Apple AirPods are wireless earphones designed to offer listeners a hands-free listening experience. Their incredible audio performance makes them ideal for enjoying music, calling calls or activating Siri as needed - however they can sometimes suffer from issues which are difficult to rectify; such as their mic not functioning correctly which could disrupt listening/voice calling experiences; however there are various simple solutions available for these issues.
One of the first steps you should take if your microphone is malfunctioning is to restart your device. This may give your AirPods a fresh connection with your iPhone and help resolve any potential issues. Also try talking or recording voice memos to see if everything is functioning as it should be. If these steps don't help resolve the problem, take your earbuds to an Apple store or authorized repair shop for further troubleshooting.
Another method for testing your AirPods microphone is placing them back in their case before connecting them to a different device, just in case any software issues exist on that particular phone or other device. If your AirPods' mic still fails after being connected with multiple devices, chances are good they may require cleaning or replacement.
At the end of each stem, near the black mesh circle, make sure that the microphone ports of your AirPods are clear of dust or other debris that might clog their microphone ports. To check, wipe each microphone port down gently with isopropyl alcohol-soaked cloths instead of using water-based solutions which could potentially damage them further.
Trustworthy AirPods are essential to having an enjoyable listening experience, and using these tips you can easily test them and rest easy knowing you will receive high-quality sound reproduction. If your AirPods are experiencing any issues, don't hesitate to reach out for support from Apple. They will gladly guide you through the process of having their microphone tested and fixed as well as suggesting possible solutions to address your specific AirPods problem. Apple is well known for their customer service, and will work quickly and efficiently to address your problems. In addition, you can read reviews by others who have had their AirPods mic tested by Apple in order to make an informed decision as to whether or not these headphones will meet your needs.
