How do I make call quality better on AirPods Pro?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To improve call quality on your AirPods Pro, there are a few steps you can take. I’ll walk you through the process.

1. Ensure a strong connection: Make sure your AirPods Pro are connected properly to your iOS device. Check that Bluetooth is enabled on your device and that your AirPods Pro are paired correctly. Sometimes, simply disconnecting and reconnecting the AirPods Pro can improve the connection.

2. Clean your AirPods Pro: Over time, earwax and debris can accumulate in the mesh of your AirPods Pro, affecting the sound quality. Gently clean the mesh using a soft, dry cloth or a small brush. Be careful not to insert anything into the mesh that could damage the speakers.

3. Adjust headphone accommodations: The Headphone Accommodations feature in iOS can help enhance the audio experience on your AirPods Pro. To access these settings, go to Settings on your iOS device, then navigate to Accessibility → Audio/Visual. Toggle the Headphone Accommodations switch to on. This will enable additional settings to customize the audio.

4. Customize the settings: Once you’ve enabled Headphone Accommodations, you can tweak the settings to your liking. There are three tunings available: “Bright,” “Balanced Tone,” and “Dark.” These tunings adjust the audio output to suit different preferences. You can try each one and see which works best for you.

Additionally, there is a boost amount setting that allows you to increase the volume of quiet sounds. It ranges from “Off” to “Strong.” Start with a slight boost and adjust it according to your needs.

5. Test and adjust: After making these changes, it’s important to test the call quality on your AirPods Pro. Make a call or use a voice recording app to assess the improvement. If needed, you can go back to the settings and make further adjustments until you find the optimal settings for your AirPods Pro.

Remember, everyone’s hearing is different, so what works for one person may not work for another. Take the time to experiment with the settings and find what suits you best.
