled. If all of these settings are correct, try resetting your AirPods by pressing and holding the setup button on the back of the charging case for at leat 15 seconds.

Investigating Uneven AirPod Volume Levels

One AirPod volume being lower than the other is most likely caused by a buildup of debris in the main speaker of that AirPod. This can be due to an accumulation of earwax, dust, dirt, or other particles. To fix this issue, you should clean your AirPods with a dry cotton swab and/or brush to remove any debris from the speaker. If this does not work, you may need to replace your AirPods altogether.

Troubleshooting Low Volume on Right AirPod

If your right AirPod has a lower volume than your left AirPod, it could be due to a few different causes. First, it might be due to a hardware issue, such as debris blocking the speaker’s sound waves. If this is the case, try using compressed air to blow out any debris that may be blocking the speaker. Second, the issue could be caused by an imbalance in the audio settings on your device. This can be easily fixed by adjusting the balance settings on your device so that each earpiece is outputting an equal amount of sound. Finally, if neither of thee solutions worked, you may need to reset your AirPods and try calibrating them with your iPhone.
