Airpods Connected But No Sound? Fix It Now!

AirPods are very popular, and frankly, it’s no surprise since you can make calls, listen to music, and even use Siri with them. Just stop in the middle of a busy street, look around you for a while, and then notice how many people are using them. To use AirPods, you must set them up with your iOS device, Mac, or any other Bluetooth device (YES! including Android phones). However, if you are trying to use it on Android or any other non-Apple device, you might not get all the features.

Several Apple users have reported that they can’t hear any sound in their AirPods, among other problems. In other words, the AirPods have stopped playing any sound from the iOS device without warning. If you are experiencing the same issue, there is no need to panic because you’re not alone.

This article explains what to do when there is no audio even though your device indicates a connection, from basic troubleshooting to resetting your AirPods.

Airpods Connected But no Sound - Airpods Pro

1.-Clean your Airpods

When was the last time you properly cleaned your AirPods? By properly, I don’t mean wipe your AirPods with a T-shirt or any cloth within your reach. You must clean them properly so that you do not damage them. Apple explains how to clean your beloved Airpods the right way.

2.-Turn your Bluetooth ON

Way to obvious, but still worth checking. Go to your settings, then Bluetooth. Toggle the Bluetooth on. If Bluetooth is already on, turn it off and wait around 5-10 seconds. Turn it back on.

3.-Make sure your AirPods are charged

You can’t expect sound if there’s no power, can you? Just place them in the case for a few hours to charge them.

4.-Update your device

If Apple releases new updates for AirPods, it automatically gets updated when the paired iPhone or iPad has a Wi-Fi connection. Now you have to search for iPhone or iPad updates. If any update is pending, make sure to install it.

  • Settings  > General > Software Update.

5.-Check volume limit

There is a setting on your iPhone that can limit the maximum level of volume that you can hear. This is a maximum level setting, and you may have set this too low (this is off by default). So check the level or turn it off to get the maximum volume.

  • Settings > Music > Volume Limit.

6.-Reset your Airpods

Some users solved the problem with this. To reset your AirPods, follow the steps:

  1. Put AirPods in their case.
  2. Close the lid and wait 30 seconds, then open the lid.
  3. “On your iOS device: Go to Settings > Bluetooth and tap the”i” icon next to your AirPods.Then tap Forget This Device and tap again to confirm.”On your iOS device: Go to Settings > Bluetooth and tap the “i” icon next to your AirPods.Then tap Forget This Device and tap again to confirm.
  4. Press and hold the Setup button for 15 seconds until the status light flashes orange.
  5. Now reconnect your AirPods by placing them close to your device. Follow the steps on your device’s screen.

Note step 3: If you don’t see your AirPods in Settings > Bluetooth, go to the next step.

7.-Disable Automatic Detection

You can turn off your iPad or iPhone’s Automatic Ear Detection feature. Now turn it off and check if the problem persists or not.

  • Settings > Bluetooth > AirPods > Disable Automatic Ear Detection.

8.-Reset network settings

If you followed the steps above and still have issues, it may be a connectivity issue. When you reset network settings, all the Bluetooth, WI-FI networks, and call settings will be removed.

  • Settings > General > Reset Network Only.

Set your Bluetooth connection with your iOS device after your device reboots.
