Apple’s AirPods have helped a lot of imitators to launch a similar product. There are countless replicas available in the market which offer the same services as AirPods, but obviously quality is different.
AirPods can be highly liberating with no buttons or wires attached to control the volume. It is becoming a necessity for the general public. Whether it is to exercise or watch a podcast, to cook while watching a show on any social media to going out for a stroll, you can have AirPods with you.
Since its launch in December 2016, two more versions have made it to the market. The original AirPods and the second-generation AirPods. There are a few notable differences between the two versions, but a common feature is that they have no keys or buttons. The volume or slider on the phone directly works fittingly well.
For iPhone Users
The iPhone users can use Siri to control the volume level. For first-generation AirPods, a double tap on the earbuds will enable Siri to monitor and control the volume according to the user’s will. For the second-generation AirPods or the AirPods Pro, a voice recognition function is needed to be set up in the iPhone through which Siri is asked to adjust the volume according to the user’s choice.
Siri can increase the volume by almost 12% to 80% till you ask it to stop. If not stopped, it will continue to raise the volume which can become uncomfortably loud for you.
At times the AirPods and iPhone are not in the same wavelength and need to be calibrated. The two devices may have different full-volume set up which can affect the sound quality. This can be fixed easily.
Use the volume keys on the iPhone and turn down the volume completely. Now, disable the Bluetooth on the iPhone and put on AirPods in your ears. Let the music play on the iPhone speakers and then connect the AirPods by turning on the Bluetooth. This will enable the AirPods to have the same volume as that of your iPhone. Play the music in full throttle and adjust the volume wherever needed. This is how to make your AirPods Louder while using the iPhone and other Apple products.
To keep AirPods working for a long time, it is advised to be very careful with the usage especially when cleaning them. It is very important not to use anything wet or damp so that the speaker’s mesh does not get wet.
There is no need to poke inside the AirPods with anything sharp like a toothpick or a needle, else you may end up with permanently damaged AirPods that will be of no use. A soft-bristled toothbrush or a cotton swab is preferred to remove any kind of debris or impurities from the mesh of the speakers.
