How To Make Your AirPods Louder

Increase The Volume The Default Way

If your AirPods aren’t much louder then maybe their volume is down. You can simply control the volume of your AirPods by using the volume control buttons. You can do this if your iPhone is near you. However, if you don’t have your iPhone or Mac with you, then you can simply ask Siri to do the work for you.

Siri is a smart assistant that is paired with Apple devices to enhance their functionality. It is quite efficient in performing basic tasks like controlling the volume, finding information on the internet, and such. You will have to wake up Siri and then ask it to increase the volume. To do so, follow the steps given below-

  • Double-tap either of the AirPods to wake up Siri, and then tell it increase volume. This way Siri will increase the volume of your AirPods. Do note that this will only work for the first generation of the AirPods.
  • If you are using the second-generation AirPods, then simply say Hey Siri and this will wake up Siri. Now simply say increase volume and the volume will be increased.

Asking Siri to increase the volume will only increase the volume by 12%. However, if you want to do more than that, then you can use a command like ‘Hey Siri, increase volume by 20%,’ or ‘Hey Siri, increase the volume by 100%.’ Similarly, you can ask Siri to decrease the volume as well.

This is the only way of how you can increase the volume of the AirPods and make them louder. However, if the volume isn’t loud now, then maybe the AirPods need recalibration.

Recalibrating The AirPods

If the volume isn’t increased by the above step, then you can try recalibrating the AirPods with your iPhone. To recalibrate your AirPods, follow the steps given below-
