Some AirPods owners might sometimes notice that their headphones suddenly began to play quieter. Moreover, the problem is not that AirPods are malfunctioning – sometimes iOS itself limits the maximum volume level, and it’s enough to know a few tricks to help fix the problem. Often the problem may even be the low battery level of the iPhone. Therefore, if you suddenly noticed a decrease in the volume of AirPods or AirPods Pro, the tips below will help you figure out what is the reason – whether you need to go to a service center or just tweak something in the settings.
How to adjust the volume on AirPods
When your iPhone’s battery is close to zero, iOS may decide to lower the maximum volume to extend battery life. This is a feature of the power saving mode, but the function only turns on when you have a really low battery.
If your iPhone’s battery is charged and you activate power-saving mode from the control center, you probably won’t hear any difference. However, if you turn it on when the battery is low, it may affect the volume. Sometimes one AirPods earphone starts playing quieter than another – and here’s how to fix it.
- Open “Settings”;
- Go to the “Universal Access”;
- Scroll to the menu “Audiovisual item”
- Check the “Balance” item.
- If the balance slider is not quite in the middle, you will notice a difference in volume. Adjust it.
How to increase volume on AirPods
Often, AirPods owners are not even aware that the volume on their headphones is limited. The fact is that such an item is in the settings of the iPhone itself, which is called “Volume Limit”. I found that the function was enabled on my iPhone, although I remember for sure that I did not activate it. Check and you.
- Open “Settings”;
- Go to the “Music”;
- Scroll to the “Volume Limit” menu;
- Go into it to make sure that the restriction is turned off.
