You can easily lose your hearing if you do anything to your ears. Avoid turning up your volume too loud if the issue is that you’re working from home and your neighbors have suddenly discovered music.

How To Make Airpods Louder?
In case your AirPods or AirPods Pro aren’t producing enough volume, or if you just want to crank up the volume a bit, here’s how to do so.
Quickly Increase The AirPods’ Volume
AirPods‘ global volume is adjusted based on the volume settings of the source device. You may adjust the volume of your AirPods by changing the volume on your iPhone while listening to music or podcasts. AirPlay presents an exception. Changing the phone’s volume has no impact if you are streaming video from your iPhone to an Apple TV. Instead, you must change it on the Apple TV.
Especially when you use Siri to adjust the level, it’s simple to remember this. Siri will respond when you ask it to increase the volume on your AirPods, but in reality, it is merely sending your request to the original device. That device’s Siri can also inquire as to how loud the music is. Siri will respond with a number that represents a fraction of the maximum level achievable when you ask it, “Hey, Siri, how loud is this?” You may also tell Siri to lower the volume by saying, “Hey, Siri, lower the volume to 50%” or “Hey, Siri, lower the volume.”
Clean Your Apple AirPods To Enhance Their Sound And Volume
Your AirPods are in your ears, which makes it possible for earwax and other debris to go inside. These earphones are microscopic and transmit sound through discrete gaps that are easily blocked by debris. Although the cleaning procedure can be a little complicated, we have a thorough guide available to assist you. To sum up. To clean your AirPods, you’ll need some cotton swabs, rubbing alcohol, a fresh toothbrush, and paper towels.
When cleaning, keep in mind to be systematic and careful to avoid missing anything or breaking fragile items. Remove any wax or other obstructions from the earphones’ ports, and keep dust from settling deeper into the buds by keeping the ports clean. Thereafter, you should clean the rest of your AirPods. You should also clean the case so that you don’t transfer any lingering debris back to the earbuds.
Check to verify if your AirPods Pro is a comfortable fit in your ears after you have finished cleaning everything else and while you are doing so.

In this manner, you can enjoy a louder volume without having to increase the volume of your AirPods.

Downloading a high-quality copy of the music, such as one that is 256kbps or 320kbps, is the only method to solve this problem. Similar to how a low-quality, compressed movie (144p or 360p) obtained from Twitter or YouTube could have poor audio. Think about downloading the HD version (720p or more).
