How to change the Volume Balance between Left & Right in Airpods?

Are you someone who likes to fine-tune their AirPods settings down to the smallest detail? If so, you might be interested in changing the volume balance between the left and right channels on your AirPods. This feature can come in handy if you're trying to compensate for hearing loss or just prefer sound to be slightly louder in one ear than the other. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Open Settings

On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings.

Step 2: Go to "Accessibility"

Scroll down and select Accessibility.

Step 3: Tap on "Audio"

Under the "Hearing" section, tap on Audio.

Step 4: Select "AirPods"

Now select AirPods.

Step 5: Adjust the volume balance

You will see an option to change the volume balance between left and right channels. Move the slider towards the left to decrease volume in the left AirPod or towards the right to decrease volume in the right AirPod.

You can also select “Mono Audio” if you prefer to hear the same audio in both AirPods.

That's all it takes to adjust the volume balance between the left and right channels on your AirPods!


This might not be a feature that everyone needs, but for some, it can make all the difference in their listening experience. By following these simple steps, you can easily adjust the volume balance between your AirPods and get just the right amount of sound in each ear. Don't be afraid to explore other accessibility features on your Apple devices, as they can be incredibly helpful in personalizing your tech experience.
