How to Make Siri Louder on AirPods?

If your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, is nearby, you can use the volume buttons on them to increase the volume of Siri on your device.

This will simultaneously increase Siri’s volume on your AirPods. That’s because volume controls on your devices directly affect the volume of your AirPods.

If you don’t want to hold your device, you can make Siri louder using your AirPods without lifting a finger. If your AirPods are first-generation, double tap either one of them to summon Siri, then tell Siri to increase volume.

If you have second-generation AirPods or AirPods Pro or newer, activate the “Hey Siri’ function on your device. Call Siri by saying, “Hey Siri,” then ask the virtual assistant to increase the volume.

AirPods Pro users can set one earbud to activate Siri and command it to increase volume.

When summoned to increase volume, Siri automatically becomes louder by 12%. If you want, you can tell Siri to increase volume by a certain amount, say 10, to prevent getting louder voices.

The “Announce Messages” feature on iPhones and iPads allows Siri to read your incoming messages while you listen using your AirPods.

When a message arrives, you can ask Siri to read the message. To get Siri to read the messages louder, ask Siri to increase the volume.

How do I Increase Siri’s Volume on My AirPods Pro?

You can adjust Siri’s voice on your AirPods by saying “Hey Siri,” then request the digital assistant increase volume. You can say something like “Increase the volume” or “turn up the volume.”

Why is Siri So Quiet on AirPods?   

Siri can be quiet on your AirPods or AirPods Pro if your earbuds and device have different volume calibrations.

To fix this, put your earbuds in your ears and start playing audio. Turn your device’s volume down to 0%. You shouldn’t be able to hear any sound from your AirPods or AirPods Pro.

Disable Bluetooth connection. Play music through your device’s speakers and turn the volume down to zero. Reconnect your AirPods and adjust the volume.

If your earbuds and device’s volumes are calibrated, but Siri is still quiet, the issue could be your AirPods or AirPods Pro.

The volume could be low due to dirt, dust, wax, and other debris. Use a dry cotton swab or a soft-bristled brush to clean your AirPods and AirPods Pro.

Detach the silicon tips on your AirPods Pro and clean them using water or rubbing alcohol. Avoid using damp clothing to clean your AirPods, especially the speaker.

How to Make Siri Have the Same Volume in Both AirPods?

If one earbud sounds louder than the other, adjust the accessibility setting on your Apple device.

Navigate to your accessibility setting, tap it, then tap “Audio/Visual.” Ensure the slider on the “Balance” panel is in the middle. This will balance Siri’s volume in both earbuds.

Can I Use Siri to Adjust the AirPods Volume?

You can use Siri to adjust AirPods volume. Double-tap your first-generation AirPods to alert Siri, then tell Siri to adjust the volume. For second-generation and later version AirPods, Siri can be adjusted by activating “Hey Siri.”

Once it is activated, you can adjust your AirPods by saying “Hey Siri,” then say something like “increase volume” or “decrease volume.”
