Are you havng trouble with your AirPods volume being low after cleaning? You’re not alone! Many users have found that after cleaning their AirPods, the sound quality and volume suddenly become much lower than it used to be.

The good news is that fixing this issue is usually pretty straightforward. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what causes AirPods volume to become low after cleaning, as well as a few simple steps you can take to fix the problem.

First of all, let’s discuss why this issue mght occur in the first place. The reason is because moisture can get into the AirPods when they are cleaned and cause corrosion of the internal components. This corrosion can then lead to a decrease in sound quality and volume coming from the AirPods. To prevent this from happening in the future, make sure to always use dry cloths or paper towels when cleaning your AirPods and avoid using any kind of liquid or spray cleaner.

If your AirPods already have experienced a decrease in sound quality or volume after being cleaned, then there are a few steps you can take to try and fix the problem. The first step is to disconnect your AirPods from any devices they may be connected to (such as an iPhone). Then, turn off Bluetooth on your device, wait for five seconds, and turn Bluetooth back on again. This will help reset any canges that may have been made while cleaning your AirPods.

Next, try connecting your AirPods back to your device and see if that helps improve their sound quality and volume. If it doesn’t work then you may need to repair them by opening up the case lid and pressing down on both of the connectors inside until you hear a chime sound come out of them (this will indicate that they are repairing). Once repaired try connecting them agan and see if that fixes the problem.

Finally, if none of these steps work then you may need to replace your AirPods altogether as thre could be some internal damage that cannot be fixed through normal means. We hope this blog post has helped shed some light on why your Airpods may have had their volume reduced after being cleaned as well as how you can fix this issue yourself without having to buy new ones!
