As an AirPod owner, I’ve been frustrated by the question of ‘can you blow out AirPods?’. I’ve heard all sorts of rumors, from people saying it’s impossible, to others saying all you need is a little puff of air. After doing some research and testing, I’m here to share my findings and what I’ve discovered about the possibility of blowing out AirPods.
It is possible to blow out AirPods. However, with regular use, it is very unlikely that you will blow out your AirPods or AirPod pros.
AirPods are designed to be able to withstand much higher volumes than someone would normally put them through.
In addition, if you were to put your AirPods at a volume that might blow them out, it is actually your ears that you should be worrying about since loud volumes can do significant damage to your hearing.
It is strongly recommended to avoid putting your AirPods at high volumes in order to protect your hearing.

Can you blow out AirPods?
It is possible to blow out AirPods. However, they are designed to withstand much higher volumes than someone would normally put them through.
In addition, the sound quality of the AirPods should stay relatively high throughout their lifetime.
If you find that your AirPods start to sound worse, it is actually more likely to be due to ear wax build-up on the AirPods and you should just clean them.

Can you blow out AirPods pro?
It is also possible to blow out AirPods pro. However, it is also unlikely that you will do it since they are designed to handle much higher volumes than someone would regularly put them through.
It is also possible that their sound quality will worsen over time. However, it is also the case that ear wax build-up, in the ear tips, will have a lot more to do with it than the actual AirPods becoming worse.
Can you fix blown-out AirPods?
If you do blow-out your AirPods, it won’t be feasible for you to fix them. The only option you would have would be to take them to an Apple store and to see if they can fix or replace them for you.
However, it could be the case that your AirPods are not actually blown out and it is something else that is causing your AirPods to sound bad.
It could be the case that you need to clean the ear tips, that there is a bad connection with your device, or that there is an issue with the app you are using.

Does full volume damage AirPods?
Using AirPods at full volume should not damage them. However, it is strongly recommended that you do not listen to your AirPods at full volume because it will likely damage your hearing.
If you are going to listen to them at full volume, make sure it is for very limited time periods (less than 10 minutes).
In general, you want to listen to them at a minimum volume that is acceptable for you. Usually, anything above 60% of the max volume will be too much.
However, this will depend a lot on the app you are using and what you are listening to.
