However, the good part is that recalibrating AirPods is pretty easy. The first thing you need to do is play your favorite music on your AirPods. Then turn your volume all the way down until you stop hearing anything.

Now keeping the AirPods still in your ears, you need to swipe down from the upper right corner to access Control Panel and disable Bluetooth.

Now start playing music again. However, this time the sound will come out of your iPhone’s speakers. Once more, turn the music volume to absolute down.

Once you are done doing so, you have to reconnect your AirPods and then wait for the confirmation sound and then play music once again. Finally, adjust the volume at your comfortable hearing level.

Turn Off Low Power Mode

Low power mode can extend the life of your phone by disabling background refresh in most apps. Plus, it adjusts a lot of settings that can reduce the battery. Even it impacts your phone’s volume output by changing the maximum volume your iPhone can produce.

So in case if you are in the low power mode, then AirPods may not be as loud as it should. But you can easily fix this issue by disabling the power mode. However, it will make your iPhone’s battery drain fast.

Check the Audio Balance

Another reason why your AirPods isn’t louder is because of the audio balance. This issue appears when you put your phone into low power mode.

So go to Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual and look for the Balance slider. The slider should have L on one side and R on the other side. Plus, you will see a slide control in the center.

In case if the slider is not properly positioned, then use the slider to adjust it, and you should be good to go.

Adjust Equalization in Sound Settings

You can also use EQ or equalization settings to make your AirPods louder. By adjusting EQ, you will be able to get a better listening experience and impact the volume level of your AirPods.

To adjust the EQ on iPhone, go to Settings > Music and scroll down until you see the Playback header. Then tap on EQ and ensure it is set to Off. After you have checked that EQ is disabled, test the volume level of your AirPods again.

If it doesn’t do anything, do make sure to adjust the EQ according to your preferences and see if it has worked for you. Also, check out How to Connect AirPods to Apple TV?
