If you want to turn off the microphone from active listening, that is done through the settings. The way you will do this is to go onto your iPhone or iPad into the “Settings” area.

From there, click on “Bluetooth” and then find the AirPods in your list of devices. Click on the information icon and then “Microphone.”

Once you are on this screen, you can then go to voice control and turn off whether the AirPods will listen to your voice for Siri, Voice Control, or anything like that.
